Well, the Vatican is autonomous, but has complex law relationship with Italia, and I confess ignorance.
We're looking for a big country.

5. ah, "I see, said the blind man". The name's Bond: James Bond.

Sean Connery and Roger Moore begat Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, with George Lazenbee and ..geez, I can't think of the name of that better-known British actor that did a version of Casino Royale, I believe.. anyway, with a couple of other "one-shot"( :)) Bonds along the way.

It was David Niven in the 50s. Then Timothy Dalton in the past 10 years or so.

1..Kol Nidre...and also at funeral services.

2..South America

3..Jolie=beautiful(like many consider Angelina).

4..No need for the "homing" kind, as they wouldn't be returning, but geordi's right about pigeons.

5..Pinot has a miraculous vision, citing the Bond characters.

6..Welcome, Kelly, it is indeed the Asian country with the biggest Catholic population. Geordi's with you.

7..Knights & geordi seem to know he plays hockey, and it is so that Mario Lemieux has more. I messed up the hint. Jagr plays for the Devils.

8..20% will do nicely. Credit to VAUC.

9..Emiril (I buy his jarred sauce), we have The Knights Choir for that.

10..Rbny & zorro give us Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (a little night music),

11..The Graf Zeppelin works just fine, so write geordi & Knights.

12..Crown & I watch the same tv nature shows--New Zealand.

13..Well, I failed to elicit from you that "blonde"=Sister Goldenhair. Shame on one of us.
