  1. Thank you Ftiz for this wonderful podcast that we were able to enjoy together as a family. You provided us with both a verbal pat on the back for our on-line gigs (wife, academic writing/ hubby active on-line options trader) that we have both used to earn from home while the quarantine is in effect. Work for us has continued in an almost normal manner. If anything, I am earning way more than usual due to the extreme high market volatility which jacks up option prices to insane levels. I will gladly trade these high profits for a normal market where people are not suffering!!! In addition, you have inspired us to look at one of our weak areas for possible improvement. We find it scary that my wife’s Mom can not get her maintenance medication in a quantity that would allow her to have several months in stock at home for emergencies such as we are all facing today. Beyond electronic payments to my bride for her work and my regular transfers of retirement money, we today decided we need to set up a better way to pay for things such as the aforementioned medications in emergency situations. We thank you for the great family discussion we had after the podcast with out young troops and our new determination to do even better going forward.
