Don't know about Negeltu, but we all know that Chris doesn't sleep.  That's why he has to take a month off once in a while.  He tells us that he's doing all this other stuff, but he's really sleeping for about 3 weeks and then waking up for about a week.   Grin Grin Grin

Too funny Rev, but I had actually just gotten back from a date with Patty and I was still wired, so I thought I would visit.

Hehe..  I can't go to sleep until 8 or 10am.  I only sleep about 6hrs a day, but my cycle is moved ahead.  Try as I might I have never been able to change it.  So peaceful at night though.  I prefer it.  Smiley

I usually get one night a week off and to keep from screwing up my schedule and throwing my sleep cycle off, I will usually turn all night on my night off.  Thats when I am able to do things like that Bradford Pear Natural edge bowl.   It is so nice to turn 8 hours or more undisturbed.

I do the flip flop, a couple of 7p-7a, then one, sometimes 2 7a-7p, then back to nights. Never know which way to go.  Makes it hard and often unsafe to go in the shop.

  I guess I am lucky on one aspect of my lousy work hours, and that is that they are constant, no shifting around.  I would think that in your profession Ned that hours like that and what they do to you would be bad not only for you but for those you treat.

We get pretty used to it. Your usually good to go at work, it is the home time that you loose.
