I'm pretty smart when it comes to electrical issues but feel like a first grader in geometry and algebra.
I've cream truck, we had a couple in my hometown as a kid. The one we all liked was the 'ding ding' truck because they served soft serve cones for a nickle and for another nickle you can have it dipped in nuts, hard shell chocolate or coconut. He was 'ding ding' because the truck had a little bell instead of playing music from a music box.
