Thank you Mailagnas maqqas dunaidonas. Those words are beautiful indeed. And what you said has comforted me. Thought I'm perfectly conscious that my little existential problems have nothing in common with the things you had to deal with as a veteran from Vietnam. Let's say I was in a bad mood this morning, thanks for the help ! wink.gif

I'm currently "in process". My family and I are opening a coffeehouse in October. As long as contractors and vendors stay on task wink.gif

I've been a stay-at-home mom for the last 11 years. With many side businesses, i.e. babysitting, CATW demonstrator, etc., to bring in extra money.
Before this gig, I worked for Xerox for four years.

Opening the coffeehouse is my dream job. My sister and I have wanted to do this for close to a decade. It's exciting and overwhelming. I'm truly enjoying this rollercoaster ride biggrin.gif

Single speed,

You know I'm tired, tired to defend my job in France, having to prove all the time that because I'm a military I'm not necessarily stupid an violent. Tired to defend my country here, trying to explain that because we are against the war in Irak we are not necessarily cowards or traitors or I don't know what else. It's not the right place to do that and I'm not fluent enough to explain properly, so there can be misunderstandings.
You know I'm not representing the French government here...

My apologies. I was a bit cranky when I wrote the reply. I am an Air Foorce veteran. I met with alot of the same attitude that you have experienced bothe overseas and in the states.

My response was not necessarily an attack on the Frnce, but an affirmation of how both the Military and Americans are observed both at home and abroad.

I was a bit cranky myself, and certainly too sensitive in the morning, sorry about that. Communication is the best way to improve human relations, isn't it ? I'll do it better the next time... smile.gif .

Real soldiers sailor, marines and airmen are neither stupid nor violent, To be either one is to be a bullies with a uniform and weapons. The true test of soldiery is to be able to apply the minimum and precice violence when needed inorder to exact the results needed. War is not honorable and heroic but being the best warrior you can be is. We are also not politicians and do not get to choose and pick our war but we all can choose to fight with honor and integrity and to the letter of the law. I thank God that I did not have to kill for my country while I served but I prepared every day inorder to do so.

Now I am just a parttime realestate appraiser and a full time student studying Horticulture technology and have much time to go before I graduate.

I work for a Conservation District in Pennsylvania. We deal with the local farmers, put on demos for students and work with the local watersheds.

My job is Executive Secretary/Treasurer. I get to keep track of everyone, pay everyone and take in the money.

It's not very exciting but I do keep busy, mostly. I'm hoping when I move overseas I can find a job in the same field I'm in.

I have had numerous part-time jobs while I was in highschool. I went to a community college for a few years. Now I am a MA and still going to school. I work in a doctor's office working with patients and doing what I can to help them with their problems. I don't know if I am going to further my medical degree or go in a different direction. I love history and art and am planning to take some more classes. We'll see. It's just so expensive.

Many know this by now but if you don't, I'm a metalsmith. I work in gold and silver. This is a change from my previous career of computer programming for the Canadian Parliament from 1989 to 2001. Which was a change from my previous career of sailing on the Mar II in Halifax, N.S.

Phone tech support for any number of clients, to include folks in Gettin-away's line of work. Thinking about moving to another position in the building in a couple of months though.

Thank you freekenny,

I've changed careers many times in the past and I think that I might stick with this one unless I can get back to sailing. Nothing better than being completely out of sight of land for days and hearing the water against the hull and the wind in the sails. Even the sound of crewmates throwing up over the side was fine by me!! If I ever did return to sailing, my carving tools would come with me.
