I'm a cartoonist. Been doing it for almost 20 years.I've had over 6000 cartoons published.(it's the same drawing of a stick-man that I keep selling to different media outlets, so far nobody has caught on) I'll never retire...they'll have to pull my pen from my cold dead hand.I also do voice work...I do a mean imitation of "dead-air"....sorry, that's an industry joke.

LTD, who do you work for. I am a Customer Demand Manager for a large Aluminum sheet and plate producer in Davenport Iowa.


I work for a company called Dukes, Inc. No one's ever heard of it, but it's been in business for 50 years.
Here's our web page, if you're interested...

I've heard of Nichols (I assume that's your company), but we don't buy directly from them. But you may supply material to the people we buy from here in SoCal.

Career Army. Just went over 19 years a few weeks ago and trying to decide whether to drop retirement paperwork or hang around a few more years.

I'm an old fashioned family doctor: deliver babies, house calls, the whole nine yards. I don't pull teeth though, I happily pass that along to the dentists!

Im just an old tired Truck Driver, Used to own my own Rig and found out early that when you drive for a company , your a truck driver and when you own your own, your now a bussiness man and have to pay yourself,
No more long haul these days just local , maybe overnight , but usally home each night .

Handle every situation like a dog,
If you can't eat it or hump it,
Piss on it and walk away!

I am the evening team leader (supervisor) of the Childwatch Department at our local YMCA (the largest YMCA in the country). I am directly responsible for about 200 children who come and go in a 6 hour stretch, with as many as 97 at a time, who range in age from 6 weeks to 9 years old. To get a grasp of how chaotic it has the potential to be, we have 8 teachers, including myself. We watch the kids for a couple hours while mom and dad get their workout in or take a class or while they put other children in classes. It is the funnest job I've ever had, hey, I sit and color and blow bubbles all night while watching cartoons, but it is also the most stressful at times. 30 minutes of holding a screaming toddler who does NOT want to be there can sure seem like an eternity!
