Fun facts:  Dief and I share a birthday.  He also put my grandfather out of work.  This is apparently a real quotation from a real speech.  I’m about 3/5ths of the way through this book about the Prime Ministers of Canada.  When I was growing up, my mum was concerned that I was only ever reading science fiction and wanted me to read some biography or history or literature to round me out.  Turns out that I am actually interested in these things now that I am mostly grown up.  I have in my stack of library books right now Pierre Berton’s work on the War of 1812 which I’m hoping to get to before it is due back.
