679 is a song by Fetty Wap. No, I don't know either. I assume it has both the hippin' and the hoppin'.

681 AD, the Byzantines were embroiled in one of their interminable wars in the Balkans. One of the Constantines murdered his brothers and bought off the Bulgars. Just an ordinary year in the Empire.

Diamond Bus North West's route 683 goes: Leigh - Atherton - Tyldesley - Atherton - Leigh

"North West" is, of course anglocentric. Leigh is 300 miles south-south-east of here.

In Brandenburg, however, bus line no. 684 of the statewide public transport system takes the route from Rathenow via Stechow - Rhinsmühlen - Kotzen - Landin - Kriele - Briesen to Friesack.

A great 19th Brandenburgian poet and novellist, Theodor Fontane, once remarked, quirkily if you're from Friesack, your name shouldn't be Raul. Which was undoubtedly true in the 19th century and isn't entirely wrong even in the 21st.

One of the most important, and little known, battles in the history of Scotland took place in 685 - the Battle of Dun Nechtain. Northumbrian King Ecgfrith comes north to teach the Picts a lesson, against the counsel of his advisors, and is heavily defeated by Pictish King Bridei III. Ecgfrith and most of his army are killed, and it's (permanently) the end of Northumbrian power and influence up here.
