The hubby and I were talking a little earlier today about how fortunate we are right now in terms of our employment. We both have jobs in which we have been able to work from home. I’m still getting full pay, he is at 80%. During the Indiana hunkering down, we’ve been able to help… Continue reading Pay It Forward, and Backward
While perusing Facebook earlier today, I saw a post by a Mr. Smith about liberals and the man (the man) in the Oval Office. It appears Trumpists, and supporters of Trumpists, are wanting to have the post go viral by saying the post was going viral.

The man in the Oval Office doesn’t care too much for what the lead medical expert says because it doesn’t align with his… Continue reading What Does Safe Look Like?
Today, I either read or heard a headline that more men than women are dying of COVID-19. This statement stuck in my mind. I was trying to figure out why it isn’t more 50/50. Around 3:30 it hit me.
