How are you doing this morning?
What’s it like locally where you live?
I was telling my wife this morning over coffee, one of the harder things to deal with (for me) is getting accurate information, trying to sort the crazy rumors out from what’s really true so we can make good decisions.
I stumbled across a fresh source of news on Thursday I have good feelings about. It’s called the Epoch Times. They are currently running a special. First month is only a $1.00, then after that, it’s $70 something for 6 months. What impressed me, well one of the things that really impressed me was their coverage on the Covid-19 (the coronavirus). They have an ongoing data base that is updated every couple of minutes with statistics on number of confirmed cases, number of deaths, broken down, by country, and state. Crunching the numbers myself, I saw that in Italy for example the rate of death was over 8%…which is crazy. When it comes to accurate information from China, I absolutely do not trust the information, from them or the mainstream media in our country.
Got this off their website:
“The Epoch Times was founded in the United States in the year 2000 in response to communist repression and censorship in China. Our founders, Chinese-Americans who themselves had fled communism, sought to create an independent media to bring the world uncensored and truthful information. We are free from the influence of any government, corporation, or political party—this is what makes us different from other media organizations. Our goal is to bring our readers accurate information so they can form their own opinions about the most significant topics of our time.”
I’ll let you know in a month, whether or not we chose to subscribe. It’s a little steep, but knowledge is power as the saying goes.
On a local front here, I have a full morning. Dropping off a couple of dozen farm fresh eggs to one of our regulars, then stopping by my mom and dad’s for a cup of coffee. Their in their 80’s so they are laying low. At 10 I am picking up our 6 year old grandson. He get’s to hang out with grandpa today (me), going to show him how to start tomato plants from seeds. Then as they mature, send several of the plants home with him for him to plant and take care of and eventually show him how to save tomato seeds for next season.
After our seed starting workshop, we are going to pick up beer cans.
Home Schooling PE class at it’s finest. 🙂
Get some exercise, clean up the environment, hang out with grandpa and make money at the same time,
Here’s a link to the Epoch Times, in case you are curious:
And finally, I’ll leave you with this…I shared it last year:
Take care. DM
