Who Was Catherine the Great? - Catherine the Great True Story

A great wind is blowing, and that gives you either imagination or a headache.”   —   Catherine The Great

(It looks like our Cryptoquote friends and our Jumble friends were on the same page today!  Well, okay, they’re usually – literally – on the same page anyway.  But they’re both about big winds!  Catherine was a tough cookie, and she ruled Russia for 34 years.  She admired Peter The Great, and she did a lot to modernize Russia.  She was also a big patron – matron? – of the Arts.  And, yes, she did have a lot of lovers.  Good for her!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
