I attempt to ‘not’ dwell on the weather, but with 90 plus degree temps and heat values over 100 degrees daily, think it is a news maker … Forecast for the next 7 days is for that type weather … Chance of rain is 30% today, 60% Wednesday, 70% Thursday and 50% Friday … Plan accordingly…
With elections upcoming, the truth is difficult to find sometimes … Bad news travels fast, and supporters of both political persuasions use it if it furthers their cause (efforts). Received one recently that was a little questionable … so I turned to Snopes, a source that supposedly separates the truth from untruth … And, it was not the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth … Factcheck provides the same service, and both at no cost … Politics is tough enough with just the facts, a different ‘spin’ makes it more difficult to deal with … Surely no one wants to spread untruths in a political campaign (?)…
Good to have the President in the state yesterday, checking out one of the companies that will hopefully provide medication for COVID 19 … If all that are currently attempting to develop a cure are successful, this virus can be cured … The sooner the better.
Heard second hand from a former Bladen resident who suffered from the virus, in fact he and his bride, both sick … He supposedly described as the worse case of ‘flu’ ever … My report was, one has recovered, the other is better after time in ICU.
Professional baseball teams began their ‘shortened’ season recently … Headlines this A.M. … Eight more players and two coaches with the Miami Marlins have tested positive of COVID-19, bringing the total cases to 14.
Happy Birthday to two siblings … Ken and Dee … Mom and dad were busy … First 4 spaced out, about 2 to 2 1/2 years apart … total of 6…
