Mebbe if Rainbow down there would get her a "MAN", she would not be hurting to save her place. Ahem, I have aol, too. She prefers the fairer s*x. I know my husband takes GOOD care of me. I don't want for a thing. Says she is a self employed farmer????? I shouldn't be mean, I don't know her story, she may have had a bad man in her life, but thats no reason to stop looking. My mom is disabled, and they didn't give social security to her either. She went out, and teaches Feng Shue at the local college. She has very inventive ideas she is putting into motion. You have to make do. You have to cut back. You have to take a good look at what you NEED. Have a yard sale. Clay had some good ideas. How about a room mate? What happens if we all did send money, what about the next month, and the next month?

lack of finiancial reponsibilty is saturating our society. WE WORK HARDER TO GET MONEY WE CAN'T MANAGE, TO BUY THINGS WE DON'T NEED, TO IMPRESS PEOPLE WE DON'T KNOW. All in the name of want and acceptance in materialism. I do not know how disabled she is( and god help any of us who are) but walmart hires greaters all the time. Instead of asking for sound advice she instantly turned her head to money. hmmmm maybe thats her problem. Turn off the internet, drive a cheapo car, cancel the cable, above all watch your daily purchases they add up. Shop at Goodwill instead name stores. Pinch ever penny. My wife and myself are 35/31 and we have 2 homes paid for-not by chance but by design. my decision was to pay off the mortgage first. Many sound reasons for this, but the most being that as of now nobody will put us out-unless we cannot pay the property taxes. Sacrifice is a word that has evolved out of our money/personal managemment terms. Yes we have a new house that is paid for(not bragging-reminds me of the apostle Paul in phillipians 4:11-15)along with other stuff yet I must give God the glory. I drive a 12 year old vehicle with 200000 miles on it, do not own a DVD, canceled cable, hardly ever buy any clothes, eat out sporatically, etc. The idea is that we are not necessarily granted anything and when we are we must be good stewards of what we have. Nobody in todays society is willing to wait for anything its all about immediate self gratification. Show me the money. I stated below about my renters a prime example of todays management style. In most cases like these money or lack of is not the problem it is a symptom of a bigger issue. One must put their house in order-fiancially, spiritually, mentality, etc.

if you have AOL there is a "profile" somewhere that can be accessed by other AOL members? Is this what Juliana meant by profile down there?

I used to be on AOL. Yes, you can choose to have a profile if you like, and other AOL members can click on your SN (screen name, which is the same as your email addy without the "@aol" part) and read your profile. Most of us aren't on AOL, so we couldn't access the profile. But I'm sure glad to hear what it's like! By the way, I thought most of our suggestions to her were legitimate. I guess she didn't care for our kind of advice. When Cliff and I were hurting finanacially, one thing we always told ourselves: "The worst that can happen is we lose our place." You see, in the vast scheme of things, losing a piece of property is not a disaster. I've seen people forced to take bankruptcy, lose everything... and ten years later they're happy as larks and doing better than ever. If you have your health and the love of your friends and family, you are rich. Land, cars, tractors... all of that is just "stuff".
