I've been off-list for a while now.  We have been having a horrid time trying not to go bankrupt as the result of an IRS mistake and a vindictive wrongful eviction over serious maintenance issues.  We now waiting for the bankrupt State government to reimburse many thousands of dollars they owe us.  They have taken 4 months to process the material so far.  We have no savings, no credit and live from pay check to pay check. 

Insult to injury was recently provided by a local police officer who fined me $100 for going slowly through a stop sign with no traffic in sight just yards from my house trying to get home safely while fighting absolute exhaustion.  I was driving the last car load of stuff from our old house in an effort to beat the accelerated eviction time-line.  Did I mention that I am still recovering from major back surgery that makes moving anything extremely difficult.

The main heroes in this saga are a couple of atheists who lent and/or gave us thousands of dollars so that we could survive.  I also acknowledge a group of Catholics who moved our stuff for free in their "bread van" in spite of the threat of being caught by California's draconian liability laws.

The lesson:  nice people are nice people, regardless of their beliefs about the supernatural.

Rosemary,  That's horrible.  I really hope you come out on top of this crap and the powers that be do right by you. 

I wondered what had become of you but I see you had far more pressing problems than surfing the web.  My thoughts are with you.....Jim
