Best Jobs -

JLS computers was darn good. We were making PC's back in the early 80's in Toronto. There were only 5 or 6 people in the company and it was lots of fun, and the pay was good. Our most advanced machine had 256k as I recall!

Rolling Thunder's Camp (late 70's)...chopped wood, gathered wood, took care of goats, chickens, rabbits and other critters, and did gardening and whatever else came up. No pay at all, but 3 good meals a day, a place to live, and marvelous company and shared ideals! Best time I ever had in my life. I wouldn't call it a job so much as a lifestyle, though.

Folksinging in a real folk club...well, it's hard to beat that, when you're in the mood for it.

Worst Jobs -

Assembly line work.

Tobacco picking.

House renovating. (I don't like carpentry much at all.)

Taxi Driving. (the worst pay in the world and the longest hours)

Worm Picking! (The absolute WORST of them all!!! Yuck!)

Radio Shack (with the boss from Hell)

Good jobs are hard to find...
