My vocation was in Human Powered Vehicle design. I won the Practical Vehicle prize with a radical chassis that integrated the springs and suspension with the composite frame. I had many eager customers, but wound up learning hard lessons about business and management, which I hope to write up. Now that I'm officially retired, I might be able to afford another prototype. In my "spare" time, I do big, family-friendly displays for many demonstrations. My big Earth Ball, orbited by "paper dolls" has been a popular visual feature for decades, and I've got a Big Dove that is easy to store, haul, and set up, and experience with backpack puppets.

This worked fine in tribal society, but now, we are being tricked into allowing long-range lies to escape justice.
