  1. Good facts again . I can believe that Jamaica has all those churches . Funny, I knew that information on Canada , but as for the the information on Lake Superior , didn’t know that and I’m always preaching to my nephews how awful it is that we Americans, have no idea what is in our country ! Good post as usual .
