My extended second childhood continues with the Classic Media DVD release of the 1965 Japanese/US co-production/Godzilla-and-friends monsterfest Invasion of Astro-Monster. (It was released in America under the less awkward and more accurate title Monster Zero as part of a double bill with 1966's War of the Gargantuas in 1970; I caught both on TV in the early 70s.)

Job hunters looking for the right kind of employment still have to make ends meet (and keep from going crazy) while going from interview to interview. The SnagAJob site provides an online directory of "hourly employment" minimum wage jobs. The site lists various retail, customer service, restaurant (fast food) and part-time job openings throughout the country. For more information click here.
The New York Times recently ran this story about Army Specialist Brendan Marrocco, who lost his arms and legs due to a roadside bomb in Iraq last year. Specialist Marrocco's efforts to resume a normal life with the support of his family, friends, and doctors, is a powerful and inspirational story (as well as a brutal reminder of the never-ending sacrifices our soldiers make, fighting for us overseas) that you can read here. Then go to this site if you'd like to show your support for Specialist Marrocco.
Okay, I said in my last post that new posts would start appearing on July 12. However, I managed to complete sooner than expected editing this podcast interview I did last month with Jim Lunny, VP of Workforce Development Solutions for GettingHired.com, the site that assists job seekers with disabilities,which I thought listeners might like. So please tune in. My thanks to Mr. Lunny for his patience and kindness. (You may have to adjust the volume accordingly.)
