The old Yellow Pages ad campaign stated, “Let your fingers do the walking,” and now that America is being asked to quarantine ourselves at home, that concept is more apropos than ever.  Here are some suggestions that will allow you and your family to let your fingers do the keyboard tapping and enjoy some quality time from the comfort and safety of your home.
