    Good morning, Bret and everyone.

    I'm hoping for a day of challenging diagnostics. It's one of the few things I can do right now that gets my mind to focus on something else.

    Oh sorry.....I had a 'local moment'.....forgot you Muricans don't know there's life beyond the 49th parallel.....(That's the USA/Canadian border latitude..) and the abbreviation for Alberta (that's a province in Canada that supplies you Muricans with 20% of your oil and 'bout 10% of your natural gas) is alta. Just like IL.
    The largest reserve of oil on the planet is the 'Athabasca Oil Sands' and it is often referred to as the 'oil patch'. It's mainly centered in Fort McMurray.....nicknamed Fort Mc MONEY...see below.
    A reefer mechanic with is TQ (trade qualification....a compulsory nationwide 4 year apprenticeship) will START at $150,000/yr.....and be flown in and out on 2 week rotations.
    A buddy of mine that just stepped into another job......with a few more TQs than me......accepted a wage of $24,000/ month.....yes, per month....
    Keep buying them gas guzzlers my Murican friends!! We love it.....but yer too late on the Keystone.....where shipping it to Asia for a better price after you bobbled it...

    If you go to FMcMoney, don't forget the three biggest impediments to wealth are booze, coke, crystal meth and hookers!!! Stay away from all of them!!

    Mostly weened myself off booze by my early 20's, smart enough to stay the F away from coke/meth, married and Christian, so no hookers.. More worried about guns and bikes

    You haven't been here for long.

    This is the un-hijackable thread.

    My apologies to everyone. The discussion has already been moved to other venues.. In any case, good morning Bret and everyone.
