That's it. Time to bring LavaCon back to its Hawaiian roots.

So, just returned from a 10 day trip to Kauai. When we landed on the island last week and stepped off into clear blue skies with 80+ weather and promptly snatched a drink on the way to the beach, I lamented to my husband that it would be just wonderful to relocate . . . after all, as an independent contractor, my clients can be anywhere, right? My husband, always the practical one, (or a buzzkill, really) commented that the extreme time difference between Hawaii and my mainland clients wouldn't probably be that feasible, and that I would actually probably have to consider getting a golden handcuff job - not that I could find one in such a "chill"/low-tech environment. The next day, we opened up The Garden Island, which is small daily paper for the island of Kauai. It is about as thick as a comic book and has a smattering of sports and national/international news, a realty section (ranging from too pricey to way too ridiculously pricey) and a small want ads section as well. (Anybody remember these before the days of Monster, etc?) Well, smack dab in the middle of this want ads section with its usual request for service jobs (think Hyatt Valet, bartender, etc.) was a quarter page ad for a FULL TIME editor/paginator for the paper itself and full on skills in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign were mandatory.
The job provides full medical/dental benefits, company-matched 401K (I know that this perk has gone the way of the DoDo bird for even some of the Fortune 500 companies), paid vacation (yea, but you're permanently on vacation when you live in Kauai, right?) and even sick leave. (Uh, sorry boss . . got the flu again. . . hope you don't see me paddle-boarding Popiu

I think that my husband took me seriously for a few minutes after I read him the ad and threatened to cancel my return ticket to Denver. :-)

Don't know if relocation would be included for the right candidate, but jess' saying. . . . LOL.
