New look, new things in the EU

Everything's Corner changed its look (I'll certainly miss the old blue background... and you?). I hope you like this new image, I'll be testing it for a while to see if it works or not. If it doesn't, there's always a chance to go back to the old scheme.
But not only the look of this blog has changed to begin the new year. Some important things have happened in the world today, which will make a difference in the present and future for millions of people.
  • Romania and Bulgaria, starting from today, became members of the European Union. With these additions, the total number of members of this community raises to 27. Perhaps it'll be necessary to do some modifications to the EU Flag, as the stars on it are actually only representing 12 of its 27 members... that makes less than 50% of representation. However, my congratulations to Romania and Bulgaria. I'm sure that this change will open new horizons of development for both countries.
  • The other relevant thing, also concerning the EU, is that Slovenia adopted today the Euro as its official currency. Such country becomes that way the 13th nation to adopt such currency to its everyday activities; this move makes the Slovenian tolar obsolete.
This way, it seems that this new year begins as a very challenging one (but potentially rewarding) for several millions of people living in Eastern Europe, and why not, also for the big contributors of the EU.

Cheers! To share any comments (regarding the Euro topic, the blog's new image, or whatever you wish to express), please post a message!
