Love Cream both then and now. When I started dating my wife I found she had more of their music than I did. Naturally she was a keeper. And that was over 50 years ago (but not quite to 50 as far as married years)
I just started playing a few years ago and discovered Joe too. Wow and then I found a local drum shop owner who knew him and saw him about once a year. Said he was a great guy and always willing to help players and stay around to answer questions. Seemed like even a better person than a player.
I had adult croup once and reflux acted up at the same time. It made it a problem to clear up. Couldn't really sleep with and would wake up choking. Took weeks to clear up and spent a few days in the hospital. Sleep deprivation will get to you very quickly. And then my voice would cut out...
I'd like to know more. CNC is what? I dont understand how you have a patent if the strainer isn't designed. But then I have little patent experience. Not trying to argue. I'm just interested in understanding. And last how are you marketing? Is there a niche or through internet, retail?
