    So sorry about that, Tradd.
    I hope that once economy gets better you will find work where you are fully appreciated.

    So sorry you got laid off, Tradd. I can totally relate as I was 16 years - no un-used vacation pay, no severance - nada.

    May I suggest applying for unemployment as soon as possible? The system is definitely flooded in my area and the online process took about 6 hours of repeated page-refreshing.

    Good luck.

    Tradd, I’ll bet things work out for the best. It seams like you weren’t that happy with your workplace, but sometimes it takes a shove to move on.

    Hopefully this will just give you a little break, and you will most likely land a better job.

    And what’s wrong with warm water diving? Hopefully, later in the year I’ll at least get to try a little snorkeling for a start.

    I don't like being hot. Never have. And the hot flashes make it even worse. Plus, warm water doesn't have the awesome shipwrecks we have in the Great Lakes. I'm not into diving for pretty fishies and coral! I've dived wooden wrecks that went down in the 1870s and 1880s. Very intact. You don't find those in salt water.

    I applied at 2am today. I had tried earlier and the website kept timing out on me.

    We do have some dive sights nearby that are of wrecks, but I don’t know how old. And I don’t like the cold, but to each his own I guess. I do like the looks of that clear blue water. Visibility is very good.

    Tradd, have you seen this reference resource? This is up where we live, so we go to all these beaches but we don't dive like you do but it looks really cool:

    Tradd, it looks like everyone on unemployment will get the extra 600/week.
