Weekly round-up

without comments

So much good stuff this week, it was hard to pick. But I have to say my favorite is the above video, which illustrates exactly how an engineer’s mind differs from the rest of ours. What would happen if we took that racing bike and put it inside that riding mower? To the shop!

Quote of the day

This one is courtesy of Jack Harrell, owner and president of the eponymous chemical distributor. He’s the subject of our June Q&A, where he talks about the company’s push to the national stage. Here, he explains how he’s grown the business over the past 30 years.

We’re still family-owned and pretty nimble. We can jump on opportunities pretty quickly. The second thing is that if you don’t grow, you plateau. I’m always looking for ways to grow our company, but do it on the top line, the bottom line … the whole nine yards. But we don’t want to get too far afield of what we do best. Boring is beautiful.

Keep your eyes open for the June issue hitting mailboxes soon.

Indianapolis’ turf could give New York giant advantage

Not surprisingly, our beloved Cleveland Browns won’t be making an appearance in this weekend’s big game. So really, we don’t care who takes home the Lombardi Trophy. We just want good football, good commercials and good food.

However, thanks to R&S Landscaping, we came across this interesting analysis that says the New York Giants will win. Why? The turf. Both the Giants and the New England Patriots play on FieldTurf, the same artificial turf installed at Lucas Oil Stadium. Artificial turf usually favors teams with better speed, according to an analysis by The Bleacher Report. And, this year, that would be the Giants.

Take it as you will. Our hope for this weekend is to just not commit any of these Super Bowl faux pas.
