    What instrument(s) do you play? I pick a banjo, and a guitar a little. I wouldn't do so in the city limits of Nashville, since surely they'd ride me out of town on a rail.
    Which is bigger?: a) $100 per month since the Big Bang or b) the US National Debt.

    Here's a partial list of work I've done:
    As a kid: had a fish cleaning stand, sold vegetables door to door. In high school: worked as a beekeeper, pumped some gas, sold shoes and hamburgers. Worked my way through junior college as support staff at a combination wedding/funeral chapel. Also, harvested apples, and planted wine grapes. Lived for a while on a NH dairy farm and worked as dairy hand including feed crop work. We also did dirt work folks - backhoe, dozer, dump truck stuff. Plowed roads in winter. Moved back to CA - did some wrenching and welding. Began helping out in a friends machine shop which led to night classes and a twenty-some year "career" as a machinist. Returned to college followed by a stint as a teacher, mostly working with big hurt kids in alt-ed settings. Retired now but get in the occasional teacher mentoring gig and facilitate some parenting classes. Life is good. Retired nurse wife and I like to garden and look after the grandkids. The tractor helps me manage chores on our ten acres of paradise. How different all of our lives would have been were it not for the service of our veterans.
    If only I'd known then what I know now...except none of this existed back then.

    Spent 10 yrs as a Chef for the Marriott Corp, 25 Yrs as a Warehouseman in Freezers for an Ohio Food Distributor and 10 yrs as a Corrections Officer for the State of Florida. About 7 yrs ago the Mrs. told me that she was tired of me seeing the Boogeyman behind every door and/or corner. That it was time for me to retire. After stacking up enough nickles and dimes, I figured we just might be able to work it out. We bought land and built our forever home on it. Life for me now entails fixing whatever the boarded horses on the land destroy or just plain wears out. As for equipment? I'm either in it or under it!

    Myself? I'm the Director of Sales - Northeastern United States for Monster Energy.

    Pretty good gig. I've been with the company almost 8 years so I've lived nearly our entire growth story as its unfolded.

    Lots of great "fringe-benefits" as you can imagine!
