Hump day and I am humming today!


Very late getting my post up, but been busy since 6am today! It is about 9am and I am at work so have to run, more later.
Well, the nickname for Wednesday is certainly living up to its reputation today. I have been humping it all day today. Got busy early this morning and it has not slowed down yet. I have to go till 9pm tonight so it is my long day. BooHiss! But, tomorrow, I am off all day with only a 3hour block in the evening. What a life huh? I know it is tough but someone has to do it. I am gonna head home here in a bit and then back for this evening. I may put a closing on this before bed time tonight. Later ya'll!
3:36pm dateline congress on the high profits oil companies have earned lately. Take a look at this:
WASHINGTON (AP) - The chiefs of five major oil companies defended the industry's huge profits Wednesday at a Senate hearing where they were exhorted to explain prices and assure customers they're not being gouged.

Lee Raymond, chairman of Exxon Mobil Corp. said he recognizes that high gasoline prices "have put a strain on Americans' household budgets" but he defended his company's huge profits, saying petroleum earnings "go up and down" from year to year.

Together the companies earned more than $25 billion in profits in the July-September quarter as the price of crude oil hit $70 a barrel and gasoline surged to record levels after the disruptions of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
Raymond said the profits are in line with other industries when earnings are compared to the industry's enormous revenues.


It just does my heart good when the big guys come clean. Doesn't it make you feel good too? See what we are capable of? I think these guys ought to have to pay what we do, and you know they don't. What really urks me is they expect us to believe this BS. Really! I was maybe born at night, but not last night!
