BJ-“Due to the European wave, we cannot rule out the possibility of a Christmas blockade!”. For months, our case rate has been dazzling-since “Freedom Day” *> 4 million* confirmed cases, every week since July there have been excess deaths-since July-> 20,000. This is not in Europe. It’s on him.

The antidote of the day. Antoine:
Hi NC team, happy fundraising week!
Attached is a very personal antidote: those are my two donkeys and my wife. On the left is Havana, on the right is Cezanne (âne means donkey in French). I am an IT professional. She is a literature teacher who retired as a farmer, with a duck-raising accent. Donkeys will be used as guardians of the herd to fend off the many carnivores that live in rural Quebec. The long-term goal is to prepare for the fall by investing in flexible agriculture and breeding.
Healthy and longevity, prosperity!
