"Soldier Boy" - Shirelles, 1962

Every weekday, I receive an email from a security company based in Houston reporting trouble spots all around the world - something really useful to people like me who might be called upon to make an overseas trip on short notice. At the bottom of each email is a rundown of public holidays and major events for each day of the year.

Last night, after dinner, I was reading through yesterday's email. I thought the items for Honduras and for "Worldwide" were very strange bedfellows for the same date. Here's a screenshot of that portion of the email...

I take it that President Ndadayes wasn't the most popular guy in Burundi then? (And I know that's not what you were referring to!!)

Funny that you two both focused on the "Burundi" entry - which I also thought was oddly funny - while I was looking at the contrast between the other two entries.

Great minds, Heather & John!
