    What is this "day" thing you guys are talking about?.... Never heard of it, never seen it... "Job" is also confusing to me... and a little disturbing...

    Isn't having a smoking section in a restaurant like having a peeing section in a swimming pool?

    Currently disabled/retired...
    My last two careers outside of music were...
    1- Chef / Restaurant Manager / Hotel Food and Beverage Director
    2- Commercial Kitchen Designer and Outfitter (designing and installing kitchens in restaurants, schools, hospitals, etc...)

    The only thing I can still do well enough to make money at is computer graphics (specialize in photo restoration)...but with diabetes steadily eating away at my vision, even that is coming to an end.

    I do things for people that they don't want to do themselves; I also dispense ignored advice to other people. Hopefully, I will get into grad school and this all will change into me paying (instead of receiving) money to do said things as well as finding less time to be ignored.

    I am a Hackney cab driver on the wirral merseyside. I work evenings picking up drunks and other types of dark characters. I listen to jazz cd's while I work as this helps me to chill and stay calm. During the day I have my TJ horn revolution II to practice on which takes my mind off work.

    No, you cannot lease a $60,000 Sequoia for $300/month with no money down.
    Just two questions: Where's the Bar located relative to the stage, and does the band get a discount?

    This is a really interesting read, especially for the nosy (like me)

    My day job is an artist. I paint watercolors and oils for galleries and commissions. I also work on illustrations for a children's books. I started out as a teacher, specializing in the arts and music. Then, when I married and moved to Switzerland I began concentrating on my art (hence the avatar) It took me about 6 years to reach a standard I am really happy with now, with a lot of harsh self-criticism.

    My ambition is also to start up my blues/jazz band again (but not in Switzerland, where they smoke like chimneys, especially in ALL pubs and clubs, with NO choice) About 35% smoke here, which is awfully high. We didn't know that when we moved here. It makes eating at restaurants unpleasant too, and even the shopping centers are smoking (well, not literally!) But if you buy clothes they stink of smoke. I mean, I don't hate smokers or anything (I used to be one) I just hate that there's no choice. And I'd hate to sing in a bar, and fill with smoke. I envy you Americans for your smoke-free areas now. It is quite backward here, in that respect.

    Anyway, I've always loved music and played piano, piano accordion, then later sax in my early years. My accordion teacher wanted to take me on as a professional at 11 years. So, I guess I must've been quite good then. But it was SO heavy to manage.
    Now, I'm back to basics as a beginner sax player (in my opinion) And it still surprises me that my love of the sax never left me. Even in my 20 year gap years!!

    Anyway, wake up!! Sorry for the life-story

    Patient Service Technician delivering, installing, servicing, and inspecting medical equipment in patients homes. Primarily it's oxygen, but a lot of other stuff too. Sad to say this, but smokers keep me in business.
