Himalayan Mountains Visible for the First Time in 30 Years
From as far away as 200 kilometers (124 miles) photographers are taking beautiful pictures of the Himalayas. All over the world pollution is decreasing dramatically. The earth can breathe easier. Are we learning yet? I say, “we,” because I’ve contributed to air pollution. At the very least, I can still make fewer trips to the store when restrictions are eased. You can read more about how the air is getting cleaner in the following article from The Good News Network.

Landlords of Compassion
The following article reports on landlords who have cancelled rent. David Placek of New Jersey cancelled rent on his 12 properties for the months of April, May, and June.

Feel free to give a shout out if you know a landlord or other business owner cancelling rent or fees. Click here for details.
