  • Y’all said “Bring back the roaring 20’s” and here we are, Social distancing, Unemployment is at an all time high, the stock market is crashing, and we have the new COVID-19 virus that has taken the world in a vise grip. Hundreds of thousands have been infected and are fighting the virus, schools have been shut down and public events have all been cancelled, states have been placed on lockdown as a way to contain it. Major businesses have closed, Hospitals are over packed, restaurants have shut down, and those that are open are only doing take-out and curbside delivery. Slowly but surely we are recovering, the numbers for those who have recovered are climbing steadily. Remember to wash your hands, cover your mouth when sneezing, if you’re sick, wear a mask and gloves to prevent spreading, dont panic and stay at least 6 ft away from others.
  • As of this week the US government has finally agreed on the terms for the stimulus bill that will give US citizens a payout to help with the drastic rise in unemployment and everyday bills and amenities as the expected period of time for the virus to pass lengthens. Individuals making up to $75,000 a year would receive checks for $1,200, with an additional $500 per child, those who make more than $75,000 would see a decrease up to a gross cap of those who make $99,000 yearly.
