During the greater part of my working life I had been involved with the construction, generation, distribution, maintenance, or use of power, be it steam, electric, natural gas, gasoline, diesel, or just hot air. My first exposure was in the Power Plants of Pulp and Paper Mills, operating and maintaining Boilers, Steam Turbines and Steam Engines. I later became involved with the inspection of Mechanical and Electrical Equipment for an Insurance Company that insured against direct damage and loss of production caused by the failure of an insured object. That was a most interesting profession, primarily because of the many diversified industries and the different types of objects that were insured. Then came the construction and maintenance of electrical transmission and distribution systems and natural gas pipe lines.
