Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, wasn’t the first to introduce Christmas trees to Britain from his native Germany—Queen Charlotte did that in the late 1700s. But, Victoria and Albert are credited with popularizing the custom in the mid-1800s. (royal.uk)

On a recent flight from Chicago to Iceland, a female passenger went to the airplane bathroom to test for covid ( she had test kits ) after getting a feeling of a very sore throat. Her test came out positive and she had a good heart. She locked herself in the small bathroom for the remainder of the flight ( 5 hrs ) to quarantine away from the other passengers.

I read something interesting. All of the fossil fuels that are in the Earth are the only ones that will be. The reason why is because, back in those times, there were no mushrooms or fungi that break down living matter like it does now. So we will never turn into sludge in the way that the dinosaurs did because of mushrooms.

Michelin stars are highly coveted by elite and upscale restaurants the world over—but they’re actually given out by the Michelin tire company, the same one whose mascot is the marshmallow-like Michelin Man. If you want to get fancy, pronounce it in the original French, “mich-LEH.” (michelin.com)
