I used to think Valentine's day was a stupid invention of Hallmark and florists, this year I appreciate the invention ;).

What's making me smile at the moment is Miles learning how to say "Truck".. He replaces the "Tr" part with "F" . It's his favourite word right now!!

We sold our condo! It was on the market for just over a week and a young girl came in, looked around and decided this is were she wants to live. I'm ecstatic and relieved... although now we've got to find a new place by May...

Two Ouch's and Harold Macmillan's quote about forgiveness.

I must say, France is the country that--for me anyway--most honours its war dead. There are plaques and commemorative reminders throughout Paris, the tomb of the unknown soldier is always guarded, and Normandy proudly flies the flags (and nice, clean ones, at that) of all the countries that came to its aid on D-Day. You don't see anywhere near the commemoration here in Canada, which had conscription and sent a whole lot of soldiers into WWII. We've collectively started to forget. France always remembers.

De Gaulle isn't too fondly remembered by all, that's true--but I always find it terribly unfair to paint France with such a selfish brush. I attended a November 11th (Canadian Remembrance Day) ceremony on Juno beach a few years back, and a nice elderly lady--upon hearing my grandfather cam up at St. Aubin some 61 years earlier--drove me all over to see where he'd probably been on D-Day. She was grateful, and here I was just a visitor. I dare anyone to say France doesn't acknowledge all they help they received.

I learnt how to do a travel album on the net and transfer photos from the computer to my travel albums.

Now all I have to do is learn how to transfer photos from the camera to the computer. (The boys do that for me)
