Matt, sounds like really good news. But it also means you’re going to have to shift gears to production. Can a true inventor do that? There have been many who failed in their efforts because they refused to go to market and do manufacturing once they had succeeded at developing something that was marketable. Ever tweaking, improving, bettering their system until they missed their opportunities. Edison, De Lorian, Montgolfier, Fuller, even Whitney almost missed his chance, just to name a few. I don’t doubt you man, just a friendly warning from history. Don’t hold on to the part you love so hard that you fail to do the part that makes the money…
Same problem exists with non-profit organizations I’ve been involved with through the years. Usually they begin as some family deal with a pretty good clear, small vision. Then they grow beyond what that family can handle, and if they are not allowed to grow beyond that, they end of dying or becoming defunct.
As for weather, Wayne is probably as wet as we are. Haven’t had this much rain for a long time. But it’s not cold. Made it into the 70’s F the other day. Just perfect for oyster mushrooms. We picked about 100 lbs today.
The thread is called “Life Goes On”. But sometimes it doesn’t.
We got word today from the community we used to live in in Tennessee that one of our friends was killed today on the road. She was one of Erika’s good friends and the older sister of her closest friend there.
It’s an Amish community so they use a lot of horse & buggy and bicycles. She was riding her bike home from the community store where everyone buys sewing and medical supplies, on the shoulder of the road., someone going too fast around a big curve in the middle of an Amish community. They came around the curve on the side of the road and hit her. It knocked her off a cliff into a deep ravine. She was about 44 years old, mother of 7 children. the youngest was 2. They were our neighbors for several years. Amos, her husband was a real good friend of mine.
Also, a 4-year-old boy in another community we interact with in Kutztown, PA was killed by a manure spreader this week.
