Fun Fact of the day:

Ever curious why the keyboard keys aren’t in alphabetical order?

Well, it actually dates back to the time of manual typewrites: When first invented, the keys were actually placed in such an order, but when people typed too fast the mechanical arms attached to each key would become tangled.

Weather forecast according to Environment Canada:

It’s time to bring back out the rain jacket and boots as this week is expected to keep overcast with showers.
