Hopefully, you are all still fit and well. I have two friends who contracted Covid, one recovered, the other has 'Long Covid' and is still rough..she is 65. An older client of mine didn't make it. She was known to me for years and was in her late 70s. My Business is currently closed under the 'Non-essential business' closure, but the Government has ensured we don't go without. As a 'Sole Trader' (One man band), they paid me around $20,000 to stay shut. I can live with that, plus more to come early next year! Maybe your Government has a similar scheme to help Locked Down businesses? I can come to work but cannot open my store. However, there's always work to be done, so I have painted the entire store to the ceilings. Four months of gutty work but it had to be done, (Full decoration Lease obligation). The next job is the store frontage. That's for next year! Well, It appears that Joe Biden will be your next President...good luck to him, but whether or not he will be any better or any worse than Trump remains to be seen. From my local media, it seems that Trump has 'lost the plot' and won't concede to defeat. Does he have the onset of some sort of behaviour issue, or is it a reaction to the Covid Jab which he had...what was he given, some strange potion that wasn't 'Number 9'?! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL AND HOPE THAT AT LEAST HALF OF 2021 BEARS FRUIT FOR ALL OF US. Unfortunately, I cannot see this abating for a good while yet, especially with this new strain SARS-COVID 2 or whatever they call it? BEST WISHES C.E.
