The next time you get caught in an automated attendant loop, just keep old AT&T and AUDIX in mind. After all, they invented that loop.

Now-a-days I run a (surprise!) RV camping web site.
What's your camping website, I'll have to visit it.

I guess I should start.......I work for our county 911 center as a dispatcher for fire and EMS as well as taking 911 calls. I also own a small lawn care company.
I'm happily Retired. I worked for the Big Yellow Box company "Kodak" for almost 25 years. Enjoying camping with my bestfriend the DH now and our 2 furry friends, our pugs! I've enjoyed seeing what jobs everyone has or have done. God bless, everyone! Enjoy camping this summer!

Thank you for your service! I have a nephew who is a Marine and he's floating around someone "over there" in a ship right now....

Thank YOU for your service! As I stated earlier, my nephew is a Marine and is on the amphibious assault ship, USS Makin Island (LHD 8) somewhere "over there." He hopes to be out and by July and attending college by September.

So...what do think of the middle? I have seen the commercials on TV and have wondered what the middle is like. Never been, only flown over. I have a friend from Winnipeg who now lives in Ontario. I don't think he has had urge to return. Something about the -40 temps!!

I should just have waited until I read all of these posts to thank all active/retired servicemen (women) for their service. Thank you for keeping us safe and assuring us of the freedom we've grown accustomed to.

As for our occupations - I'm a senior sales coordinator for cable television advertising. My DH runs a packaging machine at Sartori Foods in Plymouth, WI. (No, not the persnickety cheese people!) We also just recently started a home based business called "Round Barn Woodcrafts" making small, functional wood items. We do the craft show circuit. Eventually we'll have a website.

It's quite nice out here. As you said, the -40 sucks but, I take that over the southern Ontario traffic.
