Canoga Park pub keeps creating happy memories

It was a Monday, Nancy Fairley recalls, the first day she and her husband, Patrick, opened Scotland Yard Pub in Canoga Park in 1988 to a rousing business — one guy sitting alone at the end of the bar nursing a Budweiser.

It wasn’t like they were doing a great business. One customer, one beer all night. At this rate, she and Pat would be out of business and back in Scotland in no time. The guy at the end of the bar came back a few nights later, and did the same thing, but now the bar had a few more customers, and the he didn’t stand out as much.

How to delete a Google Classroom course, or archive it to keep its data and grades

Summary List PlacementGoogle Classroom acts as a virtual learning space, where teachers can hand out assignments, grades, and feedback to everyone in their class.
