Some short notes about May 4th, 2012:
- Apparently today is Star Wars Day. It must be thanks to this serendipitous pun: May the fourth be with you.
- Today is when our Royal Canadian Mint stops issuing our beloved/much hated/pick your adjective penny. Goodbye little one-cent coin. You will be missed sentimentally, but my coin purse will be so happy that you are gone.
- Today is my niece’s birthday. Happy birthday!
- Twelve years ago today, I was on top of the Yellow Mountains (Huangshan) in China among the throngs of domestic tourists during their Golden Week of travel for May 1st holidays.
