While Timmothy's cartoon is funny and with Covid many of us can identify with it one aspect is not so funny... loneliness can lead to many serious mental health issues and even to suicide.I am sure the stats are much higher after 2020 with all that has gone on but they still get the message acros...

Sometimes I wonder if communication is improving or getting worse. Methods of communication have certainly improved technically (as mentioned in my last post about the move to 5G) but it seems like peoples focus and comprehension has gone down the toilet.If you have talked to anybody lately in re...
