  2. Once I am back from vacation, I will be in middle of a maintenance outage.
  3. A busy 3 weeks for me, so I have to give you a few “best-of” podcasts
  4. I also may be slow to answer people in email and social media

  2. I have not one, but two new medical products coming out!  One was to be part of the other, but during recording, I decided to separate it, just due to the shear importance of it.  It is… The GUN CARRIER’S trauma kit!
