I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to support a local business with a positive review or friendly message.
I like supporting local people, and try to do it regularly. Recently we were on vacation in the Colorado mountains, in a place we go often. There are a few restaurants that we visit often, like the Dam Brewery or Dos Locos.
This time, as we were driving around, I saw a new place, the Eclectic Bar and Grill. I pulled in, thinking to just try a new place.
It was fantastic, and quiet on a late afternoon. We ended up talking with the manager and praising the menu and food, which was great. I also took time to drop a review on Google. Hopefully they get popular enough to stay in business.
