Care Package for Saturday, May 2, 2020

The Care Package, aimed at helping you cope with the new normal and the impacts of physical distancing, now includes a list of important phone numbers and websites at the bottom of each edition. I’ll add more as they reveal themselves or occur to me. 

To lighten the mood, I’ve added a second Care Package to the blog each day. Swing back through around the middle of the afternoon each day to check out the Flashback Care Package, a collection of fun stuff that was popular on this date in years past.

Stay safe, and take care of yourself and each other.
