Is there a doctor on board please? How often have I heard this on a flights! Perhaps there is a full time occupation for a GP ... you get to tour the world for free by being the "yebo, yes! I am in the mining industry, specifically uranium - which is a by-product of gold! Yup, people its good clean burning fuel .... as opposed to fossil fuel! Google "nuclear" and get educated or with it! We are NOT the bad guys! BTW my SO is a Beancounter and I love him to bits! OK, I'll get off my hot boxnow!

i´m working as a urban civil servant planning the development of the town. In former times i did my job in the public relief office and more time ago in the office for order.
I'm working now since 28 years and sharpened lots of pencils. So when i come back home in the evening, my girl-friend asks me if i´m tired or if i slept well in my office. She works as a nurse for old people and i offer her to be her client.
I am an electrical engineer, working for a company developing a commercial model of a new type of nuclear reactor. But I work with a whole bunch of mech-engs, so I have learnt a heckovalot of their stuff too.
Previously 11 years with Eskom. Left before the **** started, maybe there's a link?

I studied agriculture at college and worked for DEFRA (department for the envoroment, food and rural affairs) paying farmers subsidies before having my son. At the minute I'm a full time mom and studying a degree in canine behaviour and training part time. I'm particually interested in scent work, tracking ect.
In the next year or so I plan to start training labs for gundog work and selling them on at a year or 18 months...... but who knows what'll happen?

Retired - or should that be re-treaded? - now..... Bliss!!!!
Actually took early retirement and bailed out of the mad bullying rat-race of the NHS in UK. I was working as a Neonatal Lecturer Practitioner at the time (ie half time hospital, half time Uni). Previously worked 9 years in Mission stations in Zambia and N KwaZulu/Natal.
Now qualified as a tour guide for Kruger and surrounding reserves - but not working as such - just available and enjoying visits as often as possible....

I'm a PRO doing social responsibility for a large retail company in SA. For the most part of it I sit behind a desk. My best is working on some of our large events and doing the photography for the department.

Im a PA for an Architect Firm and well any PA will agree with me that there is never a dull moment in our job titles, especially when things go wrong and you had nothing to do with it, and somehow its your fault! I organise, organise and organise! If i have to give you all my duties it will take forever so i will keep it at that!
