       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 

Greetings Infomaniacs,

Thank you to everyone who sent me their input on personal 
trainers! The consensus is that I should definitely give 
personal training sessions a try. I am going to give the 
trainer a call today and set up a time. I'm feeling a little 
nervous because I know it will be tough, but I am up for the 
challenge! I'll be sure to let you know how it goes...

So the other night some friends and I played trivia at a 
local pub and one of the categories was World War II. I 
realized that my knowledge of one of the biggest events in 
history is really lacking. I only knew the answer to one out 
of 10 questions! I have been brushing up on my World War II 
trivia since then, and I would like to share some of what 
I've learned with my trivia readers...

Having risen to power with the support of Italy and Germany, 
the Franco government of Spain decided to send "volunteers" 
to aid Germany in its attack on the Soviet Union in the 
form of Division Azul (Blue Division). Spain, however, did 
not become directly involved in the war and remained a 
neutral power until the 1980s.


After World War II, Germany was divided into four zones of 
occupation. The American, British and French zones were 
grouped together as West Germany, and the Soviet zone became 
East Germany.


With approximately 27 million total fatalities (both 
military and civilian), the Soviet Union lost the most 
lives during World War II. China was next with approximately
