A plum dumpling is a perfect universe: the first encounter with granular, sugary crumbs; the dense, substantial wrapping that you sink your teeth into; and the juicy, sweet, and sometimes tart Italian prune plum center that veers toward sublime.
This protected German fruit has its own representative queen.
Romania is the fourth largest producer of plums in the world (after China, Serbia, and the United States), and 75 percent of Romanian plums become tsuica. Palinka and Hornica, tsuica twice or thrice distilled, are strong and flavorless but will result in a plume of warmth from stomach to skull.
A peach is like your mother: It’s always there for you. A nectarine is like your girlfriend: It’s something really dear and special. A plum is like a harlot down the street: It’ll screw you every time.
Indeed, the nutritional benefits of plums are many: high fiber, potassium, beta-carotene, and boron — which helps bone development, muscle coordination, and testosterone levels.

By August there are oval, coral-red, or yellow-red plums on the trees. Few are perfect; most have small white larvae inside, larvae which were deposited as eggs in the ovaries of the flowers long ago in April. The plums fall, are pecked by robins. The stony seeds are gathered by chipmunks and wood mice and squirrels who find the nut inside a toothsome morsel on a [winter’s] day.

German Unity Day 2021: Date and history
Historically, Germany has associated various dates with its nationhood and unity. However, to look back at the history of German Unity Day, it all began when the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic unified in 1990 to mark the first-ever single German state.
Interestingly, the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989, which marked the end of the Cold War, paved the way for German reunification. The Unification Treaty was signed on September 20, 1990, and declared October 3 as the national holiday which ultimately sealed the end of the division of Germany.
The reunification was formally completed on October 3, 1990, and since then, German Unity Day is observed every year on this day in the country.

With the successful conclusion to the celebrations of D-Day + 75 in Normandy, France, some of the Douglas C-47s from the D-Day Squadron, along with others based in Europe, have continued on wards to Germany to help celebrate the 70th anniversary of the successful conclusion of the Berlin Airlift.
As a result of this brave effort to keep West Berlin safe, the Berlin Airlift is seen in enormously high regard in Germany today, and celebrated accordingly. Several events have taken place in the nation to celebrate the 70th anniversary of its conclusion with a number of Douglas C-47s flying in to air bases at Wiesbaden and Faßberg in the past two days. In particular, one of the veteran pilots of the Berlin Airlift, Gail Halvorsen flew into Wiesbaden aboard the D-Day Squadron’s C-47 Skytrain Placid Lassie. Halverson, became famously known as the “Candy Bomber” because he began the practice of dropping sweets on tiny parachutes fashioned from handkerchiefs to the children in West Berlin as his cargo plane approached touchdown in the besieged city back in 1948.
