Margaret Rome's Blog


Not Enough Sanitizer


We take the time to be informed and educated through TV, print media, the internet, Real Estate classes, and online seminars.  This is how we all learn.

This allows us to have good conversations and be quite social. But it can also hold us back by being on information overload.

For me, the highlights of the news are enough. No TV on all day! In fact, no TV. I don't need gallons of hand sanitizer to be safe at this time.

As a former RN, I practice hygiene daily not just when there is a Corona Pandemic. Washing my hands frequently has always been part of my life. Protecting others when there is a cough or sneeze is also a natural reaction and habit.

Just go into any public bathroom and see pocketbooks on the floor. Those same purses come into homes and visitors in hospitals. We see those bags placed on the kitchen counter and on beds. No amount of handwashing or Purell is going to help.




If we limited our obsession with media overload and being so darn educated, it would free up space for us to do some work. 

On my way for my live radio program and a showing right after.
