Stone sculpture "Little Champion, Le Petit Champion" installed in 2014, donated and created by Dr. Harry Rosen, a professor of dentistry from McGill University.

Sparkler means no candles to blow out. Departing from usual cake to accommodate preferences, donuts are less sweet, and the banana bread is even less. Packaging says plant-based, gluten-free, peanut-free, nut-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free and sesame-free, leaving us wondering what ingredients could potentially still be on the list.

Working from home, new workplace arrangement, as office sent me a 27" monitor for laptop. I already had a laptop and and monitor, plus computer tower under desk. Setup with cleaning took 3 hours of company time, a slow day on a holiday weekend. More tweaks are expected, I spend many so many hours at the keyboard.
