COAL DUST IN THEIR HANDS: Last Days of Production at Energy Fuels Mine (Short True Story w/Photos) (Visceral History: Coal Mining)

by Linda G. Shelnutt

This Visceral History* is an account of overwhelming grit founded on values passed from father to son, both called Tom Shelnutt. The story features a coal mine and a group of never say quit miners who wouldn’t give up the ghost until the spirit rose up into the sky. The essence of this history was lifted from conversations with my husband over meals at our kitchen table, with him telling me about events of his just finished shift at Energy Fuels Coal, in Florence, Colorado. Our home is in Rockvale, 5 miles from Florence, population 400 (possibly including goats, donkeys, rattle snakes and scorpions, along with some true human characters). In our cottage there, the surfaces don’t always sparkle as brightly I’d like them to, but the living is deep, and it’s home. The house especially feels so when I’m listening to Tom’s work stories as he’s eating supper or breakfast, depending on what shift he’s worked. Maybe it feels even more so when he’s out on our back 5 acres, toying with heavy old iron, rearranging it, or staring at sunlight slants on rust spots. And, it feels so when we drift into dreams at night, in a quiet town on the prairies, at the base of the foothills of the Wet Mountain Range of the Rockies.

VISCERAL HISTORY is my term for true stories told from the gut, usually featuring the perspective of the author in addition to one or a small number of individuals. I’m developing a code for this type of true account shared in this collection relating to the coal mining industry. This is the one in that collection which features my husband and his mechanic cohorts, updated 2013.

With Respect,

Linda Shelnutt

Winter editions of COAL DUST IN THEIR HANDS are sometimes offered free, from one to five days to honor the 160 year era of mining in Fremont County Colorado, and to remind that in days long gone receiving a LUMP OF COAL in a Christmas stocking was a cherished blessing for warmth and prosperity during cold hard times.

Speaking of blessings in cold hard times… more reviews expressing what readers enjoy most about these chapters individually would give a lot to an author who has dedicated full time effort to a profession as a novelist since February 1985; an author who has given away hundreds of thousands of Kindle offerings on free promos offered around the world; an author who is still collecting under $100/month in all royalty payments. Shelnutt is pleased to have the opportunity from Amazon to offer her books free in hope of eventually stimulating sales adequate for a living wage. But, until that event of financial return on investment manifests, the author admits that it is good to know that many, many readers have enjoyed the no cost opportunity to read and benefit from her books now counting 17 full length and 31 short works. Linda Shelnutt’s greatest wish for financial return would be to one day soon tell her husband Tom, a coal miner mechanic, that he can retire and live on an adequate steady income from her books. For a view of how hard and proud Tom and his friends work, read COAL DUST IN THEIR HANDS.

DARK DIAMOND TWILIGHT: Last coal load out from Energy Fuels (Short True Account w/Photos) (Visceral History: Coal Mining)

by Linda Shelnutt

DARK DIAMOND TWILIGHT demonstrates how to let go with simple dedicated dignity, with heart-healing easy warmth among cohorts. A short true account with photo essay, this work features a group of never say quit miners who wouldn’t give up the ghost until the spirit rose up into the sky, or in this case until the spirit was drifted down with ebony dust into the beds of a prime selection of dump trucks given the honor of diminishing coal piles to dark streaks on the ground, later to be reclaimed into prairie grass.

The essence of this history was lifted from the author [wife of one of the final employees] being on site at the Energy Fuels Mine in Florence, Colorado the day during which the last load of coal was trucked off the property in preparation for the operation shut down. An idle period would allow a pause for hope and possibility prior to cutting apart and tearing down the infrastructure and hauling it off in large pieces for scrap. [That event is dramatized in The Last Lunch Box.]

From the Author: Being surrounded by the indomitable spirit of the small crew involved in the last load out was an honor I’ll cherish until I give up the ghost… probably well beyond that. The scenes of loading the final coal collection would be taken home that evening by all in attendance, along with those involved who could not be in attendance. The experience of having been there for this mine’s last day of constructive, profit oriented operations has given a sense of peace, being on site to witness a job more than well done. That memory can set a healthy attitude for those times each of us endures more than once, when a heart needs to lie heavy for a while, giving time for a day of passage to settle into a healing soul. In this case the “day” was a 160 year era….

Real Estate Marketing in the 21st Century – Facebook Marketing for Realtors (Real Estate Marketing Series)

by Michael Smythe

Real estate marketing has gotten really complicated.

The same real estate marketing strategies that worked 10 years ago, or even 5 years ago, seem to change as quickly as the housing market.

And with the good old days (or as I like to call them, 2005) long gone, realtors need to have a real estate marketing plan that’s cheap, effective and flexible enough to move with the changing marketing landscape.

And Facebook is the perfect vehicle for your real estate marketing efforts.

I know, Facebook? You mean that annoying social network where people share every single thought that comes into their brain and barrage you with Mafia Wars invites?

Yeah, that Facebook.

Here’s the thing: as realtors we aren’t selling widgets or refrigerators or iPhone adapters. We are selling our experience, and our relationship with our clients.

And when it comes to the touchy-feely world of marketing relationships nothing works quite as well as Facebook.

As long as you do it right.

Because there are so many ways to do it wrong.

And that’s why I wrote this book. To help other realtors struggling with:

-What do I post?

-When do I post?

-How do I post?

-How do I get fans?

-How do I not waste my time with Facebook?

I don’t claim to be a total Facebook expert, but I do claim to have made every mistake in the book. (And hopefully learned a little something in the process.)

And that’s why I wrote “Real Estate Marketing in the 21st Century Vol.2: Facebook Marketing for Realtors”

So what do I cover in the book?


In Chapter 1: Yeah, But How Do I Make Money With Facebook?…I lay out a simple plan for turning all those fans and likes into actual leads and clients. (The method may surprise you.)

In Chapter 2: 5 Biggest Fan-Page Mistakes Realtors Make…I show you the absolute top 5 things you gotta do when setting up your fan page, and how to absolutely crush the competition.

In Chapter 3: The 3 Keys to Facebook Posting…I break down the when, what, and how of facebook posting with a simple, easy formula that even a congressman could follow.

In Chapter 4: Custom Apps (Why They are your Best friend)…I explain how Facebook royally tries to screw us over as marketers, and how custom apps help you take back the power with focused little silos of lead-generating content.

In Chapter 5: How to Get a Boatload of Fans…I show you…well…how to get a boatload of fans.

In Chapter 6: Facebook Advertising for Realtors…I dig into my favorite types of Facebook ad types, and how to use them for top effectiveness. (And with as little cost as possible.)

And lastly, in Chapter 7: How to Put Your Facebook Marketing on autopilot…i show you how to get other people to do all the work for you. (Yeah!)

So, that’s it! I’ve put everything I know about Facebook marketing for realtors into this book. Hopefully it gives you a good foundation for your Real estate marketing strategies and helps you make a whole lot of money!

This book is for you, if you aim to produce constant income and long term wealth from trading or investing. The difference between trading and investing lies in the perspective of time: Investors usually take a longer-term perspective to buy and hold their investments, while traders focus on shorter-term results. If you learn how to participate in the up- and down moves of the financial markets, you will start to invest more frequently and turn yourself into a trader.

Trading is a professional business and it requires preparation: Those, who take the other side of your orders are prepared to make money. Are you?

Unfortunately, most of what we learned in life is rather a hindrance to progress in trading: Good work ethic for example – We start to work when the office day starts and work to the end – and feel good about what we have done. However, we better not start to trade when the market opens and trade to the end: We only trade when we have a signal and the odds are in our favor. Our account statement tells us if we can feel good about what we accomplished. Let this book guide you to a new perspective of trading or investing.

Prepare yourself for a part-time or full-time trading career; follow our step-by-step guide and insights, how to start and operate your trading business.

To connect you with real-trading-world of this decade, we introduce you to the principles, methods, and strategies of Spotting and Following Institutional Money Moves by Algorithmic Trading with Human Interaction.

This book is for readers without prior knowledge or for those, who want to take trading or investing to the next level: Trading is a professional business; professionals are prepared; amateurs pay professionals to be part of their game.

Which side of the trade do you want to take?

The CUT Tax

by Jeffrey Schaben

An idea outlining the form and use of a currency use tax, as a replacement of the current Income Tax Code.

This idea is based on a currency conversion tax created by, James Tobin. The Tobin Tax was designed to target financial activity at the global level, for funding of the United Nations. It was never instituted in his lifetime. I have just expanded this idea onto the US financial market to target all new transactions, at a relatively low tax level. This would change the structure at what levels profits, or income would be taxed at.

The CUT Tax, (Currency Use Tax) does not distinguish between gross and net. It only collects on the Gross Revenue. Thus, it can be collected without the need for filing.

I see the effects of the CUT Tax as the tax burden being redistributed equally among all people and organizations. Thus, leading to a more rational lower tax rate for everyone.

Under the CUT Tax there would no longer be any tax-exempt groups. Therefore, there would be no need for a government bureaucracy to monitor these organizations financial activities.

The CUT Tax will be a controversial tax for many reasons, and you may or may not agree with it. However, this tax is inevitable. Someday, a form of this tax will be enacted. The question is when and how? Therefore, it is in your best interest to try to educate yourself on this concept, It is my hope that this book will help you to understand this and other tax issues, and the impact tax issues have on your life. Thank You for your time and consideration.
