    Just curious really. Doesn't matter in the least bit, but I've been here for over a year and seen countless personalities thrown out on line here. Knowing what's seen on the net isn't always true to life. What do/did-you-do for a living?????


    I'm a manufacturing engineer for a truck and crane company handling cost savings and new product development.

    What about y'all?

    President of eduLaunchpad.com. If you have or are a college-bound student, check it out. I also invest in real estate.

    That goes to pay for my habits. :)

    Did thirteen in the USN after I graduated from High School, then went into construction/millwright work.
    Ten years ago I got into real estate appraisal by a fluke, and, less than a year ago, I went into it on my own as a self employed person.
    Leave it to me to start a business in a bombing economy!! Fortunately, this line of work I get work whether they are buying or being foreclosed on.
