I just wanted to ask what people thaink can be done about this problem here in the UK. Everyday...people are made homeless. Its usually because they just cant afford to live and its either pay the rnet...or eat ( like myself ) and so, they get into arrears and are thrown out. There are places that will help if they can but usually these places are hostels etc and so...people end up losing their furniture and pets etc. If they are lucky...they will be able to start again but even if they can...how can they ever replace all that they lost? Also...homeless people are treated worse than criminals at times. They have nowhere to sleep and so end up in doorways, bus shelters etc and if the police find them...they move them on. Why? Are these people not worthy of even being able to sleep? It sickens me the way this country treats people. Most homeless people are homeless through no fault of their own. I know that for me, when I was made homeless nearly 2 years ago...it was my ex that contributed towards it. he then said that because I was homeless, he would take my kids away as I was an unfit mother. This coming from a drug addicted fuckwit who put me in debt in the first place and when I said that his reply was " Yep...and theres fuck all you can do about it. Youre homeless now which means I can have my kids". Over my dead body! I fought to keep my kids with me and it was a tough old struggle and now I find im facing it all over again. the reason...I just cant afford the rent but I cant afford to move either. The council are screwing me over every which way I turn and every day is so stressful. I claim housing benfot and incapacity benefit. Now housing benefit are saying that I can get 8 a week toward my rent...and I have to find the rest. Its 495 a month and my incapacity is 244 a mot=nth. I also get child benefit of 74 a month and 150 maintenance for my youngest. Thats it. So...with the best will in the world...how do I stay aloat? I cant. And I have given up even phoning H/B...they dont give a shit and so it looks like pretty soon...we'll be out on our ear with nowhere to go. And people wonder why I hate this country...........

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
