What Is Your Dream Job?

Rambling Web has moved. Read entire Dream Job article.


"I was recently laid off from a small company where I served as the Web Developer / Web Designer of several websites. While this is my chosen field, I definitely did not grow up thinking 'I want to be a web master when I grow up,' and certainly didn't grow up thinking, 'I want to be a web mistress when I grow up.' Not only was there no internet to speak of at the time, the absurdity of the job titles would have DQ'd them instantly.

So as I work to get my own sites and resume together, I have been thinking: What would truly be my 'dream job.' First up, 'Furniture Maker & Service Dog Trainer.' This job combination truly fits the 'dream' category, as any realistic look at this as an option knocks it right off the potential job list. First and foremost, I have no furniture making skills. Am handy enough that if someone was in desperate need of a table, I could probably put one together. However, I'm not interested in being a lousy furniture maker. Second, I don't have the appropriate set up for even owning a dog let alone training a service dog. This doesn't get crossed off my 'maybe some day' list, but it certainly doesn't cut it as either a source of income or a practical short term objective..."

PEM - Peobody Essex Musem Exhibits Good for Children

Rambling Web Has Moved read full article at A Good Week for Kids to Attend the Peobody Essex Museum...

"The Peobody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass. is currently featuring three exhibits that are well suited for children. The 'California Design 1930-1965 Living in a Modern Way' is good for adults and children. It's fun, colorful, and interesting; an entertaining history lesson on the rapid development of California based off its unique style . It is also an excellent introduction to industrial design. The exhibit runs through July.

Mom and I, Looking for the Hookers in the Windows

Rambling Web has moved... Here's a clip from today's post: Looking for Hookers with My Mother... In Amsterdam

"...One night at dinner my mother, my aunt, my aunt’s friend and I were talking about tomorrow’s activities in Amsterdam. My aunt and mother were discussing how they heard that the prostitutes in Amsterdam stood in glass storefronts. The three of them, I thought, were joking when they decided it would be fun to find these ‘hookers in the windows.’ My mother scheduling this activity would not have been too shocking, but it was unexpected from my aunt and her friend as I thought it was a well known fact that hookers are rarely kept in the nice part of town.

Anyway, that afternoon after seeing the sights, my mother, aunt, her friend, and I went out looking for hookers. The belief was that hookers wouldn’t go on duty until the afternoon, so as it got dark we started trying to find the red light district. As it became clear that they were not joking, I started to protest.

“Is this really a good idea?” … “I doubt the hookers live in the nice part of town.” … “Seriously, are we really looking for the hookers in the windows?...”

Quotes from Leonardo da Vinci

Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.

A well-spent day brings happy sleep.

The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions.

The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.

There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, those who do not see.

Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination when awake?

Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.

Water is the driving force of all nature.

Where there is shouting, there is no true knowledge.

For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.

Learning never exhausts the mind.

He who wishes to be rich in a day will be hanged in a year.

The smallest feline is a masterpiece.

Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous.
