I'd go back to building spec. Simple homes for simple people. I'd draw them, build them and sell them after they were done or almost done without all the headaches of actually dealing with the buyers and their demands after all that is my only complaint in this business. Perfect lifestyle IMO.
I spent my last 10 years (out of 30) doing just that.

Easiest 10 years, easiest work, least hours
Least stressful 10 years
Most fun 10 years
Most profitable, by far.

I've had some people tell me that because I like to eat, and apparently like to complain, I should become a food critic.

papagor, there are many ways people die as a direct result of the negligence of others, I listed just a few. What makes the negligent act of driving drunk worse than the others?

If it were me, I would change the law to punish all negligent acts that injure/kill another or put them at risk. The law would not specify the act itself because that would limit it.

Disclaimer: I quit drinking more than 40 years ago, never drove while drunk.

I smoked an oz . every week for nearly 14 years !! You got a question ?
No question for you, but was wondering about warner. The comversation was about driving drunk, just related it to operating a crane stoned.

No real problem with drinking or smoking, as long as not endangering anyone, and i would guess to get an operators licence there would and should be drug tests

The wife just got her first real job. RN, 55k to start, free benefits. Not too bad.

I just got my CDL permit and working towards a millwright/rigging position which should lead to crane certification. I turned the opportunity down last year, supposed to get it again in April.

So will you still do your woodwork company or work full time for millwright company .

I would be a beer quality tester.

Maybe a politician if I felt like Hell was a nice abode.

Stay at home Dad.
