Iím a street worker everyone. Itís not as bad as everyone might think. Oh, sure. We get out there and work hard on some days. On some days, we put asphalt in potholes and smooth it out, and other days we might saw limbs that get in the way in alleys, but on other days, we just ride around and make sure the storm drains donít have any straw or dirt in them (after itís been raining) and pretty much shoot the breeze.

So what's your profession? (dont be shy :D )

I'm a fry cook. But, no matter what your job title is, be the best you can be, whether it's the best streetworker, babysitter, or fry cook.

Used to be a legal secretary for 28+ years, now a stay-at-home mom of three kids: 12, 10, and 5. Am currently a "volunteer extraordinaire" in the PTA and booster club.

I own, operate, and adore a tiny vintage boutique in a historic 1895 limestone building. I'm also a stained glass artist. But best of all, I'm mom to 3 great teenage boys.

I'm a high school teacher. I'm also father to 5 children (11, 9, 9, 4, 6 months). This may explain why I sometimes have trouble getting to the computer and posting the next showdown.

I'm the Maytag Man! All brands of appliances really. I just figured you'd all "get it" if I introduced myself as he. I reside in the beautiful town of Grass Valley California where real estate is WAY overpriced!

I have two daughters. Oldest is 25 with two kids. Youngest is 22 and in the Army.

Is that so? Funny, you couldn't even unplug the bathroom sink in Red Bank, NJ. Oh wait. You aren't really Terry, are you?

So what's your profession? (dont be shy :D )
I am "THE BOSS" at a place called Video Monitoring Services in Presque Isle, Maine. My department watches TV commercials from markets all across the USA and writes brief descriptions of qualifying. Then we do a digital recording of the ad and transfer it to a server in the NY office so our clients can download and watch competitors ads.
The court system uses our work, too. Believe it or not, there are laws that say you can't air similar ads withing 7.5 minutes of one another. The court system also uses our news transcripts.

What do I do for a living...SURVIVE!


I am a photo editor, photo researcher, photo teacher, Photoshop guru and every so often, I'll take a shot or two.

I started in photojournalism, worked TV, wire service and newspapers. Now, I work in the communications department for a large manufacturer. I've taught photography in college, both credit and fun stuff courses.

Don't shoot much now. I juggle photos more often.

It was a play on the abbreviation...T.C. I was in Red Bank a few years ago and Terry and I played guitars until 5:30 AM. What a night that was.

I am a Communicable Disease Investigator -- investigate things like the 2003 SARS outbreak and the Legionella outbreak in Toronto.

Interesting - sometimes ... tiring - all of the time! Never a dull moment when you work for a city with 2.4 million people.

Underwear model.

Unfortunately so far no jobs have come my way.. I've been in the game for 25 years now and been overlooked by some of the best in the business.

Below is exactly the same as me. ..( exactly the same gender that is.....)

Proves that us Lightfoot fans have an eclectic and extensive knowledge base. I agree Al but the IFBB is cracking down on the belly/gut issue and the top guys in this years Mr. Olympia are getting the message, although more work is needed.

As long as bb's are trying to get freakishly huge, they will always have large guts because of the large amounts of food they need to consume to maintain 320 lbs and 10% body fat in the off-season. Granted they lose 20-30lbs, dehydrate themselves and reduce body fat to dangerously low levels (5%, some claim less)for contest but the big bellies still don't go away.

I always think of Mr. O as a large, well proportioned bb. These guys who are under 6' just don't look impressive to me. Gunter looked the best in my opinion. Coleman is great, but to me he looks very unhealthy from years of steroid abuse. You cannot be natural and turn pro in IFBB, but some of these guys look like their knocking on death's door.

Compare Arnold in his prime and then look at Coleman. Coleman makes Arnold look like a kid because Coleman is almost cartoonish in size. Arnold on the otherhand is much more symetric. This is what I think the IFBB should set the standard back to, not mass.

I'm not really into bb, but I like to stay current with it because it amazes me the amount of discipline it takes to build such bodies, steroids and all, doesn't matter.
Are you referring to bodybuilding or strong man competitions?

When you said Mr. O was large, I thought you meant big and fat like a strong man competitor, not rugged and muscular like a bodybuilder.
