We were looking for the 2500hd suburban for a new rescue truck at work. After looking at the state bid they did not have it listed and we spoke to a vender that said they dont make them any more.

Landing a MBU3T Casing Head last night with some 13-3/8 casing hanging off it. Then after cement I put the companion flanges and valves on...of course I was playing I mud and wet cement. Then I came back to the shop and went home for the day

We have a little bit of boom in the air at Plant B. Boom point is 570' at high boom. Grade is 10'6". 92m main + 63m luffer on our twin boom ringer.

Yeah I have been in both of those plants. Did Lyondell Refinery last year. We had the crawlers cranes in the FCCU turn around along with the jack and slide of various other stuff.

Went to DOW OCD for Olin to look at mat pad layout for CC2800 picking out a tank next month. 220' radius for the tank.

Have Turn around in April for DOW OCD 9 vessels that need to be removed and replaced. None of which are straight picks. All have to be jacked up and slid out to the crane for removal. Oh what fun.

I couldn't imagine what it takes to do picks like that at a plant. I get enough headaches just digging a 4' deep ditch opposed to one that's 3'11" that no one bats an eye at.

The duct bank is concrete and shallower. Trench is 8í wide total 3íx 6í deep for the water/ sewer then it steps up and then back down for the duct bank. Itís a cluster F but thatís what they wanted

Had the day off today.

1) Still no cavities in my toofisisis.

2) Found a driveline shop to weld my shock brackets and axle tubes on the 9.5 for the 1/2 ton.

3) Visited my daughter at college. I am finding I really miss her at home. But..she's dean's list, she has many friends, and she's turning into a wonderful, confident woman. I couldnt be happier for her. Oh yeah, her pompon team took 3rd at States. Thats very good. Only MSU and an allstar team beat them.

My Cruze gets 45mpg on the highway. Yay!

Awesome to hear! Tell her to enjoy college life, just not TOO much..... if you get my meaning. Also, be careful...there are predators out there that prey on college girls. Roofies at parties are commonplace.
