Now's the time --
So, we all seem to have some extra time on our hands these days. Even with things starting to open up, many of us are still being cautious. You may need something to fill some time - maybe you haven't gone back to work yet, or you need some new ideas. Have you ever thought about - or taken any online classes? There are tons of things available - and now with many schools and universities being closed due to Covid, many colleges are offering free or deeply discounted courses.
