Gas prices and working

Well Gas is here in Ga has reached $4.00 a gallon for regular. In 2001 when I moved to Ga gas was $1.00 a Gallon. I use to not charge mileage for anything under 60 miles of driving per day then about 2.5 years ago I started charging for any mileage over 40 miles. Now I have no choice but to charge for almost all mileage. It now costs me $52.00 dollars to fill my car up with regular. It used to me $13.00. I use to go down to South FL for a 2 days job to see my family at least once a month but now no more unless I am getting paid mileage. I just hope it doesn’t get much worse.

It wasn’t a difficult day but what surprised me is that there wasn’t the excitement in the air when I graduated from college and the overall casual dress of most of the graduates. Of course me and the camera man had to wear graduation robes to blend in. There is nothing I love more than wearing a polyester robe in a over crowded old theater. But as days go it was normal 8 hours of driving and shooting.  My friends and family are always surprised at the hours we work and what we do but as I tell people we are “Living the Dream” and that is ok with me

Using more Rechargeable batteries

I only use a few things that take AA batteries these items include G2 wireless and Timecode Slates but in a effort to be more green I invest $100.07 in one charger and 16 batteries. I bought the Maha MH-C801D eight cell charger. and 2 eight packs of Duracell NiMH 2650mAh batteries per Phil Palmer suggestion. I bought these from Thomas Distribution a great online retailer. I will let everyone know how I find them to be
