I'm a librarian.

I first read that as "libertarian," and I was going to ask how you made a living doing that.

No, but I took the 'World's smallest political quiz', and it determined that I AM indeed a libertarian.

I'm a centrist leaning towards libertarianism.

I'll leave out the usual disclaimers about how poorly a few questions can determine where I stand on anything... and just shut up now. http://www.theadvocates.org/quiz-score/draw.php?p=6&e;=6

I own and operate a small HVAC (air conditioning/heating) business.


"Good morning, I'll be in that area and at your home between 9:30-11:30 this morning" "Yes, that's as early as I can be there"

actually have a 7:30-9:30 am with the excecutive course for a quick 9


Nice being the boss

My sister is studying to be a nurse right now. Then she wants to move from LPN to RN and then right to... whatever is right under a doctor. A nurse practitioner, I think...

Smart girl. It's a job that is in high demand, she can live almost anywhere she wants, and she'll make a decent living. Tell her she might want to see a financial adviser to help her prepare for retirement as soon as she starts working. Nurses usually have a crappy retirement. It's a job that is pretty tough on your body and ask any nurse and they will tell you...it's not something they want to be doing in late life. Say after 55. I am 33 and I already feel it. Also if she is unattached she might want to consider registry or travel assignments. That is a way to make some big money quick. You can make upwards of $50/hr + living expenses and sign on bonuses (at least out here). Out here in California we have a lot of travelers that are making bank. Also if she works it right ...she can take on assignments that are close to home so not much commuting is involved. Tell her good Luck and hang in there...it's a long road but worth it!

I am an Exercise Physiologist and the General Manager of two health clubs. Aside from the daily opperations of the clubs I do about 25-30 hours a week of personal training. I work for a guy named Peter Nielsen. He is the resident fitness expert on the NBC affiliate in Detroit. His show was recently syndicated nationally so look for him on TV in your town soon. You can check the show out at www.peternielsen.com Who knows? If the show takes off, I may be running health clubs all over the US. That way I can complain about not having enough time to play in multiple states.

I own my own home business selling my unique knit golf head covers from my web site and on Ebay. I also own another home business designing personalized laminated bookmarks which I have been doing for 9 years. I love being a work at home mom.

I'm a 4th year student from the University of Minnesota majoring in Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development. I'm graduating in about two weeks, which is a relief. I'm currently working in an Immunology Lab on campus and hopefully I'll stay on the lab staff and get a job after I graduate. I'm in talks with them right now and it looks like I'll get the job soon.

I've played about 3 rounds of golf this year and I want to get out more, but school is dragging me down.

    • Cycling to a golf course definitely adds an adventurous twist to the game. To make it feasible, consider paring down your gear and opting for lightweight equipment. Investing in a bike rack designed for golf clubs can also help ease the transportation process. Planning your route carefully and allowing for extra time can ensure a smooth ride to the course.When it comes to protecting your bike and gear, bicycle insurance is essential. Considering the investment in both your bike and golf equipment, it's wise to have coverage for unexpected events. You can explore bicycle insurance uk to find a policy that fits your needs.
    • Are these one putt percentages? Even if those three buckets between 12 and 30 feet are all 1 for 2, that's high. 3 for 6 from 12 to 30 feet is a serious outlier. The others could be: 15/16 6/11 7/12 5/13 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/9 67 putts total, which is probably 2 rounds? My rough shot at strokes gained for that lot would be: -0.6 + -2.8 + 0.0 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.8 + 0.9 + 0.0 = -0.7 (PGA Tour baseline). Over two rounds that's pretty good and extremely good for a 15 index baseline. I'd think a 15 index would be expected to be somewhere in the -6 over two rounds. And that's with 3-6ft killing you.
