@chrislatray @daily_montanan Truly, truly sucks. 😠 @amandafortini spot on. @KBabstock They remind me of my Ottawa childhood. An apple peel in a bag of brown sugar prevents it from going rock hard. @KBabstock Peanut butter? @HubbardJeff This is such a great film. Saw it a while ago and it has stayed with me. @HubbardJeff Truly so. Unfathomable. And the fallout will be seen and felt for a long time to come. @HubbardJeff In a ghoulish way, looking at the UK might cheer you up? It’s horrendous here. 😢 @graciepeng @quiarahudes @WmCollinsBooks @EmmaPidsley @HarperInsider @IndieThinking That’s lovely.
