Hi Tollbee sorry I took so long to answer, but yes the police are still called Hedll. But the term is not used much here and we do actaully call them the police, among other things I dare not repeat lol
Well, I did find another job... actually, it kind of found me. Okay here is the story. I joined a company many moons ago... it split in two... and both halves each became a 'company'. I went with the left half. The left half went through many name changes, but it was more stable than the right half (many changes mostly involving random lay-offs and pay cuts). I felt pretty good about my decision. And over the years with the Left half I got raises and was trained in some things but not in electronic processes...even though I begged to be and all was okay. Then 6 Sigma came along and convinced people they didn't need half of their staff. The half that included non-electronic process person-me (insert long story about not being trained like I wanted and a boss that never hired me, but 'inherited' me story here) and I got laid off, with 13weeks severance (one for each year I worked there). Sad and put out about it, I had trouble bringing myself to start looking for a job and apparently the 'right half' of the company heard about the lay-offs and seven weeks after the lay-off they called me "You want a job?" 'helz YAH!' ... two stipulations: 1) I had to join a temp service (meaning NO benefits), 2) 30% pay cut.... 'but it's a job, doing what you were doing when you started with the WHOLE company 13 years ago, just with different material.' Me: "I'LL TAKE IT!" (have I told you how much I hate job hunting?) So now I work for the "right half" which at some point had been bought by company "C"... 6 weeks after I am brought on as a temp... Company "C" shuts down the plant and everyone is out of a job! AGAIN. I totally panic. What job hunting I had done had resulted in a RESOUNDING SILENCE from all to whom I applied. 6 weeks later the head of the 'right half' becomes 'ceo' and starts the 'right half' up again under a new name. I still get laid off periodically, but they are training me in different areas so that should happen less often... so money is still a LARGE issue for me.
YES!! Pentatonix is my favorite! I am a die hard Pentaholic! :) I found them here when someone posted Evolution of Music. I thought "I Have to watch that... but it is too long right now... I will later." (keep in mind this is usually a 'death knell' for a video for me. I COMPLETELY forget about a video if I don't watch it right THEN.) A week later I thought... I should watch that video... by the time I found it again ... no time to watch (I was at work). This happened a few times... then I got 'down-sized' and found my self at home web crawling and filling out online applications and one evening after a particularly unproductive day, I thought..."HEY! I have time to watch that video!" (How I remembered, I don't know... it was probably Avi's face that kept bringing me back. It took me hours to find it in the back log of lols I had favorited etc. but I FOUND it, watched it and became addicted to them at the first "Salve"... oh Avi! :D
I went YEARS without need of a connection at home and I had one for a few years and then I found a reason to spend all my time on line and then life got crappy and I lost it and I can't afford to get it back,
