Working in Remote Locations.

Today I worked in a remote location. A place, where wilderness surrounded me. Nothing but fog, and rain followed me all day. 40 minutes away from a hospital. With a gray, fenced in location, with some industrial equipment in the area. Checking several systems, to ensure they were all ready to go. Maybe it is not that remote, but it sure felt like it...

We always wonder about working alone. Companies, always give the advice to keep a radio on your person. If you should fall, or get hurt, you can radio in for help. True enough, and as many times as I possibly can, I take a radio with me. Sometimes, I do forget, to take a radio. We are only human, after all.

But, there more new ways to be seen as technology comes with new ideas to help with people working in remote locations. A device that you can wear, that if you stay still for too long of a period, will sound an alarm. Nobody sleeps on the job these days, anyways! It will generate a call, to somewhere. People will come hopefully looking. I seen this done, as advertised on TV, with seniors who are alone. I think it is more, of  a fall apparatus. Nonetheless, the idea is there.

There is also electronic devices you can place on your ear, after you work a long night shift. The alarm will beep loudly, if your eyes begin to shut. It just works on the motion of your head, tilting forward. A good idea.

There are some ways around certain bad elements of our workplaces. There is no substitute for two working in a remote location. Just that it is more safe, and electronic gadgets can fail too. But, money savings by companies are to be had. Sometimes, they can still create allot of false alarms. More worry, for no worry. Soon an electronic phone will be enough, to send a signal when a person falls and does not get up. Will the ambulance get their in time, working in a remote location? We still got to charge, buy new batteries, for the things. I am their slave.

Did not even have time to work on my First Draft today... Have a good evening, till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
