  3. Thirded. We're big softball fans around our house. Slapping seems to be falling by the wayside a little bit since they changed the in/out of the batter's box rules. Hotter bats are making it more of a power game as well.

    Books you are reading

    'The Reckoning' by David Halberstam. It's basically about the history of the auto industry in American and Japan - focused on Ford and Nissan - but with a lot of tangential historical asides about oil, Japanese reconstruction, etc. Fascinating stuff. In the hands of a lesser writer it could be pretty dry stuff but Halberstam makes it a page-turner. The only thing I'd read of his prior to this was 'The Education of a Coach'. Now I'm thinking I need to read a lot more of his books.

    Why are gas prices up $.70 a gallon in 2021 ???

    Gas pretty much always goes up in the spring/early summer due to refinery changeovers for seasonal fuel blend changes. Also price of oil has been going up with Saudi and Russia cutting production. Also, also the Texas power outage shut down a good portion of the country's refineries for a time.

    Biden set to raise nationwide gas tax by 89 cents

    Coal has been steadily declining as an electricity source for more than a decade and is now well out-paced by natural gas, which is much cheaper and much cleaner. Coal is dying because natural gas is killing it. We actually produce almost as much nuclear power as coal power at this point. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/22/U.S._annual_electricity_generation_by_energy_source_in_1970_through_2019_(49882975922).png

    PPP Loan

    They are interest-bearing at 1%. I assume that is the bank's cut. And even if you eventually get full forgiveness on the loan principle, the vig is running from day 1 so there will be some interest to be paid.

    PPP Loan

    We got $420k for a 60 person payroll. 60 ish employees x 160 hours per month = 9,600 man hours per month. 9,600 x 2.5 months = 24,000 total man hours. $420,000/24,000 = $17.50 per hour on average inclusive of all bennies. Not hard at all.

    PPP Loan

    I just received the proceeds of our second loan. Our bank has heard - not sure how officially - that funding will run out some time today.

    PPP Loan

    We were going to apply for the PPP for both entities regardless. It was just a matter of which bank or banks we were going to use.
