Default What does everyone do for a living?

(Jus' had to start this subject back up 'cause it got such good reviews when ScottyB started it on the old forum!)

I'm a homebuilder. Another guy and I do everything from the land-scaping to the chimney, and everything in between... decks, garages, windows, plumbing, electrical, shingle & metal roofs, etc.

This is a picture... (WE CAN POST PICTURES! YAY!) of a garage we built last summer to store the owner's classic collectable (mint!) cars in.
The big door is for his dragster and trailer (he owns Tommy Ivo's famous dragster).

This is my first post, so I thought I would begin with the basics. I live in Palmer, Alaska. I work for the state as a case manager for Child Protective Services. I am also a firefighter and rescue tech with the local fire department. I'm just starting out in the metal detecting hobby so I figured this was a good place to start.

I'm a Relationship Manager at an insurance company. I get to travel often, but unfortunately I have yet to take my detector with me for some relaxing exercise.

I'm originally from Ma., but moved to NC. I'm heading back to MA this spring, and have a great place to detect. I'm originally from Worcester County, and will be looking around the Quabbin Reservoir. I have a place that may be awesome!

I live 5 mins from gate 43. Are you referring to Dana common? Yes it is still above water BUT the quabbin watershed is federal land, which means you cant MD unfortunately. Ever since 9/11, they keep a very close eye on that area. Not saying people haven't, or YOU can't, just that it's illegal, and your gear may be confiscated and further action may be taken. Not worth risking IMO, especially with all this land that ISNT off limits. Just yesterday I found a 250+ year old copper coin in a park tearout. You just never know up in the northeast. I have lived in Worcester county my whole life (only 30 years) and have alot of spots I would be willing to share with you. From parks right in Worcester, to cellar holes, town owned farmland, old ballfields, etc... I would steer clear of the reservoir though, just my 2 cents! On a side note, I am a custodian at WPI here in Worcester. Been at it for about 7 years now. I used to do framing/carpentry, from the age of 14-21. Had a baby girl in 2012 and that same year I started at WPI. Had a baby boy in 2016, got married in 2017 and still trucking on! Love this place!

I'm a locksmith. Recently started doing more transponder keys, we had been doing on board programing and then cloning now using diagnostic tool. The car manufactures could not have made it more confusing if they had tried!!! INSANE. If any of you need advice about your car happy to help. Word of warning ask the price before car dealerships make keys for you and make them prove your car even has a transponder, or you may pay 150.00 or more for a 2.00 key.

I've been working in radio and television for about 25 years now directing newscasts. Here's to hoping MDing can supplement a salary that rivals that of a migrant worker.

A nice $300,000 toy they carelessly let me use every day for a few hours. And yes, I do know what each button does.



Yes, that is indeed an "easy button".

I've been a creative in advertising for 20 years. The last 3.5 I've been self-employed.

So if anyone needs ads, websites, social-media:

That was a good thread and the longest one I think.

How about we submit pics of us at work or of your work if you have one handy.

I mostly do finish carpentry work (interior staircases and hand rail)
Also Internet marketing, webdesign and everything in between.
