Safety is an important and often overlooked topic. Make safety a part of your everyday life and let others know how much you care by making their lives safer too. Let the next generation of tractor enthusiasts benefit from your experience, and maybe save a life or appendages.

As some of you may know I am a fire investigator in my life away from cubs - the other day while working a scene I snapped this photo of an M size acetylene cylinder that was exposed to heavy fire in a detached shop. This obviously exploded and I found it 120' from the area of origin. It is constructed of 3/16" steel - just thought it was interesting as many of us have welding / cutting outfits in our shops.
Improper use of an electrical space heater (sorry but I have to be careful about going into detail)
There was a fire at a plant gas plant in St. Louis a few years ago, they filled all types of gas bottles there. some of the acetylene bottles were found a few blocks away.

I remember that. Think they said bottles were shooting up like rockets landing blocks away from the explosion/fire.
I am going to save this picture for when we go over shop safety in class.....

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.
