PAtents
Jan 16, 2012
By

I just received notice that I have been granted a patent.  I was notified by the Patent Awards company of Warsaw Indiana.  The patent was issued on January 10th and I received the letter on the 15th.  I have gotten patents while employed at three different companies and old P.A. has always been the first to notify me.  Three cheers for the profit motive.  They only make money when people get patents and want a plaque.  They sent me a very nice letter and suggested I may want to commemorate this experience with a plaque.  I remember how excited I was getting the first and now I couldn t say how many I have without checking the Patent office.  Some people display their patents on their office walls.  I never cared to do that as I am intimidating enough in person.  I gave one plaque to my son, one to my daughter and I am saving a couple for the grandkids whenever they come along.  A couple of the plaques were mounted on very nice pieces of black American walnut.  Not anymore!  They are now commemorative brassy plates.  Instead of giving me another plaque I wish the company would give me about eight board feet of French Oak.  I ll make my own plaque!
