Southwest Windpower

Back in my on grid days when I was researching off grid living, I was pretty enamored with wind turbines.  About a year before I sold out and moved off, I was contemplating a career with Southwest Windpower based in Flagstaff Arizona.  I even participated in an installation workshop at Appalachian State University in North Carolina where Southwest had a test facility for their Skystream 3.7 grid tie wind turbine.  A few months later, I visited their assembly and distribution center in Flagstaff and met with the founder David Calley.  At the time I didn't know his other passion was electric vehicles.  I got my first hint when he got excited about the hat I was had .giZmo. on it - my YouTube moniker.  Seems the Gizmo was an NEV (neighborhood electric vehicle) still in production at the time.  Since Southwest abruptly shut down in 2013 and sold off their turbine businesses, Calley has been working toward getting his own version of the Gizmo on the road.  BTW - he also has a patent for those foldable tail fairings you see on the back of big rigs on the highway.  35,38,33,0,B

My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Happy for help and you can reach him via email:
