Winter Solstice–Summer Starts Here

According to my latest electronic consumer goody – the iHenge, today is the shortest/longest – depending on where your iHenge is located.

This edifice in Kit Kat Country was built in 1929 by Sam Hill as the US’s first monument to those who died in WWI. Sam Hill also built the Peace Arch that stands on the US/Canadian border and can be seen from the highway as you cross into Canada.

And in the Toronto Ikea parking lot the monkey warms to his new identity: ikea-monkey-coat 
Meanwhile in a London summer, William found that some people have discovered a new use for ice cream cornettos:
