I was just wondering if any of the miners from hard coal are still working or if any of the mines that were closed have reopened. I know some of ya'll from up that way have said that some new mines have opened and msha had let up a little.

Maybe we should again try to get a copy or two of the DVD.

Ah Jayzus! It's on Amazon Prime too! If yous have a Roku Box and get Amazon Prime you can watch this for free! I just cued it up. Thanks for saying it was available at Amazon, I went to just buy the DVD and noticed you can stream it. :D

Yeah I watched it on prime before I got my hardcopy. There were several copies available at astronomical prices, the cheapest I saw was like 60 bucks. I just checked every day and finally found a brand new copy for less than 30 :D

That's awesome. I'll probably get a copy too. The fox and raccoon are fed, going to get the cats to bed, grab a couple two-tree bot-uhls of beer and head up to watch it now.

That sounds healthy. Did they get the issues worked out with MSHA?
