Everything in the world exists to end up in a book.
~ Hosea Ballou (American – Clergyman / April 30, 1771 – June 7, 1852)


Hairstyle Appreciation Day

National Honesty Day


So if everything exists to end up in a book I wish the sad tale of COVID-19 would end up in a book to be forgotten.  Many of us are wishing we could get our hair styled to celebrate Hairstyle Appreciation Day.  Visiting a hairdresser is top on many people’s list of what they want to do when social distancing is over.

Google news now summarizes that there is over 3.1 Million cases of COVID-19 confirmed in the world.  About 1/3 of the confirmed cases are in the USA.  The total number is low because not all people in the world are being tested for COVID-19.  Similarly the number of deaths is lower than the actual number, as postmortems don’t include testing for COVID-19.
