Rob, I am sorry to hear this.I too have been made redundant recently and know what you are going through.You can get on the internet free from the library so you can keep in touch with this forum .The upside is you get lots of time to practice and maybe now is the time to start busking!!

I feel for you Rob, I'm not unemployed but I've been on long term sick for 18months following an accident at work, the benefit people are the most unhelpful bunch I think I've ever come across. Still I've got my sax and that's what has got me through all this so far. Good luck and keep in touch with this site!

dont get me started on ex wives...........Contact the water company and tell them the situation.When I was going through divorce I quit work to look after 2 young children and I contacted all utility providers and I have to say Wessex water were very helpful and understanding

Rob,
Any posts regarding lax grammar or spelling differences are 'wind ups' between some of us, just to score meaningless points. I've never had a problem understanding your point of view, everything is very direct, wish I could do the same.
I am certain everyone else feels the same way so please stay on the board. Being an OAP means a regular income but you will get through this bad patch, music is a great help.
Good luck, young fellermelad, keep posting.

Rob, I'll echo what my mate OG said.
Fortunately I was never redundant throughout my working life, but I had some dark times and it was music that got me through. As I mentioned when you first joined the forum,, there is diagnosed dyslexia in my family so I know what it is like. Never let it be a reason to stop you trying anything!

Hey Rob, you're a regular around here now, so stick around with us. As others have said, the music will help you out so if you can do it hang on to that and just post as and when you can, but don't let it go. Keep at it all the while you can.

Good luck with whatever you get up to, and make sure you get all the help you can to re-train.

If you need to let it out your system someday just say so - there's a lot of banter around here but we're a supportive bunch when you need it.

Hi Rob

Yeah, keep the sax, if you need to cut down then maybe drop the lessons, but playing the sax was something I found helped me through the hard times in the past.

Bob Mintzer's books are great, BTW.

My only comment about the dyslexia is that I know someone who's seriously dyslexic and he now runs a successful gardeining business, so you nefver know how things might turn out.

my phone as wifi so will just stand outside someones house :)
Sorry to hear of your news mate, hope all works out well in the end. It will, it's just the bit inbetween that is a pain. So, keep smiling.
Incidentally, you can buy a special aerial, like a dish, that you can pick up someone elses internet signal, if they haven't secured it. But I guess at the moment you can't afford it anyway, so stick with the wifi fone idea.
Good luck
Pete
