Great question - loving the variety of vocations!
I'm actually getting paid to learn beekeeping! In addition to being a bit of a ranch hand.
Because our production facility is still in northern California I am not yet getting my hands into making mead but soon will be learning that too! Life takes some funny turns! Last year I was remodeling a guy's house, now I'm working for him growing his 12 year old mead business.
Fun stuff!

High School science teacher, University Instructor, Ph.D. student, husband, father of five... We have a small market "garden" and sell healthy (I heartily disapprove of what has become of "organic" so I don't use that term.) veggies, eggs, chickens, and hopefully soon, honey to the locals.

Living life heartily!

That word is getting heartily abused, isn't it?

I'm retarded, ER, I mean retired, or is it both. With all these high class vocations, this lowly sewing machine mechanic feels kinda left out. Especially when I quit school in the ninth grade.

I guess being president of a C chapter corp., managing partner of an LLP, managing partner of an LLC, and president of an S chapter Corp., all at the same time, may make up for it a bit.

The company I founded and ran until retirement.

I work on our family farm and on my uncle's farm too sometimes.  We raise corn and soybeans.

I help a few local people on construction projects, roofing and cement work when needed

I also enjoy fixing up motorcycles in the winter.

Bees are a more recent hobby (on my second year) and I love it, I love learning, the challenge and the honey, I don't love being frustrated at not knowing how to manage them all the time, but you all here on this forum are a huge blessing.  And I cant wait until I'm like one of you who have been doing this for years.

Fixing other peoples mistakes for 28 years in waterproofing and any painting related thing you can dream up. Getting too old for that so focused on these now. Mobile music recording, surveillance systems, playing bass and or harmonica in rock and blues bands and keeping ahead of the new presidents desire to destroy my way of life so other do nothings can feed off of my hard work.  Wink

The bees moved into the house and we kept them. I spend all of my other time keeping the bee's environment as pest free as possible so they can live happily ever after. Oh yeah and maybe I can legitimately get some honey from them while leaving enough for them to not be fed artificially in the oh so cold Florida winter.
