Gauging Horticulture’s Place in the General Public’s Consciousness

October 16, 2021 Cincinnati, Ohio Dear Marianne, So good to receive your letter dated September 2nd. Is it possible that it’s already October 16th? I no longer have any sense for time.

Kyrie’s absence has a huge impact on NBA betting

The route to back to back NBA Championships looks an awful lot easier for the Milwaukee Bucks following the news that Kyrie Irving won’t be playing for the Brooklyn Nets for the foreseeable future It’s a unique issue but one that had only one answer that was ever going to make sense.
