Brad is the automation supervisor for a facility that destroys chemical weapons and I am the manager of the Outreach Office, which provides information to the public about it. We are both government contractors (for different companies). I really LOVE the fact that he is helping make the world a safer place--I told him I was not moving to Arkansas unless he found me a job telling people about what he does. Dang if he didn't find one! So here we are.

You can check out the projects here if you are interested: Chemical Weapons Disposal

Tammy--there are bubble suits with respirators in our field, too. Thankfully neither one of us have to wear them (although we do have M40 masks).

Exclamation what do you do for work?

I"m a little new here, so I just tell people to tell my mom that I'm a convicted bank robber, just don't tell her I'm school bus driver!!! I'm used to having 30+ ft of metal dragging behind me, but when I got the airstream, I had to learn to back up something that bent in the middle!!! sit down and be quiet !!

I (Kevin) work as an electronics technician for a Dutch company that specializes in wide format printing equipment/high speed color and network printers. This involves a lot of state owned equipment, it keeps me local, and allows us to live in a very rural area...In our previous life, I was a recording engineer in the film industry, and my wife Erin was the Librarian/Archivist for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles....She's now happier as the librarian for two small rural elementry schools in our county.. Our kids' job (ages 8 and 9) is to stay out of trouble...We have yet to regret our move 12 years ago towards "voluntary simplicity".

Hi Ho, Hi Ho.. It's back to work we go...

After enjoying 18 months of retirement from high tech electronics contracts, I've agreed to accept position as Risk Mgr for our Credit Union, on "full-time" basis for at least 3 or 4 years... Good salary, really interesting work environment (from legal to regulatory compliance to internal/external audit to protecting 125K members from scams and frauds...). Giving up part-time development of negotiating training program content, but negotiated enough time off to continue making good use of the rolling condo... I hear these are now called "Encore Careers" and working for non-profit feels good, especially in the Valley of Outsourcing and Offshoring and Backdating of Options...


In Theory, there's no difference between Theory and Practice, but in Practice, there is usually a difference...

My career has changed (again), after a brief stint as a scooter test pilot, and forced temporary retirement, I am again out working, as a tech repairing almost everything, keeping an eye on the "kids" (one is 42, another 40) in the shop, and thinking about returning to a teaching career.
