Got those PowerBall tickets???  Toasters?  Green Eggs?  New speakers?   $550 Million?

There is a 100% chance I am not going to work tomorrow, but I also don't have even a very small percent of the lotto money.

He was a member of the clergy and used a picture of a lion as his avatar which I found curious for obvious reasons . When I asked him he simply responded , Lions 500 Christians 0 .

In 2006 at a Pilgrimage in Hope they had 2 drawings for prizes, the first one Daddy Dees name was picked, he won a pair of RF 7's. His daughter was just married, Dee gave the RF 7's to his new son in law so they would have nice speakers.

My name was picked in the second drawing and I won a pair of Cornwall lll's, they gave me a disc of pictures with the employees who built them.

I think that would’ve been Lions 499 and Christians 1. Or, maybe it just a tie between Daniel and the lions.

By my reckoning, it’s Daniel $13 million, Lions O.

 

“Daniel signed a three-year, $13 million contract with the Lions this offseason that included $5 million guaranteed and $3 million for this season.” The Big Lead

Thanks for posting those. I would not have envisioned it, so manual intensive in 2006. The paint guy does not have a mask on, must be well ventilated.

mornin' all

On my 2nd pot of coffee ....

..... some moron forgot to put the pot in the coffee machine after filling the tank the 1st run.....Bill ???

Glad our sink has a drainer at both ends and the coffee maker sits on one...

That can happen if I don't have coffee before making coffee.

 

  Not near as cold this AM.30ish. Ice on the water bowls outside. I calling a day off, too, Elden. Headed to the lake. Fishing has been slow that last couple outings and wife asked if we are having fish for dinner. All I could say was "We'll see". 

 

cooked dinner last night...

Improvised. We have 30lb of potatoes... I know we have frozen chicken, so fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy seemed like a no brainer.  Could only free 2 leg quarters from the block w/o thawing more that I wanted... 

Browned those 2 pieces. Tossed a chopped onion, celery and bell peppers in. And 1/2 can of rotel [not affiliated] diced tomato with habanero. These folks mean hot when they say Hot...that's why only 1/2 can...  .. Sorry, I don't have any of Oldtimer's sauce.. bearing in mind, I really need to use potatoes. Quartered some spuds and threw them in.  Came out quite tasty. Didn't notice it being spicy until I stopped eating and there was a lingering burn on my tongue.

They have large a large powered exhaust at the rear of all the paint booths but as you walk past the smell is still very heavy in the air 10 feet away.  I couldn't imagine doing that day after day.

it is used in the lane oil as a way to monitor how much oil is where on the lane....A finger isn't accurate enough for the regulatory agencies

Cool pictures Elden.

I had asked if they would let the employees sign the backs, the girl in the office said no, they took those instead and had each employee sign a certificate and what part they did, very nice of them. Now they let them sign the backs on occasion.

It's not far from that now, the only difference is it is now cut with a CNC machine and sprayed differently.

Yes it was huge fans that pulled the air out of the room, that black wall to the left is a giant vent, there are giant fans sucking air out, it was so strong I am not sure how they are able to spray in there. It's different now but the same fans, the fans are so strong they are also used for dust collection for the plant. On the roof and behind the building are huge ducts, for the dust collection part it ends up in a dumpster in front of the building. 

 

Part of it. I have no idea how it works but you can hear and feel the air being sucked out of the building.

That is fantastic. I have a dust collector that I have modified in my shop/garage that is similar on MUCH smaller scale. Basically you spin the stuff in a circle and the big/heavy stuff drops out and the fine particles go through a filter. If you are interested in some innovative stuff from a "regular" guy as I understand it.

Here is my mini version with the dust exiting out the rear window. So little makes it you never see anything outside. It is quite amazing. Works better than I ever expected. The LSI seems to jump out at the eye more than the dust collector.

The dust collection system has air ducts placed closer to the floor and at other strategic areas  of the plant  that remove the dust  through air suction , and it also extracts the dust particles in the air ,  filtering  the air  and subsequently it brings in fresher cleaner air from the outside  as it scavenges the dust into holding tanks --
