I'm Back

Hadn't planned on being away this long. Attended a class reunion, which I did most of the planning. It went very well and we are going to do it again in two years.

I'm still unemployed. I guess I hadn't yet met the interviewer and/or HR professional who knows when he sees talent in a good looking middle aged person. Either that or they can't afford to pay me what I'm worth.

Good news is that next Thursday is the first band show of the season. this year I will be featuring video as well as stills on my "From the Pressbox" posts.

Hopefully I won't be such a stranger to my own blog.

MY One year anniversary of being unemployed.....and I'm a couple of years younger than you. I told people years ago that when NAFTA was passed it would be the death knell for the American worker and I was poo-pooed as be a "negative nelly". Who's laughing [or actually crying] now?

Only Americans NAFTA helped were the business owners.

Some people at the company I was formerly employed at wondered at the time whether alot of our work would go to Mexico. Indirectly, many of the jobs went to China.

Well, I hope you find employment soon. I'm sure something great is coming your way....but I'm excited at the thought of marching band season starting!! (I miss being a band mom).

AIEEEEE! Do something about your "visitor count" thingie to the right. Everytime I look at it, I think my eyesight has gotten even worse. It looks like I'm looking at a 3-D movie without the glasses. It's all blurry! {At least to me}

Other than that, I do like the redesign of the page.

Good to hear from you after some absence. As Sis says, that job will come along sooner or later, and I'm voting for sooner.

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings. Optional pliers – Wire-looping pliers which have several graduated circumferences to allow you to form perfectly uniform jump rings and loops in place of the pandora discount uk round-nose pliers mentioned above. Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers. As for materials, I recommend some assortment packs of beads in coordinating colors, some decorative metal spacers, seed beads in both silver and gold These can serve as spacers and beautifully set off pandora sale your other beads., tube-shaped crimp beads Buy the best you can find – these are what hold it all together!, head and eye pins. Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
