I have been a zookeeper, musician, programmer, author, and editor. I currently edit/rewrite (but not translate) scientific articles by foreign authors for publication in English-language journals in various fields: AI, computer engineering, statistics, graphical systems, robotics, music, psychology, education, geographic information systems, etc.. I also program Microsoft Word to help other editors perform their tasks more efficiently and train other programmers.

I have spent over 45 years as Civil/Structural Engineer in heavy industrial and marine engineering. Still at it, mainly in Marine engineering. Like to use the bike to visit the projects in the summers.

End of May I will have worked 2 months shy of 50 years, working on British Rail/Railtrack/Network Rail, not sure if I am retiring in May, or do one more year, till I get my state pension.

I can't believe I've missed this thread, it has made a fascinating read.

Started out life as a Marine Engineer, then Commissioning Engineer, then Selling.  Ended up as a partner in a Business and Promotional Gift company took early retirement at 59 as I thought I'd earnt enough to retire!  Ten years into retirement so far so good, should be fine up to 73 as far as money is concerned......then?

I love riding and am an active National Observer for Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists and I ride for the National Escort Group who escort cycle events.  We work very closely with local Police Riders on the five National Events we have each year in my area.  Fortunately, the local cops like our input and treat us as equals so it is very exciting but can be stressful; I love it!

Have enjoyed being an active Granddad but at 8 and 12 they are now ploughing their own furrows and teach me about tech.

All we have to do now is learn to live with this Global Pandemic, I can't polish my bike too much more, she needs to go riding, as do I.
Love, light, and kindness,

Dave
