‎“Une bonne fete” to French (and Francophile) people everywhere. To celebrate Bastille Day, a short scene from “Casablanca”. The best scene in the movie. Possibly the best scene in any movie.

Casablanca: Marseillaise

on that note, I think I’ll have the rest of that French moonshine I’ve been saving.  Santé!

That nice, Bastille Day is the French national holiday which is celebrated on 14 July each year. In France, it is formally called La Fete Nationale and commonly le quatorze juillet. It commemorates the 1790 Fete de la Federation, held on the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789; the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern nation, and of the reconciliation of all the French inside the constitutional monarchy which preceded the First Republic, during the French Revolution. Festivities are held on the morning of 14 July, on the Champs-Elysees avenue in Paris in front of the President of the Republic.

Frederick, what’s with these almost-non-sequitur posts on various out-of-date topics?

I’m hoping that’s not the reason. If it is, they will disappear.
