Physical education and drama were my two majors in collage.
Wish I'd have pursued either of them with a stronger [then too young] passion.

I was in the IT industry(in sales) for 13 years and I'm SO glad I'm out of it Quite a few of my friends and DH is still in the industry and whenever they start talking shop I'm even more glad - even though I'm MUCH poorer now

It is not so bad as it use to be. I work from home 4 out of 5 days a week, so I can tolerate it much better! But yea, I know what you mean about IT. (I can see you covering up your ears and going "LA LA LA LA LA LA" when DH starts to talk shop!!!)

You know, Bucky T, that fits you! Besides, isn't that what you do all day here?

A plumber or an electrician or both if that would be possible.

I have 45 years in what is now called IT. It is my living and hobby. I don't mind talking shop with people, I just have a problem with all the people that want me to "just take a look at my computer" while everyone else is partying, or call on a Saturday, Sunday or late at night.

Anyway, Plumbers and Electricains are people who cannot be outsourced and the work will never go away. Those that have been doing it for several years are secure. In today's worls, there is a lot to be said for that.
