Where do YOU work?


Recommended Posts

Good response Picky. An other way is to apprentice, like Grandpa said "learn on someone elses dime". Get the advantage of someone who has made the mistakes, have a mentor, learn what they don't teach in school.

Of course I can't imagine running my photography BUSINESS without a Business degree from IU. The artistic stuff came from Dad, seminars, and my early mentor. Ok, you need all of the above to really make it.

I am a soil relocation engineer. I am also a multi lawnmower operatoring engineer as well. Ok ok, I work at a golf course. I move and lay grass(sod) and dirt. I have done a little bit of landscaping. But during the summer my main jobs are taking care of sand bunkers which includes raking the sand, edgeing and weeding around them. I also cut surrounds which is the outside hills of the greens and tees. I also cut the tees, collers, approches and around tress and mulch leaves in the fall. About a month ago I did some aerating and seeding to all aproches and tees. I have done some cutting to greens. As much as I hate this, weed eating. I have done some work to the irrgation system. Thats about it.

40 degrees! That must be nice. On my way to work this morning it was 33, and we haven't even started to get into the "cold" season yet! Wait until about January 15th, ah Picky? Now that'll be cold!

Yet I do envy your view! I'm currently in the back of the office... with no windows. 8.gif

Live in Richardson, Texas (suburb of Dallas);

Work as a Test Engineer at a small electronics firm (60 people) - just left a stint of 9 years at Texas Instruments, and it has been a GOOD move!

I also have a "side job" of repairing vintage pinball machine circuit boards; you'd be surprised how big of an interest there is in the arcade hobby, so it's like having two jobs. I'd do it full time if it paid enough, but hey, then it would not be a hobby!!

Multi-platform configurable Klipsch crossovers in the works.....
