    3 days a week I'm a chemist
    3 long (12+ hour) days a week I'm a potter (plus a couple hours here and there)
    1 day I'm a honey-do dude.

    Yes, I'm a Bruins fan. Terry O'Reilly is still worshiped here, as he should be.

    Mishmouse: so you're a techie???

    Brian: move to Canada. We don't tend to throw lawsuits around like we're slinging mud. I do laugh every time I saw an advertisement on TV for some sort of a class action lawsuit in the US. By socialized medicine you mean medicare?

    Jags: your ninja skills don't intimidate me. I believe your ninja skills suffer from bad case of general weakness.....

    Danno: You're right, it's not even close. Physchologists have their hands full, especially in a school environment. Didn't enjoy programming? I too did some CS but ended up sticking with my chemistry instead and was also a technician at my university during my time there. Working in the labs, etc. Man oh man that was a while back!

    Gotcha. In Canada we have Medicare and everyone seems to accept it. It's just the way it has been for years. However private clinics have begun to open for those who have private health insurance. two tiered healthcare society has begun. It helps clear the backlogs in the public plan that's for sure.

    I expect that to happen here when the transition to government health care is complete. Currently, a number of Medicare clients are signing up with concierge medical practices the provide same or next day primary care.

    Primarily Monkfish and Skate. We also target Striped Bass for a short time in the fall and trawl for Fluke and Squid in the summer. I have also been a lobstermen here on Long Island and a Spiny Lobster and Stone Crab fishermen in Key West for 7 years. Have been a clammer, bay scalloper, and deckhand on offshore trawlers and longliner as well over the past 25 years.
