Old Notebooks Larry Clark and I Once Had a Math Teacher like This!



I was checking out the tables and a lot of terms are archaic or not in use even in my school days. i. e. 1 solid foot (cubic now). “aliquot parts of a pound”, and when was the pound worth $4.86C? Google: didn’t help much other than the $4.86 rate was in effect from the mid 1800s to the 1930s. 
one example: 
Student Life in English Canada during the Thirties (Montreal and Kingston 1990), pp. … The pound sterling was worth $4.86.

Check the “Long Measure”, Interesting?

Thanks Larry for these!

November 28 Update— I saw the movie on Showcase this weekend.. LOVED it!!

The film The Rooftop Christmas has been filming in Almonte for the past few weeks. Today they were filming a “courtroom” scene in the council chambers inside the Carleton Place Town Hall. I posted a snippet of their last Christmas movie at the end of this blog, and most of their films (Johnson Production group)  are seen on the Hallmark Channel.

The star Michelle Morgan is best known for the series Heartland and was also in Supernatural as Jemma Verson. Tim Reid is also in the movie and known for many popular roles, especially That 70s Show.
