archaeology

I'm another old hippie who forgot to chase the cash.
Instead, I look to understand the prehistory of us all. I teach the night course version of human evolution, and I do some pretty cool research.

I look at food residues inside of old pottery. Buried in the charred stuff is evidence of what was being cooked. I use a microscope and an image analysis system and look at the microscopic bits and determine what was going into the pots. I love archaeology and microscopes, and I have even learned to love multi-variate statistics. Got a lot of research published in national and international journals.

I was too young for the inspiration to come from Sandoz, but I sure loved the inspirational material produced by Bear Owsley. In fact, most of my research was just so inspired! So, long live all of us who never really gave up on the sixties!

Alternative Energy

I work on wind turbines and it is an awesome field to be in was a carpenter in the truest sense of the word and due to the economy it went away and this came along. So right up my alley since I like to turn wrenches and work on something that is something so much bigger than all of us and will benefit future generations instead of satisfy someones ego( sorry worked on too many Mc Mansions )

I hang around bars

I like the night life, the bands and all. I get up when the sun goes down and go to bed when it comes up. You might say I'm a vampire "Draw the curtains, curse the glare", you know how it goes.

I never thought I'd make this a profession but, hey, it pays the mortgage and I'm not really working. I just moveed my way up the food-chain and now I just do the rounds. Got a steady job.

Lot of people I know aren't making it. At least I stayed in the same fucking line long enough to get lawyers and bondmen on retainers.

Papas Boxes Cigar Box Stringed Instruments

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to invite all of you to visit our website

www.papasboxes.com

We handmake cigar box instruments. Right now we have soprano, concert, tenor and baritone ukuleles, and a 5 string banjo...the 4 string banjo and a 6 string guitar are in the prototype stage and we hope to have them released in January.

Papa's has both completed units, and kits so that you can experience building your own instrument. These also make excellent unique XMas gifts...

We are also running a banjo video contest too...with the chance to win one of our 5 string banjos, which is valued at $400....see below for details....

Amy & Bill

I make wrinkles and advertise them as creases

No, really I am a Bookseller and Bookstore Manager for one of those Big Box stores. I love it most days because it's like a dream job, but working for a big company like that has its drawbacks.

I also do some blogging and sell used books on the side. We hope to relaunch our site in January - www.chinacatbooks.com

tour>kitchen>school>stocks

After several years of touring I found myself bumming around the country and decided it was time to get a real job. i ended up cooking in restaurants for many moons and finally realized that tho i loved cooking I did not like the long hours for little pay. After working in the kitchen at a country club and seeing all the stock brokers driving fancy cars and playing golf all day i figured that would be a better gig. I got my crap together, got some govt loans and went back to school. I ended up with a finance degree and a job with a wall st firm. I basically book the trades that the brokers are making and make sure everything flows smoothly...not the high paying job everyone thinks of when they think "wall st". Not that it's a bad job, it's just not going to afford me the early retirement i was hoping for ;)
