Good morning, everyone, and how are you today? We are doing all right, under the circumstances, but as the saying goes, we are taking one day at a time. We are, after all, looking at months of challenges, but as the Morning Mayor used to say: Every day should be unwrapped like a precious gift. So while you tug on the ribbon, please join us for a delicious cup of stimulation. For those tracking this sort of thing, we have reached for maple bourbon this morning. Meanwhile, here are some tidbits to get you started. Stay safe.
