The Valley of the ShadowsBooks

The Valley of the Shadows by John Ringo.
Sci-Fi: Dystopian: 287 pages.
Volume 6 in the series Black Tide Rising.

So this book did not age well. Published in 2018 its absolutely not how a pandemic is handled. Add to that that a story about bankers trying to save themselves in a coming apocalypse is really boring.

Lost a swarmBeekeeping
Went to the hill today to kill some ants before they became a problem. Could hear the buzz of a swarm when as I got there. Took a few minutes to find them, way up in a pine tree. No way to get them down. Will have to remember to check the swarm traps.
