I have heard a couple of things that have baffled me this week. Firstly, thieves stole over a quarter of Canada’s $30 million maple syrup reserves. Why so much syrup? What kind of world are we living in where a country feels the need to stockpile that much liquid sugar? And allow it to be stolen? For Canadians, I guess it’s the equivalent of the Queen being kidnapped. And two, Apple’s rumoured iPad mini. As hard as I try, I’m struggling to make sense of it all.
