    Gallup’s mid-month reading, which traditionally previews the government report issued at the end of the month, shows a rise of seven-tenths of a percentage from the 8.3 percent unemployment rate at the end of January. That would be the worst unemployment figure since September of last year.

    The survey firm said seasonal factors — including job loss by seasonal workers hired over the holidays — could be responsible for the dip.

    “Regardless of what the government reports, Gallup’s unemployment and underemployment measures show a sharp deterioration in job market conditions since mid-January,” the firm said in a statement accompanying the release of the data.

    Say goodbye to Obama.

    My grandparents were the first generation of our family who didn't have their parents in the same house. Then when my grandfather died, my grandmother lived with us. That's the way it's supposed to be, imo.
    I had to stop and think after reading this post. We had the same situation. My maternal grandmother lived with us when I was a kid. It was just an accepted fact that that was how it should be. When I was about 12 or 13, she had to go into a nursing home due to what today is called Alzheimers.

    On my father's side, my uncle had my grandfather living with them as well. Both grandparents contributed to the families what they could, both monetarily and in other ways.

    I came to Texas as soon as I could
    From my earliest memories, we lived next door to my paternal grandparents and their single daughter lived with them.

    Grandma passed in December and the Doc said that when Grandpa did not wake up one morning in Jan that it nothing more than a broken heart.

    Shortly after that, we moved next door to the maternal grandparents and stayed as Granddad passed and Grandmother ended up in the home. That was well after I left to marry and raise my family.

    Unluckily for both my parents and my wife's, they all passed far too soon for us to have any years back together
