Okay, thanks, y'all.
Okay, what the hell's going on here?
In the past 10 days or so I've increased my fat intake by quite a bit and lowered my carb intake to less than 10 gm per day. During this time period I've seen...
Mostly walked, some jogging:
Max heart rate: 153 bpm
Avg. Heart Rate: 112 bpm
For reasons unimportant here, I indulged my baser culinary whims yesterday with alcohol and sugary treats. Today I am suffering the consequences.
Richard Nikoley has a really...

After more than a year of working in the oil fields of west Texas with bad internet connections, I've decided to pick up where I left off. The internet is...
I recently started making my own milk kefir. Though I primarily drink it for the gut flora and fauna, I am curious about the fat/protein/carb content. I have done a bit of research but,...
Hey, that's clever. I hereby warn you I will be plagiarizing you in future arguments with pinheads.

My internet connection is very bad on this well and on the next well it will be almost absent. I just don't have time to take notes each day and...

Days 95 through 101
Holy moly, it's been a week since I last posted. Time flies when one is having fun.
Let's see...finished that...
Yeah, it's a real drg.
I'll try to post a photo; she's black as the ace of spades and difficult to photograph.
It will be a while though; my computer crashed and burned. As I type this I have been setting up my new...
Wee Black Doggy is a Pommeranian (spelling?)-Toy Poodle mix according to the vet. Weighs about 7 lbs. I am normally not a pet person. I like dogs, always have. I've been around them literally all my...

Arg, got here to the well at noon. Back to the 12-hour shifts. We should finish this bugger early Wednesday morning.
Lunch was a can of sardines,...

I am currently at home. The drilling is slow so my partner and I decided we would get away from the well for 24 hours each. He went into town yesterday...

Lunch today was grass-fed ground beef with picante sauce, sauteed onion, and yogurt.
So was supper.
Nope, it won't explode but it is radioactive which is why everyone got spooked several years ago when the media sensationalized it several years ago. I vaguely remember radon is a gas given off by...
The only thing I know about radon is it is the result of decayed uranium. It is also, I think, an inert gas.

Chocolate protein shake, added a vegetable powder and two egg yolks.
I tried some of those St. Louis Style ribs. Even for...
Yes, the gas can feed back into the borehole and cause problems. One of the roughnecks keeps track of the weight of the drilling fluid to make sure it doesn't drop too low.
The permanent fix is...
In this part of the world most of the cost is just due to downtime; the oil company still must pay the daily rate while they suppress the kick.
The most common way to kill a gas kick is to...

I arrived back at the well at 7:00 p.m. They completed repairs and were testing the equipment, readying to go back into the hole with the drill...

Left the well this morning at 4:00, arriving at the house at 6:00 a.m. After dragging my laundry into the house I sat and drank a Guinness Extra Stout.

Well, cool. This evening the drilling rig had a bit of a problem and had to shut down. While they were waiting for a repair crew the well "kicked." That is, a gas...
Well, my stomach used to be made of iron. Back in the day my go-to pepper was habanero. I ate it with everything and even made my own picante sauce and hot sauce with them. They are hot of course but...
