This is always the hard part to accomplish. There are very few short term temporary contract-type opportunities which aren't on some rigid schedule with deadlines and due dates (i.e. pressures that feel too much like w*rk). And that's contrary to the desire of "I'll get to it when I feel like it" which would be a nice occasional gig -- if you can find it.

Deadline-related stresses are too common for this sort of thing (unless your line of work is an unusual exception), which is a dealbreaker most of the time. When people want something, they almost always want it yesterday.

Good points. But I think I have one lined up that meets the criteria, for whenever I care to dive in. I'll post about it once I am sure it's legitimate (no, it doesn't involve opiates, pain, viagra, xanax, disability, etc. -- I'd have my pick if that was my style )

Congrats Rich and good luck with the clinic. We will look forward to stories. I hope the job busting health care law eventually lives ironically up to it's pejorative moniker and puts you out of your volunteer gig

I was kinda wondering how long it would take until the travel to NV got bothersome.

You have a good soul to want to give some of your time to the Tampa clinic. Kudos to the max.

I won't be coming to FL this year, so you can have all the crab legs to yourself !

Already gorged: snow crabs for me, stone crabs for DW, and blue crab for our friends. Great place on the water called, aptly, the Crab Shack.

The service is awful, the decor is post-WW2 (barely), it's loud, and everything but the crabs and the beer is fried in some innovative type of grease.

Great place.

From the description, I do believe I have dined in a similar place. Must be a chain...

Laughter is the best medicine, eh? Start practicing the lines.



There's even a theme song.

Funny how even a tiny work commitment can come to interfere with serious play!

Congratulations!
