I am a middle school science and social studies teacher. Been at it for 18 years now , so I guess I will stick with it. Oh yeah, I will be using my Spyderco Toad to dissect the toads this spring!!!!

BTW, I also work part time at the local Wal-Mart Supercenter in the sporting goods dept. Have to make some extra money to support the knife habit you know!

I'm an environmental engineer and constructor running my own business (which means chasing people to pay their bills). My favorite hobbies are hiking, backpacking, reading, and home improvement. I use my knives in business and hobbies for my pleasure.

I've been a Land Surveyor for all 16 years of my working carreer. In recient years though management have been pushing me towards design and project management of construction contracts.

No matter what the weather I relish the days I'm out on site. I think they're trying to drown me in paperwork in the office.

Mr. Kesting,

I am studying Political science, so I don't think I have met him, although, back home I had a Math Prof from Aussie land, sorry, but I don't remember exactly where though. Also met a girl from Melbourne here too. Interesting history your country has. I read in some book that some people detonated a nuke somewhere in the outback. The books said that no one really noticed it either. Amazing, lol, you guys also had a PM that drowned and was never found. Tis a shame that the world does not pay much attention to ya'll, you guys have an interesting country. Oh well, the Canadians feel the same way about the U.S.

Andrew,

That's OK it was a long shot that you'd be studying design. You're right about the nukes though. Back in the 50's the Brits were testing nuclear bombs at a place called Woomera. It was noticed though, they lined these poor Aussie soldiers up and exposed them to the blast from a distance to see what effects radiation had on humans. Poor blighters are still trying to get adequate compensation from the British government. There's recently been millions of dollars spent "cleaning" the land so that the local indiginous tribes can move back into the area.

As for poor old Harold Holt, went for a swim after Xmas dinner and was never seen again. However, since he was the one who coined the phrase "all the way with LBJ" during the Vietnam war, the were many who did not grieve for him unduly.

BTW everyone here calls me Clay <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>.
