Frederick McKinley Jones' invention of automatic refrigerator equipment helps us in our everyday lives. His invention allows large trucks to transport perishable products without spoiling which helps deliveries to grocery stores, blood banks, and medicines to hospitals. His original design was modified so it could be outfitted for trains, boats, and ships to service other industries. Between 1919 and 1945 he patented more than 60 inventions, 40 of which were in refrigeration. He died in 1961 and in honor of his efforts, he was awarded posthumously with the National Medal of Technology making him the first Black inventor to receive the honor. 

As free citizens it’s hard to wrap your head around shutdowns and lockdowns. It was quite refreshing in March of 2020 working remotely if you could. but news about lockdowns in China is happening, now. I like to be the bearer of good news, but what if we get locked down in our homes? Check your pantries for staples, plant your gardens and figure out what friends and family you could bunker with. As Shanghai expands Covid-19 lockdown it effects 26 million.

Without having friends and family in China, our connection are those products we depend on. Look in your closet and products to see your China connection. We don’t take it serious until we get the notice that our shipment may take longer than usual. The latest news from Shanghai’s air and ocean ports says it remains open, but labor shortages are slower operations. China has grown to become the third-largest destination for American goods and services.
