Gloria Holt, Editor
Greetings – All of us at DME hope this finds you and your families safe and healthy!! There are many challenges facing all of us these days. Several phrases have made their way into our everyday conversations such as “stay-at-home” / “social distancing” / “self-quarantine” / “safer at home” “shelter-in-place” / “self-isolation” and many more. Many of us are telecommuting due to various ordinances from the federal, state, county, and city authorities. 
DME also has many healthcare personnel and first responders out on the “front lines” literally risking their lives in order to keep others safe and healthy – we cannot thank them enough. Please remember:

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

Be kind. Always.

Thank you for your hard work, dedication, and
“Making a Difference in People’s Lives Every Day.” 

Be safe!

How To Find More Balance In Your Life!
If you’re finding it more challenging than ever to juggle the demands of your job and your personal life, you’re not alone.

Especially now that many are quarantined and working from home, the pressure may be compounded if you have family at home too!

You may be putting in extra hours and you may be taking business calls after hours. Let’s face it, most of us spend a majority of our time working....here's some tips to consider to make life more enjoyable!

Focus your time and attention on things that can bring more balance into your daily routine:

  • Being at home provides opportunities to schedule quality time with your family.
  • Use Zoom to visit with your friends so you stay in touch with them during this time of separation.
  • Get out and take a walk around your neighborhood. Walking or biking outside will provide fresh air and a new prospective and will help you recharge. Exercising will boost your energy level and your ability to concentrate.
  • Start your day by waking up earlier and use that time to be productive.
  • Drop activities that sap your time or energy and that don’t enhance your well-being.
  • Set realistic goals.
  • Remember a little relaxation goes a long way.
  • Take a 10-15-minute break to recharge
  • Take a long warm bath using essential oils for more relaxation
  • Read a book or listen to your favorite music.
  • Get a good night's sleep.

Time is like currency; you should spend it wisely!

Never heard of it? It is an object that serves as a plot device in fiction but is ultimately irrelevant. A storytelling technique that serves to further the plot.
Origin: Latin, Late 17th Century
Meaning: Spoken or done without preparation.
"I was surprised to be asked to give an extemporaneous speech at the wedding."
CliffsNotes are study guides that assist college and high school students in their literature course work. CliffsNotes began in 1958 as $1 reprints of Canadian study guides for 16 plays by Shakespeare. At that time, Hillegass worked for big distributor of college textbooks. He knew hundreds of college campus bookstore managers across the country. Those close relationships gave him a foot in the door for the Notes. Sales grew rapidly as high school students began to buy the slim yellow and black pamphlets. In early 1970s the company had created additional study aids--exam reviews, course outlines, law school materials, and test preparation kits for the SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT.
As the company expanded, Hillegass kept its headquarters in Lincoln, Nebraska. Each year he donated 10% of the pre-tax profits to local charities and civic organizations (which, on his death, received half of his estate). Most employees were lifetime Lincoln residents. After he sold the company in 1999, Hillegass endowed a chair in English at the University of Nebraska.
Clifton Hillegass graduated from Midland Lutheran College and then studied physics and geology for two years at the University of Nebraska. He later received four honorary degrees.
Things That Make You Go......Hmmmm?

The fact that Kansas and Arkansas are pronounced differently bothers me way more than it should!

Pronouncing words that end in 'ough'. Cough, bough, rough, dough, through, though.....

Is the "S" or "C" in scent silent?

Why does fridge have a "D" int it, but refrigerator doesn't?

Why are Zoey and Zoe pronounced the same but Joey and Joe aren't?

The word "queue" is just a Q followed by four silent letters?
