    I am a CFO?!

    I was working in logistics as a freight broker in a bigger city due to poor job availability at the time. Due to my medicinal usage of cannabis, even with a card, it made employment an issue. One day, the gentleman whom I did my internship with (also my best friend's dad), called me up and asked if I would want to do bookkeeping for a new venture. I did not hesitate to get out of my miserable job in the big city. Little did I know I would be working with the sacred herb.. In the weeks that followed, I went from bookkeeper, to CFO, to having a little bit to do with everything. It is surreal to me how much someone can feel valued in the workplace by just offering involvement. I am beyond blessed to be where I am today. I cannot determine if this is sheer luck or if the universe has a plan. Regardless, this change in employment has been life changing in many ways; all of them positive.

    Until this pandemic insanity I worked on the ferry boats on the Bay and drove a tour bus. Now I sit on an island waiting for a miracle.

    Work and my first novel

    I work for a consultant engineering company--primarily stormwater, mining, construction design and permitting applications that address requirements for all governmental agencies. Lots of paperwork, calculations and Autocad. BUT, that's my day job. I just published my first novel on Amazon (here):

I've taken the Grateful Dead quiz thats on his songfinder link. Sometimes it's not as easy as it sounds. Kinda knocked me down a few pegs, but it is fun to play.

Been down so many roads. . . Papermills. Roughnecking in the offshore oilpatch (got the dislocated hip to show for it). Sold textbooks in Mississippi, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Real Estate appraiser. For the past 13 years I've been an Environmental Codes Enforcement Officer for the largest city in a small southern state. The last 7-8 years I've supervised around 7 officers. Our job is NOT to shed light, but to tell people to clean up their nasty yards - repair or remove that clunker rusting in your front yard - pick up that dumpsite you've created. . . All that and so much more! Keeps the neighborhoods from becoming so rundown. Actually helps keep the crime down. Try as they might, they can't MAKE me wear a badge. A well chosen word gets better results than a shiny piece of tin. Enough ramble. Time to go to what keeps me sane(?) - writing lyrics and torturing my guitar. . . Peace

I work in a lovely office during the day punching a keyboard. (which is where I am right now lol) they pay so little attention to me here , its quite hilarious really. There was one day where i did 2 hours of actual work in a 8 hour period. I swear i'm living the script from Office Space . Aside from that i'm also the editor, writer and photographer for Cincy Groove Magazine ( http://www.cincygroove.com ). I just started it not too long ago and plan on making it my day job by the end of the year. I have been shooting concert photos for 10 years and have ben a website designer for 6 years so starting the music magazine website seemed like the next logical step. I would love it if people would go check it out and let me know what you think http://www.cincygroove.com Scott

It only has to last until the end of the summer. I work in an enormous natural foods store and I hate it. It's really because of the shitty pay. I managed a natural foods store in VT for years but now that I'm down south I took a huge salary cut. Just less than 50% to be exact. Mary is a vet tech and she loves her job. I'll quit working at the begining of August so that I can have a month and a half to chill out before I start school. There is light at the end of the tunnel!

i have the greatest job. i am now an assistant store manager of a paint store. something completely new for me. i have been cooking on many levels for almost 25years now and have also made a nice living making dresses, body piercing, hair wraps and jewerly and a line of kids tye dyes and batiks that we sold locally on the boardwalks and at shows. withthe times a changin' i had to sit back and figure out what i am good at. i am a bit of a hustler thanks to many years of tour and tourist and i know color!!! so i b/s my way into to a paint position and in a short time was made in store manager. i credit my years of craftful creativity and still jam out at the store. i would never be where i am today if not for the grateful dead!!and so many pro painters are dead heads!

hipmoma, I live in Spokane, Washington , the Western end of the Rockies. I have met folks on this site from France, Wales, England, Germany, Czech Republic, Spain and Lincoln Nebraska as well as many other places. Have met one new person from my area, we are going to get together in person for lunch and talk, funny thing is we lived about 30 miles away from each other as kids growing up in Iowa and both went to University of Iowa and now live here.

hipmoma,Wow, I first wrote in this section back on June 15, page 7, was refreshing my memory here, seems like lots has gone on since then and it has been a fun ride on this site. Things are not dead in Deadland. Ok, what I do in Spokane is often try to get out of it to land my wife and I have in Ferry County, Washington, least populated county in the state and much of which is the Colville National Forest. We have solar electricity in our small house there and a yurt and are out there so to speak. About 15 miles from the nearest town, surrounded by forest and several miles off the county road. Have seen bears, turkeys, deer, eagles at our place. Hope to move there someday, but circumstances have not allowed that yet. It is isolated, but we do have good friends in the area. In Spokane I bike, walk, garden and read and watch all the incredible birds and squirrels we have in our backyard here. In the past 9 months have been ripping and burning lots of Dead and other goodies I have received from the vines. Oh for a living I am a RN in a nonprofit mental health agency. Also do lots of volunteer environmental work on forest, wilderness and endangered species issues. Sounds like a busy week for you 65 hours, wow.

I am a 38 year old freshman at a local university here in Columbus. I have been in the hotel industry as a front desk man and like doing that. I speak Spanish and am working on my degree so I can teach or maybe land a job in a resort in Spain or Mexico. Still, English is the language everywhere, but where I hope to eventually live, Spanish will be it. Need more Sunshine then Ohio has to offer. Ohio is a great place, however. So many great folks here.

From the inside out. Work with Fortune 500 companies and have been able to influence, convince, shuck and jive a way for them to want to sell more of their 'green' products. Mostly energy/ water conservation, sustainable materials, indoor air quality (low VOC), etc. Trying to change the world from the inside out....hee-hee! I am one of the new folks on line and it would seem that highly optimized organic search results could be the reason for so many new people. Good links, title tags, and time do wonders for google page rank, if I could only remember what it was that I googled :-)

Like cosmicbadger and maye, a lot are new- I'm one of them, tho old in the sense that I always had this site as my web browser. In the pat it would conk out at times and on a few days it was out of comission altogether, so I couldn't even get on the web at work! i never signed on, just as a voyeur! Now my school district gave me a laptop and I have spent hours of time at home (like a good employee) become acquainted with it. just so happens that since it still opens up to this site- it was about time to join. As for me, I am an art teacher, this is year 25, 24 in the same district. I love it and have fun all day with the kids. And as reward lessons, we do tie dye! (and batik!) Ami

I own a retail and wholesale plant nursery in Monmouth County NJ . Im posting this on March 1st which is our opening day for the season and dusting off those rusty bones after a long winters nap made me feel a hell of a lot older then 42 . I guess gold will turn to grey and youth will fade away .I love what I do for a living , Ive been in the nursery business since I was 11 years old and to be making a living at what you love is a trip . LET IT GROW , LET IT GROW - GREATLY YIELD.

Well right out of college I was working as a full time photographer for a small newspaper. I loved it, until the assignments were drying up, and the editors didnt really care about the photos. So I left and now I work as a professional for the Boy Scouts..... its a job. Lots of nights and weekends and a ton of driving, I drive at least 2000 miles a month just for work. So I am looking for a way out, have been thinking about going back to school to teach but I need to bump up my GPA first. For fun I love being outside hiking, kayaking, etc etc, I am also a volunteer firefighter. I really enjoy helping other people.

I am a Field Supervisor for a small environmental firm in upstate NY. We deal mostly with hazardous material compliance in local businesses. I have seen some crazy s@#t that might scare some regular people. I have also done some high hazard work that might make you think we are nuts. In all reality I would love to get out of the biz and move on to bigger and better things. Most of my experience is in environmental something or other because that is what I went to college for. Happy Earth Day!

Otherone71 - We have a community radio station in Spokane, KYRS that was modeled on KBOO and is doing very well. My good friend Lupito took the idea and ran with it and now we have shows with many styles of music and covering many issues. It has been fun to watch what this come to fruition and blossom.

I'm a 19 y/o college student majoring in Math. Very new to the boards, got into the dead by listening to my dad's old tapes from the trading days of the early internet. It amazes me seeing so many people from so many different fields together.

and, newgen, that's always been one of the cool things for me, how all kinds of people who would probably have never met without the Dead scene converged, and in a lot of cases became good friends.

Today I was helping a customer who had no fucking idea what they wanted and had absolutely no clue what the fuck they were talking about. I work in a natural food store as a full service butcher. There are days when I have the most morbid thoughts about the sad reality of my day job and then there are days when I really enjoy dealing with the mindless cattle(customers). Part of my job is retrieving bags of ice for people's groceries, something that I truley LOVE to do. I catch myself poking holes in the bottoms of those bags occasionally and offering a sinister chuckle for those who give a shit, which is no one really. You see the ice machine is isolated in a room, I'm all alone back there. Just when I thought I was losing my goddamn mind, and my beautiful wife and adorable son would have to watch me soil diapers in a well padded institution, I went to check the mailbox. I recieved my official acceptance letter for film school today. I believe I am one of about ten students to get in, and one of five Americans. Tomorrow I'm going to give my two week notice, not poke any holes, and milk the cows for what they're worth because it is the first day of the rest of my life. Tears of joy, satisfaction, and relief. Stay cool folks.
