Morning start: Fun fact, weather, and video of the day

Conversation starters to bring up at the office…

Fun Fact of the day:

If you haven’t been told this wisdom, listen up, or actually, just keep reading.

What happens to our bodies after we lived our best years? Our bodies begin to shrink as we get older. And oddly enough, it’s our nose and ears that continue to grow.

If you’re asking how so? It’s because our nose and our ears are made of cartilage and while many people mistakenly believe that cartilage never stops growing, the fact is cartilage does stop growing. However, cartilage is made of collagen and other fibers that begin to break down as we age creating an illusion that our nose and ears are larger.

Today’s weather forecast according to Environment Canada:

No thunderstorms today… The sunshine is here and you bet it’s to stay.
