December 8th--Ground Breaking
It was a good day. Progress at site, Finally. I showed up with my Father-In-Law (Butch) in tow along with a load of insulated concrete forms (www.ecoblock.com, 2x6 footing forms, rebar, and $1300 worth of frost blankets. Mark and Bernie Kelly were already there. They are a bit of a success story too. Both of them worked underground at Stillwater Mine. I had the good fortune of starting my underground carreer with both of them and I feel that I owe a lot to them for keeping me alive for that critical first year. Now to get the chance to work with them in the sunlight is a real treat. They are a real class act.
