Working on a Labor Market Research for my College Application.....its interesting to see that despite the economic woes in on this contenent, there are pockets that are doing quite well. The area I live in has been, for the most part, not as well off as the rest of the province. But, recently the area has been growing due to the fact that the military base here has been deemed as a Superbase and many other smaller operations are being tranfered here, so it is growing and so is the economic outlook of the region. We also have a large Nuclear Research facilty which employs thousands of people on the edge of a town of only a few thousand. So, there is a serious appetite for well trained and educated people. They are always hiring.....good jobs too.

I agree with you, I hate going through all that malarkey with the car salesmen.

I will probably buy a new one and then drive it into the dust. That has been my pattern in the past. Tomorrow morning I go to meet with my new best friend at the dealership! I am sure he will take real good care of me.

I would rather sweep the floor!

I have a pile started for the tax man but every year I have to wait until the middle of March to get started. Some kind of trust certification from a mutual fund company. That gets just as confusing as buying a car. I guess I need to get some peeps, minders and enablers to look after me!

I'm relaxing with a cup of camomile tea and catching up on DC posts.
