So 8.6% (of the 219) current cardinals were born in September.

September is NOT the month with the most birthdays. Next month, October, for a start, has more.

Only two instances of shared birthdates, Sept. 5 & Sept. 21 — albeit with three sharing the later.

No cardinals that share a birthday with me!

Youngest, this month, Reinhard Marx, will turn 62. The oldest, Paulo Evaristo Arns will turn 94.

Happy Birthday, Paolo Sardi.

Of the current College of 219 cardinals 95 share a birthday with another cardinal.

There are, however, none who share the exact same birthday. There are 3 incidents of cardinals who are one year apart. The largest gap is that of 30 years between Castrillón Hoyos born on July 4, 1929 and Sturla Berhouet born July 4, 1959.

There are 43 shared birthdates — starting January 1.  Meisner was born on Christmas Day BUT he does not share that with any other cardinal. There are 4 cardinals who were born on March 18 — from 1924 to 1935. There are 7 instances of three cardinals sharing the same birthdate — one of them being July 4, U.S. Independence Day, though none of those 3 cardinals is American.

February, the shortest month, has 7 shared birthdates — the most for any month. May only has one.

So here is a list for your enjoyment and edification.

It is the definitive insider’s guide to Pope Francis’ visit to Washington D.C, New York City and Philadelphia in September 2015. Check it out. Amazon has the descriptive blurbs so I won’t regurgitate them here.

Did a lot of research for this book and that, as with some of my other pope books (e.g., Popes and the Tale of their Names), is what sets it apart. Lots of information that is not common knowledge. I enjoy the research! This book, like so many of my others, was basically an excuse for me to do the research. I don’t see a point of doing research if you don’t share it with folks.

This, in the end, proved to be a long book. 170 pages, 7″ x 10″, in paperback form and 213 pages as an eBook.

I am old fashioned when it comes to books. As such I like to see my book in print even though I fully appreciate that the market for printed books is in decline. Thanks to Amazon’s “CreateSpace” (and others of its ilk) getting a title for ‘Print on Demand‘ costs nothing — if you do all the work (which I do). So as soon as I had the Kindle version published (along with three updates) I started working on the print version.

I wrote both the “Pope John: 101 Facts & Trivia” and “Popes: 101 Facts & Trivia” in print format rather than the free-flow, ‘no-formatting-to-speak-of’ form required by Kindle eBooks. I like tightly formatted books and as such writing in print format is more satisfying to me. And that is what counts. So once the book is finished I have to create the Kindle version by copying and pasting my formatted version into a freeflow document. To me that is easier than the other way around — i.e., adding formatting to the freeflow version.

So after the Kindle I am 80% there in terms of the print version BAR the index! I now have a semi-automated method for creating my ‘Partial Index’. I use the very powerful search capability of Adobe Acrobat to find all the occurrences of the terms I want to include in the ‘Partial Index’. But it still takes me about two days to get the index done.

I had the Kindle version up on Amazon on Wednesday night, September 17, 2014 — ahead of the Scottish referendum. Had the print version ready Saturday night — ahead of us going to the Highland Games, in Loon, on Sunday. Given that this is the 10th book I have published through CreateSpace I have learned that it just does not pay to submit your book for THEIR ‘Print Review’ over a weekend! Yes, they work 24 x 7 BUT invariably they have their “C-team” working over the weekends — and I also suspect that they get a lot of books submitted for review over weekends. I have found that the best time for getting a “CLEAN” print-review is Monday nights. So I submitted the book Monday afternoon. Yesterday, Tuesday morning, I had the Green Light. And bingo.

It was on Amazon within an hour of me approving the digital proof. That is quick. Then late last night I send a quick “please/thank you” note to Kindle asking them to link the titles — because I don’t have the patience to wait for the 72-hours or so it takes for this to happen if it is done automatically. Kindle is good to me. They linked it … by this morning … and send me a ‘smile’ e-mail saying ‘done’.

So that is where we are. The Kindle book has already sold a few copies. That is nice. I am happy. Now for the next book — though I am TRYING to FORCE myself into giving myself a couple of days break before starting. It is hard. I have to write. It is an addiction.
