Thanks Marty for the link to the article by Jennifer Pinkowski. Wonderful read with the history of Myra well presented. While the article was long and the ads that popped up (with no way to cancel them) was a real pain the info was worth it. Read and noted.

Now finding St. Nicks hometown is something to be happy about. No wonder he went to the North Pole!
