Fun facts: Â Dief and I share a birthday. Â He also put my grandfather out of work. Â This is apparently a real quotation from a real speech. Â I’m about 3/5ths of the way through this book about the Prime Ministers of Canada. Â 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. Â Turns out that I am actually interested in these things now that I am mostly grown up. Â 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.
