On the homebrew front, there’s a 5-gallon carboy with an India Brown Ale that will start dry-hopping today and will be bottled this weekend. I’ve also got 7 gallons of cider with various combinations of spices, yeast, etc. that should be bottled by Monday too.
I haven’t been able to update lately with all the work I’ve been doing on my research paper for The Welfare State. It’s been a great class so far, though putting together a research paper has been challenging in several ways. Poking around through archives takes a long time when you’re as easily distracted as I am.
On the plus side I find a lot of cool things that provide different perspectives. Like this poster advertising Latin American travel as the “land of business opportunity–a vast market–a great source of supply.” I’m trying to study how US business interests in Latin America are tied in to the process of building a welfare state via international aid (1950s-60s). While this poster is unrelated to social welfare, it does provide an interesting look at general business interest in states south of the border.
