Hey, I’m back from vacation! Yes, I’m fully back this week… Well, except that Thursday and Friday are vacation days as well. But still, it’s more like “business as usual” as compared to last week.

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s the Wedding Day of Queen Elizabeth II. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).

Give the gift of food this holiday season. Children’s Dentistry of Wakefield is having a food drive from now until Dec. 19. For more info, click here.

“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.” – Bob Ross. The Courthouse Center for the Arts is looking for art submissions for a December show. For more information, click here.

Sign up for our daily newsletter! Hey, I realize we have a lot of neat features and knick-knacks on the site, so it can be confusing to keep up with it all. Want just one simple, easy to read daily digest? Sign up for our e-mail newsletter here then. It comes out between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. roughly, every single day of the week. Amazing, I know!

Bleep bloop bleep! On this day in 1985, Windows 1.0 was released.

“Folks, I can tell you I’ve known eight presidents, three of them intimately.” – Joe Biden. Happy 70th birthday to the vice president!
