Power Plant Harbinger of D-Day on the Horizon

Power Plant Men

During the major overhaul on Unit 1 during the spring of 1994 in retrospect, there were signs that something similar to the downsizing at the Oklahoma Electric company that had happened in 1988 was coming around again.  The reason the company had to downsize was a little hard to swallow, but they were real.  We had painted ourselves into a corner.  The punishment was a downsizing (D-Day).  The reason was that we had been very successful.  The outcome was ironic.

I will save the details of the 1994 downsizing for a post in a few weeks.  In this post, I want to talk about the Power Plant Men, and how we all played an important part in bringing the demise of 50% of our own workforce.  I will also mention some of the True Power Plant Men that were let go because of the tremendous accomplishments achieved by those very…

O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.

Surat Al-Hujurat [49:13]

And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge.

Surat Ar-Rum [30:22]

O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful.

Rainbow Lorikeet

#AceFriendsNews – Great post as per usual and love the pictures. Ian


This is where we have chosen to nest and rear our young this year.

I took these photographs with my phone when I was out walking Chi near “My Beach” this week. They were quite tolerant considering Chi was sniffing around under their tree. Not wanting to stress, them I took a few quick shots and left them to it.
