Gosh, so much has been going on.
Ukraine, which is out in gamma, is helping itself to all available time. People seem to be using it, and liking it. Others are using it and wondering why Z doesn’t do precisely what they want him to do. To these people I say give him time. Maybe lots of time. The tireless bughunters of ultra-competitive Ukraine-style politics are not your new best friends.
I designed labels for the new cellar. These are going to the printer this week. Much of the 2023 crop is now in casks. It is excellent; I know because I’ve tasted it and, even to my Agrusivka-scorched palate, it is excellent. Some guy from Semihory came through last week and ordered 150 bottles.

That anyone anywhere is so stupid as to take this laughable piece of shit seriously, with his faux-jovial giggling at the dead, his deranged fantasies of multiculturalism and gangrape, his laboured lies on behalf of those whose plan for ‘security’ in the face of genocide is to seize oil under the fuzzy cover of rage against wrong-thinking brown people, his munificent and forgiving massages of hatred among neocon sheep, is beyond me.
