Richard Hull made me jealous about living
'close' to the action:

Hmm, if I were lucky with the connection flights, I may
make it in some 36 hours, I guess...

I would have bought the whole stock...  I guess I'd spend all of
my hard earned money if I just found something usable to buy over

Maybe I can make somebody jealous about living under the
Aurora Borealis, aka. Northern Lights, almost every night
in the winter (8-9 months of snow...)  Somebody wondered if
my coil will be the northernmost in the world? Anybody knows?
Anybody beating 68th parallell? (some 300 miles to the _north_
of Fairbanks, Alaska...)

BUT, I did once hear a rumour about another coil-builder in
Sweden. Well, since it's in Sweden, it cant be more than
1500 miles away... (to the south, probably)

Wish you were here instead,
