In this case I am referring to the app “Too Good To Go” Do you know that fighting food waste also helps the planet by reducing global warming? At the “Too Good To Go” website you can learn all of the details at the food waste knowledge hub. The company was created in Denmark in 2015. Read more at the Wikipedia link.

A recurring theme on my blogs for June 2021 is the importance of using sunscreen SPF (sun protection factor), for anyone who finds themselves “under the sun“. Summer months are a period where you may find yourself spending more time on the beach or just outside for long periods of time. It is ESSENTIAL that you protect yourself and other family members. Babies could use a hat also on the beach.
Those of you who follow my blogs are aware of the fact that I search the web to find the best information that I feel worthwhile sharing. Such is the case for this quote from the Better Health Channel. It is one of the most popular health and medical websites in Australia. In fact, it’s their No. 1 health and Medical website. Below is a quote from their website:
Are you remembering the ‘good ole days’ when gathering together for an afternoon of fun was not a COVID-19 health issue? I think we all are nostalgic about those times. As a matter of fact, some of us are ‘sick and tired’ of following the ‘rules’.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted ‘normal’ everyday socializing. And we are all feeling the strain of not having time together.
FYI – The good news is that there are Apps, like UnityLink, which can be used to assist you in having a reasonably safe way of gathering with family and friends. I am encouraged that in the days ahead, these types of tools will be used more frequently.

I am always looking for technology that helps us to lead our lives a bit more stress less in ways that we may not have thought of, especially during this challenging time of Covid19.
