  6. I did take an opportunity to see The Farewell, and enjoyed it very much. The dialogue was not very difficult to follow , but I am certainly not at a level where I could have understood it without reading the subtitles. I may check into the Library to see if they might have Chinese original programming on DVD. This challenge may span over into next year, and frankly however long it takes, I am up to the challenge. I have always had a love for linguistics, and there are aspects of Mandarin I find fascinating. I hope to reward myself with a trip Zhengzhou once I have reached a comfortable level of both speech and understanding.
  7. I have been watching the news often. The dialects are the most difficult to discern from. Im wondering if perhaps there is an Chinese “Hulu” I could subscribe to that streams soap operas or episodic shows. I haven’t given up.
  8. I present to you Pumpkin Spice Spam. Ridiculous indeed, and Food and Wine has taken the leap and has already tried it.
  9. Seedlip acquired by Diageo! Forbes.com
  10. Link to tickets I thought I added a link to this event, but I guess I did not.
  11. My favorite from the comments, "All those White House tourists will descend upon it like locusts. It'll print money." This is a fact.
