Nuke School 8106, 1st outage at SONGS 1984. I remember my first day at SONGS training. Todd Mobley handed me a check. I said "What's this for?" He said it's per diem. "What's per diem?"

Remember who you love. Remember what is sacred. Remember what is true.
Remember that you will die, and that this day is a gift. Remember how you wish to live, may the blessing of the Lord be with you

March 1980 at Turkey Point w/ Atlantic.
 Steve Romanowicz was the IRM GET Instructor who threw things in class to keep us awake and later that week Brad Oliver (Wackenhut Guard) red badged us.
 The SG ISI outage was scheduled during the end of the first quarter of the year and the beginning of the second quarter so we could receive up to 3 Rem in each quarter.
Those were the good old days.

1977- Duke Power's first HP training class @ McGuire TTC. Richard Wilson and Les Stallings were our instructors. Not many from that class are still in the business-didn't think I'd still be teching, but here I am at ONS. Just started another outage and trying to make it to the end. Retirement is sounding better and better!

1984 at North Anna. Have worked D&D since 1994. Haven't been laid off a day since. Man, I miss those summers and winters off. Maybe I am just tired. And yes I am a lurker.
