It's time to announce the winner of the Tory Widow giveaway, which turned out to be a most excellent contest. I'd like to thank Christine for offering the opportunity and for thinking up such a great question, as it resulted in responses that were not only fascinating to read but educational as well. We had seven countries represented: the US, Australia, Canada, Finland, the Philippines, India, and Singapore, the country named after a lion. I spent some time cruising the web for country name etymologies and hope I'm right on this last one!
And the winner is... Kelly, from 101 Journeys in 1001 Days, who wrote about the pillars of the original Capitol building in Washington, DC. I've sent an email your way, and I hope you enjoy the book and goodies.
Thanks to everyone for your contributions and participation!
