lost my mind…now what????

Monthly Archives: June 2015

be careful what you eat and stay on top of recalls….


I try to credit anything that ain’t mine but…I ain’t perfect


the facility I work at has 3-500′ berths…these boats won’t ever come here…we have no gantry cranes…BUT… these ships can’t do break bulk…we can and send equipment worldwide, but mostly to south america

All these photos were taken last weekend in the port of Rotterdam by Jan Oosterboer and used via Fred Trooster.  Notice their size:

And why are ships getting bigger, other than because they can, and the population is growing?  Well, we need more stuff.  Compare these family photos of household and possessions.

Many thanks to Jan and Fred for these photos.
