What is Mirabilis.ca?
It’s a weblog, which means you’ll find links and commentary, regularly updated. You’ll find new content here almost every day.
I started Mirabilis.ca (in 2002!) because it seemed that I was forever sending email to friends, telling them about some cool site I’d found. Finally I decided that it would be easier to list my finds on a website, and here it is.
What kind of topics does this blog cover?
In the past few years, the things I’ve blogged about have fit mostly within these categories: history and archaeology, books and lit, language, food, religion, animals, insects, etc, language, environment, fun, technology, strange stuff, health, art, and privacy. There’s more, of course — whatever I come across that seems fascinating.
Where are the old archives?
Those of you who have been reading Mirabilis.ca for years (I started this blog in 2002) may be wondering where the old content has gone. I’ve removed much of it, and will probably remove more. You get what you get.
What does mirabilis mean, anyway?
Mirabilis is one of my favourite Latin words. It means wonderful or astonishing. Pronounciation: mee-RAH-bi-lees.
