My Major Career Change

Well after 7 years at working for Progeny Systems, I have moved on and took a different path for a job. I am now working for Pacific Drilling as an Electronics Technician onboard one of their Deep Sea Drilling rigs, the Pacific Meltem which is pictured below:

I started on April 8th, 2014 and was flown out to Geoje, South Korea where the boat is currently finishing up being built at Samsung Shipyard. This is my first time in South Korea and I must admit it is an eye opener but I am loving it so far. The crew of the rig is outstanding and definitely take care of each other. I have a few other pictures below to share and I hope you enjoy them. I will be sure to keep posting to show everyone just how amazing this place is and I hope to hear what you think about it.

 Coming along side as the rig is currently moored out in the harbor. We have to take a ferry each day to get out to the rig to work.

Stretching Your Dollars at the Pump

I can’t believe this and they get away with price gouging. Makes you wonder who the owner is since he is unwilling to comment, probably is from the Middle East over here on a free ride. Sorry but this kind of thing just really upsets me and it effects all of us.

Gordon gets belated return to victory lane - NASCAR - Yahoo! Sports

My hat off to Jeff Gordon and his entire team on a fantastic race yesterday. It didn’t appear at first that Jeff had what it needed to win the race but he got up to the front and never looked back. Oh there were a few flubs on pit row but the team overcame them and charged right back up to the front.

In the closing laps Kyle Busch could not keep Gordon from getting the lead back and taking home the win from Phoenix. I know there are a lot of Gordon haters out there but you know what, this guy still has what it takes to win races and perhaps this could be his season for the “Drive for Five”.

Oil price passes $99 per barrel - Yahoo! Finance


Oh great, here we go again with the rise in gasoline prices. With the problems over in Libya, the stock market is seeing its effect and all of us will be feeling it very soon. It is expected that gas prices will hit close to $5.00 a gallon by summer time. Sounds like we have to start looking at drilling our own oil and you know what that means right, we might have to start looking at Alaska or looking at alternate means of getting around because I don’t know about you but $5.00 a gallon is going to hurt the pocket. I do remember the rise in gas back in 2008 and that hurt but it did not last that long but it was under different circumstances. There are just too many “what ifs” about what is going on over in the Middle East.

What are your thoughts?

Fryer's Five: Bayne better off racing for N'wide title - NASCAR - Yahoo! Sports


I agree with what Jenna says about Bayne in staying in the Nationwide Series. He needs to develop his skills in that series before stepping right into the big shoes. He has a lot of potential and with the right training he will definitely become a top level driver in the Sprint series.  Keep an eye out for this kid in the years to come.
