Hi all , sorry to hear of your problems . All I hear from the gov. is they want you to spend spend spend go into the banks for money . I believe that what got us in this spot the gov. had the bank loan money to people who could not pay it back, so we all have to pay it ( only working tax paying working people ) O well lets not go there .

Yep.. We are still doing the 1 week off a month deal.. Prob for the rest of the year.. Our contract expired last Saturday so hopefully they will have that worked out before we go back to work this Sunday.. No massive concessions is what Im pulling for..

On a better note the stock market has pulled up the past couple of weeks.. Now if we could only get Washington to quit spending our money before we even send it to them we may start to climb out of this junk in a couple decades..

We went down to 50% production of sulfuric acid. We are now running 85% which is pretty good. Acid use is a good indicator of how hard the gas refineries are running. 401-K is turning up so thats a good thing.

I really hate to hear about this stuff happening to people. And its extremely frustrating to see so many people really high up actually making things worse to drum up support for their agenda. Depressing.

the Army will take whoevers willing. Youre over 18 and under 40 we'll take ya. Job security right there. Although I doubt that the defense budget is safe for very much longer. Its already taken one hit, im sure there are many to come.

And BTW to any and all who are interested, if it really gets bad up there. There is daily talk in the news locally that our job market is very strong in Texas, especially in the San Antonio metro area. We're actually still growing. Check it out. Texas is riding out the reccession alot better than the rest of the country. There are no closed shops so union membership isnt required plus very few TX based banks took part in the sub prime market and even fewer took bailout money so there is actually credit too.
