    I am still working on this. I will let you know.

    Opinions are encouraged as to what I should do.

      You should find another blue swirly thing to settle down with and have lots of little blue swirly things.

      Then you should all try to be the best blue swirly things you can be until you cease being blue swirly things.

      *nodsnods* That's what I would do if I were you.

    The Dalai Lama walks into Pizzahut. Waiter asks "what can I get you?". The Dalai Lama replies "Make me one with everything".

    135 days estimate seems about right. 4 and one-half months. Until death. Homeless crap is just flat out not an option. Period.

          Here is a list of 100 writing sites. There's the usual rev share and demand types sites, but as you scroll down you'll see the higher paying jobs (especially for techy or instructional writers) Also higher paying blogging jobs. It gives information on frequency of payments and how to apply. There's a few I would definitely apply to, however, I'm not a US citizen so I can't. This might be a good place to begin. I hope this helps you Para.

      Thank you, Pearldiver. All of my life problems are pretty much the same as everyone elses. And like with most everyone else, money will solve most of them quite nicely. And therein is the problem. No money means no food, no shelter, no medical, etc. I am busily trying to find a solution to this problem as we speak. And I still have a little time left.

          I have a cunning plan for you.

          Borrow a stethoscope; put the earpieces in; and place the business end against various parts of your head. See if you can hear the demons talking. If so, go find your toolbox; pull out your spirit level; then beat yourself over the head with it. That should sort them out. wink

    Good morning America how are you?
    Don't you know me I'm your native son,
    I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans,
    I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.

    Riding on the City of New Orleans,
    Illinois Central Monday morning rail
    Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders,
    Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail.
    All along the southbound odyssey
    The train pulls out at Kankakee
    Rolls along past houses, farms and fields.
    Passin' trains that have no names,
    Freight yards full of old black men
    And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles.

    Good morning America how are you?
    Don't you know me I'm your native son,
    I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans,
    I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.

    Dealin' card games with the old men in the club car.
    Penny a point ain't no one keepin' score.
    Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
    Feel the wheels rumblin' 'neath the floor.
    And the sons of pullman porters
    And the sons of engineers
    Ride their father's magic carpets made of steel.
    Mothers with their babes asleep,
    Are rockin' to the gentle beat
    And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel.

    Good morning America how are you?
    Don't you know me I'm your native son,
    I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans,
    I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.

    Nighttime on The City of New Orleans,
    Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee.
    Half way home, we'll be there by morning
    Through the Mississippi darkness
    Rolling down to the sea.
    And all the towns and people seem
    To fade into a bad dream
    And the steel rails still ain't heard the news.
    The conductor sings his song again,
    The passengers will please refrain
    This train's got the disappearing railroad blues.

    Good night, America, how are you?
    Don't you know me I'm your native son,
    I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans,
    I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.
