Virtual Town Community

Lets build a virtual town called DC. Now, what can you do to get the town started?. We will need cooks, carpenters, electricians, farmers , builders, grocer, health care,teachers, plumbers, security, merchants, mechanics etc, etc. I propose we first make Uncle Bob Mayer who will call all the shots. Now what would your contribution be from your professional life and skills you have learned along the the way to make this town thrive. Supplies for our jobs will be no problem to get from other places.

With my years in the newspaper business and as a writer, I could take care of producing the community newspaper.

After 30 plus years as a City Councilman, and declining the job of Mayor on several occassions...I will accept your nomination as Mayor of the Virtual Community!!

Great we need a good Mayer and of course you will need to be in charge of the towns annual BBQ fundraiser. I think Dove and the shed would be good for law breakers.

Let's see if Marge would accept the position of police chief/sheriff. Her woodshed would be perfect for criminals.

Excellent choice!!! I wonder if GB and Kitchenelf would serve as Chief Criminal Investigators. I know Kitchenelf would love to send people to Marge's "Court"

We will need a good bakery are you in? You will need help so who else is able to work in bakery? Plus don't forget everyone you have other skills besides your main occupation to keep this town running smoothly.
