Happy Thanksgiving every one! May all who visit here today find peace and a reason to be thankful! It seems like the holidays roll around quick. I enjoy them but not the materialism. Every thing is about buying the biggest and the best. Bill Gates can attest to this! LOL! Can you believe they expect to sell three million Xbox 360's in ninety days!

I haven't heard the Quito Apple is expecting to sell with the ipod! Any way enjoy the holiday. I believe this is the last in our series on the Big machines and it is a douse...

Designated a “Great Ohio Adventure of Learning” by the State of Ohio Division of Travel & Tourism.
Southeastern Ohio has some truly amazing things and the following provides some of our strongest documentation! The Big Muskie Bucket is the centerpiece of Miner’s Memorial Park located just 16 miles West of Caldwell I-77 Exit 25 and right along SR 78. This artifact has generated unbelievable interest from young and old all across the United States and from around the world! Why?
The Big Muskie was the World’s Largest Dragline and one of the seven engineering wonders of the world! The machine has even been featured on the History Channel! The Bucket weighs 460,000 pounds empty and when loaded carried an additional 640,000 pounds. It’s volume is equal to that of a 12 car garage. Can you imagine what Big Muskie must have been like to even move such an object, let alone maneuver it effectively?
The Big Muskie Bucket and Miner’s Memorial is without a doubt a one-of-a-kind destination. The site represents a major piece of history and assures that the mining men and women of Southeastern Ohio will never be forgotten.
To learn more, study the history of Big Muskie on the following pages and discover a Hidden Corridor, which is the only place in the world where you can still go inside the cab and even read inscriptions on the walls! Study the photographs, review the statistics, and then visit the Memorial. Take a picture of your family in the Big Muskie Bucket with your car parked next to it. We guarantee you’ll be captured forever with fascination and disbelief!

Thought for the day, my grandpa use to say son , it's easy to be thankful on a full stomach, today think of those who will go without!
