3. I have always loved Edith Piaf.

It was a special moment when I visited Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris and got to see her grave.

For those of you who enjoy visiting cemeteries, seeing the monuments and reading the epitaphs, if you go to Paris, take the time, at least a day, to see Pere Lachaise. It is the most beautiful cemetery I have ever been in.

6. I worked for a while near Pere Lachaise and would visit frequently. However the homage to the dead

did not balance the pain and suffering that many of those interred endured during their lives.

It's almost like: See, you have a great resting place. Now stop complaining.

And, unless I'm mistaken plots in this cemetery are strictly allocated according to "rank".

For me, a natural burial in some unmarked spot about 1 meter down where the real life force of this planet can use my meager contributions.

7. Merci beaucoup. Tres bien. The Little Sparrow.

She must have been both adorable and sad when she sang on the streets as a child. She was a tiny person, so as a child, she must have been itsy bitsy with that big voice.

A wonderful story. A wonderful song. A wonderful movie, too. La Vie en Rose.

9. You know, it's kind of odd that I got a post telling me to remove a video...

I got a post a while back, telling me to remove a video and move it to "music," unless I could relate it to politics. Why do you think I got that post, since people regularly post videos in the video forum that are not political?
