    There are a few schools that offer the Petroleum engineering degree in the country--Penn State, Marietta College, Montana Tech, Texas Tech, West Virginia University, Colorado School of Mines and the University of Texas. I may be missing a couple, but those are the major ones.

    My first name is Jaben. It's from the Bible. Jabin was a king of hazor. My middle name is Blue Star. (My mom was nothing short of a hippy.) I have 2 siblings that have a different father then u do. Their father was African American. I am Caucasian. I grew up in foster homes and boys homes from age 8 to age 18. On my 18th birthday I was on my own. I took and passed my GED at 16 years old, the same year my father died. Once released from DHS custody I rented a small apartment and worked at Taco Bell to get by. I spent a couple years playing the streets to make ends meet. I got into some bad stuff and ended up reuniting with my older brother and sister. I moved in with them to get away from everything and ended up meeting a pretty young blonde and got married, had a son and divorced all in a year and a half. I took a year of college but once a single man again the trouble came in droves. I put myself in some very unfortunate situations and ended up a criminal due to a short temper and vast stupidity. Beaten smart by eventually learning from my mistakes I made peace with myself and let go of anger. I met a pretty young brunette. 10 years later and my life is in line finally. I'm not perfect in any way but I'm a far cry from the idiot I once was. I'm 33, I have 4 boys. Darius 13, Braden 8, Easton 2 and Cooper 7 months. Great kids. Life is no banana pancake, but I wouldn't trade mine for all the gold in fort knox.

    Is it a mix of mechanical and chemical studies?

    Sounds like a good gig.

    Back in the day not all that long ago. If someone want to get into the field i'm in there was not specific education offered at institutions. There are still very few. But if still takes one to two years of OJT of training to be let loose after you get the federal cert.

    Wish I would of went that direction earlier in life.

    But oh well. I got stories anyhow.

    I've been divorced twice until I found the keeper. My son by marriage is in his latter thirties. My one and only grandchild is 15 months old.

    I'll be seeing them next weekend over in Eau Claire.

    Nope, it's a church wedding. Are you going to one? Phoenix Park has quite a few weddings.

    I'm 41 years old. Born and raised in Fl. I was born into the natural stone industry. Kind of an old family tradition you could say. At 20 years old I joined a pipefitters union, and did a five year apprenticeship/and five long years of school for refrigeraton half. Top out and was a journeyman for ten years. Went through a divorce then bounced around from trade to trade. Moved to mena Ar. alittle over two years ago. And I'm loving it here. I just started a new job here at Nidec/US Motors. Got afew months of training ahead of me. I don't have any children. And enjoy most of the things everyone else here does. I got a little jackrussel, and shes been my sidekick for the last thirteen years. Oh!! Does Juan also tell fortunes?

    I've got 4 wonderful kids, ages 14, 15, 18 and 19. I've never been married but have lived with their father for 20 years. For most of my adult life I spent a lot of my adult life as a stay home mom, occasionally working receptionist type jobs. Eventually, I went to tech school for drafting and now I'm a drafter/ project coordinator for a structural concrete company- and I absolutely love my job. I've also got 2 dogs- a 13 (?) yr old lab/pit mix, a 3 1/2 yr old german shorthair pointer and a 10 yr old sun conure (small parrot).

    It may feel that way now-- I had all 4 of mine by age 28. But when they get older and start moving out... you will still have the energy to enjoy those years. I have friends who are still having babies at 40. All my kids will have graduated high school before I turn 45. I wouldn't change a thing.

    Another good reason to promote sex at a young age no doubt... I had all mine by 28 too... we made certain of that for both of us...

    As to who am I... I teach, I fly, I shoot, I hunt, I write, I sell, I love making things and fussing with guns, bows, carpentry, and .... I'm invested heavily in hunting issues, politics, and preserving our hunting in Hawaii.... I'm a messenger of sorts... and to that end... I met with a screen writer this morning who might be able to help us with a video messaging approach to getting our side of the story out... so what I do puts me in contact with many other interesting people and that is what keeps me young and beautiful...

    I'm mostly a lurker, with a couple posts.

    Spent as much time in the burbs as I did the sticks while growing up. Opted for the sticks, about as far West as one can go and still be considered on the Cumberland Plateau. Overlooking the Bluegrass Region Of KY. I've worn a lot of different type shoes......and no shoes as well. Been wearing carpenter's shoes for some time now. Three years with the Army late 70's. Coming 34 years married. Possibly the only woman on Earth that could have put up with me that long. One young'un older than some, younger than others who have responded here.

    I've got a yard full of Mtn Curs I squirrel hunt with mostly, enough one string bows to supply a Mormon family and I shotgun hunt turkey.

    I've heard/read the term liberal/conservative to the point I'm numb to both. I'm an anarchist at heart who understands it actually means self governance. Chaos is Government imposing the will of one group over another. I think the evolution of politics and religion displays evidence for survival of the fit. If they don't fit, don't wear 'em.

    Having said that, I see a bit of blood flow in here now and then so I suspect Boonie_ Hunter, in a round about way, is looking for info on new blood type. I'm B+ if anyone can use a pint now and then.

    I'm later 20's, married for about 7 years, and a young son. There will be a few more soon enough, I'm sure. I went to school for business, worked in sales for a few years, then decided to go back to get into a health profession. I did a masters in science to gain admission to dental school, stuck there for a bit yet before I can go wrench on some people for money instead of for free. My wife and I are a part of the 'small home movement', we have now downsized our first 3 home purchases...we currently reside in a 120 year old 500 sq foot home that uses every square inch of space well (interior design is her thing). I am pretty sure our next place will be an adapted railroad boxcar with a nice view. For fun I wrench on my jeep, chase elk around, and maintain a couple large fish tanks...oh and argue with people on the internet
