To Ere is Only Human...I Suppose...

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 16 July 2009

Sorry friends! I forgot an important part of the recipe and can only claim mind fugue with the extent of everything going on right now. Very busy time for me.
I forgot to add 1 can of diced tomatoes to the recipe. How could one forget tomatoes! I realized it when I was thinking about Tomato Porridge.  ( ) Tomatoes are essential for this gumbo. I have revised the post below. I hope you didn't all run out and buy the ingredients yet.

So what is going on that I have the mental capacity of an 90 year old with some timers? I am trying to utilize a government incentive for people who have been laid off to go back to school for training. They only allow this if it will further the skills you already have or can prove to them that the skills you have are either not going to get you hired or that you can no longer physically do that line of work. I am going for both!
1)You have to find the course you want to take. Apply to the different colleges that host that program and get accepted into the program.
2) List all the jobs you have applied for and been turned down. (We are not hiring just now, but if you want to try again in six months we may be taking applications then))
3) Prove why you need a change of career.( Because I am way to old to play anymore, being as past jobs have left me with a really bad back and there is no future in my past line of business)
4) Meet with career counselors and college intake persons. This means a lot of traveling.  Also a lot of time spent on the computer.

I am still dealing with the specialists and going to appt's with them as well. Of course the specialists are miles away so they take a full day for one appt.
In a nutshell, swamped!
So please forgive my error and try the recipe with the tomatoes. You will love it!

  1. Good luck in getting into the course
    you want. It sounds a lengthy process but a good idea and will keep that 90 year brain of yours ticking over.
