When Is This Thing Going to Work?

Filed under: The Major |

Ishpeming –  March 18, a windy snowy morning downtown Ishpeming means the flags are flying, but the wind mill won’t move.

I believe in trying new projects. I love innovation, and invention.  I believe in try, try, try again.  After all, that’s how we got the light bulb and so many other inventions.

Despite my love for innovation and invention, I still chuckle every time I see the wind blowing like a son of a gun and this windmill standing there idol! Will this eggbeater ever generate power?
.
Being Dutch, with my ancestors from Northern Netherlands north of Amsterdam, where there’s nothing but wind mill after windmill after wind mill, this is a specially comical to me.

Now apathy is a bad thing. If Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, or Thomas Edison were still alive, and they lived
downtown Ishpeming, what would be going on ?
