Ed Hessler

From CGEE, Hamline University, welcome to March 26 2021, day 85. Percentage-wise 23.29% has been spent which is equal to 122,400 minutes. Sunrise is at 7:03 am and sunset at 7:38 pm and in between those times there will be 12h 29m 19s of sunlight. There is light here but it is overcast and the wind makes it chilly.

Foodimentary says it is National Nougat Day about which I knew nothing. There you will learn how it is made, some facts and some food history.

Today's Quote. Shobita Parthasarathy, writing for Slate, If the past year has taught us anything, it's that broad social trust is crucial to successful public health initiatives and, ultimately, to our survival."

On Monday poet Billy Collins celebrated his 80th birthday. The Writer's Almanac posted this poem by Collins for the occasion. And if you scroll down you will find more information about Collins, a great gift to American poetry.
