Sailor I'm a home care and hospice nurse and the wee is perfect for visiting patients in their homes. I get paid for my time and my mileage is reimbursed at the same rate as cage drivers.

Folks around these parts have a hard time driving when it's dry, much less wet. Plus, the pay wasn't great, no benefits. But..you got to ride some really cool stuff.
Was this full or part time?

Yup for me its a wide range though.... from studio work (portraits), city/landscapes and macro work.

As for the food photographers you dont want to know what that food is like :twisted: hmmm bleach
