Elevated surfaces will ‘freeze’ and cause problems first.

Use caution while driving.  The latest road conditions: www.DriveNC.gov

Going ‘all’ natural?  Pharmacy giant CVS said it will stop significant ‘touchups of images’ used in its advertising for beauty products.  The reason: Stop sending messages of unrealistic body images to girls and young women.

CVS Corp. will not “materially” alter photos used in stores, on websites and on social media by changing a model’s shape, size, skin or eye color or wrinkles, with a policy to be implemented by the end of 2020.  https://goo.gl/gLYhHa

 

Edwin Hawkins, prominent gospel singer best known for his crossover hit “Oh Happy Day” passed away from pancreatic cancer on Monday.  He was 74.

BTW: “Oh Happy Day”- an 18th century hymn arranged by Hawkins in call-and-response style -featured the vocals of Dorothy Combs Morrison, was released as a single credited by the Edwin Hawkins Singers and became a ‘million-seller’ in 1969.     https://goo.gl/xgbvjx

 

Beyond comprehension:  A father and mother are in jail in southern California today, accused of torture, holding their own children captive, and shackling some of them to their beds.  David Turpin (57) and his wife Louise (49) 13 children, ages 2 to 29, were held in dungeon-like conditions and said to be starving.     “The Turpins were considered a good Christian family in their neighborhood. The children were reportedly home-schooled and would sometimes memorize long passages of the Bible.” *The distraught grandparents said they couldn’t understand “any of this.”    https://goo.gl/gTr36A

 

Reminder: Temporary visitor restrictions are now in place at area hospitals – for children 12 and under – through the remainder of the flu season.

Flu season unfortunately is ‘peaking’ in North Carolina…

Bottom line: If you are sick, you should stay home!

The CDC is showing ‘widespread’ flu in NC.  You can be contagious 24 hours before AND up to two weeks after you start showing symptoms of the Flu. *Tamiflu is in very high demand, but available.    https://www.novanthealth.org/
