    I am sorry Anglika ,I mistakenly thought the phrase you wrote
    "will reveal all" is the meaning of the idiom .I did not notice that
    your phrase "Nine days' wonder" is a hypertext link to a website provides a wealth of information about the idiom .
    I came to this understanding after reading Bobk's reply to Sanjay .
    Many thanks to you Anglika .I am extremely sorry for the misunderstanding.
    My thanks to Bobk .
