As we shut the door on 2020 (and throw away the key), I just wanted to give a quick update with what’s been going on my end recently, and share a few things we have in the works over the next few months.  As you might already know, I tested positive for COVID-19 mid-December after a flare-up of joint pain, fatigue, mental health stuff and a slight temperature.
