OK you overworked masses, please compare. I am about to go to work and will be there for 30 hours out of 38. 42 hours out of 62 at work. That's right. A full weeks worth of work with less than 24 hours off. 90 hours total for the week. Better than not having a job at all though. Rumors are flying around the hourly ranks that overtime is going to be cut back. Yeah. We will wait and see.
If there is anyone out there wanting to hire a dependable heavy equipment operator/organizer who is also familiar with manufacturing corporate teaming processes, I am available for $85,000 per year. Just putting that out there. Never know.
My boss, Russ Mengel (Huge Giant and Niner fan) is retiring this week. Russ has been a long time youth sports volunteer and has worked on the peninsula off and on for around 30 years. Russ (Eureka High class of 1970) and his wife Donna are moving to southern Idaho to be closer to family members. Yes, they are Mormons.
Idaho seems to be developing into Utah north. I worked on a organizing campaign there a few years back and could not see myself living there. One thing I thought was strange in Idaho though, I have never seen so many trampolines in peoples front yards! Some Mormon elder must be a distributor.
RV on Fire at the Whitethorn Junction (and We Talk About Heroes) - To the firefighters, "once again they are getting out of bed in the rain to put out a fire that they didn't start and that doesn't threaten their homes."
