Father and daughter after the previous serious hurricane to badly afflict Newfoundland, at Long Pond opposite Mun university, St. John’s.

Huge admiration and thanks to Doctor Fitzgerald and her team, on this island of Newfoundland for her brilliant husbandry of Covid-19 and variants as a shining example to the rest of Canada and indeed the world.

Also on the plus side, Canada leads in innovative technology it seems. A techie and his co-driver crossed Canada from Vancouver coast to coast to Mile One Newfoundland in their electric car, with a self-charging facility aboard 7% to 97% in 37 minutes. Total cost $400! Way to go!

Inspired by these two, I have evolved my own reductive process to apply to my digital crosswords, and the Jumbos in particular.

A little impromptu interlude from Le Nozze di Figaro – between Contessa (Charlotte) and Susanna (Inês) supervised by their effervescent tutor and accompanist, Paulo – go to 120 if you wish to avoid the preamble!

Her earlier rendition of Ave Maria. Enjoy!
