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.
