We're not out of the woods yet, but I'm remaining hopeful.

im not gonna get my hopes up yet

Some good news http://keysnews.com/node/24874

lets hope the turtles dont hit any oil floating out there
Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole
I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance, I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears, Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

Yes BP finally got the real expert they needed all along.....
A plumber! :D

IMO they have squandered all this time trying to suck more oil, rather than plug the damn hole!
As "high tech" as they want to explain away the slacking, this is simply a huge, very heavy plug!

One would hope this advanced technology :roll: fixes this problem and they make more for this same reason.

But yes, a day to celebrate, and venting my frustration, I applaud that BP has stepped up (under a firestorm of media pressure, and pending lawsuits)
I do believe they will make it right, do their best. It easily could have been a less qualified company, unable to deal at all...

So with this very mixed blessing,
Image :emerit:
Dyro, Dduw, dy nawdd;
ac yn nawdd, nerth;
ac yn nerth, ddeall;
ac yn neall, gwybod;
ac o wybod, gwybod yn gyfiawn;
ac o wybod yn gyfiawn ei garu;
ac o garu, caru Duw.
Duw a phob daioni.
