The quick & the dirty of what occupies my days.

Mentally – Photography and planning trips back to Africa

Generally – most days — I work for the state environmental agency cleaning up abandoned hazardous waste sites. I also do most of the photography for publication for our agency. A geographer by schooling

Occasionally – as much as I can — Professional photographer, mostly landscape stories for regional tourism magazines but also some advertising and travel work and the occasional show. And now and then teach photography

Spare time and for the future – my wife and I opened a retail boutique almost a year ago.

Hello,
I'm a nurse. Work on a crisis unit in a psychiatric hospital.
Once a month I work during the night, mostly it is very quiet, so I have a lot of time for reading on the forum
I have a lot of colleagues. During the day and evening shift we work with the 4 of us.
On the night shift we work with 3 nurses, that is because we always have to be prepared for a crisis and it can happen that patients arrive during the night, mostly brought in by the police.
During day time it is rather busy, so no forum for me then. :
can't help it, the monkeys always make me smile.....

I am a vet that works for the government developing new vaccines. After qualifying I spent time in private practise and specialising in pathology, all leading up to my current job. I did my matric in SA then completed my varsity years at two universities in the States.

Yes, Bert and I want to know how you can find a job like this...
I would spend the money from my SO with flying to South-Africa and visiting the parks, sounds better than golf in the Netherlands to me.
Ore Golf in the Kruger park...

I'm also looking for a place needed for a bush shrink.
