A good thriller...

I am reading House on Fire by Joseph Finder. It is a good thriller about the exposure of a fictional big pharma company involved in covering up the addictive properties of its main drug product.

Gradually improving in my area, too.

We still have shortages of frozen foods, paper goods and some detergents/cleaning supplies, but the general situation is improving. That's wonderful that the National Guard is able to help you.

Great suggestions here...

In addition to what everyone said, I would plan my meals for the next couple of weeks. Sometimes, even though the grocery stores are open, there are shortages. We have not had a good selection of...
