The “F” stories went live a few days ago . . . and stuff.

. . . and if you read them, you have an opportunity to vote for your favorite HERE. That’s also where you can find links to the stories so that — you know — you can read them before you vote.

Yes, we’re steeped in the current and against that backdrop, reading a few stories on this blog is not a priority. on the other hand, maybe you’re one of them people who are bored out of their skulls and latch on to any distraction.

Or, you’re working from home and your break is coming up — the fourth break of the last hour, or two less than when you’re at work. Meaning, you’re behind and without co-workers to distract you, reading a story or two may be the perfect substitute.

A quick update on the face masks saga . . . yesterday, officials told us we might, perhaps, maybe, you know, if you want to, consider wearing masks when out in public but stressed it’s for the protection of others, and that they only work one way.

Meaning, if you are sick, a mask keeps you from spreading the virus to others by trapping the virus in the mask. BUT . . . if you are healthy, the mask allows viruses right through and does nothing to help keep you from catching it. 

Them be some seriously devious masks!

Sarcasm aside, I think of masks as an additional layer of protection; you still have to practice isolation/distancing, washing hands, and stop picking your nose.

Anyway, stay safe, and if so inclined, read the stories and then please vote.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
