      I can start off with some great news since the last journal entry we have gotten rid of the bad leadership and new operational manager is implamenting new policy he believes will make us more efficent. One of the major complaints that the officers that have been here since the begining is that they are getting burned out and don't have time to handle personal issues like banking and what not. Now keep inmind we are working 12 hours a day everyday, so keep us from snapping the leadership has implimented an new policy of work 30 days get 2 days off. This way we can do what we need and have some to explore the area. The leadership is also starting to get rid of the officers that have been causing problems, of course dome of them have been helping and just packing there stuff and leaving without telling anyone. The leadership also got us out of that horrible hotel, it looks like we are staying here for the duration. Which means I can give out the address to those that need it soon.

      So personally I have been moving around alot, I was on day shift at one location then the major wanted me on night shift to fill in for guys that we talking their two days off. One of the individuals was the night supervisor which is the Leutenant slot, I did the job so well that I got praise from the major and the rest of my leadership. It was also suggested to me that if they move this LT out of the deployment, which is a likely thing since he f-up on regular basis, that I would pickup the slack. Well when he came back and heard how great I did he felt threatened and started doing the high school bull sh t and trying to run me into the ground to the leadership. I'm not sure if it worked or not my leadership sent me to Panama City, FL for two days to work in a BP office as a precaution for the spokeperson. I did so well that the spokeperson wanted to keep as her permanent officer but a captain in the company was already slotted for that post so they brought me back to Orange Beach. So here I am on day shift again just sitting flying a kite and making no unauthorized personnel come into this staging area which is easy since their is alot of large equipment moving around most people won't come in because they are they will get run over also by now the word is out where the headquarters is so most just go there for the answers. As for the LT most of the night shift are fed up with him and want a change so we will see were that goes.

    • Well that didn't last long...

      So, after doing one shift in Mobile, AL my company got contracts to protect other sites east of Mobile in a town called Orange Beach, AL. Since my self and my partner where brand new to that post they felt that we could go without disrupting the fung shuei of the whole opertional team. So early in the morning Kervin and I headed to this new post to find some of the most F-ed up people. The office that is control of this region is the Pensacola office with most undisciplined security officers from our operational manager falling down a stairs because he was beleived to be drunk while on duty to officers that come on deployment upset that she doesn't have any privacy. I mean none of us has privacy a couple of lucky few are roomed with an officer that has a night shift while they are on days. One officer had gotten here and in last then tweleve hours got into a bad enough car accident that he had to stay in the hospital a couple days, now after everything it wasn't his fault he was stop at light a saw the car coming in his rearveiw mirror, but he jet sat there got hit. Another officer while on night shift allowed a boat to sink without letting anyone know; "Oops I'm sure it's not worth that much just a half a million or so". No big deal right? Anyway and of course you have the one mother f&$@er who regularly shows up late, now since I'm just starting out I have been trying to be a team player which most that know me; knows that is a hard thing for me especially with people that I can't just break them in half, anyway I got ass chewing from my chain of command for covering for this officer. So, now I think I'm going to just be myself and I they don't like that's at least I'll feel at the end I the day.

      As for my duties on site I was a list of policies the company moran that I'm supposed to enforce like no driving without yout seatbelt or no smoking in unapproved areas. I also protect the workers from possible threats from the local residents but since we are in an area where there is nothing but rich white folks that possiblity is less likely. This weekend the local residents were going to have a protest because the oil but they canceled because it was to hot. I guess the world isn't in as much danger as we thought, it can wait until the weather is cooler. And since this is Alabama that will probably be in November. The other thing is messed up with this area is that it is 99% white and when the moran company was looking for workers they pulled from Mobile and Pensacola which have a high level of Black and Hispanic populations, we almost had a major accident on the nearby road as the residents saw us unload the buses one resident stop and asked if the mayor was aware that we were bringing in those kinds of people. So I am currently living here having a time of my life (that was sarcasm Sean)

      Don't I enjoy working again but some if this crap. I didn't even get into the racist hotel manager. My leadership isn't happy about so they are trying to move us to a different hotel in the area, hopefully that will happen soon. I go I into that later so bye for now

      So, its been like a year since I put up a journal, mainly because after Ireland there hasn't been much going on with my day to day. I would spend most of my time sending out resume and filling out applications and of course being rejected over and over. So for the last year I have been sponging off the good will of my best friends. However, after a long year I have landed an excellent job and now have the ability to start paying them back what I owe. I have had the job for just a week and the company has already sent me to Mobile AL, So while I'm here I'm going to check out the area and be a little tourist thing. Of course I'm going to be working 12 hour days everyday it's not like I'm going to be doing it too much; but the company I work for has rented me my own car and put me up in a very nice hotel. So far I don't have a thing to complain about.

      Ok its been five days but that doesn't mean much since it took two days to get here. and that was us getting to all our planes on time. Unfortunately our luggage was not so lucky, we were in country wearing the clothes on our back for four days. but that didn't stop us from having fun, we just had toga partiesat night so that mom could do laundry so we can have the same clean clothes for the next day. They did locate our luggage but it showed up in Cairo; yeah that's in Eygpt. I was not as excited as my family but maybe that becuse I have alrteady been there and know how much of a "lovely" graden spot it is. Especially as I take a picture of the shpinx in the parking lot of a pizza hut. So far we have checked out most of western and southern part of the country.

      In feburary I was forced to quit my job with werner because I wasn't making enough money to even live on the road and pay my bills at the same time. For the last few months I have trying to get a job doing anything from insurance call center to working mc donalds. Couldn't get a job with any of them. One excuse was that I was leaving the country for two weeks to go to ireland. So hopefully when i get back I'll have better luck with job searching.

      This morning I tried to get the load information to this little trip of 175 miles, but the computers are down and it finally took 4 hours for me to get enough information to start the trip. Now, of it being a Saturday I had to show up between 7:00am to 10:00am because after they close the loading dock for the weekend. Since it was noon when I rolled out of St. Louis, IL I don’t think I was going to make it, and told Werner so; which didn’t make them happy and wanted me to go there and verify. I did as the Company asked and of course closed when I showed up; but since there was not any facilities or anything around, I decided to leave and go to the nearest truck stop about ten minutes south of the destination. So now I’m shutdown like I would have been with the Houston load but don’t have the miles. It looks like another $300 pay check this week. Monday morning I was able to unload the trailer, and they specifically told my dispatcher that after 10:00am Saturday they would close up for the weekend so not send me until Monday morning.

      I got this load after I finished the one Minooka, IL and was extremely happy; this was a long haul and would get me into the miles that I was promised when hired, of 2k to 2500 miles a week. However, after doing the trip planning and figuring that I could get there in plenty of I would even have a 34hr shut down in Houston to work on a drawing that my father had given several days earlier. I was alerted by the company that I needed to run to St. Louis, IL to swap with a driver that needed to go home. I showed up to the St. Louis drop yard at about 8:00 pm thirty min before the designated time, and because I had started so early that morning I barely made it before my DOT time ran out. The other driver didn’t so up until after midnight and yes she going home but her home was 30 miles from the destination of her load which is outside of Chicago. So, she left that the yard with an empty and left the load to Houston there.

      This trip was un eventful except for the fact that the Kellogg company could use a lighted sign to make it easier to see the truck entrance. Werner of course told me wrong about the load it was a drop and hook not live unload. But that was a nice surprise I would have been in and out there in a couple of minutes if it weren’t for me taking almost 30 minutes to put the trailer in the wrong space and then realized it I put it in the correct one and grab the empty and left. Other than that nothing to mention, except that this is another load that was less than 200 miles.

      This is the swap load that followed the Cedar Rapids fiasco, since it took the team truck 8 hrs to get to me and give over their trailer I had ran close to running out hours luckily I only had to take the trailer to the Werner drop yard at West Branch, IA. Which was about 2 ½ hrs away, after verifying my hours, I still had three hours on the 14 hr work I sped over to the drop yard and manage to get the trailer checked just before I out of time today. So we will have to see what’s in store for tomorrow.

      I found the work out that each actor did for the movie 300.

      * 25 pull-ups
      * 50 deadlifts at 135 pounds
      * 50 push-ups
      * 50 box jumps with a 24-inch box
      * 50 "floor wipers" (a core and shoulders exercise at 135 pounds)
      * 50 "clean and press" at 36 pounds (a weight-lifting exercise)
      * 25 more pull-ups -- for a total of 300 reps

      that is it.
      According to the article here, you do it for between 90 minutes to 2 hours. Your "score" is based on how long it takes you to complete it. You think you can do that work out twice a day every day for 12 weeks?

      I can safely and confidently say i do not suffer from nomophobia. I rarely used my phone, so the charge never ran out. It was in my pocket all the time, so i never lost it. There's a tower within site of the house, so i never lose the signal. I don;t want work being able to call me whenever; even if i did, that's why we have a house phone. NomoPhobia--no mo' a problem for me!

      I'm having a number of problems with the show.
      I like the concept of going back and completing the Sarah Connor story arc, which was what T3 should have done.
      However, I'm disappointed the writers are having so much trouble grasping Terminator time-travel rules.
      I feel like the show shouldn't just be about pretending to stop Skynet and John high school troubles.
      I'm also not entirely comfortable with bringing the whole Christian Apocolypse into Terminator. It just doesn't feel right.

      The show has however still remained relatively interesting and I'm hoping it will get better as it goes on.

      DIRECTIONS

      1. In a large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter or margarine until creamy. Add the sugar, and beat until mixed well. Beat in egg and mint extract.
      2. Sift flour, cocoa, and salt together into a small bowl. Add flour mixture by halves into creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.
      3. Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface roll dough into two 1 1/2 inch diameter cylinders. Wrap each cylinder in waxed paper, and refrigerate 5 hours.
      4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Thirty minutes prior to baking, place both cylinders in freezer.
      5. Remove one cylinder at a time, and slice 1/4 inch thick pieces with very sharp knife. Place on cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
      6. Melt 1/4 cup butter or margarine and the semisweet chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Drizzle over warm cookies. Place on wire racks, and let cool and harden completely.
