    So! At the end of March I lost my full-time job.  That was no fun.  But, since March, with no new hubs published in quite some time, I'm glad to report that for the last three months I have made Adsense payout each month!  This is a big thing for me, both because I haven't been publishing, and also because that extra money is helping me out in my time of need.

    I've fallen slack on the HubGreeter side, and for that I do apologize to all the newbies I've missed out on helping, but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of the Hubbing and the Greeting soon as life stops throwing me curve-balls.

    To top it all off, GamerGent lost his job today.  How someone who worked as hard as four people with more efficiency than everyone else in similar positions to him could be fired by anyone with two brain cells in their head is beyond me, but it happened, so now I get to add THAT to the list of things to deal with.  Whee! Where's my winning lotto ticket?

    Sorry to hear about the unemployment issues.  It is good that you have been making AdSense payment each month, though.  Hang in there.

    It often seems the best people are the ones to be shown the door, go figure???  Maybe they are too honest for today's business world.

    Hang in.  I'll send you good thoughts, good wishes.  I'll just hope it helps.

    WHEW! I was confuzzled!

    I'm glad to be back in action.  Kinda lost my mojo there for a lil while, but slowly getting back in the act. 

    Oh, and I'll be in you guys' neck of the woods next year sometime.. consider yourselves warned! tongue

      YES!  Don't disappoint me now, you've got my hopes up.

      Edit: BTW, my partner is an architect, and was out of work for 11 months... until my birthday this July.  It's hard, but it's doable.  And it is no reflection on GamerGent.  Just keep reminding him that.  Things are tough all over.

    I'd be out there faster if you guys were hiring. ;-)

    I'll let him know, too.  He's like I was - flip flopping between being angry about being fired for BS reasons, and glad to be out of the special little hell he was in.
