Dear Kaloud Tribe,

We want to first take a moment to thank all those of you who are working hard to enable the rest of us to live with some measure of security, well-being, and, hopefully, some quantity of Joy in this time. 

To the first responders, caregivers, grocery store employees, warehouse teams, delivery agents, bank tellers, restaurants, shared ride drivers, customer service reps, and all the rest of you--we cannot thank you enough!  You are truly inspiring and examples of the best of what we are.  

For this week’s list, we wanted to share items that bring us Joy and hopefully you will enjoy at least some of them.  

As always, if you have any suggestions of your own, please email them to us.  We love discovering new things through recommendations from others.  We will do our best to share your recommendations with the community as well. 

With that said...
