I hope everyone is using this slow down as an opportunity to reexamine our lives and daily routines, as well as spend time with those whom we love. Embrace this time as not only a challenge, but a positive opportunity. In perspective not a lot is being asked of us - I saw a meme that the Greatest Generation was asked to go overseas and kill or die, we are just asked to stay home.

To set the example, my teenage daughter has heard way more of me than she intended and I have already composed an article on "red cover" Victory over Germany medal documents I have been intending to tackle for a while but never seemed to find the time (if you'd like to preview or think you have something to add, send me a PM).

As a financial incentive and stimulus to restart the economy and my devastated retirement coffers , I will reopen my offer to encourage articles on Soviet militaria and medals collecting. For every article published between now and the end of the year I will offer $50 credit or if you prefer, $20 cash via Paypal. I will even offer to edit, proofread, or peer review if you would like. I'd like everyone to take advantage, but just to keep me from going under I'll have to limit it to $250 total - first come, first serve.

Stay motivated and healthy! (and my wife reminds everyone to enforce social distancing).

OK - almost two weeks and crickets are chirping. I'm upping to $100 credit, $50 cash, and $400 total maximum. I'm starting to feel like a reckless politician or Crazy Eddie .
