8 week update.....

Hi all,

I just been to see the housing dept at the local council, shocking really, they say they can't do anything, mainly because my son's don't live wiith me.
They say they will look into it once I am homeless.!! Far too late then.
So.. move on from that.. :-/

The new place is going to cost aroound 1000 to move into, thats the deposit, rent in advance.
I am going to look at the as positive as I can, one way is to move nearer to my son's to enable me to see them more over the week, that will also help free up time at the weekends to get working harder.

At the age my son's are they will soon be wanting to see ther mates in the weekends, so.. thats an idea that will work for us all.

I am still looking to see if I can get any stone work, carving, lettercutting etc. If I am lucky, I may be able to get a place that has a garden, shed or garage, that would enable me to do some stone work at home.
I will build a site showcasing any stone work I have done, that may help alot.

Someone quipped to me yesterday, that "people don't stop dying" so headstones are one way to go... sad but true.
Though there are others here already established in that area.

I have filled the disability allowance forms in, as I am deaf, though I was shocked to be asked to "prove" I am deaf, "a docs note" they say..
Yeah I know....unbelievable, more so when I am sat there with hearing aids in.!!
This will also give me some help in other areas in life, like a texttalk phone, a light connected to the doorbell.. etc.

I would like to get a page up for here.. www.portlanduk.com
Thats a domain I have though I am not so good at building pages yet.. any tips would be great..

A page similar to.. www.monroeareashops.com would be nice.. :-)
I am learning with fp2000, will learn dw once I get sorted, and can do it.

If I can get that page done, I maybe able to sell ad space to local firms, and that may help alot.
Add newsletter for locals onto that. :-)
Something worth getting going?
A blog / newsletter?

I already put a forum onto it.. www.portlanduk.com/forum/
It's new..so.. :-)
Other than that I have to just keep plugging away.

Being deaf and unable to use a phone, I feel very lucky to be able to "talk" to others online, and it has opened a world for me.

I hope to get this sorted sooner than later.
As my landlord clearly stated, if I have'nt got somewhere its tough.. I'll be homeless, so it is a matter of seriousness.
I hope that goes someway to explaining what I hope to get done.

I would be most grateful, for any advice.

Take care, and thank you.

I am very pleased that I can communicate with people like you.

Rob

A good idea? Can I help you?

NOTICE TO SCUMBEEZLES
(you know who you are... you scream "Foul!" when the truth comes out)
        PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT.  It has been done before, but never successfully.  In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
        If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
        NEWS FLASH:  I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday.  I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish.  I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?).  I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!" 
        Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

        Although we may, from time to time, monitor or review discussions, postings and the like on the Friends In Business (Scams 101) Message Board, we are under no obligation to do so.  We are not responsible or liable for any claim arising from the content of any such discussions or postings or for any error, defamation, libel, slander, omission, falsehood, obscenity, pornography, profanity, danger, or inaccuracy contained in any information contained within such locations on the Site.
        You are prohibited from posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane materials or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law.  You are likewise prohibited from posting any false claims against any company or individual.  We will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information or materials.
        By posting messages and/or content on the Friends In Business (Scams 101) Message Board, you give permission for Lesley Fountain/Friends In Business/Shoestring Success Publications to display, distribute and use the posting and content for publication, advertising, promotion, excerption or example. You grant Lesley Fountain/Friends In Business/Shoestring Success Publications complete, perpetual, but non-exclusive rights to use, archive, reproduce, adapt, modify, distribute, sub-license, repurpose, rework, compile, or offer for sale or resale the messages, postings or content appearing on this site in whole or in part, throughout the world and universe, on a royalty-free basis without remuneration.  If you cannot accept or agree with the terms of service for this website and discussion board, you are advised not to post on this board.
        In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
        And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
