Hello, Salem!

I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was decent until this evening. I had multiple issues trying to get the State’s webpages loaded. I thought it was the State’s website, but then, when I went to do some calculations, my spreadsheet was not cooperating, either. So, it might be my computer. Either way, I’m frustrated! So much for getting some extra sleep tonight. Ah, well. Tomorrow is another day. I will make tomorrow a good day! I hope you can do that, too, even if it is a Monday.

Stay safe, and always, be kind.

~Bonnie
