    Hate what CA has become. Anyway. It is not just the immigrants. A lot of it is policy for aid. We still have a rash of folks that are homeless or just plain lost about everything and are under employed. Remember that bubble thingy not so many years ago when real estate crashed and people lost home on bad loans. Yeah, we are still feeling that here. Look up homeless in SF or LA. Plenty of news there. A lot of industry has fled the state as well since it is so expensive to have a business here.

    As I recall; you made cash arrangements, had the procedure done and paid it out right, only to receive another bill you had to dispute.

    Yup! You have to visit to understand it. Or grow up around it or live there. Some of those streets are beyond steep. They laugh at 8% grades. I bet people blow equipment motors from oil starvation on some of them.

    No. There came a point in my life I ended up poorly and had to let it go.

    I believe if you really want and need to work, most likely you will find something. May not always be want you know or want .....but. There was one time in MA during the 80s that finding work was extremely difficult for me. I had worked my way up to press operator in a factory. When the factory was purchased by an overseas company, a lot of us lost our jobs. A lot of people lost jobs back then in other areas of mfg. Robotics and computers took some of them. Automation. And there was a recession going on. Less product needed to be mfg. I took the unemployment while I looked. Buggered my toe on a lawn mower and the temp disability helped. Then they had a program to retrain me through the unemployment office after my toe healed. State paid all my wages except .50 per hour by a company willing to train me. I can't remember for how long. But obviously cheaper at min wage for the unemployment insurance and it gave me work and a new trade that paid better later. Not near what I made at the previous factory, but enough for the time coupled with a part time gig I put together for myself. Seemed a good program for the times.

    That is how right to work is in AZ. Easier to find another job than get unemployment. I was able to join a plumbers union though. But the shop I worked for was non union. So it was more of a learn here thing, and maybe we can find you work later.

    Those are both great reads...the first had this "consequential line"... For someone to go from Katchatka to Paris???? Hard to imagine that was even possible back then. The distance is 8146 km (5061 miles). That must have been a helluva story, too. Edit...it WAS. I just found this. Lesseps actually did make the journey...he ended up being the only survivor of the original mission. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barth%C3%A9lemy_de_Lesseps

    The tractor lifted the tree and the winch moved it off the house enough that the tractor could lower it...or vice versa. Anyway, it worked.:D The pucker factor was pretty high.

    Good stuff, Grapple...thanks for sharing. Here is a big block (for me) that we used at Katrina. My brother in law (holding it for the picture) borrowed it from an oil rig company. We needed to run wire rope thru it to lift a tree off a house..no cranes available. Some pictures:

  1. Yeah, thanks....we can all learn something if we are open to it. Brian has issues, I reckon...I'll just let him stew and work out his own way to be involved.

    I enjoy your posts...glad to have you at the House.
