My girl friend and I were having breakfast and I started to talk to a couple next to us who were in their 70s. He was retired ATT and she from Disney. They were returning to Florida after going to New York for a funeral. He 90 y/o uncle had passed.
He was with the 101st Airborne Division and jumped into Normandy during WWII. Shorty after passing over the beaches their plane was hit by ground fire and the left engine and wing were on fired so everyone, to include the pilots, jumped.
They landed in a small isolated village far from their assigned jump site so they hunkered down in the village. They were just a half of a platoon but they stayed and only a few Germans tried to come through the village as they were not on a major road. The Germans just went around the village.
Early this month her uncle went back to Normandy for the first time and he went to the village and found they had named a street after him and the whole village turned out for him. He passed on two days after returning home.
There is a big difference between a city like Paris, who seem to resent Americans, and a place like Normandy, who seem to revere us!
More on this incredible man :

1. He fought and killed many Germans
2. He was captured 3 times by the Germans, escaped 3 times

The man is what I call a true hero. Brave, daring, but with much humanity.

Not true what you say about Parisians. Well, only partly true. Old-time Parisians scorn anyone not from Paris, and that includes Frenchmen NOT from Paris. So don't feel like a target. Also, I would wager that 95% of Americans who travel to Paris and other places are nice, open, curious and gracious Americans. It's that LRS-Dale-like 5% that spoils it for the 95% and gives Americans a bad name abroad. Of course, being more numerous, they attract more attention though the Japanese and Chinese tourists are giving Americans a run for their money. I like to think of Americans as very open, very welcoming and I can attest to that, having been in the U.S. more often than I can count. And most Parisians, specially those 40 and younger, do appreciate American tourists. Just not that 5%. I know Paris, and what you said is basically untrue, else why are there so many American expatriates living there?

That last sentence is patently false. Most hotel and restaurant employees have a smattering of French. Can you say the same in the U.S. when it comes to languages in the restaurant and hotel business?

Tell me,when was the last time you were in France?

1. Why the question "Why is Asia the largest continent? nitwit" seeing as :

2. Egypt is not a continent and, what's more:

3. Egypt is a COUNTRY, Moe and , yes, there's more:

4. Egypt is located on the AFRICAN continent, MONGO

There is , however a sliver of good news for you, yes, you somehow were able to state that Asia is the largest continent. Birther cheers for today's Mercator.

Please note they site Dr. James Hansen's NASA-GISS!!!!
Global warming of the Earth’s surface has decelerated (Viewpoint)
By Matt Rogers June 20
The recently-released National Climate Assessment (NCA) from the U.S. government offers considerable cause for concern for climate calamity, but downplays the decelerating trend in global surface temperature in the 2000s, which I document here.
Many climate scientists are currently working to figure out what is causing the slowdown, because if it continues, it would call into question the legitimacy of many climate model projections (and inversely offer some good news for our planet)

1986! Sooo, what's you point. Prior to 1986 the French would not allow non-French in their dictionaries. Golf is an example.
Sure most people, even in France, call golf "golf" but in the French dictionaries is was "jeu de balle"! But if you went China, it is golf, Japanese, golf, German, golf, everywhere but France it is GOLF. But prior to 1986, in French dictionaries, it was NOT golf!!!

The Académie française was established in 1635 to act as the official authority on the usages, vocabulary, and grammar of the French language, and to publish an official dictionary of the French language. Its recommendations however carry no legal power and are sometimes disregarded even by governmental authorities. In recent years the Académie has tried to prevent the Anglicisation of the French language.

Oh, just for the record, both sides of my family have roots in Canada and my last name is Frenchy. I consider myself to be a quarter French-Canadian.
I also have English, Irish and Scottish ancestry as well as a smidgen of Native Indian from the Canadian side of my family.
I consider myself to be a two-percenter with tribal connections to the Micmacs of New Brunswick.
http://www.micmac-nsn.gov/
Yep, there use to be about 500 recognized Indian tribes here in the U.S. but the last I heard it was up to about 530. Why the increase? Why once you have tribal status you can have tribal lands and put up tax-free tobacco and gasoline service stations and open casinos!!!
So, in 1991 the Micmacs got tribal status in the U.S. and the Micmacs open a casino and my cousin's wife blew $50,000 at the casino and he divorced her!!!

Seven years ago I was up there in northern Maine and went to church with my cousin and his new wife. On the other side of the church was his ex-wife with their teenage son. Just a little awkward.

Why do you dabble in things French? Come to think of it, why do you dabble in anything?

The Académie française is French. France is the only country that establishes standards for its language. The official dictionary of French is the Littré. It governs the use oft the language and approves deletions AND additions to the French language. Yes, of course, the Académie has tried to stave off challenges to the thing it holds dearest, its language and culture. As did Senator Ichiye Hayakawa in CA, when he saw that Spanish was securing a foothold, had English declared California's only official language. He was Canadian-born by the way. Can you blame the Académie?

Now, you have not been there since almosts 30 years, right? And may I assume you don't read French newspapers and magazines. If you did, you'd know that golf is gold and the "vert" is the green. You'd know that "défi" is no longer "défi" but challenge. You'd know that a knockout in French is ...knockout. Also, that e-mail is "le mail". You should refrain from making comments on stuff you know very little about. The only French thing about you is your name, Nadeau. It's practically the only good thing you have.

Cher monsieur Nadeau,

Mieux vaut vous vouer à l'anglais, c.à.d. l'anglais que vous connaissez qui n'est, en fait, qu'une ombre blafarde de l'Anglais de la Reine.

Oh, my yo0ungest dog (picture) is now three years old. I thought he was near-100% Chihuahua went I got he but seeing as how I got him at a flea market I did not expect him to be.
Well he is a goofy-looking Chihuahua-Gringo mix (or a Flea Market Chihuahua) and he weighs about 13 pounds. I have some Mexican friends and one of them said his "father is Sancho"!
It turns out that "Sancho" is the Mexican equivalent to out "Jody", which is the guy who is chasing your woman when you are out of town. I now tell Hispanics that my dog is "Su padre es Sancho" and they laugh!
