When I was not looking, my faithful friend Andrew, took over the controls of my Apple and video camera while I stepped away. Although he did not send any emails or make any Skype calls, that I am aware of, it proves even a dog can appreciate a technology.

Unemployed?
Start a blog to tell prospective employers you are searching for work. There are currently 215,200 unemployed workers in Minnesota, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Read more. . .

As I am now one of the 215,200 after my recent layoff, I have posted my resume on my blog to help snag my next job. Click here to see my resume and search my blog.

Using free resources, like a blog, is a great way to network to your next job. Remember, if you were laidoff, it’s because your former employer could not afford to keep you on the payroll, not because of your work. My motto is,

” I will get a better job than the one I was laid off from!”

Start your blog!
I invite you to join me at AreaVoices.com and create your own blog. It’s free, really! Just select a topic related to health, money, travel, family or food. I am sure you have an interest in one of the topics and you can share your ideas with the community at AreaVoices.com.

View Areavoices blogger Tami Tagtow’s blog Look At This. I spotted her blizzard videos on Facebook and encouraged her to share her videos with the Areavoices community for more people to enjoy. You can do the same by starting your own blog!

See my most viewed blog with photos of racing pilot Jimmy Leeward from 2005 when I was an employee of The New York Times Company.


In 2005 I photographed Jimmy and Bette Leeward, standing in front of their 1947 Piper J-3 Cub plane in their hangar at Leeward Air Ranch, Feb. 2, 2005, in Ocala, FL. Leeward died when he crashed his World War II fighter P-51 Mustang during the Reno Air Races in Reno Nevada Friday September 16, 2011. (Jannet Walsh/Star-Banner)2005

Racing pilot Jimmy Leeward remembered

In bette leeward, Catholic, Jimmy Leeward, news, state, World on September 19, 2011 at 8:20 am

By Jannet Walsh
Murdock, Minnesota


Note: In 2005 I photographed Jimmy and Bette Leeward, standing in front of their 1947 Piper J-3 Cub plane in their hangar at Leeward Air Ranch, Feb. 2, 2005, in Ocala, FL. I was living and working in Florida, an employee of The New York Times Company. Leeward died when he crashed his World War II fighter P-51 Mustang during the Reno Air Races in Reno Nevada Friday September 16, 2011. (Jannet Walsh/Star-Banner)2005

Update
Please see Friends of pilot remember a hero by By Marian Rizzo, Ocala.com.

From Ocala.com
“Even before that fateful moment, Leeward has seemed a hero to many others. The Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, said the Leewards attended services there. Jimmy was on the church building committee and also supported the construction of Trinity Catholic High School.” Read full story at ocala.com

What I remember about the afternoon I spent with the Leewards was how humble, and accommodating the couple were during the photo shoot. Please see below more photos in a photo gallery, mainly by a the yellow J-Cub plane.

Video response to President’s work speech planned

If I can pull it off, I plan to respond this evening with a video of President Obama’s speech about putting American back to work. I might live in Murdock, population 303, but I am feeling the pain of unemployment just like the rest of the nation.


I have a few ideas I plan to share to about putting our nation back to work, including myself. I’ll tell you a little about my struggle during the Great Recession and why I am ready for a real change for our workforce.

Zero job growth: Labor Day 2011 celebrated anyway!

In Blogging, Career Coach, Laid Off, layoff, Minnesota, Minnesota Native Daughter, Murdock, rural, Willmar, Workforce on September 5, 2011 at 6:41 pm

By Jannet Walsh
Murdock, Minnesota

Our nation’s current job growth is zero.

The zero job growth last happened during World War II. If that was not bad enough, the United States posted a 9.1 percent unemployment rate for August 2011. The unemployment rates are always for the the last month completed, not the current month. (Read more. . .)

Unemployed on Labor Day 2011?
If your are unemployed today, did you celebrate your job search labors? You should! To be laid off from your job is not a reflection of your work, but the ability of an employer to keep you on the payroll. It’s just about business, nothing more, and times are tough. Hint: Repeat the last sentence if you think a lay off is about something else.

Next steps?
If you have not already applied for unemployment benefits, retraining and more, it’s time to take action. (Read more. . .)

Positive Attitude Required
Keep a positive attitude and make a plan to find your next job or career. Time to move on about being laid off as you are likely to get a better job than you were laid off from. Oh, that’s my motto!

I will get a better job than I was laid off from! Jannet Walsh, Murdock, Minnesota
