What's New -- March 2020

We learned how to work from home this month along with much of the world! Getting adjusted to our home offices, getting set-up to work remotely (for those of us who can), finding ways to communicate and coordinate our work in new and creative ways, and finding a new rhythm to the work day are all quite challenging. But we are doing it! It's nice to have more time with family and pets, and see the sunshine during the day!! It's also nice to have a refrigerator not so far away.



Working from Home in 2020 Working from Home in 2020



But we miss the collections, we miss our routines, we miss the fast bandwidth, and all our huge screens! But what we miss more than anything are all of our co-workers! Hope you are well out there in your respective homes and we hope that the end of this virus soon comes!
