That's very interesting ... in 1919, Pétain was of a "national hero" status in France, as I understand it ... with the Vichy Government of WWII and afterwards, history was (and historians were) not so kind to him ... still a topic of "debate" at times IMHO ... J
Oooo! Oooo! WWII history buff here!!!

Are we talking about the soup or the boy band?
Well, I was talking about the soup, but you know how these things morph.

Either way works - I just wanted to be sure.

PS: After two days with a nasty stomach bug, this turn of subject... has no effect on me. I think I've lost all interest in food, good or bad.

What's it the kids say these days? "Pictures, or it didn't happen"?

Bad idea...

The difference between the two responses to what can easily be the same subject is related to
  1. Who is in the picture
  2. Who is viewing the picture
Anything Dad did / does is subject to POIDH. Any Proof of Claim Dad offers is TMI.

Dad asking for same is Creeper. Dad seeing pictures is WAY TMI.

Kyle: I thought you said the wonder of Mother Nature was a beautiful thing.
Stan: Yeah, when does Mother Nature go from beautiful to ugly?
Chef: Usually about 9:30 in the morning, children.

I won the Holland Hall "History Award" in 11th grade and got Carl Sandburg's "Abraham Lincoln" book as a prize (both "The Prairie Years" and "The War Years") ... one of the few books that I bothered to bring to France with me from the States. J

And ... what about "Andouillette" ?! ... J

"Serving: Andouillettes can be served either hot or cold, with the former much more common. As with all lower intestine sausages, andouillettes are to some extent an acquired taste. Their smell may offend people unaccustomed to the dish. The texture is somewhat rougher than sausages, as the content is coarsely cut. ..." {Emphasis added}

Maybe the kindness of the historians for him declined when seeing, first the count back on casualties at places like Verdun (420,000 French dead defending against 380,000 German dead over 9 months in 1916 for a total exchange of about 3-4 sq miles of land). The Germans knew what would happen - Verdun was the site where Charlemagne divided his empire among his three sons - so the French would never relinquish it. And of course his WWII choices were something which in the hindsight of the outcome diminished him very much.

And to mention Charlemagne. In 1992 I went into the Air New Zealand office in Auckland, for some normal airline business. Something about my name, I forget now what, prompted the man behind the counter, middle aged, to say something which I recognised as an allusion to some literature, so I replied "Charlemagne, that mighty man of mould" (from Dorothy Sayers' translation of The Song of Roland) which really made his day because that was, he said, his favourite poem.

In the hills here we have a series of towns on the main highway towards Melbourne, Vimy Ridge, Verdun, and then German Town Hill followed by Hahndorf, named after the German captain of the ship that brought a group of German religious refugees in the 1840's.
