So it looks like we can relax a little concerning our power supply.

The third engine, you can call in new (but you would be wrong) or call it second hand or refurbished (right answer), is now up and operational.

Great work by the crews and lets hope the management at NL Hydro learn some lessons, but we wont hold our breath.

 A new and potentially important job opportunity is in the offing. I say potentially just for the fact it has three funding *fingers in the pie*, these can be problematic if not handled correctly.

My guess- the success of the job will depend on the person who is selected for the position. It is way past due and much work to be done.

The FSN has had some projects on going in Hopedale for some time, I just hope not too many meetings between outside *experts* have to be re convened as it seems like a lot of work can be carried over to this regional position.
