Happy Spring Equinox!

Greetings to you on the first day of Spring 2021! What a different view, to me anyway, the beginning of this Spring holds versus past Springs, especially if we travel back a mere 12 months to last March. This time last year, parts of our country and economy were shutting down, pausing, closing, whatever term you want to use. Now? The opposite. There is a systemic loosening of restrictions as children are (mostly) back to schools, restaurants are accommodating more patrons, and, as I personally witnessed last weekend, airline travel seems to be picking up.

Do you remember when you were younger and went trick or treating for Halloween? Did one of your parents check the candy packaging to see if it had been tampered with by someone? Or were they overly cautious of which neighborhoods or houses you went to? When I was a kid, I remember thinking “why would someone put a razor in a candy bar?” But hey, there are strange people out there! In a similar fashion of being cautious with “free” Halloween candy we must also remain cautious of “free” --well, free anything to be truthful--on the internet or in traditional mail.
