My wife has a serious liver disease, and I frankly think that interviewing people face-to-face would make me a likely spreader of the virus to three counties, so I am working from home.

My daughter’s preschool is closed and my wife’s job is too, so they are looking for things to do that don’t involve other people but are more than staring at our four walls.

Today, at 10 a.m., they went on Facebook to see a live performance from preschool musician extraordinaire Laurie Berkner. We used our Chromecast to show the performance on our TV. I got that chromeast just to watch Star Trek: Picard. This is a way better use of it. She sang, my daughter got up and danced, and even though I had to take a call in the middle of it, we all felt SO MUCH BETTER afterward. It was less than 10 minutes long. She’s going to do it every day, if anyone else wants to watch. You can just watch it on your computer or phone if you don’t have a way to watch Facebook on your TV.
