Then you should come on May or October. This year on June we got to 35? on June and 40? on July, August and September. Fucking hot.

You mean adding a forum?  ;D

Am I posting a lot today?  Maybe it's slow here at work, in the last few days of my current assignment... back on the employment scrapheap again for a while until the agency get a move on!

So, what's going on in the UK jobs market?  Seems not much, from my perspective.  Been three and a half years since I was made redundant and I've been skipping in and out of the wilderness.

But is this lack of stability a good thing?  Am I being kept on my toes, or is the lack of a routine and some guarantees in my life wearing away at my dudeliness?

I wrote some time back an article about liferoads, and taking a walk from the road most travelled being a good thing.  Although I don't feel so safe wandering down these backroads at the moment.  I feel like Old Man Life is about to jump out and mug me.  I've been abiding with it as best I can for the duration, but now I'm thinking the biggest change would be to get a stable job.  A change from a change is as good as taking a rest from resting... or something like that ???

I think part of Dudeism might be making the best of what you've got.  It's not my ideal situation, but like I said, it gives me a change to swap things over and change things around one in a while.  Mixing it up, as they say :)

I've had long times out of work, times in one-day assignments and a couple of good multi-month placements.  I've also had the worst and most bizarre work experience of my life that killed my social life, beat the shit out of my home life/relationship and worked over my health something chronic.  But those are all experiences I treasure, even if some of them I wish never to repeat.  It's a learning experience.  Someone in this office told me last week "You never really appreciate any job until you've had one that really properly screws up your life".  A wise fella indeed!

So, although I'm greatly saddened to be forced out of this place I've grown to love in just 8 weeks, I guess I'll move on and learn to abide with whatever comes next.  Whether it's more months at home, or into a new temporary position, I think I feel better equipped to abide with whatever comes my way.

Here's to another year of doom and gloom in the UK job market!

Well, I'm becoming a bit tired of being unemployed and having to jump like a monkey for some clams. I'm seriously thinking about raising bees as beside making beer it seems to me one of the dudest job around. But also I'm going to seriously learn how to cut grapes as where I live there are many wine makers and it should open the doors to some work and a bit of money this Spring.

Then when I'll become rich I'll open a private lake for fishing if I'm able to find a cheap one. Well, this is far in the future. You know, in the agriculture usually small farmers never get rich but at least they have always food to eat.  8)

Gotta love the simple life, man! :)

I myself adopted my first bonsai tree yesterday.  He's a beautiful 4-year-old Ligustrum.  A little drop of natural, zesty zen in my daily life :D

I reckon where I live (falmouth uk) has some dudely qualities. A bowling alley, (though NO KALUHA!!), good places to eat/drink ( I can recommended a few) and hang out, eg parks, woods, beaches, a couple of local brewery's, live music venues etc. Transport links are pretty good, shops cater for most things, though you would have to venture further for some (eg head shop), but on the whole, it suits me and nowhere is perfect.

I will add, that if you want to get a job, sir,  with the current market,  the south west of the UK, is not good. As for the community, racially pretty cool,  there's something for everyone, there is a good pace of life down here, unlike a city, which I like.

I do however think that those fucks in governmental league office could do better as far as housing is concerned, there are alot of second home owners in this part of the UK which makes it hard for young people leaving university etc.

For a county whose main income is tourism, it's ok, other industry such as mining and commercial fishing has been on the decline for years, so I prefer to shop local, support local farmers/businesses and organisations. Cornwall is a beautiful place to live, with an amazing landscape and a rich cultural heritage, I'm not sure I'd want to be anywhere else.
