My wife loves the Aperol version. I think of it as a bit like a Pimm's Cup in that the core of the drink is the apertif and the concept. But lots of things can be used as the other ingredients as long as you understand the target you are trying to hit and have decent sense on how ingredients work in a drink.
Well this isn't really an issue of fiscal (or monetary) policy. At least not directly. But I am only pointing out that the EU does, in fact, result in the surrender of a tremendous amount of sovereignty and it is not merely administrative. The effects are meaningful.

On my way out of town today I decided to switch to a watch with a day counter since it may be hard to keep track of elapsed days where I am but I might need to stay in touch with people back home on occasion and it would be useful to know the date. The day counter is a good way to keep track of elapsed days and I advanced it to today's date as a proxy for the date. Mine counts 31 days, so would someone remind me to reset it at the end of the month? June has 30 days and I...
Fuck you all
How good is Rose, now? I haven't seen him in a few years and thought his career was done.
