Here are some challenges, for all you internet Google (or whatever other search engine) experts. If you are like me, you enjoy the challenge.

So, see if you can find answers to the following; post the url to your results:

1. The name (first and last) of a friend of mine who owns an auto repair business in Mission, Kansas (sometimes called "Shawnee Mission"). The business is named after him, and he has a web site.

2. In what year did Ernesto Colnago first present a custom made bike to the Pope? What color was the bike?

3. What famous person said, "Life is like a ten speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use."

4. What actor was a star in both Breaking Away and a movie about a kid beating up on two intruders?

Anyone want to play?

So, what will a minute buy me??? Fine, I'm in the middle of having a corporate resolution rewritten...I'll fax it to you! :)

P.S. I typed into Yahoo: "mission kansas auto repair"
There was only one webpage hit. easy.

I did the same search, and got 8,500 hits. I figured you'd have to narrow it and do some secondary searches. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=mission+kansas+auto+repair&btnG=Google+Search

I suppose I could comment on one sentence of your resolution. :-)
