If you know somewhere that will give a 59 year old a job, I will apply for it, however most employers are being manipulated into employing 18-25 year olds.

I can understand that totally from an older worker's perspective, but as a 23 year Old I can honestly say its been a nightmare job hunting - most places want experience and longevity.

The reverse is observed in my sector. LD nursing is an ageing workforce. We love taking on folks your age. Someone's going to have to pick the baton up from us old uns....

Depends on the sector I suppose!

Younger persons who want to go into nursing move in to the Glamour side of it, A&E, ITU, Paediatrics, they rarely go in to elderly care, LD, Theatres, because they aren't flashed on TV enough, the only time you see theatres is on M*A*S*H, I spent 30 years working in great environments in theatres as an ODP, & made many friends.

It may also depend on the region. Where I work overlaps with learning disability and our workforce is getting younger. They aren't joining for the pay, that's for sure.

Off context: I was packing photographs and I found a photo of my Mum & Dad at my 1990 wedding, she wouldv'e loved a grand daughter.

I really care for my family on this website, I don't always care for your thoughts, neither do you for mine.

But I love you all the same, take care.

A photo of my Mum being walked into Stowells Memorial Church on the day of her wedding, by my Grandfather in 1960 is one of my favourites. 23/07/1960

Sorted the paperwork out on a 2nd floor flat @ TN38 0BN

Is the flat facing the sea?

I don't think the view was a deal-breaker for Bleep.

Grew up in Salford, M5 2LN, not that great aview of Sea, moved to Uxbridge, UB8 3UB, still no sign of the sea..........

I Love St. LEONARDS-ON-SEA. Despite its difficulty of being too far away from a Rugby League club.

Why? Do want a visit? See TONY XIII for a better view

Just a bit envious - my flat faces the back of another house, a view which lacks sustained aesthetic interest.

I am a reasonable cook, I haven't killed anybody yet, but it took me 2 years to work out my oven & stove top settings because some brick had used a heavy scrubber to remove all the dial settings,  I hope my new flat isn't that bad. It put me off cooking for a while. Except for my daughter of course.

I have a sea view, but at the rear is a lot of car mechanics.

If you're a proper RL fan, you'll insist on staring 100% at the car mechanics, while complaining that you don't have a view of something nicer, like the sea.

When I move in, pictures of the sea, for those who have never seen it will follow. Its bigger than a canal, and might scare some.

Love you all, only kidding. I know there are some East Pennines who are allergic to soap & water, please don't be offended

That's why I moved from Uxbridge.  Sitting on a double roundabout, on a dual carriageway leading to Heathrow, halfway between the local fire station, & the Hospital, the sirens were driving me mental, it was only this site that kept me 75% sane.
