Last night I spent the entire evening trying to think of any "home" business that would recoup the funds required to get into a home. Earning a living is one thing, but trying to come up with enough funds to get a home is the difference between climbing a hill, or tackling Mount Everest.
Yesterday one of the Christian ministries on Twitter contacted me about transporting some of my blog entries onto their blog. I asked if they were proposing a movie offer? *Laugh*

The twitter groups have been an unbelievable blessing. I am convinced that God directed me to this media when I no longer had any strength left to go forward. When I think I can't go one more day they always bring me motivation and encouragement.
By noon I was told that my worst fears have come true. I have lost my job permanently, and I have to move out of this shed. My head started spinning wondering how to cope with this.
This afternoon I had to go to Alamogordo to get an estimate for a replacement window for my truck. Before leaving Ruidoso I stopped in at the newspaper office to place an ad. looking for work - any type of work - and stopped to talk to Dianne Stallings for a few moments. For the better part of 4 years Dianne Stallings and the Ruidoso News tried with diligence to help me. I simply couldn't have found a better support system.
But no-one can pull a home out of thin air, with zero funds. And Robert Huckins is more than aware of that.
An Empire Of People-less Homes With Homeless PeopleThere has to be someone related to Robert & Sylve Huckins must have some means to reach them, if it be Michael Huckins, Dr.Kenneth Ogilvie ( Diana Huckins? Dominic Huckins? Malcolm Huckins? ) or Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins and get them to return ALL of the money they stole from us so that I can buy a home and get our lives back. I am begging anyone in this family for help.
There was once a vast and prosperous empire that was the most powerful in the land. It was mightier than the ancient Mayans, more popular than the Romans, and wider reaching than the British empire of old.
This Northern Amerigo empire was the envy of the world. The elite of smaller empires sent their offspring to be educated in schools called Harvard, Stanford, and Yale. Armies of other nations feared this empire’s “shock and awe” approach to war.
The world’s electronic airwaves were dominated by this empire, with its entertainment media broadcasting shows peculiarly named Desperate Housewives, CSI, and House all over the globe.
People from around the world desperately sought to enter this empire through land, air, and sea. Most were turned away but many succeeded in secretly crossing its borders. In fact, some believe more than 23 million aliens call this land their home.
Its international popularity was no surprise. Some people from faraway lands thought its sidewalks were paved with gold, and its rivers flowed with Willy Wonka’s chocolate. Who wouldn’t want to live in a land of Beverly Hillbillies where even country bumpkins can live in a Beverly Hills mansion, or where an average cop can drive a Ferrari Daytona Spider sports car down the glittering streets of Miami.
But like other empires of past, their power, wealth, and influence declined in time. Some people believe the decline was based on sacrilegious acts of sin. Others think national diminution was because of excessive waste, or the natural lackadaisical nature of second and third generations.
This writer thinks the decline of this great nation began when its leaders did not take care of the least of its people, those citizens who were so desperately entrenched in poverty that they had to live exposed on the land like some squatter in a Third World country.
Impoverished nations, however, typically have no resources to house its people. But in the case of the Amerigo empire, this nation of wealth and power had enough empty homes across its land to house more than 18 million of its hurting citizens. That is 24 empty homes for every Amerigo subject who is living on the streets.
Of course, the 18 million homes became empty due to the worst economy in a generation. The wealthy and politically influential merchants, also known as bankers, took back these homes and left them empty in hopes that a recovering economy would raise its value.
Most of the former homeowners took refuge in rental units. But, sadly, this nation of riches allowed three-quarters of a million of its subjects to live in extreme poverty on its streets.
With millions of empty homes scattered across the land just sitting without occupants, many in this land realized the empire had no clothes. An affluent nation possessing millions of empty homes while hundreds of thousands of its people go without homes was immoral. So the rumblings of injustice began.
But it is not too late for this wealthy and powerful nation to return to its greatness. To house its impoverished citizens in a land of empty houses would be a gargantuan shift in policy that would be heard and seen throughout the globe.
Because most would agree that an empire of people-less homes should not have homeless people.
I don't believe I have EVER witnessed any none violent crime that can be as devastating as stealing someone's home. I am walking in Dorothy McKeevers footsteps, day by day, month by month, year by year.
Liam Griffin, I sat in your law office with two witnesses as you gave me your promise, your guarantee, that our money would be returned before harm came to us.
Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins you were present the day I signed contract with your son. You walked out of the kitchen with Sylve Huckins and your son introduced me to you. He told you that I was the British horse trainer he had told you about, the one he was going to build the home and barn for. Why didn't you say something? There may be a rational and reasonable explanation but I have spent over 3 years, homeless, not understanding it. I understand it even less knowing that though I was a total stranger, both Dorothy McKeever and Sally Canning you KNEW, and you knew what your son had done to them and others.
Dr. Kenneth Ogilvie, I contacted you and simply asked for a reference, not knowing that Robert Huckins was your cousin. Robert Huckins had just stolen over $30,000 from the domestic violence shelter, HEAL, yet everyone was trying to hide it. There was a history of stealing large amounts of money. $65,000 PLUS from Nancy Canning. $89,000 PLUS from Dorothy McKeever, $45,000 from Francis McKinney. The list just goes on and on and on.
Because of Robert Huckins I ended up paying $140,000 to be homeless.. sat in the cold, emotionally, physically and financially broke. In the middle of a recession, with no way to recover the stolen funds.
Today Robert Huckins has his own home...
He also has OUR home.....
He also has a lot of people's money...
And his freedom.
Women are not banks or loan institutions. Women should not be the source of a retirement fund for people who don't want to do an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. Holding women hostage while playing with the judicial system, a horrendous game of cat and mouse extending YEARS, with the victims whose very homes, families and stability are in jeopardy is cruelty, as cruel as a physical beating. It is financial and emotional RAPE. Homelessness is not justice. It is a slow, painful death.
Please, I beg with everything I have within me, please convince Robert Huckins to stop this torture and return the building fund he stole from us so we too, can have a home.
