    Productivity is clearly suffering but we will survive. Clearly it will not be a great performance year for bonuses in the company.

    Are you flying or have they canned all that?

    As of right now, I still have a job. However, owners laying low for a bit. We had a board meeting scheduled for today. Instead of picking folks up and bringing them in, all did a conference call. Going forward......we’ll see.

    Considering the fact that, until yesterday, I didn't know of a single real-world person (non-celebrity, sports star, politician, etc.) who had even been tested, the map showing the number of reported cases is grim. Actual number of cases will surely be greater, and it's already a lot, and increasing rapidly. At least they still make beer and bikinis.

    Too bad Croc can't run Spa. But, Jeff Bezos can, and in something even less aerodynamic than a Seven. All this home time is tough.

    Great video. It has the power of a full-sized box, but corners like an envelope!

    I tried something different yesterday given that everyone is working remotely. My team and I did a virtual happy hour. We set up an online meeting, everyone used video, had a beverage in hand, and agreed absolutely no work talk. We ended up shooting the sh*t and playing online trivia for an hour, which proved a nice escape from the pressures and anxiety of the current situation. As one person put it "this was the first time in 2 weeks I've gone more than 30 minutes without thinking about Covid-19." Recommended for those of you working remotely and missing the non-work interaction with colleagues.

    I love that suggestion. Just sent it to all my friends who are still working (un-retired)

    Yes been doing it a bit lately here. Hopefully, a social version of it will also kick off Saturday with the NJMP gang. We were experimenting yesterday with various technologies.
