    My Venting Session.

      Back in May of this year, my wife lost her job. It was her fault, instead of being aware of a memo, she disregarded it. So, to no suprise, she was fired. No unemployment benifits either. I have been the sole source of income, and as a state worker, it isnt much. To make...

    I've Really Blown It

    Never Give Up!

    Financial ruin. What a concept! I have found that financial ruin always has another step down for you to take. I guess the ground floor is a cardboard condo over a sidewalk subway grate. After making a living during my first 16 years and then making a good living for the next...
