The post title (the pic, not so much! :-)) reminds me of the time I was 17 and decided to hitchhike across Canada. I only made it as far as Medicine Hat, Alberta. After spending a mildly educational week there, I decided to thumb my way back to Nova Scotia. I arrived in Quebec City the day before Bastille Day. Being a 17-year-old Anglo, I had no idea that it was...
No, I'm wrong. It was St. Jean Baptiste Day (in June).
Bastille Day is a song by Rush...
Damn, no wonder the French in Quebec want to separate...

Hi Susan, It finally dawned on me to become a follower of your blog. (Jabberwock blog runs on an independent platform that doesn't seem to link) I've never been that smart about this stuff.

My favorite rendition of the Marseillaise is in "Casablanca":

FEMMINISMO: I'm not sure about a couple of them, but I think the letters spell out, "allons citoyens" (Arise, citizens).
