Interesting to note that on this date in 1806 the namesake of Vancouver’s Lord Nelson Elementary School & the West End’s Nelson Street, Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson, was laid to rest in St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, UK.
His statue continues to stand tall in London’s Trafalgar Square.
Another item of significance, after 46 years, “in his middleage the “Maytag Repairman” gets a makeover.” Seems he’s been swapped for a newer model.
“In a multimillion-dollar campaign that begins this week, the character will be dressed snappier; played by a more attractive, dimple-chinned, slimmer actor; and will no longer be portrayed as a repairman with nothing to do.”
Cheers to one might say, there always has to be a new spin!…..
No doubt travellers will be happy to hear that Toronto’s Pearson International Airport operations have now returned to “stable” with no major delays or cancellations this morning. The chaotic domino effects at airports around the globe has been a difficult situation for many.
Safe travels folks!…..soar onward!….
Blow, blow, thou winter wind, Thou art not so unkind As man's ingratitude; Thy tooth is not so keen Because thou art not seen, Although thy breath be rude. Heigh-ho! sing heigh-ho! unto the green holly: Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly: Then, heigh-ho! the holly! This life is most jolly. Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky, Thou dost not bite so nigh As benefits forgot: Though thou the waters warp, Thy sting is not so sharp As friend remember'd not. Heigh-ho! sing heigh-ho! unto the green holly: Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly: Then, heigh-ho! the holly! This life is most jolly.
Cheers to an embracing winter kinda Thursday!
