Why? Because without tradesmen, we would be in the dark ages, and if we dont encourage our kids to work with their hands and their brains, we will soon be there. The Dark Ages that is. I am a heavy…Continue

Jacob Salber replied to Chris Hamm's discussion Who Wears a Watch Anymore?
"I have worn a watch for so long now that its neither part of my dress or a mere time keeper, it is a part of ME. I feel very odd if I dont have the old Timex strapped on. Plus, Its easier just to glance down and check the time instead of having…"

"I plan to, Jacob. Our country is becoming flooded with educated stock clerks because schools encourage EVERYONE to get a bachelor's degree, which has created a glut of educated young people competing for the same jobs.  It may be the right…"

Encourage your children to learn a trade

Why? Because without tradesmen, we would be in the dark ages, and if we dont encourage our kids to work with their hands and their brains, we will soon be there. The Dark Ages that is. I am a heavy equipment mechanic by trade, and it has supported me and my family for the last 10 years. It also opened up opportunities that other wise I would'nt have been able to take. I am now working in West Africa for a large Caterpillar equipment dealership. I have seen several interesting and exciting…See More

Profile Information

Interests
First and foremost, my kids are the most interesting part of my life. I enjoy tinkering in the garage with whatever the days projeect might be. Cars, motorcycles, bikes. I am a firm believer in fine Kentucky bourbons and cold beers enjoyed in the company of close freinds.
Books
I am usually drawn to Hunter S. Thompson, but I will read just about anything. I recently started reading my old Calvin and Hobbes books from my childhood with my daughter, and I find them more enjoyable now than ever before. Very funny and full of little life lessons.
Movies
Hands down, Raising Arizona has to be my all time favorite. Anything by Tarantino (of course), good comedies. Yes, I enjoy movies.
Music
I am really into the Alabama Shakes right now, but I enjoy most types of music. I grew up on classic rock and 90's country, but my teenage years were spent blowing my ears off with the like of The Misfits, Social Distortion, Johnny Cash, The Murder City Devils. Things like that. When I am feeling a bit nostalgic, I will play any one of these and jam out in the garage.

I've carried this as a montra with me at work and in life. Actions always speak louder than words.

Hello from KY!

Hey, guys! I'm Nick. I've been reading AoM for a few years now, and I'm very excited to be diving into the community. I'm heading into my freshman year of college this fall, and if the good Lord is willing and the Creek don't rise, I'll be pursing a Civil Engineering degree. I hope to enjoy some great discussion with you guys and improve as a young man. See More

"Josh I started at 265 and I am now 247 after 90 days. It isn't much but I am building. I never say good luck, but I will say don't give up!"

Wynne replied to SB's discussion What is success?
"Success is completing the mile with the perception that you will complete the many miles to go. Just keep setting relevant goals and involve the people closest to you. I can relate to the 70 hour weeks, it sounds like you were a champion for your…"

Wynne replied to Jay D's discussion How long do i wait till i ask for (another) raise?
"If you are currently making less than the position would pay for a new hire. It is appropriate to ask for a raise within 90 days. It should not take an employer more than 90 days to determine if you deserve a wages in line with your position."

Carl Monster replied to Brandon's discussion Over-dressing-- How inappropriate is this?
"Dress nicely, but also have a little fun. That's what will break the ice with people. I can't tell you have many times I've been at a function and someone will approach me and say they love something about what I've chosen to…"
