1) Business (I am self-employed): need to get existing projects done and paid for (2 invoices are more than 3 weeks late), total of 4 invoices are outstanding). Need to get new projects. I teach an online course, and would like to have new people sign-up today, especially Americans
2) In a group waiting for a major investment to mature any day/moment now. We need this to happen. For many of us, this investment is our ONLY retirement fund.
3) Involved in a research study related to the above investment. My colleague and I have been working on this study for the last 600 days, and we have yet to be paid for our efforts. We need some of this to happen ASAP.
4) Have been helping a young woman in a West African country to come to Canada. She has her own money from an inheritance left by her deceased parents, but government/bank regulations (and corruption) are not letting her have access to her funds (for Benny).
5) Benny has a friend in Winnipeg named Jennifer, who was in a car accident more than 4 weeks ago. We have not heard from her, and we hope she is OK. Benny needs Jennifer's help to get to Canada.
6) My wife Kim has had many migraines in the last 3 weeks. These need to stop.
7) Had to put down one of our cats last week. We have now lost 3 this year (plus our dog) These three are related (mom cat and two siblings). The cat put down last week was called Wilson, like the volley ball in the Castaway Movie. I will miss him.I pray that other two siblings will make it to next year, and the mom cat's sister will last out the year.
