(Emerging from the catacombs of lurkdom...)

With 90 out of 138 votes and after the second round of voting, His Eminence Metropolitan Neofit of Rousse has been chosen as the new Patriarch of All-Bulgaria!

AXIOS! Many Years!

Eis polla aeti, Despota!

And greetings to you, my old friend. I see by your profile that your studies have concluded and ended in success smile - prayers that all is well with you.

Many years,

Anton,

Watched it this morning from your link, in what I gather was either a live stream or news broadcast of it, since it doesn't appear any longer (news broadcast at the link presently, from what I can tell). It was very impressive and reverent. Do you know if it is posted anywhere on-line, so others might see it?

Baked the cake at Christmas, my brother (which has become an annual tradition with me - and the only thing I bake all year). It's still as good as back when you gifted me the recipe biggrin

Many years,

Neil
