Today is my birthday; I am 60 years old. Lest you think that is a joyful occasion, it is also the day I turn in my very last post at Mental Floss (to be posted Friday). Yes, after 11 years and seven months, I am being laid off. Combine that with the cutbacks at Neatorama, and I am in a pickle. I've been applying for local jobs wherever I can, but the skills I've gathered in 45 years of working don't translate well to what employers need here and now ...and I can't admit I've been working that long anyway, because it would give away my age. Just when I needed it, my pastor gave a message about "leaning on God because He loves us" at a prayer meeting last night. So I'm going to give the stress up to Him. Meanwhile, I'll keep applying! I will let y'all know how it turns out.
