Thank the Lord for a new year. For plenty of us 2007 was great, for others not so good. I dropped into the not so good part back in Feb when I was ejected from my home of ten years. If any of you've ever bartered for the rent you know that if you are gainfully employed with a fulltime job, bartering ( in this situation working part time for a pool service which belonged to the individual I leased from ) represents, in truth, a 2nd job. It's a heck of lots of work.
