Yesterday ~ Today ~ Tomorrow RONNIE’s REAL WORLD . . . with its ups and downs ~ but always positive thoughts, hopes, and dreams. I don’t believe there is another magazine quite like WorldWide; nor another company with a group of people not “born into drilling” but rather “grew with it”. You see, each WWDR Team Member came from a different walk in life, never dreaming they would wind up here in this small town, growing into such a devoted Team with one goal in mind - to provide you - Solid Gold Service ~ with a Smile!™. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? So, with that analogy in mind . . . Which came first (beginning this magazine), the advertisers or the subscribers? YOU need BOTH. Advertisers pay for placing ads (income to turn the lights on, hire people, for supplies, postage, printing, and to pay the rent). Subscribers read the ads, which lead them to the sellers of equipment, products, and supplies. EDITORIAL? OH YES! Extremely important because WorldWide Drilling Resource® is the supplier of education, with its one-of-a-kind way of bringing information to advertisers and subscribers to do the jobs they do best as suppliers and servicers of people in all aspects of drilling. ALL ARE FIRST. WE certainly value each and every one of you for doing your part in the good times as well as the bad times (with its ups and downs). KEEP POSITIVE THOUGHTS, HOPES, and DREAMS. They do come true. NOTE: Please renew your subscription for only $1.00 (less than a bottle of water) = $12.00 USD Annual Prepay Billing. That will allow us to continue bringing you Solid Gold Service ~ with a Smile!™. *For those of you who have already sent your renewals, we appreciate your confidence in WorldWide Drilling Resource®.
