We Should Not Be Here
(Recording Dates: January 11, 12, & 15, 2021)
We're back from the Holiday break with a jam-packed episode for you.
The Omicron surge has hit hard, and society is facing a major stress test, so we've for a you an overview of the landscape with updates on testing, hospitalization and death rates, back to school, congregate living settings, treatments, and government supports.
And, because things are a bit heavy, we'll lighten it up with our readers/listeners' feedback and the cool news.
Because we believe that “Democracy Is Something You Do”, this week we have two suggestions for you:
The post-Holiday season is typically difficult for Food Banks, so if you have the ability, this is a great time to make a donation. In addition to beans, rice, and canned goods, think of atypical things to include such as flour, brown sugar, powdered milk, diapers, infant formula, margarine, cooking oils, spices, sometimes even kitchen utensils such as can openers and spatulas come in quite handy.
Also, given the COVID crunch, organizations such as The Red Cross and Hema-Québec’s blood and platelet banks could very well be low, so if you’ve got the time and inclination, consider making some time to make a donation.
Finally, we want to know: What is your favourite hibernation activity?
You can do that via our show’s Facebook blog page on via Twitter @TrueEager.
Of course, retweets, shares, gentle corrections, constructive criticism, compliments, tips, requests and positive reviews (if you think we deserve some stars, please rate us) are always welcome.
Until then, be kind to, and gentle with, yourselves,
Your Eager Beaver
