    Have you ever attended the LLWS. I was born and raised in Williamsport PA. Have only missed 3 LLWS in my 32 yrs of life. Now travel back to the area for a day trip to attend with my family. Its an amazing atmosphere there.

    Born in Pottstown, Pa and camped in Williamsport area a lot but never made it. I watch every game every year on TV and wish I were there. You're lucky. Do you try to get in the lottery to ref a game? That would REALLY be special.

    Now, support technician in the operating room at a local hospital.

    Loved all of those jobs, but probably the animal hospital one the most :)

    Presently, I am a stationary engineer at a manufacturing company. I run a 5 Megawatt gas turbine cogeneration system, plus I have six 750KW Cat diesel cogen generators as backup. I maintain all support systems (Steam boilers, hot oil, hydraulic and pneumatic). Before that, I ran the vehicle maintenance shop with over 100 cars, trucks and forklifts.(They subbed out the vehicle repairs when the company got bought out) Before that I was a ASE certified master mechanic (When we were called mechanics) at an Oldsmobile dealership.

    All that aside, I hate my present job and am always looking for my dream job, whatever that is!

    Lots of diversity here. As for me I spent 25 years in the US Marines. Now I own a horse farm where we train off the track Thoroughbreds as show horses primarily in the hunter/jumper disciplines.
