Coincidence just realized

I don't think that "Osnabruck" (or spell it with an umlaut or with the letter "e" following the "u") is a geographic name that comes to mind often. My Latin teacher was born in the German one and I used to visit relatives who were residents of the Canadian one. I will always have fond memories of that teacher, who taught us lots of German drinking songs, in addition to seeing us through Caesar, Cicero, and Virgil and the like. The farmland that I knew, with dairy and hay operations and lots of oats in the fields as well, disappeared to make way for the Saint Lawrence Seaway.
