One of the lucky ones, I guess. I do whatever I want to do. My past life allows that (and funds that).

Healthcare Consultant

I am the Director of Account Management for the largest Catholic healthcare system in the country. I consult on best practices and cost savings opportunities.

I also run my own home repair business.

I tripped going up the escalator and I fell for an hour and a half!

Customer Service Manager

I work for a regional petroleum delivery company. We are in 6 states and I am in charge of the dispatch offices and well all the projects in the company. The gas business is one crazy business and lots of years before I retire.

I make petroleum based wax

what do you do for a living?

Only that which I want or desire to do. Retired Army 21 years as ADP operator/programmer (IBM punched cards through all the main frames), Retired Civil Service 21 years (Computer programmer, Computer Specialist) and 6 years Retired. Actually I am currently maintaining wife's inventory/records for small business on Ebay. In between times, learning all about POI files and how to improve them. Currently working on the Shell Gas Station file updating all of the Stations not in the current file. Alabama is almost finished with many additions and some changes. Gives me something to do so that I don't have to watch the big shin dig on TV later today.

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'.


I manufacture and distribute recreational pharmaceuticals. I give them to an associate who sells them in the corner!

I make oral contraceptives (birth control pills) and a friend is a pharmacist at a local big box.
