Hell on Wheels season 4. The life of workers of The Union Pacific as Cullen Bohannon or Psalms. Pay, diet, health and security. A hard life!


Pay varied according to responsibility. Drivers and apprentices received the least, the iron men received a little more, and foremen the healthiest sum.

The Union Pacific diet: cereals, beef, bread, and black coffee. They drank liquor and beer (made by Irish workers), water was in poor condition.

The hygiene was poor. Workers slept together and had lice in mattresses:

“To tell the truth, we were troubled by cooties,’ wrote a veteran of the Union Pacific.

Prostitutes spread venereal disease, there were bandits and smugglers who attacked the train route, and Native American Indian were another great problem. Remember the slaughter of troops at Fort Philip Kearny on December 21, 1866, “the Fetterman Massacre,” a terrible battle between the Lakota, Cheyenne, and Arapaho Indians and soldiers of the United States army.

A hard life! Don’t you think so? Men had to be tough as Cullen Bohannon… but women too.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you. Hell on Wheels season 4 rocks! Summer is exciting!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
