I wouldn't admit to that.  My condolences

I think you're about to become a fan of Global Warming. The Idaho winters aren't nearly as bad as they used to be.

(Disclaimer:  YES!  I do know that their health department & OSHA inspections usually do NOT gain them kudo's, but...)

Papa Tom's makes a GREAT pizza!  Try the Red Baron (Sauerkraut on a pizza?) or (my personal favorite) Pepperoni-Pineapple-Jalapeno.

The most depressing place I ever worked or lived. A friend who still works at Ineel called yesterday to share with me that his neighbors in Idaho Falls called to inform him that his 7 year old would not be allowed to play with their kids because they did not go to their church. I probably don't have to spell out the name of the church, but if you work at Ineel,understand that this particular religion has great influence and it is VERY oppressive.

I can't say I ran into any problems like that w/ the Prevailing Church in the Area. While they have a life style very differant from mine, and they did try to convert me, they didn't discriminate against us for not joining 'their side.' Had a great time in Idaho, wish Bechtel had kept the contract.

the site is a pit.  wouldn't waste my time here since they took away perdiem.  who would want to work and live here is beyond me.  to those that are still there, my condolences.

YMMV

As far as INL work goes, AMWTP is better than most...still able to get some work done there.  Unfortunately, they seem to be sliding down the hill to become like all the rest.

I'm not in a hurry to get back to INEEL for any amount of money, but ,since you are there ,have you checked out B.J.'s Bayou in Roberts? Go for dinner some night while the alligators are eating white mice in the adjoining room. You'll wonder whether you really are in Idaho.

Sorry to say that BJ's has really gone downhill. A group of us were just there and the food was terrible. Plus some was not cooked and the choices were very poor. It was very dissapointing. Afterwards I heard that others had the same experience. Too bad.

I was at BJs about a month ago and the food was great. HMMM don't know... AMWTP is not a bad place to work.  Still paying diem.  EG&G has the contract hp work.  Bechtel only has a little over a year left on their contract.  Rumor mill say Energy Solutions wants it bad.  wait and see...

about clearance at ARP.  offered a job there thru marcom to start feb 19--the security forms were pretty much the same as when i got a doncaf clearance for the nuke shipyards years ago, but that took 3-6 months to get, yet marcom said these only take about 2 weeks.  how can an investigation company (hire.com) possibly get a check done in this time?  plus, if i were a former school or employer, i'd probably ignore any requests for records unless it were from a government organization.  i know it's only for site/bldg access, but do they really check all your info,  especially if the contractor really needs people?

It's actually possible to get decent live music in I.F. a few times each month. 

Vino Rosso (on 'A' across from the Willard Arts Center) has bands every weekend and most Thursdays (usually 7-9pm).  A mix of rock, folk, jazz...mostly covers, but an occassional singer/songwriter...  If you get a chance, go see 'The Sites' (fiddle instrumentals), 'Kevin Young' (sax jazz standards), 'Lost Dogs Gathering' (original & cover guitar-folk), or 'Soucek & Green' (jazz guitar instrumentals)...all have frequent gigs.  And don't miss 'Decades' (AKA 'Affection Collection') when they are playing! The venue website is http://vinorossoidaho.com/index.php?section=4      (Oh...I forgot to mention...they also have about 200 different beers to choose from!!!)  ;)


I've also caught a couple of acts at White Water Grill & The Cellar, but neither has a consistent schedule.

Los Albertos (the one on Woodruff, NOT the one on North Yellowstone Hiway!) makes a bacon breakfast burrito that is sometimes great...and sometimes BEST-EVER!  

(I love their red sauce, but the wife swears by the green.)




(And, 'yes' to Atomic Punk...the 'best-ever' does include 'Muchas Gracias'!)
