    Sorry for the slow response guys, but many thanks to you all, and i promise to keep it up!
    I've had a bit of a change in life, mainly the loss of my job. Been there 8 years, and i havn't
    been unemployed in 20 years, wow what a weird feeling! Sad

    Are you guys feeling the econmy hit as well?

    Sorry to here that, locally is not that much better, some are in your situation, many business or ending contracts or to the worst the business, cost of living is always increasing with the prediction that next year should be better, but does not look that positive yet. Next month is Budget period for Malta ... alreday not sounding that positive!

    Economy is slow, very slow ... especially as we are a tiny island and things effect us twice as much as the big countries ... but we are striving! HOPEFULLY!!!!! No

    THIS IS A WORLDWIDE RECESSION and as ivan already said it hits us even worse because we are such a small nation, having no natural resources except the sun and sea we feel it twice as much since tourism is a major player and in lean times the first to be hit. compounded by the fact that our politicians seem to be living in happy happyland and are oblivious to the situation the workers and mid businesses are going trough.
    this might not be of any consolation to you, but you are not alone

    Luft I can only echo what my two SSM brothers said before me and I can also offer you my sympathies Embarassed

    I would like to add just this.......being ALREADY SMALL as we are, and as Alex pointed out that our politicians seem to be living on a different island, where the roads are smooth and there is no recession, they have the AUDICITY to INVITE ILLEGAL INVADERS to our TINY HOME to GNAW even more at the ALREADY EXHAUSTED ECONOMY & SMALL TERRITORY Twisted Evil

    I know I may not have found you an alternative job just now but rest assured that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at these stormy times!!!

    i concur with what has been said. There is not much one can do from this way off except tell you that you are in our thoughts. hang in there and don;t give up looking. The worst of the recession should be over and maybe things will start looking up in the not too distant future.
