The "ME" Room


[Nice picture isn't it.] Sorry about this picture, it was taken after a particularly long stretch of night shifts.

My name is Rob Laird and I have worked rotating shift work for 21 years , 1 month, 6 days and ....

hours, for an electrical utility. I have worked eight hour shifts, twelve hour shifts and many different types of schedules.

Shift work provides for a different type of life style. I hope you have found the information at this web site helpful and informative.
