21. Cleita, check this out

I heard this interesting program tonight on "On Point." It's an avenue for odd jobs and also to sell things.

I hope you listen to the program. They had a number of experts on the show that I thought had good comments. There are some articles listed below at the web site that you might also want to read.

There are at least three sites to check out. Zaarly looked like the most interesting one to me.

I think it's sickening that your employer let you go over $2 an hour! I think he will be sorry. He will have to train, and that's an expense he'll have to recoup right there. In a friendly way, maybe you can say that if things don't work out for him, he is welcome to recontact you.

I would go see all the other docs in town and do it right away, too.

Don't let the age thing get you down. In my circle of friends in the last year:

--1 65-year old attained a high-level national management job
--1 62-year old attained a $350 a day consulting job on an indefinite basis
--1 56-year old opened a creative business where she restores and sells furniture out of a workshop in her home. Business is booming and she's having a ball meeting new people.
1 62-year old attained a regular, f-t job in a school of dentistry, where she places students in residencies

Keep us posted. You might be surprised at what comes up.

Also, I agree with Blue Iris, above. I think this is a time for employment falling by the wayside for reasons that are not so substantial.
