Of course I can play the piano, as long as it has pedals!

    Dupont,

    I'm curious. How did you come up with your user name? I helped build a DuPont plant and worked there for 37 years. So every time I see you post I wonder.

    The local post office is in Dupont, have a very small mail order buisness, always at the postoffice every day. Ladys there know me well! Hence the name, plus it's also the name of our kids school!
    Kind of like the sound of it!

    Of course I can play the piano, as long as it has pedals!

    Pay no attention to Salzo, when he got his first star, he had to sneak up on it! Humans were living in caves back then. He is fairly crusty and just giving you a hard time, but trust me his first 500 or 600 posts showed us all what a beginner he was. Congrats!

    Wundudnee; I've been through the Dupont safety training. Did you ever run into a guy named Pedro (can't remember his last name)He's retired now from Dupont, giving safety training to manufacturing plants. Just curious if you knew of him. Hey also was Dupont safe?

    Guns! Guns! Guns!

    Dupont,
    Thank's, and congratulations on your star. "

    I don't remember any Pedro, but DuPont was a leader in safety practices. E.I. Dupont had a medical facility for his employees and their families at his first powder plant in the early 1800's. Also he set up his powder making buildings along the Brandywine river so they were seperated quite a ways apart so that if one blew up it wouldn't get the others. He built the buildings with three rock walls and one wood wall facing the river so when it blew it would blow the wood wall into the river and put out the fire. It also made it cheaper to rebuild.

    Every time I do something like not using goggles or gloves, or standing on the top rung of a ladder I think "Thats not the way DuPont would do it". It really was a class outfit to work for.

    Thanks Wundudnee, Pedro was supposed to be one of the Dupont plant managers. I know there are several, now he just travels doing the Dupont Safety Seminars. He's quite a character. I work in manufacturing management and we brought him in to review Dupont's system for safety. I agree it does make you look at what you, and others are doing around you regarding safety. Too bad I can't remember his last name.

    Guns! Guns! Guns!
