Re: What do you do for a living?

Have worked as a mechanic (still work on my own cars motorcycles and boats) a roofer, a martial arts teacher and for the last 27 years worked for a major petrochemical company as an operator/supervisor. Definately not a millionare but could have been without so many hobbies.

Yup, horses, cattle, other livestock and the occasional pet if I am subbing for small animal vet on vacation.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Boring regulator. Boring international regulated garbage is my specialty. The same garbage that comes in on every boat or plane that arrives from outside the U.S. territorial waters to the U.S. mainland, districts and territories. 7 CFR 330.400 and 9 CFR 94.5 are my favorite reads.
