    I am an electrician/electronics tech./ For and oil company based in houston Texas. I work 14 days on and 14 days off. I have 6 months out of the year at home with my dear wife and two daughters Sarah and Emily. It is rough them other 6 months I am gone. But my responsibilties includes any electrical repair done on the rig. Also any computer related issues. Like repairs are programming. Most all of my equipment aboard my rig runs off of PLC's which is just another computer program. I have been out here every since I finished college. I would love to come home to a job where that i could be in my own bed with my wife every night. But their just is not that many jobs in Ms. That you can make any money at. I personally do not want to live in a big city. i am sure that i could find something to do in a town to make a living. But that is just not for me. So what do you all do for a living?

    I am a butcher. Not big money, but it pays most of the bills most of the time. Just good, steady work I guess. When my boss kicks off, I with be:boss: filthy rich compared to now where I am just filthy. If it moves, kill it, cut it into small pieces, warm to desired temp., and enjoy.

    Where I work,we take chicken blood,about 15,000 lbs. every 30 minutes,mix it with chicken fat,adjust a few things,then send it out to be mixed into feed for cattle.It is a big process,done by computer,and it is a nice dry powder when it is done.

    What is interesting about it is,cows do not normally process fat in their first stomch,so we wrap it up in blood,which is the protein,and it gets by the first stomach,and is used by the cow...

    Another thing I did not know until working here,is that milk farmers are paid by milk-fat percent,hence,they seem to be liking this stuff.

    hours are 3.5 on/3.5 off..

    Quite a change after being in the tropical fish hobby for 15 years...:smile2:

    Peace and Plenty,
