    I am grateful to my dad, though. He spent 30+ years in that capacity. It was a union job. We had full benefits and he was able to provide for his family while my mom stayed home and took care of us. Nowadays, single incomes don't get it done. My wife and I both have to work, and it's barely enough!
    I love Outdoor Christmas Lights!!

    I actually took an early retirement about 4 years ago. I was a Human Resources Director for a local bank. I then helped my husband with his company. I have diabetes and lost part of my foot last year due to a severe infection. Now I'm on long-term disability.

    I've studied photography and shoot mostly weddings and baptisms. It's the kind of photography I detest. I've always liked portrait photography and that's what my portfolio is based on. But now with digital photography it's less about being good and mostly about manipulating photos on the computer.
    Anyway I live in a small place and it's not a full time job, so I also work at a jewellery shop close to an ancient site and deal with tourists from around the world daily. It's fun but I have to stand on my feet for long hours. Plus since english wasn't enough I had to learn a few french and italian too.

    I work as a financial administrative assistant for a bank, next to that I am working hard to obtain my bachelor degree in Communications(I have an associates degree in Marketing & Communications) and I go to school 2 evenings a week and on Saturday.

    Currently I am looking for a job that is more of a match with my education. But the financial crisis is felt here as well and it's hard to find something.

    How is the business there? I know a few stevedore industries that have become victim to the loss of work.

    I love digital, but I think it has really hurt artistic creativity. With film, you were forced to be more creative and artistic with composition/angle/lighting/theme. With digital, it is so easy to filter the photo or change the lighting.

    I think it has hurt the artistic side of it.
