Morning Start: Foot bones don’t harden until you’re an adult

Your morning start for Tuesday, April 13, 2021

Expect a whole lot of blue skies and golden sunshine this week, as there isn’t a day where temperatures won’t be reaching double-digit highs during the daytime.

Fun Fact of the day: Foot bones don’t harden until you’re an adult

According to the Ontario Society of Chiropodists, the bones in our foot are completely hardened at around 21 years of age. The group notes that while our bodies are made up of 206 bones, we walk around with 52 bones in our feet — 26 in each foot — which means that more than a quarter of our body’s bones is in our feet. Of the 26 bones in each foot, 14 are found in the toe; each toe has three bones, while the big toe only has two.

Although current provincial health orders prohibit restaurants, pubs and bars from offering indoor dining services, wineries can still host indoor samplings of their products.

According to Miles Prodan, the president and CEO of Wine Growers British Columbia (WGBC), wineries were partially spared by provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry’s latest “circuit breaker” health restrictions because wine tastings are viewed as a retail necessity, not a social gathering.

“You wouldn’t buy a pair of pants without trying them on; you don’t buy a wine without having a taste,” Prodan said.
