How Are Funeral Homes Dealing with Covid19!

Michael Davis is the Chief Financial Officer at Eternal Rest funeral home in Houston, TX.

He says the Coronavirus has changed the way his industry does business.

The business owner says because of CDC guidelines no more than 10 people can attend a funeral service which makes it emotionally tough on families.

Davis says as a result of the new normal his funeral home, started by his late father Skipper Lee, will now live stream funerals so that additional family members and friends can be a part of the service.

Family members must also sign waivers assuming liability while attending a service.

Davis says it’s just part of the new normal in his industry.

President Trump Signs Your Stimulus Check!

Do you care or do you just want the damn check? The Washington Post’s Lisa Rein reports: The Treasury Department has ordered President Trump’s name be printed on stimulus checks the Internal Revenue Service is rushing to send to tens of millions of Americans, a process that is expected to slow their delivery by several days, senior agency officials said.

The unprecedented decision, finalized late Monday, means that when recipients open the $1,200 paper checks the IRS is scheduled to begin sending to 70 million Americans in coming days, “President Donald J. Trump” will appear on the left side of the payment.

It will be the first time a president’s signature appears on an IRS disbursement, whether a routine refund or one of the handful of checks the government has issued to taxpayers in recent decades either to stimulate a down economy or share the dividends of a strong one.

While some people receiving the checks — the centerpiece of the U.S. government’s economic relief package to stave of the effects of the coronavirus pandemic — may not care, or observe, whose name appears on them, the decision is another sign of Trump’s effort to cast his response to the pandemic in political terms.

Trump had privately suggested to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who oversees the IRS, to allow the president to formally sign the checks, according to three administration officials who asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Where have all the bikes gone?

Boredom takes a toll on the human spirit and some will find a way to break that monotony.

Empty adult bike section at Academy Sports and Outdoors in The Woodlands, TX

A quick visit to your local Walmart, Target, and Academy will deliver proof people are finding ways to get around the cabin fever of being locked in doors.

If you go into the bike section of these stores in the Woodlands all of the adult bikes have been snatched up.

There are only a hand full of kids’ bikes left. A worker at the Academy says he’s waiting on a new shipment because obviously customers are as well.

I think right now there are probably more bikes on the roads and trails of America than any other modern time.

I got my ride, what about you?
