Stainless steel welder/fabricator making stainless steel drainage systems, grease traps, gulleys, channells etc and of course the occasional 'nixer' that means a little jobbie for myself when the boss is not about. What is that called where you are?

Exciting stuff.

Tom.

I'd know private jobs on the boss' time as a "foreigner". Dunno why it's called that but it is.

What a lot of exciting things you all do.

I'm a translator with the European Court of Auditors in Luxembourg. French, Danish and German and I'm learning Lithuanian (well, trying to).

Yet another English teacher, although now happily retired after 33 years in the trenches. I also did 32 years with the Canadian army reserves (artillery) until booted out over the hill in 2003. Involved with the cadets so I have closet full of uniforms :D

Adrian Roberts

Got a degree (just) in Mechanical Engineering when I first left school, but failed to find a job in that line, due to graduating in the 80's recessions.

After a few shelf-stacking and van-driving jobs, trained as a Psychiatric Nurse, eighteen years ago. Now a Community Psychiatric Nurse, until my Trust runs out of money.

Hence, I have an interest both in the technology of war and also in the human experience.

Would like to have been a pilot, but my eyesight and being crap at sports meant neither the RAF nor the airlines would have me. Also when I was eighteen I was going through an idealistic pacifist phase, and the RAF don't take pacifists (at least they didn't then; its probably a requirement these days). I've managed to have a few flying adventures when I've had any spare money (i.e. pre-children), but I am thankful to have a worthwhile job working with people.
