I happen to notice that you are running an ad blocker on your browser.
Well, I believe me, when I tell you, I get it. I hate ads too. But, I have to run them. I am a long term unemployed person. I have not worked for anyone else, since 2005 and really worked a long term job since 2000. It sucks, but it is the truth. In fact, I started blogging in 2006, because I was bored out of my mind!
Basically, what happened was this: I tried a career change that basically blew up in my face. (Truck Driver) Well, thanks to Michigan's economy, the insurance industry and Government Regulation --- I can't really get into a truck again, unless I cough up $5000. Well, needless to say, I do not have that laying around! So, I am stuck doing this. I get Medicaid, and believe me, I use it! I have type 2 diabetes. High Blood Pressure and High cholesterol. Not to mention A.D.H.D. and a mild anxiety and mood disorder! Needless to say, I am a mess. I don't want pity. But, I will tell you the truth. At the moment, I am not collecting any sort of money from the Government. I'd like to avoid it, but sooner or later, I'll have to try to apply for it.
But, in the meantime, could you be so kind as to "White-List" this blog and put up with the ads? It would help my situation greatly! If you really hate the ads, and we ALL do! Could you be so kind as to put a little donation in my tip jar? If the ads coming in from the sides and bottom bug ya, you can click on the X's and they'll retract away. But the one at the top, it can't be closed. But, first... do that thing you do with a mouse on them! :-)
As for the white-listing, It would help me out a good deal. I do not get any sort of money from ANY sort of political organization at all! I wouldn't take it, if they offered!
Anyhow, my thanks for your understanding in this situation!
