    I thought I heard something last night. No sirens etc. Helicopters hovering overhead last night and this morning. One source says a guy got P.O.’d at his wife. He went into the garage, opened the valve on a propane tank and lit a match. This was less than half a mile from our house.

      This is a moving story.
      It used to be that French schoolchildren were driven to Caen to visit the Memorial and the beaches as part of their education in History. I am not sure it happens anymore, considering the political orientation of the teachers nowadays. Plus : Patriotism has become a dirty word. More and more, our flag is replaced by the EU flag or worse and our politicians love it. Just check a picture of the Bastille after the socialist president was elected in 2012 …… no french flag, only “foreign”, very foreign flags …
