    Chartered accountant by qualification but I tell folk Im no good at it, and still I get those "honorary treasurer" jobs in all the clubs Im involved in.

    .And own some properties and a head injury rehab business. I look after the $$ and I have a manager to look after the rehab business.

    Seems to work out okay some years, but occasionally I think I should just sell up and my wife & I should go to the USA and buy a motorhome and follow nostalgia drag racing for a year.

    Maybe next year aye

    Lots of things have changed my thinking lately about work and retirement. Seen too many people leave this life this year. My son is 25 on Labor day, my dad turned 80 and mt mom died in Feb. I appreciate my job more lately and all this stuff is getting the kick in the ass I need to put my wife and I in a better position so when that golden day arrives, I can down shift and mash the pedal!!!! That car to the left hasnt seen the road since 88!

    I like what I do for a living. I just have to work the equivalent of two full time jobs to support my family, sometimes it just starts getting to me, but most of the time I'm grateful for the opportunity.

    (I build stuff for tv commercials and movies)

    I love what I do.
    Monday is the best day of the week.
    Its all a game.
    Can I lift 22 million dollars worth of stuff and have it pointing exactly perfect?
    Even if I won the lottery, I'd probably only take off a couple of days.
    You know, to sober up and be able to read again.
