May 8: Victory in Europe Day (V-E Day or VE Day) was on May 8, 1945, the date when the World War II Allies formally accepted the unconditional surrender of the armed forces of Nazi Germany and the end of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. (from Wikipedia)
65 years later. We’ve come a long way.
(TGIM8!) In fact, I hadn’t intended to send out a newsletter this morning … but something unexpected happened … as usual … in additon to this experimental format …
When I was on my way to get a fresh baguette for my daughter’s breakfast, I ran into my neighbor A. who was visibly enjoying the cool morning air as he bicycled just past the front door of my building. He was on his way to buy some cheese. At his favorite cheese shop.
This sparked an idea. Suppose I created a new category on the Paris Savannah Connection called “Favorites” ? Whoever wanted to share their “favorite” places with others connecting to the Paris Savannah Connection could do so …
So in the spirit of the Buzz/Yahoo/Google//Texto world we live in, I wrote it as it is pronounced: Favoritz, rhyming with Ritz.
If you’ve got a Favoritz in Paris or in Savannah to share … let me know and if it’s postable … up it will go!
I hope this May weekend is special for you, too.
