Thanksgiving Again

Seems like a lot of my problems started last year on Thanksgiving morning as I was driving in to work and now here we are again. Still, I find myself with much to be thankful for these past twelve months, not the least of which is my little slice of the blogosphere here.

Through this blog, we were able to get our dog healthy again, find movies I've always wanted to see and comics I've always wanted to read, keep hope alive when things looked really bad, help make real progress in a real murder investigation and make enjoyable new friends (including the ubiquitous Lisa who designed the lovely pic adorning this post! Thanks much!).

Things are never static and there are still problems and issues but overall, in spite of a most challenging year, I wanted to say thanks to ALL of you who drop by here on a semi-regular basis (and yes, even those of you just looking for Linda Blair naked, too!). Looking back over this past year's posts, I'm pretty proud. A good bit of interesting stuff for pop-oriented people! I hope you liked it 'cause there's more ahead!

    "ubiquitous"? is that contagious?

    Hello Steve
    I am glad things are better for you now.
    wish I could say the same.

    the company I worked for declined to renew the contract at the dept. of state job I was working; they had no other position for me.

    After applying for many jobs claiming I had an active TS/SCI clearance I found out 2 weeks ago that the SCI part of my clearance was not properly renewed in early 2007. So, I only have TS now.

    The downside of that is that I applied to many jobs I was qualified for clearance-wise and wasted time because I couldn't understand why these employers couldn't verify my clearance.

    (My pentagon job used the TS/SCI; the new job I got in July 2007 only used the TS, BUT the I thought the SCI was still viable and I claimed I had it)

    The downside is that I've been out of work for over 2 months and I'm soon to be 3 months behind on my mortgage.
    My wife is disabled and I now have no health insurance.

    Happy Thanksgiving.
