Preachers can be found speaking on Internet

Whitesburg

I’m wondering if by the time this coronavirus quarantine is over will we want to hug or touch or even stop and talk to each other.

We should support each other during traumatic events

Distancing is no problem

Points East

I haven’t personally had any problems with social distancing or holing up inside the house for weeks at a time for several years. Keeping to myself has pretty much been modus operandi over the last several years, because Mr. Parkinson insists on being a very stubborn recluse.

Spring arrives then leaves again

Southern Ohio

Hello everyone! Spring arrived in the Ohio Valley area for a couple of days, then the temperature plummeted like the stock market on television, with rather cold nights.
