Rob and I were testing our typing skills tonight. 

I was pleased to find out that I’m a faster typist now than I was several years ago when I last took the test.  My highest score was 74 wpm with two mistakes.  I give credit to all of those IEP reports I have to write for my students

Give it a try and let us know how you do.

Another way to seriously injure myself!

I have found another way to get hurt. Last year I bought a dual sport motorcycle. It is essentially a dirt bike with blinkers and a license plate so it can be driven on the street. Last night was the first time I actually took it up the mountains and used it like its supposed to be used. I was a blast. I can say I came out unscathed....I can't say the same for the bike :-)
After several instances where the tires became less than perpendicular with the road the results are:

a) a front brake lever that requires a bit of hand contorsion to pull
b) a few nice new scratches on the plastic
c) a speedometer which only tells the correct speed when I'm at a redlight (its and easy fix!)

...but it was worth it and I'm ready to go again!
