I used to see lots of calendars with Sunday as the last day of the week, not many recently though.
There is a push on these days (I’ve particularly seen it with Scouts Canada) to strongly discourage using trees due to the potential to attract bears and other wildlife.

I read a science fiction novel many years ago that dealt with the question of why the people of the future would even bother to thaw out the frozen individuals (unfortunately can’t remember the name). The protagonist had his terminally ill wife frozen, then spent years building a career where he would have important information that would be valuable to historians but wasn’t ever put into books so he could have himself frozen with the expectation that future historians would want to thaw him out and get that information.
My 9 year old daughter is like this, you’d think she was being tortured.
I think that is meant to be Phil Frank, who first created the comic (looks like a picture of him).
Despite our cold winters, all the ice cream stores around here are open all year. When I was young some of them closed for the winter, but they’d usually go out of business pretty fast. It can’t be a good business model to only sell your product for a few months while paying for space all year.
Yeah, I think the strip ended not long after this one.
