    Unemployed at the moment-well kind of. When you have your own business I guess you are never unemployed. I'm a Human Resources administrator for 8 years and looking to be in the field again. When not working secularly anything I can do at the winery. Sales and Marketing is the biggest part - oh I can't forget barrel washer as well! I work the tasting room on weekends. Love both my occupations but the boss of the winery doesn't pay real well!! :wink: :wink:

    DH and I owned an insurance agency until 1st retirement. Then I bought a mushroom delivery business. We delivered fresh from the farm mushrooms to restaurants (many Chinese), produce dealers and farmer's markets. We didn't grown them, just bought them from the local mushroom farms daily. I loved all the driving. Owned that for 5 years and sold it 2 years ago. Retired again...for good I hope.
