I had joined a band right before the lockdowns hit here. We were able to get two rehearsals in and we started writing a sing called, "We Got Them Quarantine Blues". I think the singer has a few verses written now.
"They have a consciousness, they have a life, they have a soul! Damn you! Let the rabbits wear glasses! Save our brothers! Can I get an amen?"
You've just made me notice that I don't know the plural of haiku
Dammit, you made me check it.
Seems there is no agreement on this, according to Merriam-Webster it is Haiku.
Oxford claims haiku and haikus are both fine.
Cambridge says haiku.
According to MacMillan it's haiku.
But Heinemann also means that both are fine.
Yesterday I learnt that more than half the ethanol producers in the USA have closed and ceased operations on a temporary basis, due to covid19. As far as I know, they produce ethanol by fermentation. Fermentation produces large quantities of carbon dioxide as a byproduct, which the ethanol producers sell, mostly to brewers, to add fizz to their beers.
Now the brewers are complaining of a shortage of CO2, that is hampering the production of beers! This is getting serious! Are people going to start hoarding beer now? I noticed on Thursday that almost every customer coming out of the grocery store had beer in the trolley.
To tell the truth, I'm more of a red wine drinker but my wife bought a big "bag in a box" of Chardonnay by accident. As the box had a purple color she assumed that it was red wine
But as it is nice sunny weather now, a cool glass of Chardonnay is palatable ...
I used to be as well. But I have moved past box wines.
In all seriousity, I'm drinking as much white as red wine nowadays. I have learned that good white whines usually have better price/value than red ones.
Try a bottle of Egon Müller, Keller or Robert Weil to a well made Schnitzel with white asparagus some time and you will understand what I mean.
And everyone should have a bottle of Chateau d'Yquem on their bucket list.
That sounds like good advice, I saw a documentary about the Rhine river recently and of course Rheinwein was mentioned. It was known as a quality wine in the past, but then they spoilt it by mass producing it and adding sugar. Now it will be hard to get rid of the imago of "cheap rubbish"
