It's been really interesting for me to hear about similar stories happening in other states during the last few decades. Did they try to cut personal property tax in VA? Dunleavey just wants to cut and slash without doing any building up and our budget and coffers is already taking big hits because of his actions. A huge portion of our southeast communities has been literally stranded in their towns/villages because he decided it was right to shut down the ferry system. We are massive state, getting around isn't easy and the ferry was one of or the only option for a lot businesses in those communities to resupply. Which in turn makes the communities short supplied.

I was curious about it! Haha figured I'd call out and see who answered

I mean Herbert's "Dune" is an absolute classic and can easily be taken in as just one book without delving into the series. I'm also a big Kim Stanley Robinson fan and really loved his book "2312" for its seemingly very realistic depiction of humanity in the far future. Very hard-science fiction which can make it a little dense at times but well worth it in my opinion.

"Lullaby" I've just always loved the way it rolls off the tongue.

Always on the lookout for good books like this so thanks for the link! I haven't fermented any beverages before yet but I am familiar with fermented foods. Look forward to hearing the results of your cider experiment!

Happy Hub-day! I've been enjoying our games of Go! Would love to see a more detailed post on your cider. I've been gathering the equipment for a go at mead but love a good homemade cider.

Good read. Interesting and little scary. I had to admit I chuckled a good bit about Adam Neumann's company WeWork transitioning to WeCompany in order to start up real-estate and education missions. It automatically brought to mind the book We by Yevgeny Zamyatin. Maybe he wasn't so wrong in his prediction....
