    We are so backlogged on educational benefits for daughter trying to start School on the GI Bill.....everything has to be adjudicated.   She counted on the money from going to school. We wait and can't claim her as a dependent.  Can't get a high school job so she volunteers for credits with the DA's office.  Hoping maybe a scholorship is in there.

      My son started his carpet cleaning business back up just to have slashed  prices and then people cancel cleaning jobs due to their layoffs and then eventually the machine broke.  Peopel are hurting for those extras and businesses are renting Rent a Vac to do it.....Habitat came today to pick up something we donated and they said they are getting hardly ANY donations.  The kids are home next door because of Head start going down.. The meals on wheels isn't happening and in Florida that is a big deal.  We have tried to pick up slack on helping some people with going to the store for them till we started feeling the pinch....  Nobody has jobs, money, and the costs keeps going up.  I have no clue where those figures of income and housing in Fl came from because everyone around here has either been foreclosed on, kicked out or laid off.

    have you noticed no one will wait one day on a bill?  They know when fix incomers get paid and forget any illness.  I pay out of pocket and put in claims so sometimes we ask them to wait a day or two like between the1st and 3rd or in my case ss does not come till the mid month.  Crazy.  it is crazy....Veterans cannot visit National Park for down time because they are closed.
