Repairing Things by Bard

Repairing Things

The art of repair is a noble one,
It takes skill and patience,
And a love of things well-made.

When something is broken,
It’s often easier to throw it away,
But taking the time to fix it
Can be a rewarding experience.

There’s a sense of satisfaction
In bringing something back to life,
And knowing that you’ve made it last.

So if you’re feeling handy,
Give repair a try.
You might just be surprised
At what you can accomplish.

The broken pieces of a vase
Can be glued back together,
And the cracks can be filled with gold.

A torn shirt can be sewn,
And a broken heart can be healed.

Anything is possible
If you have the will to repair it. – Bard

This isn’t a free market. The government is picking the winners.

The SBA recently released the data of bailout recipients.  I just found out that one of my direct competitors got $150,000 from the federal government.  They are a small shop like mine.  The only difference is that they were in business making money before COVID 19.  Tech Fixers applied for the same program and got $0 because I started the business in 2020. 

I heard from my business consultant about a business that closed, fired all their employees, put their FAMILY on the payroll and collected the government money.  Totally legal.
