Hello again, and welcome back to the FoxWeb!
There's a busy weekend coming up. Saturday will see a full moon rising on Halloween, which would be fantastic if the pandemic wasn't still running around loose in the world. And not long after midnight on Sunday we turn the clocks back to get an extra hour of sleep, meaning we could all stay up and party like crazy - except, pandemic again. Instead of an extra hour of fun with friends, we'll get an extra hour to remember why 2020 hasn't worked out so well. Isn't that fun?
On the plus side, everyone who refuses to wear a mask can feel really good about expressing their freedom from face-covering tyranny. That's what counts, right? What's a little sickness and death among friends?
* sigh *
Sorry, we don't usually get this surly. It would be great if the pandemic would magically disappear, but the only magic this Halloween involves being a grownup and doing what it takes to make Covid-19 go away. Even with a possible inoculation on the way, people still need to be aware of what's happening and be a little more thoughtful.
One can always hope.
So, Sunday is the day when we turn the clocks back an hour and get rid of Daylight Savings Time for another year. Extra sleep is never a bad thing, even if you don't have anything fun to sleep off. And there's always shopping for post-Halloween candy sales, so that's something to look forward to.
Our next update will be Tuesday, November 3rd, which happens to be Election Day in the States. If you haven't already voted, we hope you're preparing to do so. Every vote is important, regardless of who you are voting for.
Have the best and most funnest weekend you can manage, and please: take care!
