June 6

I started off this morning by thinking about, of all things, the Canadian Senate, what its uses are, and whether the country needs it or not.

But then, thanks to a couple of tip-offs via Twitter, I remembered that today, there are other things to think about, and remember, for many different reasons.

About Richard Wintle

I am Canadian by heritage, and a molecular biologist and human geneticist by training. My day job is Assistant Director of a large genome centre, where I do various things along the lines of "keeping the wheels on". In my spare time, I tend to run around with a camera, often chasing race cars, abandoned barns, and sundry wildlife.

    The National day of Sweden! That’s what you were thinking about, right?! Center of the universe, Kingdom of Sweden.
