I never knew it but today is St. Helena Day.

A day to celebrate the discovery in 1502 of the “second oldest remaining British Overseas Territory next to Bermuda.”

Where is St. Helena, you ask? A tropical island about 4,000 kms east of Rio de Janeiro in the south Atlantic ocean. 16 x 8 kms or 10 by 5 miles, population 4,500, it was named to
honour Saint Helena of Constantinople.

saintly – a descriptive of a person who has received an official honour from the Christian, especially the Roman Catholic Church for having lived in a good and holy way. The names of saints are sometimes used to name places and buildings.

Cheers to a fine day of wisdom, understanding, knowledge & fortitude that smiles all life’s goodness sings—YES!!!
