For health reasons I now work 1 day a week paid - University senior lecturer. I also do some training and consultancy in the area of media production and management.

Work (as it often does) spills beyond 1 day as for me it also includes research and publishing - I edit an academic journal (just been asked to do another), copy edit and do academic proofreading. Currently I'm contracted to write 2 books (one due April next year, the other sometime next year). None of this extra academic related work is paid. If my wife and I got paid for all the work we have done gratis we'd probably be quite rich dry.gif blink.gif . We try to be as self- sufficient as we can so that our low cash flow can pretty much match our low income.

Cheers,
Tony

:)Well we have found out how old everyone is but what does everyone do for dough,(money, rolleyes.gif job ) I myself am a mason and I cut and sell firewood.....



I'm disabled and get my money from Social Security Disability Insurance, been that way since 1991 sad.gif. I'm thinking about going back to school to become an X-Ray technician but I hear the waiting list to get in is like 4 years long sad.gif, even then I doubt my back could take the rigors of working again.

Last jobs I had were in IT but then I couldn't do even the most sedentary positions without taking time off every two weeks due to pain. Now, the bottom has fallen out of that market even if I could do it I wouldn't be making the money I once did.

I was about to say, that sounds tough in Louisiana. Do they provide you with mosquito spray also. I commented on the mosquitoes outside last time my brother from Mississippi came up. He said "you call these mosquitoes?" I took his boy out in my boat, and i could never convince him that he can walk through the shallow water. He said the poisonous snakes hang out there. Could not convince him that our water snakes are harmless.

LSU looking good. Are you all excited about them down there?

Hello! Coffee is the only drug left for me. What is the deal on your coffee? I am very interested in the different coffees of the world. There is a starbucks around the corner and I am their best and easiest customer. "Yes I will have a large cup of bold no room, you fruity latte mocha drinkers get out of my way."



And I think I have mentioned here before...I am an IT dude for a florist in the midwest. Stop by and see me.

Depends on the area, I think and what your specialty is. Where I am (DC metro area), the jobs are out there but the heavy demand isn't in the same areas it was even 5 years ago. I know I've had to adjust my skillset a lot in the last couple of years to hopefully be where the market is when I'm ready to change up.

Things are spreading out geographically into unusual locations too...like Google building datacenters in rural NC and the like. Companies like IBM have a lot of jobs that are location-independent. It's interesting times.

you may not be familiar with the old "Li'L Abner" comic strips. It ran from 1934 though 1977. Back then newspaper comic strips were a big thing, the most important thing in the paper to many people.

Anyway, Li'L Abner earned his living as a mattress tester, it sound similar to the above job.

A friend of mine in high school (mid-80's) had a summer job testing condoms one year. The job wasn't what you'd expect and wasn't fun from what I remember.
