I resemble that remark

That's quite a vague generality you tossed up here. I am not required to take any test in my line of work, which involves active supervision, new employee training, old employee updating, and performance review. Passion may be slipping away as I am real close to retirement.

lame, slow, uninformed, no passion for their work

and also a stunning lack of critical thinking skills and horror of people who display any.

since I had a job, finally, looks like I might have a pt job. It's not the marketing director for rhino, but, it's a job. Just have to pass a bg check, and since I'm not a criminal....wait, we are all outlaws in the eyes of amerika, thank the gods they aren't checking for that. :)
Just say "no" to drug tests. All they do is identify pot smokers, and if ya want happy workers, let them smoke pot, or, at least, don't test them for it.
Just an observation, but has anybody else noticed that people who have "drug free" positions seem, to me anyway, lame. slow and uninformed? No passion for their work? Just an observation.

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!

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

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....

If you order, make a note that you saw us on the for checking us out and we hope to hear from you soon...

Amy & Bill
