    I've always had a liking for Great Books programs and they're not a prolific breed these days. Some might say (with ample justification, I guess) that graduation might involve getting the key to your parents' basement forever - but I think they do have a lot of value in people-building - less in employee-molding, perhaps. Here's a Canadian one I browsed through today. And it has a combined honours option - to broaden the field. One option involves biology, for students intending to enter medical school after graduation.

    So, maybe you won't end up living at home after all...

    Speaking of Ottawa, happy Canada Day, when Father Canuck brings maple sugar and Moosehead to all the good little Canadian boys and girls....

    Thanks, Steve. It's a very quiet Canada Day - thanks to COVID 19. No gatherings, so no fireworks displays etc. I hear there's going to be a light show instead, in Toronto. I think it may be from the CN Tower. I'm holed up here with JAZZ-FM (CJRT-91.1) for company. Later I'll really celebrate - have some Canadian apple juice, put on my mask and walk in the park. It's still open, but no gatherings more than five. I even got to have a Father's day picnic with my sons and a couple of my grandkids.

    We'll get through this - and thanks again
