#tbt I have a show based on the human connection - because it’s something I believe in. So, COVID-19 has had a profound impact on me. These are some of my initial thoughts.

Your outlook on our current situation will determine how you (and those you are quarantined with) will get through this time. I have seen incredible acts of love and kindness, including from strangers, which warms my heart. It is an honor to share and support the good deeds that my awesome friends are out here doing to uplift others. Spreading love is important now more than ever! Here are my Top 10 Things you can do...💙

1. Find ways to laugh (this is big in my house). Then keep the jokes coming. It will reduce anxiety and allow you to cherish some of these moments.
2. Call someone you've been meaning to reach out to or call someone you believe may be in need.
3. Check up on your neighbor/friend. Ask them if you can get them anything if you're running an errand. (There are ways to do this safely.)
4. Call the people in your life over 60. It's a scary time and they need to hear from us regularly.
5. Support local businesses (especially restaurants) by ordering carry out.
6. Support/follow the online businesses of people you know. Mine is www.facebook.com/danabeingdana/. POST OTHERS BELOW.
7. Enjoy quality time with family and friends (as appropriate). I'm loving this time with my kids.
8. Invest in self care. Exercise. Sleep. You name it. (I'm reading books now I have put off for months!)
9. Exhibit a spirit of gratitude for all of your blessings.
10. Plan your comeback for when this $*)#& is over! What have you be putting off doing???? Prepare for it now!

It’s Election Day! I am the only Licensed CPA running for Auditor, also I am endorsed by both the Tribune and the Daily Herald (links below). I have a primary opponent and I need your help. If you want to support me, you have to pull a REPUBLICAN ballot (no Bob and Bernie, sorry). Many polling places have changed, so check the link below to see if yours is one of them. Polls are open to until 7:00pm (if you’re in line by then, you will get to vote). Practice social distancing and patience. A large number of judges are older and cannot work for health concerns, but those tat are there will be doing their best. Remember what Churchill said, “Democracy is the absolute worst form of government, except for everything else.”

Public Safety and Health Forum! Details below!

Sadio Mane, The Liverpool Star from Senegal (earning approximately 10.2 million dollars annually),has given the world a lesson in modesty after some fans spotted him carrying a cracked Iphone.His response is legendary:
"Why would I want ten Ferraris, 20 diamond watches and two jet planes? What would that do for the world? I starved, I worked in the fields, I played barefoot, and I didn't go to school. Now I can help people. I prefer to build schools and give poor people food or clothing. I have built schools [and] a stadium; we provide clothes, shoes, and food for people in extreme poverty. In addition, I give 70 euros per month to all people from a very poor Senegalese region in order to contribute to their family economy. I do not need to display luxury cars, luxury homes, trips, and even planes. I prefer that my people receive a little of what life has given me," Mane said.
