Well, instead of continuously wondering and wasting time on problems, how about focusing attention on plausible solutions.  Don’t have a job, how about volunteering an hour a day at a charity you believe in.  My sister-in-law an unemployed engineer, volunteered time at a well-known college hospital in her state; while helping she created an advanced report that streamlined record keeping.  Well, the head of the Volunteer Services was so impressed; she offered her a paying job. Although it is an entry-level job, plans are in the works to move her to a position worthy of her education, skills, and leadership ability.  The great thing about this is her personal desire is to move into the field of nutrition and was planning to register for a class at the college….now she works there!  Can you say BENEFITS; she is clearly on her way now.  Can you think of something you can do today instead of wasting time worrying?

Hello Politicians

Congressional Democrats and Republicans were elected to represent their constituents, not pander to the far left or right-wing of their Party. According to a Gallup Poll, “55% to 39%, Americans say the President and Congress should now suspend work on the healthcare bill and consider alternatives rather than trying to pass the current version.” Check it out: http://www.gallup.com/tag/healthcare.aspx. Instead of pushing a desire to control everyone’s healthcare, perhaps the majority party should consider going back to the original premise….which was to lower the cost of healthcare and make it possible for anyone who wants coverage to buy it… just a thought.

Wow, I am blogging!!!!  Now, what should I say???  This is a unique time in my life; I’m too old for foolish but too young for confinement to a home.  Realizing my path and documenting my movement is an awesome task.  I love the technology that allows me to publish my thoughts; it is a way to say…Hey, I’m here!
