RECAF: This could be fun, especially for those who bought before it tripled (and then sold some to be playing from now on with house money). It links to a report suggesting our shares could be worth $60 ($72 Canadian).
BOREF: The work toward FAA certification continues. Completed: a ground vibration test, a static stiffness test. Ongoing: drop, shimmy, and steering tests.
I know not what any of this means, but I read “shimmy” and, well . . .

Bob: “Re yesterday’s post, Samoa, Belarus, Russia . . . prior to the pandemic I would have only be able to identify one of those three on a map. During the pandemic I stumbled upon seterra.com, an online geography quiz site, and spent two or three minutes each day quizzing myself on the world’s countries. It’s incredible how in just a few days, using their online quiz, you can learn the locations of almost every country in the world. Lichtenstein vs. Luxembourg? Latvia or Lithuania? Mauritania vs. Mauritius? No problem. (Note: Your August 10, 2000 column was titled: “The First Embarrassment is Having to Find Mauritania.” I recall being embarrassed and looking it up.) I highly recommend the site (also available as an app) to everyone, especially school-aged children. In addition to countries, you can do states, capitals, world leaders, flags, etc. With just a few minutes a day of study they would definitely be contenders in their school’s geography bee.”
