I’m glad I live in NH. Unlike the rest of the country, our COVID-19 numbers continue to stay low, and Salem numbers continue to stay flat. I keep busy; because I don’t like to be bored. The one exception: I like these boring numbers that we are seeing these days. Let’s keep things nice and boring! Stay safe, and always, be kind.
