Must be sad not having a sense of humour.

You should know, I suppose.

You’re probably the most cynical person on here!

When i was your age i wasn't in the least bit cynical, but as i get older i get more and more cynical, so imagine what it must be like for eddie, afterall he has lived through two world wars 😂

The first time I understood the phrase “takes your breath away” The interior of Norte Dame with Gothic arch on top of Gothic arch soaring upwards .. you really do involantarily inhale, your breath catches  - you look up and there is more and more. Magnificent.Then when you recover and think it’s 800 years old and how they managed to build it. It’s a form of sensory overload. It makes the way we chose to use the word awesome with such glib ease seem completely pathetic. Beautiful building. It will be restored I am certain.

In 1965 I was staying with a French family.

They took me to Paris for a day and we took in all the sights.

Went up the Eiffel tower etc.

We visited the cathedral and went up to the area between the two bell towers.

Whilst there we watched as German soldiers, tanks etc drove into the square.

They were filming ‘Is Paris Burning?’

It wasn’t........then!

Anyone entering?

 

My offering: They should make the new spire from recycled plastic bottles. It'll look incredible in the sun, it's in line with Paris's claim to be at the forefront of tackling climate change and they'll save a good €100m that they can give to the city's homeless.
