I don’t know about you, but I needed some humor and laughter today. Fortunately, I found some and am pleased to share them with you here.

Cartoonist xkcd gives us this chart showing risks of COVID horizontally and just general risks vertically. My favorite one is “opening a kissing booth at a COVID test site”

Finally, to a competition without COVID or team mascots. After ten events in the Marble League 2020, here’s the overall standings:

Two of my four teams – Raspberry Racers and the Minty Maniacs are doing well!

And here’s event #11. Hope you don’t get dizzy watching it!
