Completed Millwork and Cabinet making at college in Saskatchewan.
Worked for cabinet company after completing school.
Over the years I have taken collage courses in electrical, plumbing, welding and 2 years of "futures & hedging " Each instructor used to tell me, you don't know it all yet, just enough to be dangerous !
I do NOT have a journeyman certificate in anything !(Hindsight now says I should have) I will do anything now (within my limits) to help people further their education. Knowledge is a powerful tool in life.
Started my own remodelling business in my hometown. Specializing in kitchens and baths. Dust and my lungs made me change careers.
I have watched the technology change dramatically in my short lifetime. Wandering what I would have been able to accomplish if I had todays materials and tools 30 years ago ?
Two words that we were taught not to say or hear "Can't" and "Never".
Last 3 years have been terrible.
Moved back WEST to work at collage helping instuctors at a trade school. Welding,Electrical, Millwright. Moved back east to be with grandkids. All my tools stayed out west, no place here to put them. Today I wake up, go to work for minimum money, come home and sleep ! RETIREMENT ....BAH !
