"We've been hurting one another & now the pain has cut too deep" __ Annie Lennox __ 'Walking On Broken Glass'


Life IS mostly good, but am I the only 1 nerve-wracked?

I'm contemplating whether or not to appeal the disability denial; need to receive more of my medical records & speak with a lawyer...ugh.

I have time for a road trip, but no $$. [Best road trip moments begin when you say "hello"...!]

A couple weeks ago, we had flooding rains 1 day; accumulating snow the next.

Bombing at the Boston Marathon; explosions in TX & OK.

A friend of 20+ years wrote me a scathing note about how bad of a friend/person I am.... Yet, someone I recently met, knowing my affinity towards older cars, suggested I start a niche business. I've contemplated that before (or some sort of road tripping or radio-related endeavor), but not sure ... so many ideas & possibilities with not enough starting $$.



My future looks bleak, but sometimes determination (or something else...) kicks in. But, I need help:

I'm still job-hunting; need 1 with health insurance for obvious reasons. COBRA runs out in ~2 months.

Do you need help social media managing, organizing, reviewing, or researching ... something to get me out of the house a bit? We could barter....

Anyone interested in getting together? Maybe lunch, dinner or both. Maybe with cars, but definitely good company & conversation.

Someone to detail my 1979 Caprice Classic. I need to find energy to detail my 1989 Caprice Classic myself, since I haven't even washed it yet! [The '79 & '81 MCs were detailed with a friend's help last year & probably will not be out in 2013, in an attempt to TRY to keep them.]

& ... something that will NOT take YOUR $$ ... if on facebook, "like" my page, OLD CARS, STRONG HEARTS ... please.

FWIW, my brother does a lot of work with the disabled and the homeless, and he tells me disability claims are almost universally denied the first time. You pretty much have to appeal. Apparently it operates on the squeaky wheel principle.

It is a waste of time to stretch it out but on the plus side when aproved ya get a lump sum for the back pay. But the wait ain't always worth it

I have clients in about half the states, and it amuses me (in a morbid kind of way) that I hear the same statement from every one I visit:

"The only thing more f***ed up than the federal government is the state of <insert your state here>."

And if it helps, NY is known locally as "The Vampire State". Smile

Yes....... I KNOW ... HAVE to appeal. BUT, ugh.

And, yes, I am in the process ... waiting for the records from my 11/11/2011 open heart surgery to arrive. I have the records from my previous 3 surgeries already. So, once the additional ones arrive, I will contact a lawyer. Still don't think I should be appealing it, though.

Meantime ... I'm just done with this life. Sad

Cort, I don't know your whole story and wish I could provide more physical help to you. The best thing that I know you can do in times like this, when all seems to be going in the wrong direction, is pray. I am not sure what your faith is, but I believe that God can do anything and if you pray about a need he will take care of it. If you are looking for some positive information, check out the web page I am working on. There should be no add on the page, but if there is just click out of it. It should be removed today.

I am praying for you!
