I was just about ready to put my sign up anywhere I could to get a decent paying job, no matter where it might be
(except maybe Iraq or Afganistan)then my wife says she needs me here to help with the grandkids shocked I was feeling like a pioneer in search of work(just got through reading the books " Little House on The Prarie" smile Well looks like I'll have to hang around and keep pressing the battle. Thought about going into pressure washing driveways, but still I would have to invest about
$1000.00 probably for a good pressure washer. Already got quiet a bit invested in electrical advertisement and taxes..Of course I can't really see my tax investment as a good investment. Oh well maybe uncle sam will have a change of heart crazy
Well Sorry guys, I guess someone just missed out on a good worker. I always do my best and try to do it quick as possible to save money on the job, but I do love my grandkids.
I hope you see some humor in this, it beats crying cry

Without getting political...a NJ School Superintendent...better side of $200K for most. Or Police Chief? I'm quite sure you guys hear some of the NJ 'dirt' with bene's, buy-outs, golden parachutes, etc.

Hang in there guy, if you can. It's got to get better.
