My best,

PL OK!

Pam, do you know when your Huguenot ancestors left for Switzerland? Was it after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes? Or have I misremembered.

Re: [Solo] Henry the Fourth King of France and Navarre by Abbott - icequeen

Did he really say that? He’s a trip. Thanks! Pam Our author says that "hundreds of thousands of people"' thronged around the platform erected in front of Notre Dame for the service.

Thanks, Barbara!

I noticed that, too! Of course, one's nose continues to grow throughout life.

My best,

oh. dear. I did notice that my ears are getting bigger. Would the bigger nose make our voices more resonant?
