Turn, Turn, Turn...

I'm sure most bloggers are up on the news of the day in the blogging world so I won't waste time using that for an excuse.
Anyhow the real reason I've decided to pull the plug on the blog now is not so much because of external sources as it is because of my personal situation these days. I've recently lost my job thanks to the ongoing collapse of the American auto industry and living in Michigan, probably the worst hit state in the union, it's a mess that I fear could go on for awhile.
With that in mind, as of now the request lines are closed kids. I need to concentate what energy I do have on trying to hold on to what I have......I'm sure no one's going to miss one little blog so I don't mean to make a big deal out of closing. I hope you'll understand. I've got other things right now I need to put my efforts towards. Losing a job is bad enough, I'd rather not lose everything else too......these are real rough times for a lot of folks.
Can't think of anything else to say so I'll just say take care and thanks for the correspondence.

Tom, thanks for sharing your obvious love for the music. My prayers go out for your job situation, and I encourage you to lean into your family and friends. Your current situation is not the final word on the matter.

Thanks for all of the work you put into this blog.

Sorry to hear about the unemployment situation.

I've (barely) managed to hang on to my Michigan auto industry job up to this point, but I know it's only a matter of time until I'm out on the dole, too.

Maybe all of us middle-aged unemployed guys should form bands and play the Lake Michigan bar circuit for a little extra cash.

Living next door to you in Ontario, i know exactly what you are talking about. The auto industry and steel industry has been hit hard here to. Thanks for adding all the Ian Thomas albums they are really rare. Good luck to you, hope things get better and this recession/depression or whatever they want to call it, ends this year!.

Very, very sorry to hear of your situation. I lost my job as a graphic designer at an ad agency May 8. My prayer for you is that this difficult situation brings more than just a new job, which will certainly come, but also a deeper peace that comes with understanding that our jobs are not who we truly are. Thanks much for the music, and hang in there.

I was a freguent visitor to your blog in the early days, then lapsed. So sorry to pick up this news now - perhaps since your first announcement things have improved? Sorry to see the 'investment' vultures swooping in the last two posts. When someone is down they come scavaging in a rush.
