Anyhow I was over on Expo Portal and there was a guy that found this speach from Mike Rowe on Workers and what he thinks.
It is a really well thought out speach on the value of physical work.

Enjoy

I wonder how long it will take me to get that lamb visual out of my head.

Could be a while, I watched it yesterday evening and it ran through my dreams all night. :lmao: I enjoyed watching the speech.

Widespread Panic - Expiration Day (http://mog.com/music/Widespread_Panic/%C3%9Cber_Cobra/Expiration_Day)

Lyrics by Vic Chesnutt

I'm a machinist at the Springfield armory
Just slightly ahead of my time
But I don't make much money
So I sell eggs and chickens on the side

I'm good at what I do
And I take great pride
But I don't make much money
So I sell eggs and chickens on the side

And my wife does love me
But she can't realize
Why I won't go back down south
And leave the armory behind

But I love my job
I'll shave metal until I die
And until I do, I'll take on
Any extra thing it takes to provide

And I know it'll kill me
Breathing all those fumes
But I'd sooner sniff solution
Than a baker's dozen hothouse blooms

And my wife does love me
But she can't realize
Why I won't go back down south
And leave the armory behind

But I feel it is important
What I do upon my lathe
I pledge to do the detail work
Until my expiration day
Until my expiration day
Until my expiration day
Until my expiration day
