Some restrictions are being eased and more folks are starting to get out and about, so what better time for a bit of Generosity!  :thumbup:

Don't need to get out to do that. Can send donations online. ;) I send small donations to charities and to the free software I use that I like.

Personally, I think it's too soon to start easing up on restrictions. The numbers have not gone down enough yet. They're asking for trouble and the numbers will skyrocket again...

Wilson Roosevelt Jerman
Former White House employee who served 11 presidents dies of coronavirus at 91

Quote
By Doha Madani
A former White House butler who served 11 different presidents died at the age of 91 after contracting the coronavirus, his granddaughter told Fox 5 DC.

Wilson Roosevelt Jerman was one of the White House’s longest serving employees, remembered fondly by former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush in a statement to NBC News on Wednesday.

“He was a lovely man,” the Bushes said. “He was the first person we saw in the morning when we left the Residence and the last person we saw each night when we returned.”

Jerman’s granddaughter, Jamila Garrett, said in an interview with WTTG that he began as a cleaner in 1957 under the Eisenhower administration and then was promoted during the Kennedy presidency. Garrett said her grandfather fostered relationships at the White House that helped him advance his position.

Inside the Flour Company Supplying America’s Sudden Baking Obsession
... this is an article about King Arthur Flour that's really interesting!
How King Arthur Flour found itself in the unlikely crosshairs of a pandemic
David H. Freedman
Quote
Baking bread was a regular family affair in Linda Ely’s childhood home, leaving her with a lifelong bread-baking habit and some powerful memories. “I think of my family every single time I bake,” she says.
... Ely is one of the bread specialists working the hotline
... countless people were calling in to order as many as 10 of the company’s five-pound bags of flour at once. Who would need that much flour in their homes?
... I fired off a text to the sales team to check their figures,” says Colberg. “It was obviously some sort of mistake.”

No mistake came the reply. The figures had already been double-checked. They showed a 600% increase in grocery-store sales almost literally overnight.

Yeah, stores are saying it's hard to keep yeast, bread machines, and baking supplies on the shelves for awhile now. I'm trying to buy a bread machine now. more people are also starting to grow their own produce.
