What do you do?

Hey guys I just saw this Arkansas Chapter on here. I realized I was closer to you guys than anyone in the Mizzou Chapter. I work in Ark most of the time and live in Mo. I have been working in Michigan for 5 months and cant wait to get back. Back to my question originally where do you live and what do you do for work. Just to get things rolling, I live 15 min. outside of Pea Ridge AR and I am a Sign maker for Dynamic Signs and Calypso Signs as a sign fabricater and instalation specialist.

I don't do anything and just fall *** backwards in money all the time.

Just kidding. I'm the President & General Manager of J & M Steel Technology Inc. Which means I work longer hours than alot, harder than many, for less than most.

I don't work....not at a real job anyway.

I have a lot of serious health problems, so I can only work part time. I teach various AutoDesk software classes at two local colleges. Right now its just AutoCAD 2006 (2D and 3D), Architectural Desktop 2006 , and Inventor 10, but we are adding classes as time goes on.

Oh...Jim. I grew up in a steel fabrication shop. My dad still works on one (has for as long as I have been around). I worked in one until my health problems started getting bad.

later all,
Brian

I just looked on a map to see where that was. Your over toward the North West corner of the state normally.

I work in Harrison, AR a few days a week during the school year. That is about as close to where you will be as I get. Thats around 75 miles maybe?

My brother lives in Springfield, Mo and I end up in that area sometimes.

BTW: Good morning everyone. I guess I should get some sleep now.

I'm 18 and a student and I work full-time as a front desk clerk at a Super 8. I'll be a junior in college after this semester where I plan to continue my education at Brigham Young University in Utah for landscape management. That is far away from Blytheville, haha.

Poor guy....on a fixed income. Fixed for life!

I sometimes wish I'd stayed in 11 more years.......Actually I don't, but I do miss that 30 days a year.
