    Fed Up of Working

    Ever since the age of 14 I've been working.  I am now 52 and I'm fed up! Some day I would like to wake up and ask myself what to do! Today in my country it is Thanksgiving and although I have much to be greatful for, still I crave for a change.

    What Is A Job Anymore?

    I have tried several jobs, which either pay too little, have way too many constraints and politics, or simply consist of dredging out a daily living through the service supplied (whether needed or simply the latest fad). I am pretty much done with that. I worked in Columbus...
