I'm sorry for your family, Jeff. That is a terrible thing. I just had a phone conversation with my brother about the business we've operated together for years. It can't support both of us anymore, so he's going to let me run it alone. It's a weird feeling.

This economy has really put a lot of folks in a weird place. I believe in change but when one life crosses over another the consequences for sudden change become serious. My sister had responsibility for healthcare/benefits for the affected company and she has knowledge of many, many folks with tough situations they were dealing with...and now this.

It goes far beyond businesses having a tough time. It affects lives.

We can't be careful enough and folks need to be true to their families. Never have I seen a time in my life where family was more important.

That's terrible...I am really sorry to hear this. I hope and pray that things will work out for them both. I seen on CNN last night that UPS is laying off 1800 workers.

My prayers go out to all of those affected. It is a tough time right now and I have had several of the accounts that I call on close. My company has lost several of it's larger clients and I think we may lose another one at the end of our next cycle. That has led them to cut down the amount they pay us for mileage and we only get about a third of the amount of time in a store that we use to. I use to get about thirty hours of overtime every five weeks and now I barely get 35 hours a week with twice as many stores.

Well Simon has offically announced that he will not be back on American Idol next year. Fox is going to carry his new show that he is bringing over from england though. It will be interesting to see if there is going to be a idol without Simon.

Well I am off to go get my little Raisin Rain. His surgery went well. I'm sure he wants his mommy (me) by now!
