Sunday Sundries

Miscellaneous items I found of interest during the week.

Happy Valentine's Day! In Ottawa, it's also the day when snow on the ground is deepest - 31 cm. It is cold but we're past the coldest part of the year, the sun rises earlier each day, sets later, and rises higher above the horizon. Let's hope we get an effective vaccine before it all goes into reverse.

Round the Horne: The Eiffel Tower is Stolen
One of many episodes of the BBC radio program from the mid-1960s now on YouTube. Dated in many parts; good for nostalgia. I recall one line from the original broadcast.

MyHeritage presents Abraham Lincoln As You’ve Never Seen Him Before

Durex condoms: how their teenage immigrant inventor was forgotten by history

The science behind why hobbies can improve our mental health

How Long Can COVID Cases Keep Plummeting?

Good news on the Montreal Star digitization
Gail Dever has long been on a campaign. BANQ is to make it happen.
