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 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.
i own two companies that remanufacture and refill laser and ink cartridges. my employees had never listened to the dead before - now it has become part of their listening/life experience. bottom line - my job rules! take care!
1st time poster,long time fan.I'm a union carpenter in N.J.for 20 some odd years now.I also play lead gazoo at lunch time.
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.
we all shine on
to see some folks here doing good works and helping those who have so little. BRAVO!
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 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.
By the way folks, i feel very good when i am falling asleep at night knowing that i am helping people. It is a stressful business and actually i started this business when i was 28 years old with the opening of our Shanghai office. I must give credit to my wife's (Chinese National) who have given me 110% support. I make frequent trips to Africa to meet the people who are buying and working with us. It is a completely different world outside the U.S. and it really has become my normal way of looking at life. To see the children who you are helping is such a good feeling.
I own my own companies and work mainly in the field of generic pharmaceuticals and medical supplies for developing countries. I work with such agencies as PSI and UNICEF etc. We are their suppliers and we manufacturer all our products in China (where i live). I am back in Africa now working with a local company in Mali who we are looking to purchase some shares so that we can be in direct business with Africa rather than supplying large companies in Europe etc. When people ask me what i am doing these days i just say white powders and needles!! Ha ha.
