Mentally Drained

I haven't blogged regularly for a long time now. But I just thought I'd write a bit about my work. Yeah, I'm mentally drained from what went on at work tonight. You see, I've been the Major Model trainer for my shift at work for almost a year now. That is to say that when we get a new car to build, I'm trained first, then I train everybody else in my unit. A few months ago, I got some help in the form of the Major Model trainer from our 2nd shift. This person has been a very big help to me and has learned the whole operation on our line during this time. These last few weeks though, we have been working split shifts in order to train all those on our 2nd shift. The shift supervisor has been there during the whole time. But, some of the people on this shift have been difficult if not impossible to train. Not to mention that tonight we ran a practice car to get the 2nd shift people familiar with it and this was the first time he had walked through to see what was actually done with it. Top this off with my now having to work another split shift tomorrow to run another car on 2nd shift because the supervisor thought his people weren't as well trained as they should be. Drats!!! Oh well, at least they didn't try to find fault in the methods we have used to train the people there. It's just getting to be a mental drain with all that's been going on. Lots of work to do in the next couple weeks and now it seems to be more to do before it's over. I guess that's about all for now. Just thought I'd do a post lol. Till next time BYE!!

New Home of Heads or Tails

For those who don't already know it, Heads or Tails has a new home. I've put the link here for those who would like to visit it. Or you can use the convenient link I have posted in the " Family" link section on my sidebar. Oh, I also have updated the link to Skittles' Place. If you have the old link on your blog, you will be redirected to the new site, but if you want, you can just click on the link on my sidebar and it will take you to her new site. Repetitive I know...but I thought I'd put it there just in case. Till next time BYE!!

Heads or Tails

The theme for this weeks meme is " Surprise".

Both Skittles and I got a pretty good surprise this weekend when we had a new digital recorder installed for our tv. The install of this recorder wasn't really the surprise though as we had called to get it installed a few weeks ago. The surprise was how neat this new toy was. We can now record programs or even entire series of programs. We also got a short lived surprise as we got some premium channels for the weekend that we didn't order with the new box. Plus after watching some of the neat programming, we ended up getting more programs so we can have more to watch. Talk about couch potatoes lol. At least it will get us out of the computer room more. So there you have it. Our small surprise. Till next time BYE!!

Heads or Tails

This weeks Heads or Tails meme is any part of (or place in) a home. For this weeks meme I'm going to post something that I got from work recently. It commemorates my 20 years of service to Fords. Originally I was hired in as a Mazda worker even though our main product was the Ford Probe. For those who don't know it, this plant was a joint venture between Ford and Mazda. Several years into working at the Mazda plant, we were asked if we would like to be covered under the Ford UAW agreement and the only way to do that was to become part of Fords, so we did. It has now been 20 years since I started working there and it is quite the accomplishment. I am now the Major Model Trainer for my unit which means I train people how to work on new products (cars) that we will be building. This includes the new 2009 Mazda6 that will be built at my plant starting in a few months. We've also been building the Ford Mustang for several years which has been a very good selling vehicle. I guess you're wondering where this is going huh? Well, the certificate I received last week will someday be gracing one of our walls. I've included a picture of my certificate here to show you what it looks like. I also got a watch to go along with it. Pretty neat I think. The time has certainly flew by. It sure doesn't seem like I've been there all that time. I've blocked out my last name to protect the innocent lol.

Till next time BYE!!

Heads or Tails

Ok, I cheated a bit with this weeks meme. This weeks meme however is "anything" green. So, I'll just use this for this week lol.

I got home this afternoon and Skittles had me try this little thingie that she found. It was quite interesting to do. One thing to remember is that you have to type all the colors in and you have to spell them correctly for them to count. I would have gotten 24, but I had included "blue" along with something that I hadn't spelled right and I just erased it lol. It's amazing how difficult it is to think of colors when you are timed at it.


Till next time BYE!!

Moon Travel Might Not Be My Thing

Skittles had this on her blog and she wanted me to try it to see how I would do. Apparently I didn't have the same answers that NASA does lol.
