“My folks live in another city, we belong to different churches and rarely get to attend services together.

"The time spent at home has been great for my little farm. I have turned canceled vacation plans into funds for expansion of my orchard. With free Saturdays at home, projects long-ignored, like overgrown areas around the place, are being cleaned up and cleared to make more room for planting."
