Built buildings, mostly houses, most of my working life. Then owned a fish and chip shop, now retired as a volunteer adult literacy-numeracy tutor for those who struggle.

Operations Support Analyst here, but in the process of starting my own business with DH doing some catering and baking, party planning, murder mystery parties, etc. ... it is so hard to find a good bake/pastry shop here where I live and it's outrageous what the cake shops charge for wedding cakes, etc. so I'm hoping to be able to do them for a much lower price to get the business going. We have our first clients that we cater lunch for some of the medical staff at a local optometrist's office on a bi-weekly basis.

You see now that's what I dream of doing. Working side by side with my DH, except doing photography (weddings, etc...) and moving and settling in SC.

I recently retired (again) from a position as Training Director for a restaurant group. I have 25 years experience in food and beverage. I take care of two parents with Alzheimers who live with me. (I do have some nursing help!) I work on my website when time permits.

To put it another way, I care for my grandson during the week while his parents work. Otherwise, I'm a retired finance and accounting manager.
