Mushrooms in the Spring rain. That's sounds pleasant, doesn't it? Slow-moving wide loads of drilling equipment, big trucks crossing the double yellow line in the middle of U.S. Route 250, big hunks of mud and dirt in the road, numerous deep potholes--those aren't as pleasant.

If you aren't one who has received a bag full of money fro some drilling outfit, it is difficult to see the benefits.

Sorry to let you know but I am among those who has gotten the bags of money from the drilling . Quite happy to get it.. After all, I worked extremel hard all my life and finally I deserve some money.It makes me feel better now. I can afford to dress like a bum now ..I still buy my clothes and things for the house from yard sales. Now I don't make any differences in the way I was and the way I am now.
