I’ve been very busy with my medical equipment business recently. The hard work has paid off. Today I secured a large order from a Swiss customer who is buying equipment they will pick-up in Germany for shipment to Russia (no collusion!). The payment will be made by the Swiss customer in euros to my bank account in the UK that will be converted to US dollars and sent to my bank account in the USA so that my LLC can access the funds. I feel a bit like international business magnate Donald Trump, but without the criminality. Oh, sorry, I just noticed I spelled maggot wrong in that last sentence.

I received an email with good seats being offered at much lower prices than the cheap, nosebleed seats I had been eyeing. I also had a couple Ticketmaster vouchers worth a few bucks. In the end, I think this is the only time I have ever seen this on my ticket receipt …

My Current Brush With Greatness

This is a post with electrical humor, starting with the title. Current, get it? If you do, immediately increase your meds. I could make a case for ‘brush’ in the title also being part of the electrical humor, since the allegedly great person I met yesterday discussed with me the merits of brushed vs. brushless DC electrical motors. Well, that last sentence should have ferreted out all the casual blog browsers. Good riddance! For those that remain reading, here is the guy I met yesterday in my brush with greatness …

Electric Heat
