So much to fear from NKhttps://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/north-korea-accidentally-hit-one-of-its-own-cities-with-a-missile-report-says/ar-BBHQ84c?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartanntp
They are years away from a targeting and guidance system. Let alone a missile that can handle the payload. It is like worrying about your neighbor's kid who just got a bb gun and still has no idea how to shoot.

Yeah, we have a great place. I have to pinch myself from time to time to make sure I am not in a dream. Bought it in 1999. Classic old hill farm up on high ground with a 180 degree, 60 mile view over to the White Mountains of NH, with a smaller sub-range of the Green Mountains in the foreground. Post and beam Cape house with connected barn-with a horse in it-that dates from the 1840s. Stone foundation with full basement. The House was gutted out by a previous owner and re-done with good insulation, double paned windows, etc. We've also done a fair amount of work on it ourselves-new standing seam metal roof, refinished the wide pine board floor in one half of the downstairs, hard rock maple floor in other half, and other projects. Burn 3-4 cords of hard wood and appx 500 gallons of No. 2 oil to heat it. There was a separate dairy barn, but it was taken down in the 1970s. Originally the farm was 244 acres. Previous owner still owns 100+/- acres, but he lives in Burlington so he isn't around much. We also co-own with our neighbor another 77 adjoining acres that we jointly bought 10 years ago so that no other houses would get built nearby. It is a lot of work and expense to keep the house up, keep the fields mowed, saw out blow downs on the woods trails, and having just turned 60 I'm beginning to wonder, but I figure I can handle it for at least ten more years. We see moose, bear, deer, coyotes, turkeys and more. Regular Wild Kingdom scene. On a dead end dirt road, but only 8 miles to Montpelier waaay down in the valley and my office. Truly blessed.
