    In fact: It is now 230 years (since the storm on the Bastille which counts as start of the French revolution).

    French is as much a foreign language to me as is English.

    It concerns the French...so?

    Happy Bastille Day!
    I have my cockade and will wear it proudly today.
    The French are survivors.
    Their revolution was a bloody affair, but it in the end, succeeded. All that, in spite of Robespierre, Barras, Marat and eventually... Bonaparte.

    Vive la France!

    Russ said back years ago this was considered to be English speaking forum.

    Memory going on you ponderable, or were you on the site?
