    Yep.

    The plant produced its first bit of re-refined oil base on Monday at about 4PM. That meant that all of the electrical controls and instrumentation that I installed (some with extensive modification......lol) did just what it was intended to do.

    I guess I'll have to get used to 40 hour weeks now, instead of the 7-10s and 12s I worked at the plant.

    I guess I'll also have to get used to normal paychecks too, instead of ones with a ton of overtime.

    The sort of bittersweet part is that this is the first plant of this nature ever built. There are several large companies watching it very carefully. If it does what it is supposed to do, (it very likely will) there will be plenty more built in various parts of the country.

    Until we get the controls and instrumentation dialed in to where we can produce accurate drawings I doubt they'll let anyone else do the work.

    So I may very well be out of town for a while sometime in the future.

    For now though, we're once again modifying the original plant (20 minutes from my house), so I'll be home for a while. I think we've built that plant 3 or 4 times in the last few years, but this is new technology that's never been tried. So a certain amount of modification is to be expected......

    It's sure good to be home though!

    Re: RCMC# 121: Life is a highway... with friends along for the ride!

    My tenant came home yesterday, and assumed that someone was in her bedroom checking out the ceiling where the leak was. Nope. No one was up there. I guess her cats must have figured out how to open the door. They are persistent little creatures. Especially when they see a closed door, and want to get behind it.

    My house smells like onions. That's what I get for cooking chili yesterday.

    By the end of the day, I should have 2 estimates for fixing that ceiling. I sure hope they're reasonable, so I don't have to make more phone calls.

    Happy Monday.

    The one contractor cancelled on me. Then I called a 3rd guy, who is on his way. Now, I am hoping that I don't end up with 2 contractors at my house at the same time. That would be embarrassing.

    My tenant's ceiling definitely has a mold problem. Now I need to take care of that, as well as the plumbing issue, which we aren't really sure of until we cut a hole in the ceiling.

    The cards keep falling down, or as I like to call it the domino effect.

    Re: RCMC# 121: Life is a highway... with friends along for the ride!



    Been a busy day.... spent some time at Home Depot sending pictures to daughter of light fixtures. Looks like we will have to replace 3 of them in the mobile. The one in the kitchen is weird, and we would never find replacement bulb covers. Then the sconces in the living room, they replaces one of them with some weird outdoor lighting thing. Daughter thought we could just find another to match the normal one. In a 45 year old mobile? Not likely. They aren't that expensive, I told her we'd just get new ones. Kept running into people I know at Home Depot so kept chatting and sweating since I'm still not 100% well. Got a pull tool thing to send to her so they can finish laying the laminate floor. Still can't get ahold of the guy to do the insulation so this weekend Clint will just get some and do it himself. Hopefully it will get them through the winter even though the blown insulation would be better but.... we can hope for a mild winter.

    Much more running around to do tomorrow.....

    And it looks like Barry is in the hospital again.... don't have any details but he was running a temperature earlier then posted something on FaceBook about the channels in the hospital!
