February 5th, 2018 : The Big Freeze

Monday. Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

7:00 a.m. Winter this year has struck hard with unusual snowfall reported across this subtropical Island. That’s a little crazy. Today is very chilly in Kaohsiung and Alex is wrapped up like an Eskimo! Luckily for him I had an old but good condition column oil heater which keeps his bedroom nice and warm through the night. Otherwise he’d turn into a little popsickle!

8:30 a.m. Took Alex to Kindergarten by scooter and quickly got him inside. Then headed off to the post office.

9:00 a.m Posted some items then headed straight back home. Today I need to finish two Bumble Bee units for a local order in Tainan. I will give them to Ariel’s mother who is a professor at the university there. My buyers are people she knows who need help. One is a drug addict who needs to break his addiction. The other is a man who has Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which is slowly vegetating them. Drugs are proving useless, so we are hoping the Bumblebee can do something for him and slow down the process a little. It’s experimental but looking forward to the results over the next few months. They will record the treatment and give me the results as time progresses. I developed two protocols especially for ALS or as it is also known MND and will see how effective they are. If successful it will be wonderful for him and huge for my machine. Heres hoping.

12 p.m Finished the two units and headed off to Tainan.

1:45 p.m. Stopped by my wholesalers in Tainan to get some more components. I also am adjusting the current Bee model to incorporate a transistor to help route power throughout the units more effectively. The wholesalers sell those darn cheap so I grabbed a bag full.

2:30 p.m. Ariel’s Class. Her mother also collected the two Bee units from me and paid cash straight up. After Ariel’s Class I demonstrated on her how to use them. One of the protocols made her laugh a lot. She enjoyed the experience and said the two buyers are sure to benefit. Nice comment coming from a scientific faculty member!

5:00 p.m. Heading back to Kaohsiung now. The temperature has plummeted rather drastically now. It was so cold my scooter wouldn’t start. When it finally did I got halfway back and it decided to break down. Again.

6:30 p.m. Pushed scooter to repair hopefully near Gangs hand station. Same area I had the scooter accident late last year. Hmm.

7:00 a. m. Scooter repaired. Changed spark plug and adjusted some internal junction box. Also decided to replace my front disc brakes while I was there. They’ve been screeching a bit lately. A sign they’ve almost had it.

8:00 p.m. Finally made it home. I’m done.
