Hi Henk,

Do you know how loud he likes playing music, sounds like it would run out of steam?

I'm OK.

It's just that some idiot in a car knocked me off by bike 4 weeks ago,and broke my left collarbone.

But I'm almost back to normal again, all is healing well, so I don't expect any lasting damage.
It did however trash my Paris travel plans....

With Apogee isn't it so that it's current that counts, not so much watts?

Mend well Henk

may I enquire, does the mending process makes your chuckle....
30 years ago, I too came off a motorbike (front wheel encountered a loose car headlamp in the road, while I was banked over coming into a roundabout... whoosh) and found that I couldn't stop laughing

after your beautiful work on Apogees, are you tempted to re-model this time
(incorporate shock-absorbing section to the collar bone?)

wishing you Happy Christmas Henk

and to all in our Apogee community
