Well it is a small world after all. (Anybody remember the Lorus Disney Mickey Mouse each that actually plays the song?)

Unfortunately Altoona is in decline. And many f the sights you saw probably no longer exist. The city is in distress and on act 47. And they are talking about leasing or selling the water authority. Many are in a uproar over this.

And the big dams are right n the center of the world famous Horseshoe Curve. The city claims they can get 200 million for a proposed 50 year lease. But I'm thinking that if someone is willing to pay that....then why not make the money themselves and get into whatever business that the company seeking to lease it is in.

I simply do not trust anyone willing to buy my water supply. And I have lost all trust that I had for those stupid enough to consider selling it.

Now as far as horology, I have actually invented my own kind of clock. And I invented a mathematical formula that worked with it. I did this back in 2004. Then I tried to get a patent, only for the USTPO to tell me that I needed a Patent lawyer because the application was incomplete, and more things were needed.

I had already successfully prosecuted my own US trademark application and was granted a US trademark registration for another invention of mine. And I saved a lot of money doing it myself. So I thought when I filed for a patent for my mathematical formula, and clock/meter that all was in order.

But of course it wasn't. And the USPTO vehemently advocated that I secure the services of a patent attorney........which could cost thousands.

My payment application was published. And I did secure US Copyright for the text and technical drawings...thus providing me some credibility.

I will probably, in the next few days make a new thread that shows my formula and work....just to see what you guys think and if maybe you could give me directions on what cogs, gears, and exact era I might need to just build the clock myself.

I invented the formula and design and theory. But to actually build it is a different matter. So again I will make a new thread showing my patent publication just to see what you guys think.
