This week at ABC Wednesday, L is the star of the week.

As I continue with my tour of Canada, for Canada150, my focus is on lakes, of which Canada has many. In fact, Canada has more lakes than any other country.

L is for Lake Louise.

Lake Louise was named for Queen Victoria’s daughter Louise and is a must see when visiting Banff. It was one our stops when we visited Banff on our honeymoon. It was a beautiful spot.

L is also for the Great Lakes, 5 large, beautiful lakes Canada shares with the United States.

Can you name them, identify them on a map?  It takes me a few minutes to remember!

I lived near Lake Ontario much of my early years and my Mother did until she passed away. I have been to each of the Great Lakes and they all have much to offer for visitors.

 

ABC Wednesday is a fun meme to take part in, a weekly challenge that many around the world participate in. Come and join in the fun.

 

21-K by Roger

K is for Knowledge

I’ve been a librarian for 25 years, come October 19 of this year. The great thing about that is that almost every day, I learn something new, something I might not have thought to look up but nevertheless I find useful.

I have been blogging for 12.5 years, come November 2. Usually I have a pretty good idea what it is I write. But I often have to fact check bits and pieces. When DID that album come out? What year was she born? What I have discovered is if you get one fact wrong, people will dismiss the entire premise of your argument.-

Just this week, some guy at the bus stop had a schedule for a suburban bus that wouldn’t arrive for another three hours. I happened to know that a bus coming in the next 20 minutes would at least get him close to his destination far sooner. On the same day, I helped a young man put his bike on a bus, something I didn’t know first time out either.

I have a teenager, so all SORTS of stuff that I wouldn’t otherwise have even cared about is in my brain.

A surprising bit of trivia I know. Occasionally, it comes in handy.

The point at which you think you know it all should never come.
