It is a minor point, really, but by executive fiat, I have decided that from now on, this blog will follow the metric system.
When I was in grade school, I was told that the metric system would soon replace this antiquated British system that was so hard to remember. That did not happen. We still have pounds and gallons and yards. (I once helped my nephew do a science experiment about football kicking. I insisted – much to his chagrin – that all science obeyed the metric system).
Now this blog does too.
