Well guys, I have had a blast on CakeCentral.com, but I have to give up my internet. Financial difficulties have not gotten any better for me, so I have to cut costs somewhere. I have already given up the cable and telephone, so there is only one place left that I can tighten my belt. I would like to say that it has been a great pleasure to have had such wonderful and giving teachers icon_cry.gif . I would never have been able to learn the things that I have learned without you all. I will try to check in via the library or from my daughter/son-in-laws internet when possible. Although I have only been a member for about a year, it seems like I know some of your personalities very well. And I WILL TRULY MISS YOU. When I first came on this site I laughed when I saw the "Warning this website is highly addictive". If I had only known how true that statement was. God Bless and Happy Caking! BTW...I still have till August 17, so I am sure I will be back on again between now and then icon_rolleyes.gif

Sorry to hear things are not going well. Hopefully you'll see a quick turn around and come back to us soon!

Thanks for the kind comments. I have been trying to keep positive. I guess I could have explained the circumstances a little. You see...my husband is 55 years old and was laid off from his job of 17 years about 3 years ago. He has been having difficulty finding work because of his age. No one wants to hire someone that close to retirement age. His great work history (one job 19 years and the 17 years) makes no difference. They do not even try to hide the fact that they are not hiring him because of his age. One guy told him he was to old for the job...my husband told him that was illegal. The guy said if he could afford to sue him, he didn't need the job anyway. When he goes for interviews...he says they take look one look at him and he can tell by the way they act he isn't going to get the job. I feel bad for him and try to encourage him, but as time and many interviews pass he gets more discouraged. Oh well...you tighten the belt...grab the rope...and hang on tight...and pray for the best. God Bless You All.

Cabecakes-


Hang on. Please keep in touch with the cc forum when you have access to the internet.

I will keep positive thoughts for your husband.

My SIL is 39 and can't find a job. He has a rare form of arthritis and can't do anything real physical. He was recently hired for an administrative job and they had him up on an apartment roof climbing over the fire wall. He could barely walk when he got home. I am so sorry for everyone who is so willing to work that can't find someone who recognizes their skills. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope things turn around real soon.

Have you tried free internet services, such as Netzero? You only get 10 hours a month for free, but it's better than nothing.

So sad that you are in this situation - unbelievable isn't it, that you and i both live in what is commonly reffered to as *the lucky Countries* yet, i sit and read your post and think - How can this be, in this day and age?
When through no fault of your own - you find yourself in this situation.

From across the oceans and many more miles after that - i do so hope that things turn around for you and your family.

Secret_Agent_Cake_Baker thank you so much for the post, but I had to give up my home telephone too. I do have my cell, because I have a daughter in college 3 hours away. I thought the cell would be cheaper then long distance (we have limited plan with free mobile to mobile and nights and weekends). I appreciate your post though. I guess I will just have to visit the library on occasion to check in. I'm just not sure if our local library will allow us to use a flash drive to upload to the internet or not. I know they have some restrictions on downloading.

CC will really miss you, and your up-beat attitude. You are always so quick to offer an encouraging word - seems doubly unfair that you're going through these troubles. icon_sad.gif

I sincerely hope that things turn around very quickly for you and your family.

If there is any way for you to go to the library and come back we'd love it. You are a real asset and a blessing to the community. Please don't go!!
