Looking good as usual Tony. I really like the stove/oven and may have to think about using one.

Underemployment at 21.5% for Michigan in '09

BY CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama said in his State of the Union address on Wednesday that "one in 10 Americans still cannot find work." But in nine states, the figure is closer to one in five, according to Labor Department data released Friday.
The quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten, so build your teardrop with the best materials...

When our president gave his state of the union speech, this week, he said that putting Americans back to work was the #1 priority this year. So, let's hope you find another job just before the money runs too low. Meanwhile, your teardrop is looking mighty fine; it's almost done; and you're going to have extra time to work on it!

(By the way, you might be able to use your build journal address or just some of your pictures, etc. as a spring board to your next job. Things like that demonstrate that you are intelligent and hardworking. The pictures make the interviewer sit up and take notice and set you apart from the crowd. I once landed a job, hands down and overnight, by including my gardening/landscaping experience with pictures of some of the yards included in the application cover letter.)

Hey, that's better than the alternative! I'm really glad to see companies doing this where they can. Reminds my of my Grandpa telling me about Santa Fe in the Depression. They had crews that worked 3 days one week and 2 the next, but very few people were laid-off entirely.

Just caught up with your build after having missed it for the past several months. Things are looking great!

Oh, good, Tony! That is definitely a relief to know. I once worked for a company where my manager had actually been working during the depression. (...dating myself.) He told me that what that company did then was cut everyone's salary (He didn't say how much.) so that nobody had to be laid off. Everyone at that company had a job and an income through the entire depression. I doubt that would work in this 'one-for-one-&-none-for-all ' age, today! Your company probably did the best thing it could. I hope you had advance warning so you could prepare a little.

Make good use of your "free" time. We expect to see :pictures: :EXP

While that sounds really good compared to the alternative, few of us could make it without pay for 2, 3 or 6 weeks. I pray you are able to find ways to make a little extra to span the time!
God Bless

Tony,

I'm sorry to hear about your work situation. I try to be "glass half full" person and think a better economy will return.

I know where I work, they considered both furloughs and/or 10% pay decrease going into this year. So far, things have stayed the same.

Take care,
Tom

There is a difference between this economic disaster and the Great Depression: The majority of the credit system was developed at the end of the depression, to help the economy. Back then, most people owned their homes outright. Today, many people are just one paycheck away from not being able to make their house payment. We have some smart people on Capitol Hill. Let's hope they can pull us out of this.
