I'm a sous chef

Remember that? I do

I mainly specialize in seafood,(coquilles st. jacques,lobster bisque etc.).I love cooking,I love seafood,and I love the Grateful Dead,and I combine the three.Listening to cd's of Dick's Pick's in the kitchen,wearing tie-dyed chef coats,and conducting my existence in a laid back manner are my ways of bringing the delight of being a Deadhead to this millenium.
If anyone wants to talk about favorite GD jams/Ratdog/Phil & Friends/Jorma,Jack & anything Hot Tuna,or pan searing tilapia,drop me a line.

Thank YOu

Rose,

First of all thank you very much. About 3 or so years ago a well off businessman from Nigeria came to me and told me a story that really touched me. He was on a business trip in the country side in Nigeria and one night he was trying to fall asleep but he could not because he heard a baby crying. So he left his room and went to the where the baby was crying to learn that the child was in very bad shape. He took the child and her parents to the hospital and paid for all the hospital expenses. When he found out that the problem was actually the fact that the child was dehydrated due to diarrea and the solution to this problem was very cheap and very simple he was amazed. The whole situation could have been prevented. So he started a NGO in Nigeria for the distribution of (Oral Rehydration Salt (ORS)) to the poor and his mission is to solve the over all problem that faces his society by educating the population about the use of ORS. Ironically my company manufacturers ORS which is basically salt and Sugar etc. So now we are working together to end the 2 million + children who die each year due to something as simple as dehydration. This stuff costs about 10 Cents per treatment. It is so easy! To learn more about this NGO please go to www.bettercare-ng.org. In the future I plan to do more than just supply this NGO so please people check out the site and maybe there is a way that you can help too. We also supply PSI. www.psi.org.

freelance illustrator

I get to be an illustrator and I must say that I love my work or "play" as I call it. My inspiration comes from our little girl, our pug Betty, music, animals, people. I work on such projects as logos, illustrations for magazines, websites, books, newsletters etc. Hopefully my art makes people smile and giggle. I love to create whimsical animal and people characters. Another plus is working with others as a team to create the best solution. The internet allows me to easily work with people all over the world which is truly wonderful. Right now I'm working on a childrens book that my brother wrote and I am illustrating. Hopefully we can get the right publisher to take an interest.

So, interesting to see all

So, interesting to see all the good our community does and ppl thinkl were all just druggies!!

I was Director of Activities in a ret. home for many moons. I was injured on the job, and had my neck fused so my doc said find a new line of work. So my dhb said what do YOU want to do? So I have now been in college to get my degree in photography. I love doing fine art. Nature and landscapes are my thing. I have also done maternity shoots, babys, weddings.

My kind of stressful day is lugging the gear out on a really cool new trail!!

I will be a featured artist in The Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve Art Show in July/sept. if your near Murrieta CA come by. The trails are just stunning, such a preety place,vernal pools, creeks, old oaks. There's mountain bike trails and horseback too.

Walk-n the Dog

That's the name of the company and we do just that. My girlfriend started this business up a few years ago and I decided to leave the old unhappy job behind and spend my days driving around, loading and unloading dogs, taking them to Oakland trails up in the hills and having a nice walk. I get to listen to Dead CDs all day while driving if I want and go see more live music in the evenings. The taper's section rules by the way. We have aspirations to open a B & B someday in wine country, pet friendly of course.
I hope it's cool to put this here. Please let me know if it isn't.

Stand-Up Philosopher

Not quite sure what I do now, but during the school year I'm a philosophy prof and the checks keep rolling in. I love teaching and getting to write on any damn thing that interests me at the time. I've got articles on the history of math, the foundations of relativity theory, on how to make ethical judgments, the environmental ethic of American Nazi party, and sportsmanship in the Kasparov/Deep Blue chess match. I just finished editing The Grateful Dead and Philosophy which should be on shelves in a few weeks. Man, I love tenure.

Real estate appraiser. Not a

Real estate appraiser. Not a bad job to have. I get to drive around in my car, music up loud and grooving. I get to meet some pretty cool people (and some not so cool.) I get to see some pretty cool houses (and some not so cool.) But the best part about what I do is the dogs (and various other pets.) I love getting to hang out with other people's animals while I'm inspecting a house.
