Hi javi -

> 1) what does 'maiden name' stand for? (on a form)

Maiden - archaic term for 'virgin'; so, a womans' 'maiden name' is her last
name before marriage. Based on the assumption that, if she's not a 'maiden'
she must be married.

I told you it was archaic.

> 2) is it a holiday today out there? (slow evolt lists)

Yeah, it's called 'The Day After Father's Day'

Okay, it's really not. Just trying to ride Canada's 'Boxing Day' coattails.
