    Recently retired as aircraft design engineer. Now a rancher, and loving every minute of it - kicking myself for wasting 40 years of my life doing something that I hated.

    Spent 15 years as a Paramedic, my NREMT-P will be lapsing in March.

    Now, I work from home as a programmer. Definately less stress :D

    Good deal on the EMT-I.

    Pointy end toward the patient, sticky side down, and Lidocaine ain't chicken soup (three of the most useful things I learned as an EMT-P).

    Right now I am a Computer Network Engineer. (I can't figure out why they call me an engineer. My degree is in Biology.) At night and on the weekends, I am a bartender at a very popular restaurant in town. Being divorced with 4 kids has forced me to have 2 jobs. Thank God they are 2 jobs that I really enjoy.

    That's happening every place. I understand about the Californians. My ex-gf and I were out there in 98 looking at property. I heard the complaints then.

    The way things have turned out for me, I don't think I'll ever be able not to have 2 or more jobs.

    I started working at a trophy shop as an assembler and engraver in 1970 as a college student. Bought the shop in 1978, so I've been in retail awards and engraving for 36 years.

    Current plans are to sell or lease out my building and semi-retire, with a small office closer to home, and limited hours in the office. Then I'll have time to garden, shoot, work on my house and old John Deeres, the stuff I really enjoy.

    Anybody need an 1800 sq ft commercial building on the fast-growing south side of Pueblo, Colorado?
