    I'm surprised they didn't list the wheel, fire, and sliced bread as theirs. Leave the grandstanding to your own page.

    1998- Tommy meets this crazy dude with groups of lights set all over different tables in a restaurant with volt meters connected to them. Showing the differences between daisy chain, t, and loop method. He starts in about a demo kit with well lights. Tommy decides not to give up on lighting. LOL

    Dude, c'mon now.... you didn't "invent" the sequencer, that was an idea borrowed from Nightscaping & their "Islander Module" a relay that was conceived of by Mike and Kevin Islander from Stewart Jackson Sprinklers & Lighting in Torrance California about 8-9 years ago now. It was then 'borrowed' by Vista before you guys 'launched' it.

    Also, you didn't invent the Hubble BBQ mount at all! You might have adopted it for use in LV Landscape Lighting Systems, but that part is clearly borrowed from common marine components, specifically the mount used for the telescoping stern light on runabouts.

    Also, I still don't see the landmark date that Nate Mullen first met me in person! LOL :)

    Let's get some things straight and square on that list Joey!
