Default Hello from the Sunny South

I am 74 years old and suppposed to be retired. I owned a sandblasting and painting company here in Louisiana for about 30 years and got started with a home built blast rig and a 3-gallon paint pot. Over the years I was certified as a Gas Transmission System Applicator and worked a lot in the oilfield, the Corps of Engineers and etc. In the 1980s and early 1990s I participated in the Heat Island Initiative investigating the use of 3M "Microspheres" to build syntactic foam insulation for various applications ranging from roof coatings to VHT (Very High Temperature) coatings for specialized industrial applications such as high temperature lines (steam, engine exhaust, etc.) to sub-sea production lines. I did a lot of specialized blasting. I still do some consulting and joined mostly to see what you younger folks are doing.
