    I work part-time. But since the Lottery Gods haven't blessed me yet, I am now looking for a full-time job since we need to save for college and retirement -which is scarey closer than we think!

      I work at the factory that builds the Chevy Sonic and Buick Verano. Thanks to those that have bought or leased one!!!

      I will quit playing the lottery, as soon as I break even.

                I,too, journeyed as a CNC programmer for many years (Punch press and double turrent lathe).  My main job was to close factories.  I have worked in six factories over the last 40 years.  Each one closed up shop after I was hired.  Anybody have a factory they want gone?  I have a lots of experience in that area.

                    That happened to me one summer on drilling rigs;  I went to work for five different drilling outfits and each time I went through all the hardest work at the end of the well only to have the rigs stack out after finishing the hole.

                    I read your post and the other about being a machinist, then checked my reader to see if any new articles had arrived and this one was there,  from a favorite old photo blog, thought you might find it interesting.  Click the photo for larger size. Machinist

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                          Hey, I think I worked in that shop.  The dirt looks familiar.

                            Hey, I think I worked in that shop.  The dirt looks familiar.

                            I worked for Cabot's machine division for about six months, running huge lathes that turned gun barrels for tanks and ships and drill collars for the drilling industry.  A friend was working on a lathe about a hundred feet away and was hurrying to clean up right before quitting time b/c he and I were going to a party as soon as we got off work.  He was wearing a long sleeved shirt not tucked in and it got wrapped up in the spinning fast travel bar (think it was called, that's been decades ago) and messed him up big-time.   That was one of the major influences in my decision to quit and go work on drilling rigs;  they were dangerous too, but paid more.

                            I like the smell of machine shops - the cutting oil, the freshly cut steel and the ozone of the electric motors.   I'm weird, I know.

                              Funny thought just crossed through my mind:- l recall my Dad watching this one movie awhile ago and someone said " l love the smell of Napalm in the morning"..He always got a chuckle out of that line. .* Don't recall the title of the movie though.
