Use an UPDATE statement on the tblCountry table to set the CountryName column to include the words (My Country) next to the country you call home:

When you run this query, nothing should change:
When excluding your country remember to use wild cards to account for the changed name!
Change the condition to test whether 1 + 1 = 3 (it doesn't), and rerun it. Check that the extra text has been added:
If you have nothing better to do, change Holiday to Visited for countries you've been to.
Finally, as a bit of housekeeping please reset the country names by running this query:
-- reset country names
SET CountryName = REPLACE(CountryName,
' (Holiday Destination)','')
-- check this worked
SELECT * FROM tblCountry

Optionally save this as Stake your claims.sql, and then close it down.
