I have a website of my own ( herbalindex.com ), but, your online skills may warrant the development of a "discussion board" that you moderate. I think that you would enjoy doing it, and might see an income as a result.
Who are you referring in your post Old Geezer? I would like to feel flatered and think it is me, Granny Smith, but I think you must be talking to someone else.

Hello Granny Smith! I was talking to "TankerWife", but, if you feel that my advice fits your needs - you should also give it some thought. You'd be doing what you're doing now, only with some potential for income and a greater control over the whole show.

Good Morning Old Geezer!
What a cool idea... I never thought of doing anything like this for a possible income. That would be totally sweet if I could pull that off. Make money and have fun too, who wouldn't want to do that? Other than not having a clue how to start it sounds very interesting to me. I will check out your website too. By the way thanks, it sounded like you were giving me a compliment.~smile~

Good Morning to you too, Granny Smith!
Everybody is up and at em early this morning... Granny I see you are very comfortable making posts/comments on all types of subjects... you seem like a very interesting individual. But even if he was talking to someone else (~blushing~)(~smile~), it still applies to you as well.

That is not the reason. You're ISP location that shows up is the location of the servers out of which you are linked with you ISP. That's also why some people's "location" can change as the server to which they are routed can change, even if they are using the same internet service provider.

No problem. Just ignore the adornments. I have a stalker that spend a considerable amount of time decorating my posts. I get satisfaction knowing that someone is spending this much time on me and others like me with their little obsession.

That is funny, but sad at the same time... people need to get a life.

It is funny too that you mention the adornments, because after someone marked yours negatively, I felt compelled to mark it myself, as it was helpful to me. How did you know I did not put that there? Because you have experience, you have been doing this a long time...

Hello all,
I am creating this post to hopefully get some advice or direction on what I am doing wrong...
For quite awhile now I have been a stay at home mom. My husband is active duty army and so even before the children we have moved around quite a bit.
I am currently back here in my hometown while he is deployed again for the 3rd time. A job would not only help us financially but I know it would help me with the lull of him being gone.
I feel like I have a lot to offer but am not being given a chance. I have applied for various jobs in the area that I know I am qualified for and would be a great fit but no one is biting.
Any suggestions?
Try volunteering. Many times it can lead to a paid position. Good Luck:-)

Do you have any skill in the health care industry? If the health care bill continues to pass there will be many new jobs available in order to handle hundreds of thousands of people who will now go the see the doc that did not go before. My other suggestion is to vote against the republicans.

You are clueless aren't you..... well one thing is for sure...if they go out and get a JOB with the government for the healthcare bill they won't have to actually HAVE the government's healthcare. Ironic isn't it! Have you figured that one out yet? Are you following me? Yes, NONE - NOT ONE government employee current or past will have this 'wonderful government healthcare insurance'. Please oh wise one...tell me why that is?????

Good luck finding a job... I agree with the people who have said freelancing (if you're the creative type) or working at a temp agency. It's the best way to get people to notice your skills.

Wal-Mart, Target, Meijer, McDonald's, Burger King... a lot of these places have difficulty keeping good part-time workers. They would all be good places to start or just to get back in the workplace and have a foot in the door.

roflmao....of course I do....he and too many thousands of others don't get it either..... But it's funny...because it really is such a SIMPLE thing to see - because if it's such a darn good idea...then the ENTIRE Government should be the FIRST to be on it - period - end of story!!!! Thanks for the laugh.=)
