Bummer!

Spent the entire morning taking my pre-surgery testing. EKG, Cat Scan, X-Rays, Blood tests, Covid test, Vein mapping, Carotid artery test, you name it. Came home with all the instructions and materials needed for tomorrow’s bypass surgery and bam, get a phone call at 3pm. It’s postponed till the 18th and worse yet I have to take all those tests over again. Continue reading

YOU Got This…

My last few posts have been about the forthcoming MSF detectors and the competition to see who can capture the anxious buyer. What makes it even more interesting is that the marketing strategy has become somewhat testy with claims and rebuttals all over social media.  Of course that’s the nature of the beast, isn’t it? Just throw it out there, true of false, good or bad and folks will hear what they want to hear. Continue reading

The Battle For Your Dollar

Interesting that battle lines seem to have been drawn, but instead of two adversaries we have three – the Aussies, the Turks and the French. Missing entirely from the equation? We Americans… Continue reading
