Chall03; As a TV Director, I'm sure that you are managing a bunch of crazy actors/actresses and being highly distressed while doing so.

Technology was the closest for my career. I operate two commercial office towers. ensure the boilers and chillers are functioning as planned. complete preventative maintenance on a multitude of HVAC, circ pumps, fire alarm systems. Although my title is Building Operator, I am more of a Jack of all Trades - master of NONE!

I am an unemployed electronics technician with 35 years of experience but, given the current job market, I think I need to change careers. I have a couple of job interviews lined up in Somalia next week for a position as a Pirate. I may have to start out as an intern.

Your typical ol' R&D guy at a vibrator manufacturing plant located on the French Riviera. I'm in charge of testing for quality, which is done "in the field," as it were. The field is waterbed in a bungalo with a spectacular view of the sea.

I checked Technical

But that was a bit of a stretch... I work as a self-employeed commercial photographer. I use Digital cameras exclusively and work mostly with computers. The sailboat keeps me grounded in reality.

Joe McCary,
Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.
