    I work 8 months a year serving and bar tending at a hotel in st Augustine, fl , I think for the summer months for the past 12 years, manage/run a small sailboat shop in Southampton NY , I actually will be leaving in 5 days to go do this so I guess that's why this thread took my eye. I don't sell big sailboats mostly sunfish, lasers, small cats, stuff of that nature.

    I work for Bud Mudd's pool and patio here in Orlando, Fl! My duties are to brush, vac, skim and stabilize chems for rich people who don't even look at their pools cuz their off somewhere else all year. My hours start at 8a.m andend when I'm through with my route. The amount of hours fluctuate during the year between 38hrs-72hrs. Pay isn't enough for a Porsche but its more thqn enough to live comfortably. My employer pays for my full benefits and it's a great company to work for. However, I'm in school part time for fire science to become a fire fighter sometime in the near future.

    I own a real estate brokerage and am a saltwater fish and coral dealer. Both companies are new, growing, and equally exciting. My background is in real estate and securities more recently but after the market took a turn for the worst last year I quit the investments and came back to real estate.

    I'm a Chemistry graduate teaching fellow at a middle-sized university. That means I work about 60-80 hours a week either teaching undergrads, doing research, or taking grad classes (all at once). Pay's not that exciting, but at least it's what I love doing. My research varies, but my most recent project involves removing sulfur contaminants from Army jet fuel, so they can use them in hydrogen fuel cells. Interesting work, but not exciting on a daily basis.... that's what my tank is for :D
