>>    In the fall when you see geese heading south for the winter
>>    flying along in the "V" formation, you might be interested in
>>    knowing what science has discovered about why they fly that way.
>>    It has been learned that as each bird flaps its wings, it
>>    creates  an uplift for the bird immediately following.  By
>>    flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds at least 71%
>>    greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.
>> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>>    PEOPLE WHO ARE PART OF A TEAM AND SHARE A COMMON
>>    DIRECTION GET WHERE THEY ARE GOING QUICKER AND EASIER,  BECAUSE
>>    THEY ARE TRAVELLING ON THE TRUST OF ONE ANOTHER.
>> 
>> 
>> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>>    Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the
>>    drag and resistance of trying to go through it alone and quickly
>>    gets back into formation to take advantage of the power of the
>>    flock.
>> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>>    IF WE HAVE AS MUCH SENSE AS A GOOSE, WE WILL SHARE
>>    INFORMATION WITH THOSE WHO ARE HEADED THE SAME WAY
>>    WE ARE GOING.
>>

>> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>>    When the lead goose gets tired, he rotates back in the wing and
>>    another goose takes over.
>> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>>    IT PAYS TO SHARE LEADERSHIP AND TAKE TURNS DOING HARD
>>    JOBS.
>> 
>> 
>> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>>    The geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep
>>    their speed.
>> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>>    WORDS OF SUPPORT AND INSPIRATION HELP ENERGIZE THOSE ON
>>    THE FRONT LINE, HELPING THEM TO KEEP PACE IN SPITE OF THE
>>    DAY-TO-DAY PRESSURES AND FATIGUE.
>> 
>> 
>> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>>    Finally, when a goose gets sick or is wounded by a gunshot and
>>    falls out, two geese fall out of the formation and follow the
>>    injured one down to help and protect him. They stay with him
>>    until he is either able to fly or until he is dead, and then
>>    they launch out with another formation to catch up with their
>>    group.
>> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>>    IF WE HAVE THE SENSE OF A GOOSE, WE WILL STAND BY EACH
>>    OTHER WHEN THINGS GET ROUGH.
>>

>> ----------------------------------------------------------------
>>    The next time you see a formation of geese, remember...
>> 
>>    IT IS A REWARD, A CHALLENGE AND A PRIVILEGE to be a contributing
>>    member of a TEAM
