I'm glad you responded Jenny, because you're right on all fronts. I never updated what I'm doing now, which I'll do soon. Briefly, the shit got worse and then one day I responded to a job (mind you - i'm sending resumes like crazy) and after a few interviews ... new job (and damn near perfect for what i do). Trust me, shit was bleak. Like you said, only for the desperate. I will continue this series and talk on labor and all that. Shit is bad out here.
