And then.....!!! And then....!! Yesterday, speaking to my ex husband he informed me that his girlfriend was just laid off as well!!!!!!!! She works in the city, too, in the film business. Her position was more about procuring/selling equipment to people who had film projects. So, we commiserated a bit on the phone yesterday, pumping each other up, and have definite plans to drink together next week.

So, no one is making movies and no one is going to eat.

I like the idea of teaching. When I was in college back in the stone age I was majoring in english education.

Vera, better days are approaching, I'm sure. Why does Lou need to take the bar in New Orleans - they have several already

I think in this day and age, with people needing/wanting to cook at home more, a few cooking lessons are in order. There still has to be an upper echelon group that could benefit from a meal or two from a personal chef type service. You are certainly used to carrying your tools of the trade with you already.

I can see your book now - The Ups and Downs of Cooking at the Stock Exchange
"... A Life of Cooking Bear or Bull"

Hey VB-personally, I can't imagine why anyone would want a "real" job-to each his/her own I guess!! I don't think your giving daytime TV a fair shake!! You do realize that Jerry Springer is back on the air don't you? If you ever decide to become a burden on society, PM me and I'll set you up with TV schedules for every day of the week! FWIW, without a job to bog you down, every hour is happy hour, and every day is Friday!

IMO, your writing skills are off the chart! I'm guessing that your grocery list is an interesting read!!

Do the world a solid and publish something !!

I'm sorry to hear about your job Vera. You need to start your own business, whether it be a personal chef, caterer, teacher, writer or you could even do what I'm doing and build informational websites. Your writing skills are impeccable and your knowledge is amazing...you could really go far! As long as you work for someone else though, there is always going to be someone else in control of your destiny. Good luck to you whatever you decide to do!
