Thought for the day

"I just wonder what it would be like to be reincarnated in an animal whose species had been so reduced in numbers than it was in danger of extinction. What would be its feelings toward the human species whose population explosion had denied it somewhere to exist.... I must confess that I am tempted to ask for reincarnation as a particularly deadly virus." -- Prince Philip, in his Forward to "If I Were an Animal" - United Kingdom, Robin Clark Ltd., 1986.



Thanks for all the emails and cards!

Paris is too old The history of Paris dates back to 200 BC, when a Parisian tribe established their home beside the Seine River. It became an important trading post for the Romans and eventually became the largest city in all of Europe with a population of 200,000 people during the 1300s. They lost some numbers during the Black Plague and several wars, but today, more than two million people call the City of Lights home.
