Atlanta Buckhead Midtown:

Wherever you are in Atlanta, Buckhead, Midtown, Westside, Virginia Highlands, Cascade or even Lenox, you will have noticed that Solid Waste Removal has been slightly "hit or miss" since Covid-19 attacked our lives.

Isolated Living - Boarders Defeat Loneliness
 
In Atlanta, Buckhead, Midtown and the Westside, Covid-19 created months of isolation for many people who were accustomed to being around others all the time.
In fact, I was no exception. Being alone was a new experience for me after over fifty years of marriage and raising five children, all successfully living their lives with three of them and all the grandchildren far away in other states. Turns out it was very lonely in the house.
So I decided to take in Boarders and that has made all the difference. In fact, life … (12 comments)

2-Step Authentication Online Now Essential
 
 
In Atlanta Buckhead Midtown and everywhere else, 2-Step Authentication Online is now essential. Long gone are the days of one password for everything each of us does online. LONG GONE...
In a previous post about using online group chat interactions to Video Challenge Social Distancing, Discord, Zoom, FaceTime and DUO  were mentioned. Since 2015, Discord has bolstered interactions for gamers. Due to the astronomical increase of usage, Discord added 2Factor Authentication as a feature to its application.

See Amazing Kindness 
"Love Beyond Walls"
 

 
 
In 2004, Terence Lester decided to do something about the condition of the homeless people in Atlanta. He created a 401(c)3 charity called Love Beyond Walls. His dream is to expand the group's programs from here to the rest of the country. His efforts have included the Dignity Museum and serving meals to feed the homeless as well as clothing distribution and hygiene kit distribution for the homeless people in Atlanta.

What part of FLATTEN THE CURVE eludes some people?
If each of us is very careful and stays away for others, we have a small chance of dropping the rate of new COVID-19 infections in Atlanta and elsewhere.
 
YOU CAN SAVE THE LIFE OF ANOTHER PERSON BY STAYING AWAY FROM OTHERS.
 
 
The Washington Post article about the exponential spread of a virus if unchecked offers several dynamic graphics. This article made a believer out of me -- for sure.

covid19: Are Real Estate Agent Activities Essential Services? - 03/24/20 10:26 PM
Dear Readers, 
Michelle Cherie Carr Crowe asks some thought-provoking questions in this post. Her ideas are worth reading carefully.
 
On Monday, March 23, 2020, the Mayor of Atlanta issued an Executive Order mandating a  14-day "Stay At Home" period. However, real estate activities were designated "professional services" and as such, are allowed to continue.
 
 The Atlanta Board of Realtors issued a statement:
"While urgent real estate business can continue, we encourage you to follow the intent of the Executive Order and conduct your business in a safe manner."
 
 
Wishing you and yours - Family and Clients - health and safety during this difficult time. 
All the best - Lynn

Atlanta Buckhead Midtown -
COVID-19 and The Planet Mars -
Perspective
 
 
In Atlanta Buckhead Midtown Westside and everywhere else, confronting the ramifications of COVID-19 leads us to reflect on the concept of perspective - let's use the Panet Mars* as a counterpoint. Perspective reflects an attitude toward or a way of regarding something. Daily we learn more about the planet and daily we learn more about the virus. One thing we know about both COVID-19 and the planet Mars is that neither is under human control at the moment. (Further down in this post, you will find an amazing video from Mars.)
What we can control is our own personal and professional … (5 comments)

"Lockdown”

Yes there is fear.
Yes there is isolation.
Yes there is panic buying.
Yes there is sickness.
Yes there is even death.
 
But,
They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise
You can hear the birds again.
 
They say that after just a few … (4 comments)
