“May is a month of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.”
From the Wikipedia entry about May.
And a song …

Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s Teaser.

Decisions about scores are final.

Thank you for coming: have a good day.

*        Swimming and drowning people, Olga?   I think most saints are like most gods: they get believers where they find them!
        I didn’t hear about the gig … but Obama and company’s restaurant visit made the news.   Apparently, the former president is friendly with a Spanish American celebrity chef, who’d suggested the place.   And, apparently, it’s Springsteen … complete with the E Street band.   It’s probably worth going, just for them, they have a very good reputation.
        Towels!   I knew there was something … !

        Hello, Mum!

        It possibly makes more sense if you read it, Debbi.   Finding reprinted versions of the story is well nigh impossible.
        Unless it’s Bill Nighy impossible§ … 

§        I’m here all week, Debbi.

^        Cue the music …

Q1) 31

Q2) a meteor shower

Q3) The fifth

Q4) Mary

Q5) Greece
Yes, I think the restaurant was recommended. I was checking the menu, and it doesn't look bad. Also, not the most expensive (although not cheap, by any stretch of the imagination). It seems his wife stayed another day and they went to visit another restaurant (and the Picasso Museum, well-worth a visit). That restaurant's owner is Jordi Cruz, a chef with 3 Michelin stars, and who is one of the judges in the Spanish version of Masterchef. I walk past that restaurant every time I go to Jordi's for his lessons, so I should go by tomorrow morning. That one is quite expensive. (Famously, it seems that Bill Gates went by, and the owner decided to close the restaurant for him, and he just had a Diet Coke and left... Not that Gates had asked him to close the restaurant for him, though, so I guess...)
I hope the day is not too boring, but I know you always finds ways to keep yourself busy. Bank holiday here as well, but we went out to the city centre to visit the Cathedral, with my mother, and, believe me, we are not alone here...
