Re: part time or occassional work

In my case, I can select the days that I want to work - I'm not obligated to work
every ballgame. So, no real loss of freedom.

What's the next boom ?

Stocks boomed in the 90's and crashed in 2000.
Real Estate boomed in the early 2000's and has come back to earth in the last
year (at least partly so).

What's the next BOOM ? Any guesses ?
