Google’s UncleSam

Did you know Google had a search engine limited to just US Government websites? They call it UncleSam, and its been around since 1999. Just…they don’t link to it with all their other services, so it’s very hard to find out about it.

Stollen

There was some stollen in the office today, and a coworker wanted to know what stollen was. I looked it up on a whim and discovered it has origins around the Christmas holiday and is actually supposed to resemble the Baby Jesus in swaddling clothes.

This, of course, will not prevent me from eating stollen, because stollen is delicious, and its origins are irrelevant.

Another holiday tradition is to eat herring at midnight on New Years. I eat herring year round.
