No. 342: Bill Murray ages, IDAs erupt, China conquers the world and cider rules (and cider donuts, mmmm…)

The end is nigh: And so’s the beginning, as another workweek sets and a well-earned weekend dawns. Congratulations, friends, you made it. It’s Friday, Sept. 21, and a busy one at that – the International Day of Peace (established in 1981 by a unanimous U.N. resolution), Independence Day in Armenia, Belize and Malta and the last full day of Summer 2018, with the sun crossing the Earth’s equator into the Southern Hemisphere at 9:54 p.m….
