Very nice thing for you to do.

I would vouch for you any hour of the day Mike. :)
No money here either. I'm in a slight war to have "Myoclonus" recognized as a disease.
However, I can help with Mystery shopping if you wish. The phone call is on me.
I will not go into sleep myoclonus too much. You do not want it.
That is all I can say. Easy to look up.
So what I did, I started mystery shopping. I cannot do much in winter in my part of Canada, but people who can drive do make about 20K to 30K a year. I bike as much as I can, in summer and spring. So I bike to the shops.
I make $200 a month doing it in summer. I am also going blind. I am in a slight bind right now, I just want the disability recognized, and am fighting to the end.
I may lose. If I do lose, I am going back to drinking, and no more legal drugs.
Serious!!! Those legal tranquilizers are much worse than beer! At least I can work with a mild hangover. lol!
(I will work for G.M. Every car has spare screws. So if I forget to put one in somewhere, no one notices. I learned this by taking cars apart. You put it back together, spare parts! I love cars...).
The bug is, you do not get paid for at least a month, mystery shopping.
Here is a sample shop in Canada.
"Day to Day Banking: Looking to open up a chequing or savings account on a Sunday"
Due: 2012-11-25 10:00 PM | Pay Rate: 30.00 CAD"
The spelling error is not mine! lol!
Look at it this way, in two months, you get some money.
Winter is no good for me, as I do not drive. I am trying some other things as well. User testing pays me about $30 a month. (It all adds up).
I am going to do one with a web cam. Pays about $200 a month.
I am part Scottish, so I am signed up for lots of free stuff.
Ok, I'm a cheap bastard. lol!
I stopped trading, until all is settled.
All I want is a day job, with a big screen I can read! Not so easy to find at fifty-two. : )
Sleep myoclonus, is a disease, where you stop breathing, once you enter the REM state of sleeping. It also has a tremendous amount of twitching, so your day is ruined. Sleep does not exist. It is part of the Parkinson's disease family, and epilepsy.
You are outstanding in your honesty Mike. And you have a lovely family. God loves ya, this I am sure of. : )
We all have these personal wars, that interfere with our dreams. We must fight, tougher than most. I know this is why we are traders and sports gamblers.
You call NFL like no one can. All that aside, trading aside, we do need to live correctly, and get rid of our nemesis, no matter what it is.
If things go well, I may help you out in January. I have to really watch my cash, because I took a huge wager, to get "Myoclonus" recognized. I bet my small fortune on it.
It is important to me. Other people have it. Maybe the road will be easier for them in a future time. It is so misunderstood, five doctors I have met and a lawyer, never heard of it.
I know how to pick them! lol
Ok, just read. You like it or you do not.
You want shops, where you do not pay for anything.
Or need to purchase anything.
And you can do phone shops from home. I have not really looked a lot, but they do exist. I got screwed over by one company, and stopped. I was making like $20 an hour. And it went to $5 an hour. The bad is always in there somewhere...
I think of it all as multiple streams of income. Small amounts, but they do pay my bills.
Just have a quick look, and if it is something you like, let me know. I wrote a whole guide on it! I was giving it away to people, just to help them out. I just wanted to make a local club, and share ideas with people.
And check this out. Very nice people, if you hit a good chapter.
I hope this helps a bit Mike. You may meet people through the trash nothing group as well. Contacts if you will.
I gave a guy a heart monitor. My heart is fine. Still ticking. He lost all his money, in the last few years, stocks. His house, everything. I think he loaded up on Blackberry, he would not go into detail.
So he had a bad heart, and I had a heart monitor doing nothing. That is what trash nothing is all about. People just give away, what they do not need. I have seen free furniture, washers, dryers, freezers, a side of beef, you name it!
Ok, no rockets from NASA, but close. : )
It is a recycle group mostly. You do not get trash. It just people who would rather give stuff away, than trash it. Nifty idea!
All these things will help a little, but they do take up time. I am Ok with time. But it is not for everyone. : )
