Here's a tip. It is easier for most people to understand what you want if you throw appropriate punctuation and capitals into your verbiage. I know, it is so limiting, but most people learn to compartmentalize ideas by watching for the cues provided by punctuation. This is a weakness I suffer from- I've reread your first post three times and all I can figure out is that there seems to be some sort of robot made from a garbage can.

yes but you have to start as soon as it is over to get things ready for the next year. +i am the only one that does all of the electronics,audio and any thing mechanical. so with work there is never enough time.
