Default Whats your occupation?

I did a little search and found one from like 2007, so i figure there are new people and some jobs have changed.
So what does everyone do for a living?
I work for Kiwi Indian Motorcycles, we do Indians from 1936-1953 when Indian closed their doors, Everything from a ground up restoration, minor repairs, Engine rebuilds, (my boss Mike has actually re-designed the origional engines and manufactures them.) Also make new frames that replicate origional bikes, My position is pretty general, I mostly build the engines, and assemble restoration bikes. Its definately an interesting job and LOVE what i do.
So what do you do?

How do these welds look [X(]

Was on a job here a few years ago and could not believe my eyes when we saw them. Guess they were OK though?

Those buckets are at the corner of the high walls.

Self employed landscape gardener.


I do garden clean-ups, weeding, pruning, planting, mulching, cut down small trees, paving, fencing, timber decking, rock gardens, sleeper walls and then some.

Pretty much everything a garden needs EXCEPT mowing.
Mowing sucks.

I love what I do.
Get to be outdoors all day, work at different sites, do what I want when I want and don't have to take orders from anyone.
