Today is April Fool's Day, (AND EARTH DAY!) and it seems like a good day to do something fun, especially as we all wait out the curve flattening. But my old problem still dogs me.
But today i got a newsletter from the San Francisco Public Library with suggestions for books to read during these times, and in recognition that this is Earth Month. And so, i offer you a different kind of fun, and, of course, much health.
Stay sheltered, sign up for Deep Green (NOW!) and forward this to a friend, asking them to join us.
