Hi All! I don't know if this is appropriate, but I wanted to give a COVID update. It seems that cloth masks are not as effective against the new, more infectious strains of COVID. My European counterparts might already know this, but people may soon be encouraged to wear KN95 or KF94 masks. We don't have the PPE shortage from the beginning of the pandemic so these are available on Amazon. They are more expensive than the disposable, paper masks, but I plan to reuse mine by continuing to wear a cloth mask over it.
These folks have been delivering hot meals and drinks to people waiting in extremely long lines to vote since 2016. That's it. A super simple, non-partisan way to support our fellow voters. This year, the year they are partnering with Uber Eats to further expand their reach.
Obviously, donating is great, but there are other ways you can support them, such as reporting long voting line. The longest I've heard a voter waiting in line is 11 hours, in Georgia. Texas is pushing double digits in a lot of places, too!
I remember being on WDC watching videos of tiny, newborn Jack holding his head up and drinking milk from a little cup. I kept my membership, but haven't been around much ( grad school, career building. Ack!). Now that wee baby is all grown up and watching his little sister endure excruciating treatments for leukemia. My heart breaks with every Facebook post. Even though I Facebook with most of my writing buddies, I felt the need to stop by. This site helped me through some of my darkest days. It feels good to be back.
