Trials & Tribulations; One Man's Journey to Get a Seat Aboard That Train!


By Paul at 7:04 pm on Tuesday, July 31, 2007

It’s true what they say. time flies when you are having fun. now I don’t know what “Fun” I have been having but the time is surely Flying!! I am on graveyard shift at work these days and I also work Saturday’s at a Mill as a Millwright. and golly! time does fly when you have a lot of work to do.  Lately at work I have been building stairs from simple 6 foot long ones that are 4-5 feet wide, to Long as 21 feet and 10 feet wide. take a lot of time on them sometimes but like I said time sure flies when you are busy working on them. But where the hell has July gone.? I don’t even remember when July Started and now it’s already OVER!!!

Well August is a great month anyway, as my b-day is August 10th and we have BC Day too. This year it falls on the 6th and I can’t wait to have that time off finally. A four day work week will be nice and the Saturday mill time will go ok cause I don[t have to be at my weekly place till Monday night. Hopefully August won’t just “FLY” by without some posts in here.

On another front My Wife’s paperwork is finally complete and mailed out, we are expecting a reply within a week or two on when she can get her Visa to come to Canada. I will keep you posted on that as I know more.

One final note, I want to thank the regulars that do check my blog on a daily basis and to those new readers I do get and eventually lose due to a lack of content. Time is not on my side currently but I will be working on getting a few minutes a day to post something (if nothing else) My daily activities might be just what the internet doctor ordered.

Thank you for reading. (Hi Gerry!!)

made a June entry

HAHA!  yeah well you can say what you will…..  But I have been working 6 days a week….  and sometimes 10 hours per day. John Chow will have you believe I am wasting my time and I should get out of the rat race and do what he does. Well I have only a few things to say about that, one main thing is, if we ALL did what John Chow does….  there would be No John Chow “Internet Mogul”  to speak of. If we all did what he does there would be no home for John to buy or the new car he wants to buy because there would be no one building houses or making cars, there would be no grocery stores for him to go and buy food from, and god forbid no more restaurants for him to go have his $400+ meals at.

We all do what we do, and THAT is what makes the world go round, that is what allows us to have a LIFE! sitting at home on your computer and earning advertisement dollars is a GREAT thing for a few…..  but we need all the rest of us doing our part to make the JOHN CHOWS of this world be able to spend their millions…..  Now don’t get me wrong….  John Chow is actually a personal friend of mine I have nothing against him at all….  I applaud him on his success and what he does (and he does it very well I might add). but we can’t all do it…. or the world as we know it would come to a grinding halt and so would all those millions he enjoys if we “ALL” did what he does.

Need I say more.??  pfft…..

Huh??? “Related Posts”??

By Paul at 8:48 pm on Saturday, January 20, 2007

Someone please explain to me how this “Related Posts” feature works…  I mean how can you have One post related to another yet when you go to that post to read it it doesn’t link back to the original post as a “Related Post”… 


I mean have a look at this….  “My time at George Third & Son” is related to “I got the Job!!”


Yet when you read the “I Got The Job!!” post, it has “No related posts”. 


I’m no expert on how this all works or anything but it can’t be right..  Can it.???
