Miners' Miracle

Posted on October 13, 2010 at 9:32am 5 Comments

CNN offered up a clip about a pair of the trapped miners seeing a white butterfly deep in the mine just before the initial cave-in. They followed it and the fact that it was down there and they altered their position in the shaft "miraculously saved their lives".

1. Do not lie to yourself.

2. Do not lie to other people, unless they are… Continue

Hi Rocky,

Meh, it's about 170 - 190 depending on the pattern; on a house shot I shot just under 200, but I'm still learning. Nice to see another Albuquerquian (man, that sounds wordy) here!
