Real Estate Developer/Broker. Here is my latest project although the Google Maps satelite image is about 2 years old, they do have the streets on the map overlay. All of those trees are houses and townhouses now.

Funny for about a year after Katrina Google had updated satelite images to show the New Orleans area after the storm. About three months ago they reverted back to images that are all pre-storm. Odd!

What do you do? :D
I was a photographer, worked in a studio after I got out of school. I photographed a lot of things. Weddings, enviromentals and my favorite was studio photos.

I expressed, excessed, emusified and eggressed from law enforement to electrionic security and everything in between in the process during the long forgotten times between 1979 and now. Forgotten times for some, begotten for others, hard times for the rest who may still worry.

Getting on in life and carring for those left behind I find living is worth while and wondering about it not so sure. I see myself fishing for something not worth while, yet I'm not so sure. Could it be 'selfish'? or some other kind of fish that plages my sence with reminders of gould and grime?

May Maryjean and her sisters all gleam at the site, where we saw her brother all fallen that night.

Yeah, we can work something out! The male brothel has been experiencing a high turnover rate, so I should be able to fit you in with relative ease. Prior to employment though, I do require a full physical and STD check, so if you ain't clean, you need not apply! If all the tests check out, we will hook you up with our online account at Pimps'R'Us.com and get you all fitted up in the female attraction clothing of your choice. Once this is complete, we will head on over to Cadi-ladies Dealership and find you a doped out ride on some 100-spoke gold wheels on air ride suspension. Oh, and as a fringe benefit, we pay for all your lady pleasing "equipment" and your travel expenses with a monthly bonus for pleasing more than 30 ladies per month! :D 8p :D

36 years of practice and no brains. I started out my working career as a draftsman on vellum and using drafting pencils, ink, drafting machines, triangles and not computers. I saw 2 different stripers (John McNalley, Tampa and Striper George, Boston) working @ car shows, street rod runs and thought I would like to try it. Took me 7 years working as a draftsman, 10 hr days, 6 days a week and doing it on the side before I went into business for myself 29 years ago.

Hey, lay off my brutha Harold!:mad: EVERYONE should learn to draw on a drafting board BEFORE they are CAD operators. I learned to draw the old pencil, paper, table, machine way for 1 year, then learned AutoCAD in 1988. I became very proficient with AutoCAD through HIgh School and then in college. But I think its very important to establish basics. I saw guys that couldnt draw simple schematics or diagrams just to convey ideas only because they had NO idea how to draw by hand. :rolleyes: Basic people! you need to build the foundation of a house before you can put the roof on it!:) ANyone in the technical field should be able to draw by hand resonably well to convey ideas to other people. a picture is worth a thousand words. a computer is not always available in the real world.

Office Space, where would we be without it...

Daily is project management. Anybody heard of six sigma? Thats what I do. I was in sales prior to this assignment, liked that much more. This is a temporary assignment, 2-3 years, then I get released back to sales with some sort of promotion. I wasn't all that big on this job when I took it, I knew that my new boss would be someone I would have problems with. I also knew if I didn't accept the position, I would be passed for future promotions. All in all, I think I win, if I truely am unhappy, the training, at least, makes me much more employable so I can easily go else where. I am very loyal to the company that I work for and would like to see this stage of my career through, but some days...

...job cuts are coming your way once the "Champion" finishes his ANALyse.

Common misconception. While we have been able to streamline processes, we do not eliminate people. People are re-deployed to other areas that have openings. I was just going through a 6-month update this morning, we were able to re-deploy 6 people from a department of 18. Big time savings in the department, and helps out other areas that have a deficit. We currently have about 40 openings at our facility so there are certainly no job cuts related to projects.

It really depends on the company, once streamlining suggestions are "Value-Added" and "Non Value Added" is cut. With out a company that can bring in new business, there is no "Value Added" for that employee to sit around. Hence Job Cuts.

DMAIC is a very good thing for a large company, once in the Control phase it is a constant battle for employment.

I counter back though cuz I am a nice guy. 585k with 6k back and you can go %^$@ yourself if you think you are getting any of my entertainment center! my realtor couldn't believe that, I told her she better submit it. She said, "You know we could always just reject the offer." I thought to myself, what fun is that!

I work for a nonprofit conservation organization doing various land transactions (conservation easements, buying land, transferring land, processing land donations), I write government grants, and I work with various governmental units on land use planning related to environmental issues. I work with the DNR, DEQ, M-DOT, US Forest Service, counties, townships, private landowners and various other government and non-government agencies.

I have a lot of interesting projects. For example, I'm transferring land to the US Forest to increase the size of one of the National Forests here in Michigan. The federal government wanted the land but they can't get land deals done quickly. It would be developed before they could get it done... so it became my project.

In a related project, I wrote a successful grant for a county in Michigan so they could buy a campground with a large tract of land that is adjoining to the land I'm transferring to the US Forest Service. It's a neat project because it provides jobs and economic benefits for that county, expands recreation opportunities (hunting, fishing, boating, etc.), and it protects habitat on land that has threatened and endangered species on it.

Added bonus... I’m doing something that feels meaningful and I get on some of the most beautiful land in Michigan and get to take pictures. :)

Took me two weeks to recover and another two years to get over the panic whenever I hear the screeching of brakes!

I'm in the Southern California area...Loma Linda actually.

Speaking as a nurse, a night of partying it up dehydrates you and messes with the electrolytes in your system. Pedialyte actually contains a good balance of what you need without too much glucose. Stay away from Gatorade...although it contains some electrolytes, it has way too much glucose...hard on an already upset stomach.

Do I sound like a spokesperson?? :D Pedialyte is highly recommended for kids who are dehydrated from vomiting/diarrhea (for all you parents out there...). And, of course, for Hoosier Bob after a night of hard partying! :rolleyes:

Hey, lay off my brutha Harold!:mad: EVERYONE should learn to draw on a drafting board BEFORE they are CAD operators. I learned to draw the old pencil, paper, table, machine way for 1 year, then learned AutoCAD in 1988. I became very proficient with AutoCAD through HIgh School and then in college. But I think its very important to establish basics. I saw guys that couldnt draw simple schematics or diagrams just to convey ideas only because they had NO idea how to draw by hand. :rolleyes: Basic people! you need to build the foundation of a house before you can put the roof on it!:) ANyone in the technical field should be able to draw by hand resonably well to convey ideas to other people. a picture is worth a thousand words. a computer is not always available in the real world.

HERE, HERE! You said it! Nobody knows how to draw anymore. It's pathetic. That being said, even though my title is designer, I don't do much drawing work anymore (been a drafter/designer for ~16 yrs). Mostly do MCAD administration for my company.
