About this blog

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.

After a bit of a break, I’m trying to blog regularly again, so we’ll see how that goes.

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, environment, fun, technology, strange stuff, health, art, and privacy. There’s more, of course — whatever I come across that seems fascinating.

Those of you who have been reading Mirabilis.ca for many years may be wondering where the old content has gone. I’ve removed much of it; sorry. You probably don’t want to hear the long story about that. Suffice to say: you get what you get. Onward!

What does mirabilis mean, anyway?

Mirabilis is one of my favourite Latin words. It means wonderful or astonishing. Pronounciation: mee-RAH-bi-lees.
