Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society." Antonio Gramsci - Marxist - teacher of Saul Alinsky

Well it finally happened...I have a JOB!
After much searching and pavement-pounding I have landed what I hope will be a very rewarding and lucrative opportunity.
I answered what looked like a different sort of ad in the Tribune, interveiwed, and accepted a job that I would never have guessed I would ever be doing.
I will be employed by StoneMor LLC, owner and operators of Highland Cemetery in South Bend. My official job title will be 'Family Services Counselor' (read, salesman). I will be assisting families in the 'at-need' and 'pre-need' planning of funeral arrangements for their loved ones as well as themselves. This will involve picking the right plot, casket, vault, and headstone/marker as well as arranging the internment service.
This is a totally resession-free industry as well as being extremely stable. I will be putting my customer service skills and compassion to use as I help these families during a most difficult time, and I am looking forward to the challenge of learning an entirely new industry. The people that I will be working with and for seem really great and there is plenty of room for advancement in the company as well. It is a suit and tie job, but I guess I can get used to that.
Most of all I'm so glad to be rid of the RV industry with it's market volatility and uncertainty.
I will be starting July 14th and am looking forward to a very rewarding carreer.
