Of course all weekend when I have no access to a computer or the internet my mind was swimming with ideas of stuff to write about. I get home this morning at 2 AM, get a shower and into bed and quickly fall asleep. I get up around 11 AM to a really fantastic thunderstorm and do you think I could remember just one of the ideas I had over the weekend?
I should start writing them down.
I do have some good news though, my boss finally hired not one but two people for the mine, so after I train them next weekend I won't have to go down there again for a while so I'm freed from purgatory.
And speaking of coal mines, there's talk going around here that coal is so hot right now that a few of the companies are thinking of re-opening several of the closed mines here in Mercer county and up in Raleigh county, which would be really good for the area, bringing in several hundred new jobs.
One final note. One of the officers of my fire department and webmaster of the FD website likes my writing so much he's given me my own place to write a monthly article on the website. Go here:
Have a swell day!
