Hey Guys,

I just wanted to introduce myself. Im Don, from Dingmans Ferry, Pennsylvania (Pike County). I am a Self Employed Welder. I always had a real intrest in Coal Mining, Just the pride miners have. I come from a family of Coal Miners, My grandfather was a Coal Miner in Vandergrift PA, and so were his brothers. I live in the Appalachian Mountains, and couldnt imagine living anywhere else, I truly love Appalachia. Anything else, Just ask.

Thanks Don.

Hi Don
Welcome aboard! I'm a 5th Generation Anthracite Miner. Like you there isnt anywhere else in the world that I would want to live or any other buisness I would want to be in. The hilight of my year this year was working in bear valley. Everybody in my family that mined at one time or another worked in that valley!

Welcome. I have only been through the Appalachians, but I think that they are the most beautiful country in the world.

I'm multi-ligual, Dave, I can translate it for you.

"Hello! Hello please! Soldier boy, please! Five dollars. Suck five dollars, hello? GI Joe, please five dollars. Love you long time."

It's in reference to Ming Lee, a typical name for a Vietnamese prostitute, who would shout what little English terms she could to communicate to the US soldiers. They assumed "GI Joe" was flattering to the Americans.

Right after the spam yesterday, Amy got several e-mails from me that I did not write, suggesting she try various health foods, dietary suppliments, and fantastic weight-loss plans. I am vegan most of the time and it is for health reasons, not hippie reasons. I have a lot of info about it on my hard drive. I am pretty sure I am right, these guys are data miners. They got my e-mail list, the sites I visit and buy food from, and sent out the e-mails. I'm sure I will hear from others on my email list as well.

I am a meth user, really heavy. And it's a South Park snag from when Cartman got a head injury and thought he was a vietnamese prostitute named Ming Lee. The creators of that show must also be meth users.

Actually, never even touch weed let alone meth. I've just worked for the Government way, way too long.
