Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

I am married and have seven children and twenty grandchildren. I retired January 1, 2010 after working 39+ years for the Forest Service...NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE HAS BEGUN!

Unfortunately they found the four missing miners dead. They had passed three of them several times going in and out of the mine but just didn't see them because of the smoke. TOUGH, TOUGH Life those miners live so that we can have all the power we want. My heart goes out to the families.

The focus now turns to recovery---gotta be tough on those that worked so hard on the rescue. It is difficult to change points of view when you are dealing with life and death.

That is so disheartening. I really feel for their families, and for those who tried to hard to rescue them.

How sad! I was hoping they could get to them in time. Thank you for posting about this.

I have been following another blogger who is from the area, seems to be doing some pastor type work, but also is involved in mining investigations at some level.

Looney--I only did these updates because Nene couldn't read about it in Ireland--I just hit the high spots asnd didn't try to cover all of the actions that were going on.
