English has the additional wrinkle of French speaking Vikings (Norman or Noramnt) taking over Brittan. Quoting: dschis1000
Funny how a lot of that army was composed of Bretons that left when the Norse and Anglo-Saxons came in.
So anyone that takes English as an additional language has my respect.
Language is a view of history.
You are right brother the MOST important is the TRUTH.
bénédiction au nom de notre Seigneur
Yes, history is interesting in its every aspect, for when we learn about it we seem to see and understand more than we would else do.
Pity that I was such a lazy pupil at school, caring more about butterflies and fishing arctic trouts and chars in near-by brooks and lakes.
After that I cared about visiting old people in the hospital, speaking to them about life and listening to what they had to say. At that time I was seven years old, and they just loved it when I came to see them and speak to them. From them I learned a lot of things about days gone by.
As a lazy pupil I loved playing chess or football. I was exceptionally talented as a football player in moving very fast and in unexpected ways, which made me capable of almost making up a football team quite alone. I could start out from my own part of the football field and go all the way to the opposite part of the field and score goals, to the annoyance of my opponents. But, of course, this did not happen on a very high level, even though people were very much impressed.
Some of my best opponents of those days are close to being crippled while I am in an incredibly good shape, a reason why I think it was at first devised by our great and good Lord that I should be able to work what He had foreseen me to do for the benefit of truth.
These things are given to tell you that I am just an ordinary fellow, not much of plus or minus, but just one of the ordinary sort.
your brother of good wishes and hopes
