It’s another Friday everyone. I hope you and yours are all safe and well. Here’s how things stand in Alabama as of last evening: There are 4,379 confirmed cases statewide and 136 reported deaths. From last week that’s an increase of 2,802 confirmed cases and 58 reported deaths. Governor Kay Ivey is making plans to reopen Alabama’s economy, stating that she’s accepting imput from medical experts, state politicians, and mayors. Hopefully this will be done in a responsible manner that won’t result in the numbers of people getting sick to grow exponentially. We’ve also just received 15 Abbott ID Now testing devices that can determine if someone has Covid 19 in less than 15 minutes. The drawback is you can only run a few tests at a time, so these will complement the testing system Alabama is already using rather than replacing it. So, that’s how things are in my neck of the woods on April 17th, 2020. How are all of you?


For this week’s positivity, I’d like to introduce to you twenty-seven-year-old Callen Schaub. He creates his eye-popping abstract pieces by spreading paint on canvases using some innovative self-designed equipment. Take a look and prepare to be amazed and possibly hypnotized!
