    I'm a Program Administrator at the local VA Medical Center going on 12 years now. Spent 7 years in the Army back in the day, then used my GI Bill and such to go to school. Spent some years in the private sector, and missed the daily flogging too much. Back in the public sector I went.

    I own a small roofing company here in the middle of CA. Fishing is my hobby when I can find time. Trying to learn a little more about BBQ so I can purchase what I need before I retire. (If I can)

          Know what you mean. My aerospace engineering BS is dated 1986. VERY few of my classmates still in engineering. Building a house in central VA and planning to retire next year. Retire, in my case, means quit the corporate life and go back to self-employment, which is what I did prior to my current 7 year stint in a mega-corporation.

        I am a Licensed Land Surveyor. June 17, 2019 makes 50 years in the profession. Licensed for 43 years. I practice in the western end of the "Hamptons" on Eastern Long, NY. We have done the surveying for about 90% of the 8,000-12,000 square foot "Summer Cottages" in the western end of the "Hamptons". Currently we are working on a 27,000 square foot 254 foot long "Summer Cottage" in the middle of the "Hamptons". The surveyor who started the job did not have a lot of experience with structural steel. We were called to over the job. At a job meeting with the architects and owners reps the job super pointed at me and said, "If it wasn't for him the 2.8 million pounds of structural steel would not fit and we would not be anywhere near along as we are now." That made my career. The end of next year I am looking to retire or as I call it, "Going to the land of six Saturdays and then there is Saturday."

        Hobbies: I have fished all my life. I have a picture of me at 4 years old holding up a small bluefish. We are a two boat family a 38 foot Duffy finished by Flower's Boat Works and a 21 foot Parker. The Admiral and I fish inshore and offshore. We both have charter boat licenses and I have kept my commercial fishing permits from my younger days. Five years ago to keep the Admiral happy because she said, " You need a winter hobby." I took up studying Kendo. Currently I have the rank of Ni Dan. If I didn't have health problem in 2018 and again in 2019 (see my introduction thread) I would be testing for San Dan in October. Then there is BBQ that I explain in my introduction thread.

        I'm a software engineer, I write apps for iOS mostly and my hobbies are teaching software development and developing software for fun.

        I'm unhappy with my Daniel Boone app, so I've begun a process of intercepting all the calls it makes to/from the smoker so that I can write my own custom app which will do things better. Holler if you work at Green Mountain Grills lol, I have some ideas!

        I basically try to solve every problem with some kind of codified, technical solution.

          I'm a civil trial attorney practicing mostly in the 5 boroughs of NYC. I exclusively represent injured people, which I have been doing for 38 years. Currently my practice is 95+% trial counsel practice, which means I get cases from other lawyers to take to trial on their behalf. It's rewarding work and I love it. Since I work entirely by myself and live 80 miles from NYC, I work mostly from home, but do have an office in Manhattan, which is a legal requirement in NY State.

          Other than cooking (all kinds, especially ethnic and international and Q) my main hobby is building solid body electric guitars. I used to play a fair amount, but I have painful arthritis in the ring finger of my fretting hand, which causes me to self-limit my playing more than I'd like.
