Basic Information

About ranald
Biography:
When at school I had before and after school jobs of collecting paper money, service station attendant, newspaper sales.
Love to make things especially from wood. Started with B& D hobby tools to make toys in early 70's then had some small commissions to forge my interest.
I have been employed in Admin, owner built a couple of houses, head cashier, structural landscaper,horticulturist, grave digger, parks maintenance contractor, picture framer and nurseryman & handyman.
I was a pioneer in the brute ute craze during 1970's.
In Aus I was the first to train and use guys as cashiers in large supermarkets around 1989 which had always been a female only scenario( except for owner operators).

At the 1981 management meeting I suggested the great circle bus route that took Brisbane transport from the red into a profit making enterprise in early 1980's. Previously had been at a loss for decades.
During the 1990's Noosa received 5 firsts in "tidy towns" during my 7 years of contract maintenance.
Currently have several health issues I'm working through. Chronic fatigue has slowed me down somewhat and I will beat it.

If I hate anything it would have to be the "throw away " attitude of our current society: it is centred around big business.
