40° F | 20° F It will still be cool today but then we will have three days in the fifties. I’m getting tired of cold.
TOTD: We have people on the site looking for work maybe we can help them out with some ideas. The unemployment rate is at a 26-year high. What's the longest stretch you've gone unemployed? How did you eventually find work?

I just finished working 8 days in a row and will be enjoying a day off in the 70's.
TOTD: The most time I have even been off work is due to injury. Even during high unenployment levels, I usually don't have a problem finding or keeping a job. I keep an open mind and will do what ever it takes. I don't mind starting at the bottom.

I talked to a guy the other day who is self-employed. Right now he has no work and described himself as self-unemployed.Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

It's going to be in the low 40s today but at least we didn't get big snow over the last couple of days. There will be time enough for that in next few months.
TOTD: I started paycheck work pretty young. I think the longest I've ever been unemployed (against my will) has been about 5 or 6 weeks. Now, not every job has been any kind of "dream" job - I'd take whatever came up when I needed to.
Temp agencies are always a pretty good bet if you have any administrative skills and know your way around the most popular kinds of software. There is usually temp work available outside if you have a truck. Yuppies are always willing to employ a native English speaker to do house cleaning. The census is hiring right now. :)

Supposed to be a sunny day for the Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans. Temp. in the high 50's. Fat Tuesday is a big event in south LA. I have been to many of them; many years ago they used to roll down Bourbon Street. One hell of a sight if you have never been to one.

I've had the windows open all day & have been really lazy.
I had physical therapy on my back & neck today and it wore me out!
Looks like it was 80 degrees in BadCat country today...wow. It was 73 here.

It's still freezing here. :mad:
TOTD: A couple of months maybe? I don't really have any advice. I just spent my days constantly looking.Loyalty Binds Me- Motto of Richard III
