Above we see a group of Breaker Boys.  According to Wikipedia:

“A breaker boy was a coal-mining worker in the United States and United Kingdom whose job was to separate impurities from coal by hand in a coal breaker. Although breaker boys were primarily children, elderly coal miners who could no longer work in the mines because of age, disease, or accident were also sometimes employed as breaker boys. The use of breaker boys began in the mid-1860s. Although public disapproval of the employment of children as breaker boys existed by the mid-1880s, the practice did not end until the 1920s.”

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Tools

IMG_20181105_115715.jpg

Each week Cee of Cee’s Photography challenges bloggers with a fun prompt. This week we’re to find photos of subjects that depict tools. I’m sharing my set of tools for my computer. I got them at a good price from iFixit.com, a site that not only sells computer repair parts and tools, but offers clear directions on how to fix your PC or Mac.

(I see today – Weds. – that Ceen’ s prompt urged using colors. Obviously, mine didn’t but black, white and gray are colors and I’ve got lots more to blog about this week so there’s no time form for a change.)

Pandemonium

Why is it that now on WordPress any post with a YouTube video starts playing? I liked it much better when a reader had to choose to start one. Now it seems they all begin and there’s a calliope, a total nuisance.

I’ll have to stop including YouTube videos and remove those already posted on the front page.
