Should I look for the same type of work for employment? (click here) Should I instead train for something I enjoy? (click here) Do I have talent in Advertising, marketing, and graphic design? (click here)

My 1999 Escort is too low and too confining for me. I can just barely fit through the door opening. I have to fall down sideways to drop onto the very low seat. It has 72K miles, 10-CD changer and no issues otherwise. It is selling for $5,000.00. My automobile insurance is $500/year. Should I purchase a Toyota RAV 4? (click here) There are government incentives to buy a new vehicle. Should I wait until it is available in a hybrid? (click here) Should I wait until I get a job where I must commute to Miami Florida? (click here)

I have just learned that Fortunoff is now defunct. I am shocked. Fortunoff was liquidated on February 23, 2009. This is the date I was laid off from my last employment. Circuit City was liquidated soon afterward. Both of these businesses have been around since 1922 and 1949. They were my first (1979) and longest (1999) employers! I knew and worked with the original Fortunoff family members! I also worked at these companies that are out of business: Hoffritz for Cutlery, Manufacturers Hanover Trust Co., Chemical Bank, Gateway Country, and The Wiz.
