Saint of the day: St Catherine of Alexandria was the girl who put the "Catherine" in "Catherine Wheel". When she refused to marry the Roman Emperor Maxentius, he ordered her to be stretched on a spiked wheel. She was saved by angels who shattered the device, sending blades flying into the bystanders in the process. Which was nice.
