A friend of mine was out to dinner with his fiancee in Albany on Thursday night and out of nowhere they faced an interesting coronavirus-related dilemma. Neither one of the soon-be-married couple has any of the flu-like symptoms related the pandemic, but they did face a moment where their involuntary actions concerned some people sitting near them in the restaurant.

Saturday, July 14th is International Nude Day. A holiday celebrated all over the world where it's customary for people remove all of their clothing. This is done not only for the freedom it provides but also to celebrate the beauty of the human body and to embrace naturism. How and where you decide to celebrate, is totally up to you.
