Something About Nothing
Geoffrey Arend and John Lennon

     My Nothing Box, that I bought in 1961 from Hammacher Schlemmer in Manhattan, a dancing light display that does nothing else stopped working.
     This thing costs $25 bucks and it operated on a self-contained power supply that was supposed to run out of battery after one year.
     So all of that happened, but then I thought who can afford to throw 25 bucks away so I opened It up and soldered another set of batteries into it and it performed perfectly with a new set of batteries annually for 61 consecutive years.
     Every February around Valentine’s Day I changed out the batteries and my Nothing Box kept on going, and going, and going doing, well-Nothing!
     Last February with maybe too much time to think about it during lockdown, I changed out the batteries, but this time substituted lithium for alkaline.
     Big mistake.
     My Nothing Box took some kind of jolt.
     Whilst the dancing light display still dances, only three of the eight bulbs are showing up for the action.
     Fortunately we are a large diverse family, so am in contact with Cousin Obi to see if a repair can be achieved.
     Obi builds sound systems (Khan Audio) and is a top flight engineer for musical groups.
     So I think I will include this picture of John Lennon 58 years ago when he arrived with The Beatles for the Ed Sullivan TV Show and took the U.S. and the world by storm.
    Looking at this picture of John in 1964, and me this week before I wrote this, confirms that once upon a time we had Nothing in common.
