Over&Under

Retired from a Park Superintendent position in '09 after 30 years in municipal Parks & Recreation.

My next door neighbor has a landscaping company and he's really been bugging me to come to work for him part time doing estimating and project development....if we can come to terms I just might take him up on it.

Financial Advisor-  If things work out, clients get to fish/hunt/golf/run dogs when they decide to quit, for the rest of their lives, with no worries.  Lately, it has been a big "IF"!

Will be retired ten years this June. Hard to remember what I did but I didn't like it. Very glad I don't do it any more.

I worked for a county health dept. Gave building permits for new and revised construction for the dept, basically water supply and sewage disposal. Busy office, county had over 10,000 applications per year. Now I remember why I hated it.

I'm a partially retired investment counsellor and unlike Fuess I have a great record and many clients that are retiring on the wealth I created for them. :)

I'm one of the IT Managers at one of Penn State's largest non-University Park locations.  My specialties are user support, solution design, data security, technology usage, and making sarcastic remarks.

Most importantly, I'm "The Mac Guy"  :cool:

I am a Plastics Engineer. It's like Mechanical Engineering but designing with plastic materials not metals. I actually have a degree in Plastics Engineering. Not many places offer it as a degree. I've been doing it for 17 years. I like what I do but I don't necessarilly like everyone I work for.

I am at my third job since graduating. I love MN and like my job much more than my last job, cellular phone company in NW suburbs of Chicago. I have been progressing West with each new job. I will probably be in MN for a while. I love it here and the GF & her daughter will keep me here. Once the daughter goes away to college moving to Montana will be a serious discussion.
