The look-up name for that in grocery stores I go to is anise. Figured that out after a couple of confusing moments at the check out.

Here in Alaska, male mosquitos are critical for pollination of our beloved and abundant wild tundra blueberries.

Thanks for the AMA! Very interesting.

I hear a lot about how the US isn't training people for the trades any more , so it can be hard to find skilled workers. In your experience, is that true?

Second question, ever work with any ladies in your trade? I'm a female & work on job sites sometimes in an inspector role. Never seen a female doing anything other than flagging, even the stuff that doesn't require a lot of strength. Most of the time it's 100% dudes and me (really no bad experiences on my part, pretty much always treated with professionalism). Are women just not interested in the work, or do they get run off?
