Time to start scooping. Over the years we have had scoops from almost every state in the Union and several other countries - but Tennessee, Texas, Alabama and Oklahoma always seem to lead the way. As I was going to press earlier today I thought we had hit the first time we only had scoops from two states (Alabama & Tennessee) when one came through from Florida. So, almost. As always - let me know what I’ve missed. I don’t mind hearing what I got wrong or what I’ve left off. Heard this morning from a friend about a church that was open but he could not find on “scoops” - it was - back in January :). Some places stay open longer than others. I’ve looked into other ways of listing scoops that would keep it all together but so far I’ve not found one. Thanks for reading and thanks for sharing.
BUT first - do you get and take our weekly surveys or polls? It's quick, easy and interesting - check out this week's - https://goo.gl/iFeJSR. Join the 250-500 who regularly help us learn more about each other.
