I set out to learn at least 5 new things every day.

Given that I dabble near daily in papal history or astronomy that isn’t that hard to do. Did you know that Pope John XXIII (#262) spoke Bulgarian and Turkish?

To be honest I don’t typically look at the ‘Country List’ since it rarely changes. It is invariably the same ‘suspects’ in different rankings: U.S., Canada, U.K., Sri Lanka, India, Australia.

I think it was the flag. I can honestly say that I have not seen it before. I also do not ever remember seeing or hearing that name.
This is how it is pronounced — not exactly ‘re-union‘. Very sexy in a French way.

Slightly, very slightly bummed. I thought I knew MY Indian ocean. I grew up surrounded by the Indian on all sides and I have gone by ship to the Maldives, twice.

Pretty neat. Not sure why they visited the Website — but I am delighted. I have an inkling that it was the Beaujolais Nouveau.

If so I wish you a VERY MERRY Beaujolais Nouveau day,
and I will raise my glass to you on Thursday.

Given that I plan to get a few bottles I get a feeling that I will be raising my glass to a few countries.
