Memorial Day 2020

By keith | Blog

This Memorial Day 2020 weekend, the traditional kickoff to summer, will be different than we’re used to.  Whatever your tradition is, it’s likely impacted somehow by the COVID19 crisis.

U.S. government buildings, military posts and embassies will fly the flag at half-staff through Memorial Day weekend in memory of the nearly 100,000 people who have died of COVID-19, President Trump announced Thursday night. The decision comes after Democratic leaders in Congress sent a letter to the president requesting the gesture.

“I will be lowering the flags on all Federal Buildings and National Monuments to half-staff over the next three days in memory of the Americans we have lost to the CoronaVirus,” Trump said via Twitter.

Flags will be lowered from Friday through Sunday’s sunset. Trump added that flags will again be flown at half-staff on Monday to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.

The national flag is dropped to half its normal height at times when the nation is in mourning or after a national tragedy. The U.S. is currently in the throes of a pandemic that has killed about 95,000 people in the country and derailed normal life for millions of people.

Wherever you find yourself on Monday, Memorial Day 2020, please take a moment to remember and honor those who died while serving our country.

Be safe, and be healthy.

The Doc retired

By keith | Blog

It is official, the Doctor of Paging has retired.

Don Bivens has retired after many years in the industry. Don inherited the title The Doc by everyone he ever worked with or trained.

I received excellent training from the Doc. This man gave much to the Overhead Paging Industry because he loved it.

Don traveled all over the country Training and doing Paging Demo’s. He loved what he was doing and it showed.

If you had a paging problem, Don could heal it.

I met up with Don while vacationing in Arizona this March. He is doing well.

He said he was no longer active in the Industry. I didn’t think he could do it.

He hung up his guns…..

He is retired, but not gone.

Busy day today…

Blew 10 inches of snow out of my driveway, and the neighbor’s.

Did a programming change on a customer’s Magix phone system in downtown Milwaukee – remotely.

Talked to a business partner in Minnesota – a web inquiry – and will be doing paging designs for the Minneapolis-area contractor.

Did a repair on a Partner phone system in Hartford, Wisconsin – remotely.
