Employment near my area is very sparse! Jobs are not available like they were in the 1990's. It's very difficult to find gainful employment these days.

I wish there were more major grocery store chains less than a mile from where I live. I have to drive a little more than a mile to get to stores like Target, Walmart and various other retail and grocery chains that provide variety.
I really can't speak for other individuals in this are, because I keep to myself I am very petite so I really do not exercise, I do not use drugs.
