    I worked at Ford's Norfolk assembly plant while they were changing over from building cars to F-150s. Workers literally followed the last vehicle down the line and cut the machinery up with torches. Everything was loaded on barges and taken away for recycling - over a million square feet of densely packed, heavy machinery. Even the concrete floor was ripped out. Two weeks later that plant was back to full production building 90 trucks an hour. It was amazing to see. Of course, it took about two years of planning to pull it off. Just the Gantt chart for that project was enormous.

    I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!

      Dad used to say,
      "The difficult, we can do!
      The impossible... that just takes a little longer."

      Nothing amazing about it... when you believe you can and will get the job done.

      Suddenly, it dawns on me, Earnest T. Bass is the intellectual and philosophical inspiration of the TeaParty.
