    I enjoy job sites too.  I love seeing things get built.  When I was at the WTC, my job had to do with office construction and space planning for my firm - working with the architects, engineers and construction contractors.  We built office space for 300 people including a couple of trading floors.  Then just when we were almost done with that, the company changed its mind, so we moved out of the WTC and into a different building across Broadway, and all of that had to be built out to our specs.  It was a cool job.

    In NY, did you ever meet any of the Native American construction guys?  They're mostly from upper NY State and come down to work in the trades, primarily steel construction (their traditional specialty) but not exclusively.  They're very interesting people.  I got to know one who was called "Chief" - fullblooded Mohawk with black hair down to his waist.  He looked like he came out of a movie.  Quite a guy.

    Perhaps some mighty victory is growing in you now. - Mike Finley
