Saint of the Day: - Roman St.Melania the younger was married against her will at the age of thirteen but luckily her husband has a similar holy outlook. When their children died young the couple took a vow of celibacy, sold their land and freed their slaves. They devoted their time to helping the poor and building monasteries, but continued to be happily married.
Nicholas Ralph's Word of the Day: "Brannigan", the intake of large quantities of alcohol, continuously over many hours. Like a post-match piss-up.
