    Although I currently have two jobs, during April Madness, I had three.

    I have social security and a pension, but also freelance index .... create the index that goes in the back of a book. Most of my indexing has been on books in the fields of computers, medicine, and technology. However, I have idexed a number of books in the theological area published for or by the seminary here in Prague.

    My money cometh from my retirement pension. I did not choose "Social Security or other retirement" because here, pension from one's former employment is not a Social Security benefit.

    DH is employed full time at the church as a pastor. I work part time at the church too. That's all the income we have.

    Actually, two-and-a-half jobs: I work, I do a paper route, and I teach Piano lessons all day Tuesdays. Stink--that's today!:BangHead:

    Full time Pastor/Worship Leader/Youth Leader (does that count as three jobs?). I also teach two Bible classes at the local Christian School each morning (it pays most of our kids tuition).

    I chose "other" since my income is a retirement check and not social security.

    I chose "Other" as one of four valid answers, since my wife and I sell Avon. We also have another venture we are working on, but it is not yet profitable.

    I have a fulltime job, dear wife as parttime job, and I have USAF retirement pay for the other three options.

    Wife got laid off in December...unemployment check

    I work full time until May 17th when my job is ending...unemployment check.

    I'm waiting on payment from a business deal to clear escrow for months now. Once we get that, neither will have to work. We are a hair between poverty and wealth. Interesting how God works...

    My wife works in hotel management. I have several ways of making money, I repair music equipment, I have a recording studio, I also play music professionally, do high-end audio & entertainment system installation. I have also been known to drive trucks filled with tile, or other building materials across the Northwest, and do fill in nite-time security shifts at some of the local hotels.

    I'm a self-employed lawyer. My wife is a speech therapist currently on maternity leave; she went down to working two days a week when our first child was born. In addition, she is on the books at my work place and gets paid a salary by us for that. We also get child benefit for each of our two children from the government and my wife receives rent from the apartment she owned before we got married and which we've kept on as an investment property for our retirement fund.

    Income from my job as a retail manager, and Jeanne and the kids get Social Security because Jeanne is unable to work due to disability.

    In the poll I listed the source of income as disability check because the choice for Social Secuirty seemed to indicate Social Security Retirement.

    Two jobs. The church I pastor pays me enough to cover the housing expenses. If I plan on eating or buying $4.00 gas I have to go to my other job- a drug and alcohol counselor. madre is a freelance piano player. She accompanies high school vocalist during music competitions, high school and elementary choruses, a community chorus and musicals at two local high schools. She plays the piano at church, too. We pay her complements.

    I am currently on page 85 if the inventory of our personal property. Of course most of those pages are filled with our 643 books. Once we get the inventory done then the insurance company will decided that each of our books are worth .50 and give us a check.
