Unbelievably, it’s the last day of May! Here’s a selection of media morsels from the weekend and (the first half of) today).

Triangle Blog Blog contributor Geoff Green took his e-bike to the farmer’s market and grabbed some locally grown spring flowers! Keep an eye out for upcoming e-bike content on the Blog Blog!



If you missed it this morning, we posted the first installment of Kirk Ross’ cheat sheet for the upcoming legislative short session. Keep it nearby and hold on to your hats! 

A brief guide to our state legislature Part 1

If you’re like some of us, you spent a hefty portion of your weekend watching Stranger Things Season 4 (NO SPOILERS). Not only is this one of the best shows to come out in the last ten years but the creators are from Durham! Did you catch any of the Durham Easter eggs? One standout (in this author’s opinion) is the name of a Hawkins mobile home community – Forest Hills. If you know Durham (or if you’ve watched The Staircase (documentary or HBO)) you’ll know that Forest Hills is home to some of the city’s largest dwellings and wealthiest residents. A little tongue-in-cheek humor from the Duffer Bros.

More local references in Stranger Things (from 2019 – no S4 spoilers!)
