Saint of the Day:St Noel Chabanel maybe festive in name, but not so in life. He became a
missionary with the native Americans but had trouble coping with the food,
language and basic living conditions. He survived a massacre of the Hurons
only to be killed by the Iroquois leading survivors to safety.
Nicholas Ralph's Numbers - Game 25: No matter the power to which you raise twenty-five, the result will always end in "25". For example, 25 x 25 x 25 x 25 = 1,500,625
Lucky animal: A robin.
Unlucky food: Christmas pudding. Not for breakfast, surely?
