    Wednesday 12th of August

    They gave the job to someone else. Pffft.....! At least they called as promised. Nowadays one is lucky to even get a potential employer to acknowledge they received an application or resume'. Back to square one.

    Toosdeeeeeeeee 11th August

    Morning, Sabby, All: Glad you are feeling better. Who isn't tired of the whole deal? :yawn: I've tried to find work outside of nursing, but there just isn't anything out there....at least not for me. :( Had my interview yesterday. It went OK. They said I will hear something "one way or the other" by tomorrow. Have a great day!
  3. 1) Retain a lawyer and establish a blind trust fund. 2) Wipe every creditor I have off the face of the earth. 3) Get my sister to an Opthamologist and Dentist (she is going blind from cataracts and all her teeth are falling out). 4) Have my clunker car and my sister's van hauled off to the junk yard and buy new cars for us both. 5) Buy new houses for me and and my sister and BIL. 6) Go to Disney World.

    Good Morning, Thursday, August 6th

    Morning, All: Joe, congratulations on passing the Boards! :yeah: Jnette, hope you are feeling better. Summer colds have got to be THE worst! I have a promising job interview set up for Monday--a telephone triage position at a local Pediatrician's office. Will let you know the outcome. I received a phone call yesterday from a recruiter at a home care company regarding a Quality Improvement position I had applied for last week. I was very excited at the prospect of getting back into QI, as I had done it for years with at least two other Medicare-certified agencies. That didn't last long. Instead of setting up a date and time for an interview, she proceeded to tell me 'why' I wasn't qualified for the job. :confused: She then asked me if I would be interested in a field position? I politely declined. She ended the call. Maybe I am being presumptuous, but I think this was a rather backhanded attempt to get me to fulfill her staffing needs for a position that I neither applied for or am even remotely interested in. I made up my mind after my last job that my days of doing field work are over. I did it for over 20 years, and I am DONE. Even if I wanted to do field nursing again, I couldn't afford to buy another car to do it with. So, if my upcoming interview doesn't pan out, I'll keep on looking. Have a great day, everybody!

    Thank the lord it's Friday!

    I know what you mean. There's NOTHING worse than being stuck in a job that you loathe....and with no light at the end of the tunnel. I have been out of work now for two months, and am utilizing each day that I remain eligible for unemployment benefits to make a deliberate as well as intelligent job search. I am trying to find something outside of nursing, but it isn't easy.....especially at my age.

    Good morning Thursday July 30th

    Will be keeping my fingers crossed for you, Joe. I remember how tired (and brain-dead) I was, after taking the boards. Back in those days test-taking was done with pencil and paper and took two days to take and two months before we knew whether we passed or failed.

    I am being punished!!!

    I have read a lot of horror stories where consumers (regardless of their payment and credit history, etc.) are having their lines of credit arbitrarily reduced or their accounts closed with no notice. The bank who held one of my credit cards did the same thing....and just before Christmas last year. I wasn't surprised, seeming that they had just been sued by the Federal Trade Commission for unfair and deceptive business and collection practices. Their response was to turn right around and stick it to their customers....again.
  9. Morning, All: 40 years ago today, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon. I remember it well: I had just turned 18 and graduated from high school the month before. I lay on my bed and watched history unfold on a little 13" black-and-white portable TV. I don't know what was more thrilling: Neil Armstrong taking that first step or Walter Cronkite's reaction. "And that's the way it was". Rest in peace, kind Sir.
  10. ...or from the 14 million (and counting) who are currently unemployed...including Yours Truly. Good luck to them.

    Good Bye Michael Jackson

    I loved John Mayer's solo guitar performance of "Human Nature" : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvrtuAmHHnI I got chills watching it, for he is the same age as my son, who is also a pretty fair guitarist in his own right. As a matter of fact, he and his church's band just returned from playing a series of concerts over the 4th of July weekend at Staten Island. This was his first trip to NYC, and he got to see Ground Zero, Times Square, Radio City Music Hall, the Chrysler Building, etc. He had a great time.

    Good Bye Michael Jackson

    A very moving and touching tribute. Even my BIL, who is not a fan of pop music was impressed. An Emmy nod hopefully should go to Kenny Ortega, who did a wonderful job of directing it with only days notice and under very stressful circumstances.

    Michael Jackson Dies of Heart Attack!!!

    Actually, Katherine has temporary custody of the kids. I heard on CNN last night that while she and Joe have been married for 60 years, they have been living separate lives for quite some time. She lives in the family compound in Encino and he lives in Vegas. And, yes, I am also repulsed by Joe Jackson's behavior, as this is neither the time or the place for him to be hawking his new record label. Quincy Jones, who produced three of Michael's award-winning albums ("Off the Wall", "Thriller" and "Bad"), and was very close to him, summed it up best: "This is ALL about money. It makes me SICK". I think it was darned straight of Michael to leave his father with EXACTLY what he deserved: NOTHING.
  15. Indeed. "Let 'em eat cake". Grrrrrr.....! :angryfire
