    Did they let you work on any mechanical stuff while you were on "holiday?"

    Best I could with no gauges and meters.....
    Had a 20 year old 200# Scotsman producing about 300# a day with tweaks and two Foster RI Cooler/Freezers not icing up anymore along with a couple Juice Coolers/Fountains purring along.....
    It's AMAZING how good a tech you get when you've got SFA else to do 25 hours a day.....I'd have gone insane if I didn't get transferred to a work camp prison. That's also where I got my idea for the digital gauges.....while raking leaves. I had Brenda smuggle our my initial drawings and Seq of Operation. I had heard Cdn. law assessed all invented products whilst incarcerated to the 'state' so I did not want to expose it. BIG turn around in my life there.....that's why I love to hear how Bret and JP do so much with their kids......the gift is in the giving .....

    What a cool story.

    It is amazing to me how God takes what would have been seen by most as a real "negative," and uses that opportunity to inspire and open a door to a new future. What a blessing!
