Proof Read

It pays to proof read before you post an article on the Internet, because I get in a hurry sometimes and forget to do so leaves me looking like a real dummy by making simple errors such as I when I'm was need like in the post before this on!

I have read a few dozen sites in the past few days and on each one I noticed minor errors which can in somecases change the whole meaning of what your tring to get accross.

So from now on I'm going to really try not to mess up my posts very much, I'm sure from time to time that i'll mess up every now and again.

Short Time

I down to just four more days until I go home. I'm finishing up my trip working in Harahan Fleet on one of the tugs. It's kind of fun getting to do stuff that I normally get to don't get to do.

I started working days for about nine days and now I'm on nights finishing out my hitch. It's a real change of pace for me to work on a tug and sleep on a line boat (Larry Strain) when I'm so use to working 6 hour shifts on big boats to working straight 12 on a tug.

Anyway I'm going home to see my wife and kids soon, the sooner the better because I'm missing a lot of my boys baseball games! I'm looking forward to seeing them win a few more games, of course I'm happy to just see then play win or not.

Getting a little sleepy sense we are just about done in the fleet and it's only 12:15 am, come on 5:00 am so I can go to bed and have another day out of the way.

I may take a trip when I get home. Booking everything is simple using the tools on my new website check it out and see for yourself book a hotel, rental car, cruise, flight, and more.

I am also working on a membership site once everything gets running like it should! I'm trying to use WordPress MU to allow members to setup their own blogs, upload photos and videos, download member only content like ebooks, post in the forum, and have each blog served with my adsense and clickbank ads!

It's no small feet but it seems to be working alright in the sandbox but I still have some issues to workout on the homepage and membership side.

Well I guess that's enough for now, I'll post more often now that I have an iPhone which makes blogging on the go simple. So simple that a caveman can do it (as the Giako commercials say)!

Loosing Sleep

We are Southbound on the Mississippi River it's a little after 7 and I'm having a hard time going to sleep!

You see I'm on a boat headed to Harahan to be tied-up and we should have been there around 7 am but we had delay in Armant fleet so now when we get there in about an hour or so I'll have been up for 21 hours.

I have to get on another boat when we get there so the sooner the better because it'll take me about an hour to change boats, another hour or two to get to sleep if there is clean linen and no delay providing I can even go to sleep after being on the back watch!

Anyway I have to be up a 5 am or before so I can eat and get on a tug to learn to work the fleet for 12 hours a day for no telling how many days. Well it won't be real long because I'm due off on the 17th unless I get lucky and they let me work until the 20th or so because I need the extra days!
