Turning the Corner in Asia

Looks like China and South Korea have turned the corner on NEW cases of the virus. That's what Social Distancing will do for us, too. Let's all get with the program.

Latest Worldwide Stats

This chart is the top 10, of 204, countries listed in the world by ranking of total infections. You can click this slide photo to be taken to the full list on the web. While it's not appealing to be #1 on this list, other columns show that our stats are certainly not as bad as some.

We can help. We're able to keep the wheels of the front lines turning. Call us at (301) 739-8285

Social Distancing

This is not some "pie in the sky" theory! This really works! Look at the results in China and South Korea. But EVERYONE has to participate. Beach goers bring the virus BACK to the folks that are fighting in the trenches and ruin everything we're trying to do. Get with the program, folks!

There's Hope!

We're in this together isn't just a slogan... it's a fact! We'll get through it but we've all got to do our part. Have Faith, and remember that "We're in this Together".

Love and Family

This page of the website goes completely away from the corporate emphasis and is written as a totally personal topic. It came to me as I heard a song and I felt a real need to share my feelings with you all.

A quotation of scripture from The Bible, 1 Corinthians 13, beginning at Verse 8 reads:...

"Love never fails...", and the scripture continues to it's conclusion in verse 13, "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is Love".

My intention is not to write this as "Religious Teachings" but instead, one person's feelings of self and the Love and Relationship that we should have with our spouse and family. I'm a sucker for the "story telling ballads" of the Country Music genre, and what I'm putting in front of you today is something that touched me, as I listened and connected with the story teller. It hit too close to home.

Too many times in our hectic lives we forget to let our closest friends and family know just how much we Love them! And all of a sudden, it's too late. Life and health catch up with us and we leave this worldly body without having expressed our "true feelings" toward those who mean so much to us. So don't let that happen to you. Express your Love to your friends and family on a regular basis. You'll feel a whole lot better if you do.

In the meanwhile, read the following lyrics, and if you care to, listen to the song by clicking on the song title link. But most of all... regularly express your Love to those with whom you feel the closest.

This song was written by Garth Brooks and Kent Blazy, and performed by Garth Brooks in 1989. It is appropriately called "If Tomorrow Never Comes". How fitting a title. We're not promised any tomorrows... so consider seriously your Love and Relationships, today.

"If Tomorrow Never Comes"

Sometimes late at night,
I lie awake and watch her sleeping.
She's lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark.
And the thought crosses my mind,
If I never wake up in the morning.
Would she ever doubt
The way I feel about her in my heart.

If tomorrow never comes,
Will she know how much I loved her.
Did I try in every way, to show her every day,
That she's my only one.
And if my time on earth were through,
And she must face this world without me.
Is the love I gave her in the past,
'Gonna be enough to last,
If tomorrow never comes.

'Cause I've lost loved ones in my life,
Who never knew how much I loved them.
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed.
So I made a promise to myself,
To say each day how much she means to me.
And avoid that circumstance
Where there's no second chance, to tell her how I feel.

'Cause if tomorrow never comes,
Will she know how much I loved her.
Did I try in every way, to show her every day,
That she's my only one.
And if my time on earth were through,
And she must face this world without me.
Is the love I gave her in the past,
'Gonna be enough to last,
If tomorrow never comes.

So tell that someone that you love,
Just what you're thinking of,
If tomorrow never comes.
