OESH asks trivia question and enjoys a Good Friday in Charlottesville!

On Easter weekend it’s always fun to move outside the box a bit. Though routines are great, we don’t want them turning into ruts!

As such, QUESTION: Where is Friesland and Who is the famous Emo of Friesland?

ANSWER: From the University of Oxford website (www.ox.ac.uk)…Holland, once the home of innovative footwear (top photo), produced the first international student attending Oxford–the vaunted abbot, Emo–in 1190. In the inimitable Oxonian way, it’s also noted that this “was centuries before most of today’s leading universities existed”.

Though we’re surely delighted Emo matriculated, we’re even more thrilled that we’ve bested his native land when it comes to a superior footwear idea (below photo).

Onward!
