I can recommend La Coupole
Which is near St. Omer - ostensibly a combined V2 factory and launch site which sort of conforms to the volcano theme (massive concrete dome to protect it) which is now a great museum.
It never saw operation - constant bombing and the Allied advance after D-Day put paid to that.
One nugget I got from the museum is that Hittler efffectively cut off funding to Von Braun and Co. for over 18 months while he concentrated on the Eastern front - which rather makes you think.
Other sites near La Coupole too - Eperleques (chuffing great factory bunker) and Mimoeques - which was the installation for the stillborn V3 rockets - but 617 Squadron got there first.
Is that a lightsaber in your pocket...
...well you know the rest.
Sorry. So very sorry.
Re: Too much to hope for
Amazon already offer evening delivery - as long as you live in central Paris and are prepared to pay handsomely for it.
Even so, they still seem to be able to deliver 5 minutes before the cut-off. How DO they do that?
Yes, George was wooden (and was a sacrificial lamb after Schorn)
Fabulous plot (and soundtrack) got my vote - it is after all for best FILM not best Bond/car/girl/WHY - OHMSS is more than the sum of its parts.
Real people my derriére
Cats, dogs, bears - the're all on Facebook.
More entaining than humans too...
Academic for me..
but a 4 way split screen on an iPad?
Just too much information in one place - at least it's unlikely Sky will be able to litter it with their frightfully garish graphics during the race as that part of the feed is provided from the other Evil Empire (TM)
Call me a conspiracy theorist but...
...was intruiged to be passing FNAC at St Lazare in Paris about 7.00pm last night and the windows were blanked out by massive posters (2x3 metres?) with a larger than life portrait of Steve along with a personal statement from the boss of FNAC.
I'm sure these things can be done in double quick time - but it does make you wonder...
Benefit commercially form the poor man's untimely end? Shurely shome mishtake.
What does Bernie think he's playing at? He may want to get into bed with the Murdochs but this is sucidal for the sponsers.
Or COULD be if enough people kick up a stink to them - and FOTA
FOTA already asking questions (but could be a smokescreen) and Brundle has tweeted he is "not inpressed". Does this mean he won't jump ship?
Let's see how committed he is, shall we?
Erm, no actually
Apparently the Visa "deal" extends to retail outlets and cash machines in Olympic sites - but never fear! Visa will gladly provide you with a pre-paid card if you haven't seen the light!
Which is nice of them...
I'll be the one outside the Olympic park wearing a Mastercard T Shirt
Points are everything
I just did a back to back in Word too - CG at 12 pt is about 1 pt larger than Arial - reduce it to 11 and it's similar - how many users will adjust the font size?
So if you really must print something, do it in 6pt and buy a magnifying glass...
Any chance of a version optimised for "Safety" camera vans?
All very well but...
...there are an increasing number of cars that can beat 67 mpg without all this Hybrid malarky (the Polo Bluemotion for one) and can it close on emissions whilst being cheaper.
Ye gods, even that leadfoot Clarkson can get 50mpg out of a Jaguar XJ - and that was with the older, less efficient engine.
Their time may come but at the moment, they are only good for people who want to show off their apparent green credentials
Worst offender is the Lexus Rx Hybrid - just buy something slightly smaller (and lighter) than a small country and you'll be set...
6/10 see me after class.
Never mind the drones
Bring on the Vulcan!
Paris, because she likes her V Bombers big and noisy..
There's this brilliant invention..
..called a map.
