HIDDEN AWAY

The deepest of her fur and the softness of her main as she prowls her own domain. By night and day she walks her own way and chooses who will stroke, approach her not or she will scratch and leave her mark on you. Though treat her well and she will lay upon your lap. Meow Purr 😻

The OSHA Man Cometh

Power Plant Men

I suppose when you are a Plant Manager, the last person you want to see at your Power Plant doorstep is the OSHA Man!  That’s exactly what happened on Thursday, March 10, 1994 at the Coal-fired Power Plant in North Central Oklahoma.  He was not paying a social call.  He was there to conduct an investigation.  One in which I was heavily involved.

In my post from last week, “Tragedy Occurs During Power Plant Safety Meeting” I described a near death accident where a contract worker was engulfed in fly ash in a precipitator hopper.  The accident was all over the 5 o’clock news in Oklahoma City.  The press was there when the Life Flight helicopter arrived at the hospital where they interviewed the flight crew.  The OSHA office in the Federal building a few blocks from the Electric Company’s Corporate Headquarters had quickly assigned someone to the…

Lost in Gothic Quarter

Another great post Indah http://flip.it/aofPB

indahs: dive, travel & photography

I traveled with my mother on my second visit to Barcelona (Spain). We decided not to join any guided tours to explore the Gothic Quarter as I was convinced it should be easy to rely on the GPS map in my mobile phone aside to our printed map. The nice thing about Barcelona, the city had numerous WiFi hotspots in its touristic areas. But someone (read: me, my mother is a retro phone user) forgot to re-charge her mobile phone’s battery before the walk. The exploration mission was ‘half-successful’ after we lost in the labyrinth of the Gothic Quarter. But we compromised our walk by seeing other landmarks outside of the quarter. Barcelona was fascinating that way…

01 Placa de CatalunyaWe started from Plaça de Catalunya. It was a busy square and rather confusing to guess which direction to go to as there were multiple roads around the square.  My mother and I…

In Saner Thought

Enough with the politics of everything……why not lighten up the posts a bit?  After all the relaxation of the weekend is approaching…..

We Americans love our fads……fads in politics, entertainment, clothing and especially in our food….Kale comes to mind.

I use to have a food blog but it got no traffic and it was a waste of time so from time to time I will post on food…..I would give recipes but Americans would not know good food if it bit them in the ass…..Kale comes mind.

Me….I am a meat eater….I was born a predator…….and high on my list is steak…..a filet is best….no waste….and then second is a really good burger….meat bread little mayo and brown mustard….period.  The greens are for a salad…..Kale comes to mind.

But I read an article that made me step back and go eeewwww……..

A close look at ground beef reveals some pretty…

Assessment

Great post thought provoking to say the least 👍

anansi2050

You know—I’ve been working 24 years of my life so far. And you know what I’ve noticed? I’ve noticed that people for the most part are great people. They love  their families,  their community, and their country, but sometimes, just sometimes, they can become a—pain. They’re aggravated, and I don’t think they know why. I can relate, because at some point in my life I was walking around aggravated—totally pissed-off at my circumstances. Until I found out that it wasn’t the circumstances, it was  me!. I was just plain bored! And my aggravation was just my subconscious trying to get it through my “thick”—skull. It was trying to give me a swift kick in the backside so I would wake up! Begging me to wake up out my sedentary lifestyle and search  for true meaning, meaning that resonates with my spirit, my soul. I guess that makes me one of…

مهاترات وطن : الاستيطان والاحتلال الداخلي

مهاترات وطن : الاستيطان والاحتلال الداخلي

تستمر الانتهاكات الاسرائيلية لتدك في كياننا الفلسطيني من كل جانب . بينما نستمر نحن الفلسطينيون في تلقي ضربات نحاول حماية انفسنا فيها من المكان الخاطيء . يشبه حالنا من كان يقف في حلبة مصارعة خسر فصارت الضربات تلقى عليه من الخصم ومن الجمهور الذي راهن عليه . ونحن ،ذلك المصارع الخاسر متهاو على الارض يحاول حماية ما يمكن حمايته مما تبقى من جسده المهزوم.

اعجز احيانا كثيرة عن كتابة ما ارغب بكتابته لدى تقليبي لصفحات الاعلام المختلفة . احيانا اشعر باني اريد فقط ان اكتب كل تلك العناوين التي تستوقفني في مقال واحد لأرى ما يخرج منها . واخاف لان ما سيخرج هو كمن يخيط جسدا بعد عمليات تجرى فقط في عيادات الطب الشرعي .

فمن اخبار داخلية تفطر القلب ، فضيحة مدوية جديدة في كل يوم ، يتلقفها القارىء بجشع البطون الخاوية ، ليجد في تلك الاخبار ككل مرة ما لا يشبع وما…
