  1. Hey everyone... Now weather is getting much better, I got a chance to visit a place I havent been to in a while. Franconia, AZ meteorite strewn field.

  6. They don't clean up their toxic mess when it leaches onto private property either. We have a big lawsuit here where they have ruined dozens of private wells and devalued property. Much of it owned by their employees. They spent more on legal fees to keep from having to pay for the wells and property than it would have cost to make it right. I used to work for that outfit.
