My Top 10:

  1. Plumber. We’ll always need ’em. And what they charge is downright illegal.
  2. Roofer. As my brother says, “Someone will always need their roof fixed or repaired.” That’s job security.
  3. Dishwasher. Job security is high. Pay isn’t good. But a lot of people depned on you.
  4. Toll taker. Need math skills and the ability to absorb insults and comments. Job security is becoming shaky.
  5. Fung Wah bus driver. Job security is high. Need the ability to handle a fire exstinguisher.
  6. High-rise window washer. Windows will always need washing. Fear-of-heights people need not apply.
  7. Landscapers. Grass will always need cutting. And with the imigrant laws tightening, the need will grow (no pun intentded) here in the U.S.
  8. Customer service phone reps. As the online world keeps growing, so will the need for customer assistance by phone (or chat).
  9. Sushi chefs. When steak or seafood restaraunts are serving sushi, the need is clear. Being Japanese is a plus.
  10. Dog poop police. Old-school thinking on this (letting your dog poop anywhere and not picking it up) is going the way of th Dodo bird. Enforcement is needed.

New England Patriots are still in the Super Bowl hunt

Micheal Silver of SI.com still believes the Pats can get back to the Super Bowl. I agree. If they beat the Chicago Bears tomorrow, it will go a long way in getting them back to the big game. The playoffs start now!

Golfing in space

Russian cosmonauts went golfing in space on November 22. I’m still waiting for us to go back to the moon. We can’t seem to get out of our own orbit. Plus there’s great (golf) course potential on the cheese moon.
