Paul...thnaks again for the comments  and sounds like you have been listening to some pretty cool music (songs and balads) of the steelworkers trade.

Thanks again my friend.

Hi Paul, I listened to one of the tracks on You Tube and I was amazed at the similarity of the stories told by the workers and their families.  Only the accents were different but the tales were the same.  I had to smile when I saw the men wearing caps. Ravenscraig made strip steel which was exported all over the world.  Happy days!!!!

Morning Paul.  Thanks for the info about the Steel Man's Ballads.  I am sure I will find it interesting.  I have taken part in several documentaries regarding Ravenscraig Steelworks which closed in 1992.  It was interesting to take part in them and it was good to recall the "old days" as it were.   The men who worked in the steelmaking had to work in hellish conditions.  I don't think any of them are available at the moment but the one I took part in for BBC Radio Scotland is in the Scottish Archives.  I have a painting I did for my late husband of the BOS Plant Vessel pouring molten metal (his job)  It is behind glass but I will see if I can get a decent photo and post it.  Enjoy your day I am going to try and get a bit of painting done but the kitchen floor needs mopped first.

Thank you Paul! I agree with you about those autumn colors. Here in Texas very few trees change color so we don't have much of an autumn other than the cooler weather. But I grew up in the Midwest in Missouri and the changes there are so dramatic. I miss those autumn colors. I appreciate your beautiful comment.
