Anarchy in the UK
The Patriots beat the Buccaneers 35 to 7 today in the heart of London at Wembley Stadium.
I like football as a diversion.
A diversion from the normal day to day activity of being unemployed.
Everyone else was prolly at home or in a bar watching the game on their day off.
With me, everyday is a day off.
Now, some of you might say, "You got it made"
I have never been this long without work since I was a teenager.
When they say the recession is over, I cringe.
I know at least 5 other people who are in the same situation as me.
I have no savings or 401k to fall back on, a bad marriage took care of that.
There is no American Dream.
There is only a day to day survival.
But still, you find something.
Rock n roll was always an escape.
Getting involved in the local scene proved essential.
There are friends among you, that you don't even know.
Last week some of them came through and helped me and Jeff Worm keep doing one thing that matters, I guess.
WURN.org will carry on for another year.
With a little help from our friends.
