Notre Dame burns

Apr 15, 2019 | 17:09 1 I am glad we went there on our visits to Paris. Westminster Abbey doesn’t hold a candle to that monstrous beauty. Reply With Quote
Apr 15, 2019 | 17:31 2 I waited for SF3 or Farma to say it but taking too long, “Climate Change to blame for fire in iconic cathedral”. Reply With Quote
Apr 15, 2019 | 17:36 3 I heard it started when the priest knocked a candle off the altar and the altar boys were afraid to bend over to pick it up. Reply With Quote

    If you had ever seen Notre Dame, you would never have posted the above!

    Why me? I seldom wade into the cesspool of the climate change debate.

    Too bad they lost that cathedral though...although I am not "religious".

    Religions are man-made so expect lots of defects and imperfections...."human nature". Reply With Quote

    ‘Briefly catches fire’ - good grief, if you ever stood beneath those massive carved timbres, billions of pieces of stained glass, glued together with impeccable precision, artifacts dating back to the 1200’s displayed in side knooks all around, you would know that even ‘brief’ fires must tear at the very heart of every French Catholic. Funny read - a post where the author’s pastor said it was a sign from above meant to scare the bejeebees out of the priests. ‘No body hurt’ - see words are just nothing - air - fluff.

    Its a building ferchrisake. I'm sure it was a very nice building but if its so important the Pope can afford to rebuild it. Get over yourself. Reply With Quote

  • SASKFARMER's Avatar Apr 16, 2019 | 06:46 12 No Bob its not just a building. It's a 1200-year-old building, its history.

    F#$K your one stupid fool.

    This is why people need to learn about history in school. Reply With Quote
    Apr 16, 2019 | 07:49 13 It went up like dried out Christmas tree....wonder why they didn't install fire protection years ago.... Reply With Quote

    Apr 16, 2019 | 08:13 15 The fire protection would have cost less than the rebuild.....because the rebuild will include fire protection and this fire will become a footnote in history....

    Apr 16, 2019 | 08:33 17 858 years ago they started building and was finished almost 200 years later, it’s had numerous renovations and additional building over the years, it’s burnt before but not this bad. Reply With Quote

    Apr 16, 2019 | 09:41 19 Stayed in Paris when I had just turned 21 , directly across from Norte Dame, amazing architecture and amazing how things were built 800 years ago.

    Very sad . Apparently there aren’t trees tall enough in France anymore to replace the wooden beams that burnt Reply With Quote
    Apr 16, 2019 | 09:48 20 I am tremendously sorry I never got to see Notre Dame. My wife has been there, it is a great and sad loss. Reply With Quote

    Apr 16, 2019 | 10:15 22 SF3, if you love history, goto France, rent a car, load gps at home and order atlas on amazon before you go. The countryside has elevators, orchards, pastures, small cities all have churches from 12 & 13 hundreds with the floor treads worn down 3 inches from constant foot traffic. In a church near Lyon from back then, the walls are covered with crosses with each family name and date - what a great idea. Wander around France down to the south of the country. I think France is less than 1000 miles north to south. Toll booths charging up to 19 Euro on the inter states so it costs a few euro to get from Paris to Monte Carlo and Italy, but really worth it. Around Dublin too, really fun coutryside. Kinda makes our open prairies quite mundane, but oh well. Reply With Quote

    And after doing that and seeing the sights and scenes, history and architecture, You'll never have any desire to go sit on a beach in a country with none of the above again.
    When we made a round-trip of France , Tried to spend as many miles on back roads as we did tollroads , It might take three times longer but the scenery is well worth it.

    Regrettably, we didn't actually go in Notre Dame. Saw it from the outside and The lineup to get in, and went elsewhere. Reply With Quote

    Apr 16, 2019 | 12:39 26 Look how rabidly the French protect their history. People risked life to save precious art works.

    Here in Canada we take ours down when people complain, We rename our landmarks. Write out people from our history. Take down statues of past PMs. Reply With Quote

    Smash and burn 1000 usable elevators, certainly far from 850 years old! Reply With Quote
    Apr 16, 2019 | 16:04 28 A crying shame, the elevator system that went down. The railways and SWP were the big push. I was on the local board where our local rep would come with his chest puffed out to tell us what head office wanted. It didn’t matter that our elevator was just rebuilt. Where are they now? Pushing up daisies and we are left with the wrecked roads, semi traffic, waste of fuel. Then they tell to conserve - yep! Reply With Quote
