Hi Tom:
Pinkeltje
It’s Dutch.
I once spent a year in the Netherland so I recognized the word structure of “Pinkeltje”.
The Dutch like to add je or tje to the end of words to denote that they are small. (A booklet would be a boekje.)
And Philips is a Dutch company.

So it’s a small pinkel.
I’m afraid I don’t know what a pinkel is….

Hi BOL
I have been noticing lately that there has been some discussion on assigned seating in movie theaters. Well it’s becoming more popular here in the Kansas City area. AMC headquarters is based here in the area and they have recently opened a new venue of theaters that are designed for in-theater dining, with recliners and assigned seating. The theater staff also serve alcoholic beverages under certain circumstances. The prices are the same for all seats so Molly should be pleased,no first class seating, just first class service for everyone.

I just thought the listeners might want to know that a new movie experience is coming to theaters.
