*sigh* I envy anyone who goes to France. By the way, I love your blog. I love the history and Marie Antoinette. I think I have an unnatural obsession with it all. Anywho, kudos on the blog! (sorry to sound so "rushed")

I don't know, Richard; it would have a lot to do with the landscape.

Thanks for playing. :0 I can relate to your bad habits. I've four books on the nightstand all half read, and clutter is a real problem here. I think I've exhasuted myself cleaning out the house of clutter these past few months.
