Edmonton blog roundup: March 15, 2016

Vintage Edmonton has coverage of the time The Beatles virtually came to Edmonton.

This week’s blog roundup includes history; feminism and phenomenal women; lessons and learning; business advice and examples; frocks and such; and, of course, opinions of all kinds.
