Funny, they didn't mention this on Tuesday.

Here's a depressing article on the rapid demise of my company.

Oh so sad, and we will surely hear more news from our other cyber friends around the world. Pres Elect Obama has quite a mess on his hands to sort out. PS I love the picture of you on the couch! Very funny!

Sorry to hear about your job worries - and that you might lose your job. Glad to hear that you will manage anyway!

Ina, What makes me worry for President Obama is him not being able to turn this mess around as quickly as people think he should be able to. He has so much pressure already simply by being the first black man elected to that office. This country is going to hell in a handbasket as they say. It's not going to be turned around in a year. Probably not in 4 years!

My friend Leah and I moved my old sofa out on to the curb and I couldn't resist taking photos. We have one of her as well.

Thanks, Fi. xoxo

Yikes! I am so sorry, Meg. Maybe you can work for Kodak? Silver lining. :)

Work for Kodak? Oh sweet jesus no! I mean, Kodak isn't a bad company at all. They are in Rochester, NY. If I worked for them, I'd have to live there. If I got laid off by them, I'd be screwed. There's nothing around there. I would much rather get laid off here. We have Cisco, IBM, BASF, Nortel, Fidelity, SAS, all the drug companies, the government agencies like the EPA, NIH, NIEHS, and the list goes on. We have the state and local government. We also have about a dozen very well known universities (Duke, UNC, NCSU, NCCU, Meredith to name a few), so I could go back to school, or even work for them too. Our current unemployment rate is 7.something%, which is the highest it's been in over 20 years. As much as I hate living in North Carolina, this is the place you want to be if you're unemployed. That's my silver lining. Like I said, I'm in a good place.
