Talking

I am sure if I was in California I would have to be screening people.

Such is life.

When the Rio Grande river is solid Ice and hurricanes bring snow instead of rain.

I might think of moving that far to the deep south .. If it would not be for the water freezing . I would forgo heat.

Been to Mecklenburg County a few times in the wee hours of the morning .

Thanks for looking wish you were closer.

Such is life

What I am seeing here in Eastern Pa with so many of the family farms seeing the huge amounts of money they can get from the developers . Plus the fact most of the kids don`t want anything to do with any sort of work.

For the most we have a labor force who has no idea what a real hard day of work is. They want big money and lots of hours but call off work for the least little thing.

I guess I was lucky and fell in with the right crowd instead of the wrong crowd i learned all about heavy equipment and Tractor Trailers could talk Cats and Cummins engines before I could drive legal.

Till this day I still learn every day and work 7 days a week doing one thing or another

I hear so often i am really broke I say well I can always use help on weekends. Oh I don`t work on weekends . Thats the way it goes person laid off needs money can`t work weekends . And not because they have to watch the kids or spend family time with mommy.

Minnesota has weather I can deal with just a little to flat for my tastes Years ago i used to get up that way every once in a while

It gets better .

Sometime before it started to get cold Two people down the street said they would paint the 10'x10 ' overhead doors .

Short story is they got one painted in lets say 3 months . It was just to hard of work for them to do.

Still looking!!

Please no one more than a hour away it just would not work.

Great opportunity for someone who wants to learn the Fab business hands on. Been to school thinking of school.

If you have good mechanical skills and a willingness to learn perhaps a shot in the welder/ plasma repair field but who know what happens when the new taxes kick in Jan 2013.

Maybe there is someone out there who just lurks.

Feel free to drop me a letter of interest .

Doubtful but trying again
