Pytn, you can have my job on the days when I suffer from "writer's block." On those days, I'd gladly trade places with you.

Is represented as:



1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.



If:

H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K



8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%



And:



K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E



11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+5 = 96%





But:



A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E



1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%





THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:



L-O-V-E-O-F-G-O-D



12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%





Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:



While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, It's the Love of God that will put you over the top!

LT7, I lived in Utah for a few years and agree that it is beautiful in places. I think the most wonderful produce I've ever tasted was there. We had a friend who had an acre of land and grew the best. He'd call my parents and (I have 3 sisters) we'd come out and strip the fields after he'd sold what he could. Then we'd sit on his swing and eat plums from his tree.

I didn't mention it in my blurb, but I also write a column for our local weekly newspaper.

For work, I am a Chef.

For fun, I surf, ride motorcycles, and indulge in a "special beverage" every now and again. I also am into collecting old cars, but that can be both work and fun.

And obviously, spend time on the web:D

Monday to Friday I'm one of three executive chefs at one of NYC's biggest university campuses.

When I'm not doing that I'm with Lou going down the shore (in summer), bike riding, gardening, finding great jazz locally, drinking to excess, relaxing in the outdoor hot tub, and at often as possible wandering around the French Quarter.

This is an interesting thread. I read so many of your posts but had no idea what you do for fun and work. I am an accountant, but for fun I love to garden, hike, cook and take care of my animals.
