Sunday Sundries

Miscellaneous items I found of interest during the week.

Federal Cabinet recognized for 'Outstanding Achievement' in Government Secrecy

A New Canadian Visual Search Engine

How to Become a Publisher
I came across this after reading a review in Saturday's Globe and Mail of The Third Man: Churchill, Roosevelt and Mackenzie King which comments "The book badly needed another pass by a proofreader." The website of the Canadian publisher, in its second year, Sutherland House, has a series of "How to" articles—How to Write a Book— What Should You Write About—How to Handle Disaster—that inform and entertain. 

Pandemic boredom sparks record drive to prove Loyalist roots

The photo
Responding to comments from those who didn't like two new portraits I tried on the blog I changed it again. What do you think? The new one was taken by Barbara Tose in December 2019. Thanks to Barbara for permission to use it. 

England’s Stonehenge was erected in Wales first

Black History Month

Don’t Go Down the Rabbit Hole
A NYT opinion piece argues critical thinking, as we’re taught to do it, isn’t helping in the fight against misinformation.
