And here we are. 1st April. Any April fools?

It's gone 12 noon here, so I think I'm safe to venture out now!

I'm happy not to know people with enough energy to stage April Fool's jokes.

I don't consider this idle chit chat: Tiger Woods won the Masters today. His 5th, and first in fourteen (!) years. Whatever anyone thinks about him personally, that is greatness.

He's like the Serena Williams of golf. Laughing Razz

Ha! You're right, of course. I was considering the greatness-in-longevity angle. But not even a neck surgery and three back surgeries in four years compares to playing during early pregnancy and again shortly afterwards... and having a bunch of old men tell you your fashionable compression garments to prevent more of the blood clots that almost killed you, aren't allowed.

I'm just watching it on the news. That's unbelievable, and who's ever been there and embraced this 800 years old cathedral and its wonderful art knows what's in danger and probably lost...

Carolhathaway - Maybe it isn't as bad as it looks. They said it was under renovation, so maybe things that could have been damaged were already removed or protected. I really hope so. It's such a beautiful place. I hope the damage can be repaired.

Lizzy,

last night I watched a reportabout the ongoing reconstruction which might have caused zhe fire. They had removed the figures on top of the roof due to the construction, and the treasures - the most valuable the crown of thorns Jesus was said to have worn when he was cricified - wasn't reached by the fire. Other treasures were saved, so hopefully nothing is past recovery.

President Macron said the cathedral will be rebuilt, and the Pinault family (Salma Hayek's husband) announced the donation of 100 million Euros for it.

Yes there are a lot of paintings and valuable items
that haven't been damaged.
I've been there and that large round window
is just MAGNIFICENT. 
I was so sad to see how quickly the spire burned
and collapsed.

(I climbed to the top of one of the large towers at the front......
I then discovered I suffered from Vertigo. LOL)

I got shivers when I saw the spire collapse.  Although I know it's a totally different thing, but I had a brief flashback to the twin towers collapsing.  A feeling that somehow something in life has changed forever.

Even though it seems they had removed a lot of the art, it's the building itself that's also a work of art and much of it has gone.  The good news is that with so many photos and probably even 3d imagery that they should be able to recreate it pretty much as it was, but gosh, it's going to take time and craftsmanship.

I think, if they asked, the money would come pouring in from all over the world. I just wonder if there are enough well-trained craftsmen to do the repair work. I hope so.

Well, among others now, Arnault (LVMF luxury goods) has donated a couple of million. Thank goodness they didn't take Trump's advice!

Me too.... I felt exactly the same....

I stayed in Paris a good bit at one stage in my life ... and a (free loading) friend foisted herself on me, when I had a real bad flu... being the good host I took her on the usual quick tour... as we walked over the bridge I pointed to my right and said “lovely view of Notre-Dame” I looked behind me to see she was looking left and backwards Shocked ....later I suggested it was a good time for evensong/vespers, if she wanted to go.... No she said .... I kinda wasn’t surprised... Vespers in a florists....

We are always left breathless/shocked when someone or something we always thought would be there disappears in a heartbeat.....it’s what keeps us human...

Very timely find, It's me. I wonder who he's supporting this time around. There are so many Democrats running (18 at last count) with Bernie in second place after Joe Biden. Who the Democratic candidate will be is anyone's guess at this point and fundraising is still a huge problem for anyone running. I wonder if he'll volunteer to raise money for anyone like he did for Obama and Hillary.
