I'd better not mention that I have a BSc in computer science & used to be a DBA. And I will keep very quiet about my knowledge of the Alexander technique  [:I]

Please don't keep Quiet..LOL I hurt my back today as a matter of fact.. LOL I had my feet elevated and had to go to the loo. when i swung my feet down I twisted a tiny twist and wrenched my back really bad, all the way across the lower back above the tush! Is there really something to it! I have read a little but don't know a lot. I have heard it can actually help out with back problems etc!! Pray do tell... I think I better come see you soon!! LOL :) ;)

 It is a technique in which someone teaches you how to do everyday activities as sitting walking lifting anything really but by putting less stress on the body etc .. I think I read also about light touches which help you to change the way you may walk or carry your body or move etc.. Doc could explain mor I am sure I know very little about it!LOL

That is a good thing to be! How old are you and are you already a husband and father!

Thanks! Though not quite as young as some of the members! I'm currently doing a PhD in forestry in Freiburg in Germany, and I also co-ordinate a pan-European scientific consortium in forestry. This means that I get to travel a bit to Poland, Spain, Portugal and some other places, so I'm pretty lucky. Freiburg is also in a lovely area of Germany, near the Black Forest. Lakes, clear air, and not far from France, Switzerland and Austria. It's a perfect environment for raising boys - loads of outdoors stuff!

It's ok - my American geography is pretty weak! If you look at Germany, Freiburg is at the far bottom left just NE of Basel, where France, Switzerland and Germany all meet on the Rhine. Ah yes, it'S also wine producing country, but I guess there's a lot near you isn't there?

But a landscape of vineyards is very beautiful, especially in the autumn.

Yes, That is the truth! Wine country can be breathtaking, at times it can look barren also, but it is beautiful!

ok back to reality. i really don't know what i want to actually be when i grow up (i'm only twenty three!) but i do know what i want to do next... the corporate office for the company i work for is in our parking lot. that's where the buyers work... buyers essentially shop for a living and go on trips everywhere for free and make a ton of money. that's my next step
i can handle all the non fun paper work and stuff too. as soon as an assistant buyer position opens up, i'm going for it. then i can go to school at night and get an actual marketing degree and i'm good to go when a real buyer position is open. that's my plan

Wow, now that sounds like a great plan.

Let's see, what would I like to be when I grow up, I know, I want to be a tree :)

Otherwise I wouldn't mind being a photographer, travel all round the world for the National Geographic etc ;)
