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.
