    Well, that was supposed to be the moving scene from Casablanca where Ricks clientèle gets up and sings the Marseillaise....

    sorry, Marseillaise. I'm having trouble with this. How do you correct an error once it's been posted?

    I have to tell you... Duckie thought I was nuts when I burst into the French national anthem this morning and announced "Happy Bastile Day". It's good to know I'm not the only one to celebrate...

    It's bittersweet for me (mi-amer? as in bittersweet chocolate), my father died on Bastille day.

    Now, when I posted at first, the youtube did not come through and "Marseillaise" was all messed up. What miracle has changed all of this, I am absolutely baffled Does this site have MICE?

    Anyway, I hope that today, of all days, every one was able to enjoy the pleasures of the palate. Nothing more French than a good meal under the stars.

    Actually, I had a glass of twenty-year port; it's the best wine we had in the house though rather sweet for my taste.

    Port not French but where (no, WHENCE did it originate?). Obviously, Portugal, but not everyone has old port hanging around. You have a secret, I love secrets!

    OOOHH! I see you hail from NY state. That might explain things....Do you have a wine cellar?

    I do too, TM. I am tired of the anti-wine attitude that I have encountered. The Ancients used to communicate around a communal table, good food, dubious Greek wine. So many people seem so afraid of any kind of alcohol. When I was a child we had our grandmothers watching our behavior and breathing down our necks when we were overdoing it. Nothing like an authority figure to keep us from over doing it.

    This brought back good memories. My Nana, who passed in 1993, took high school French (Class of 1920!) and used to sing The Marsellaise to us on car trips. My brother and I thought it was really cool.
