Fact of the Day: Future Prime Minister

During a state visit to Canada, President Richard Nixon met with Canada's Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. The Prime Minister's infant son Justin was there and Richard Nixon gave a toast "Tonight we'll dispense with the formalities. I'd like to toast the future prime minister of Canada: to Justin Pierre Trudeau". Justin Trudeau became Prime Minster of Canada in November of 2015.

Our Thanksgiving 2015

We had went to two Thanksgiving dinners this year. The first was at my brother Zach's house. Most of the guests were on his wife's side of the family like usual. We've met several times so it doesn't fell that awkward anymore.

Story: Childhood Fishing

 I was the youngest son of a father who passed away in his 40's, so I didn't get to spend much time with my dad. Though I do remember the first (and only) time he took my brothers and I fishing. I'm not sure what kind of lake or pond he took us to, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was only known by the people who lived nearby. My dad had a fishing rod and we had to share another rod.

Fact of the Day: Dumb Fish

While there are countless types of fish, the vast majority of them have very small brains for their size. Especially in comparison to birds and mammals.
