    *** These are uncertain times ... remember your healthy habits, practice yoga and/or simply take study breaks of stretching/breathing, meditate, remain in virtual contact with your community, schedule your work time (ACE project ready?), and enjoy your play time.  Your patience and good attitude about accepting the uncertainty and trusting everyone is doing their best is appreciated.  Be well.
