    I learned that if several co-workers enter my office at the same time I can make them run away if I act tired and say that I have chest congestion.

    My regular springtime allergies are kicking in. The dirty looks and the way people back off when I sneeze in public!

    Here's our next million dollar idea, guys... bulletproof basketballs.

    They make run flat tires, so why not?

    I learned that my Honda CB1100EX's engine, in 6th 'overdrive', is only turning over at a basement-class 4250 rpm at 90 indicated, which is half-speed, as this engine's redline is 8500 rpm.

    Putting out 'only' about 85 'crank' hp, and with this tall gearing, you won't soak your panties in terror from its acceleration, but it's still a very fine motorcycle, and an exemplary highway cruiser. It doesn't hurt that it's a beautifully retro-styled machine either.

    It's a great old car boneyard, and fairly vast, stuffed with 40's, 50's, and 60's cars...(tap image to enlarge it). It's on the eastern edge of Rapid City.

    Three things:

    1. A Peloton bike, which has wholly captured my sister-in-law's soul and now my kids want me to buy, is around $2,000 and then there's a$40/month video membership fees.

    2. I will not be buying a Peloton bike.

    3. Walmart sells Squiers.

    I learned our CFO, payables manager, receivables manager, logistics and pricing managers should continue the work at home trend.

    In a few weeks they're happier, the work is getting done, and some claim losing a few pounds. I realize work at home won't cut it for many jobs.

    I learned today that the collective noun for kangaroos is a "mob". And I love that.
