I've been a school teacher for 22 years. I plan to retire from that in 6 years.

I do contract work for Arkansas Game and Fish. We mainly do wildlife forage and maintain about 2800 acres of AGF owned land. From hayfields to native warm seasons to annuals. Wheat in the fall millet sunflowers haybean mixes for the summer.

I don't work anymore. :D I have bees and am building that into something that will involve small amounts of work and do a few little AI projects here and there if I like the people and the cattle but cows are my living now.

I worked for a beekeeper for 2-1/2 years about 20 years ago (one of the best known in the country, and only about 2 miles from my house). I don't have any bees now, but might get some when I retire.

I've work here for almost 19 years: https://tti.tamu.edu/group/crashtesting/. I started out on the construction crew, but since 2009 I've mostly sat behind a desk creating the 3d models and drawings for the stuff we crash test.

I have been in IT since 1980. Seen a lot of changes in computers. I'd suggest the biggest impact on our lives have been the computer, (big ones) the PC and the internet, maybe in that order.

I worked most of my years in manufacturing. I have probably caused 10,000 or more people to lose their jobs through automation. Something to be proud of, right?

I am now working for a bank, still in IT, but I am doing it at home on the farm. Trying to learn how to be a cattleman.
