It’s not been all bad…

This has been one HECK of a year.  We have had one of the most significant elections in American history – that goes without saying.  And then there was the Pandemic.  The Corona Virus.  Covid-19.  Again, another monumental happening that has shaped 2020 into the year it has been.  Depending on what political side you …
