Yes, 2020 is officially halfway over. If you are still working and sane, well, congratulations. The second half will be much better, right?...right?


This is a photo of the beaches in the UK on a recent weekend. Prime example of social distancing. It begs the question - why are events still illegal there?

This photo of employees at Lisbon's Holiday Inn Porto Gaia is buzzing. The internet loves the photos of the employees with and without masks. Great example of effective marketing here. ๐Ÿ”ฅ
