Subject: The Last Time I Saw Paris
Message: The Last Time I Saw Paris
By John T Jones, Ph.D.
I looked at the popular keyword searches and decided to write an article on Paris Hilton. I decided to start with her horoscope for some reason. I found that she was born on 17 February 1981 and came under the sign of the Metal Rooster. I also learned that she and her sister, Nicky, once lived in the Waldorf in New York and that they were going to inherit a zillion dollars each.
I saw Paris Hilton on the Letterman show some time back. He was unable to get a conversation going with her. She sat there like a bump on a log. Maybe she had a bad night the night before. I was surprised that she didn’t fall asleep right then and there.
Anyway: the Hiltons! Nothing there!
I decided to go for the real Paris in France, the real thing, the place where the Da Vinci Code starring Tom Hanks was made.
My grandkids saw the movie the other night. My granddaughter said something like "It was an unbearable diatribe on non-history."
I had warned them not to go.
I tried to read the book. I call it boring scene descriptions with no original story.
I like Tom Hanks. Let’s stay out of Perdition!
The last time I was in Paris was some years ago when I flew in to Charles de Gaulle Airport and waited forever for a scientist to pick me up and drive me to Germany. He showed up just when I had decided to catch a plane to Luxemburg and get to my destination in Metlock, Germany on my own hook.
It was a hot muggy day in Paris. The smog was worse than when I lived in the Los Angeles areas. The traffic was horrific and it took us forever to get out of town. Finally we were out in the countryside, the most beautiful landscape in the whole wide world.
We had dinner at a country restaurant. We waited over an hour for our dinner. I guess they had to catch the rabbit. We listened to a large party of French ladies gab and gab and gab. I distinctly heard several of them say, “Did you know–(Vous avez su–).”
Paris Web Cams
I doubt that I will go back to Paris. If I want to see Paris, I can see it right now through web cams. Right now you can go to http://www.abcparislive.com/ and see the Eiffel Tower at night (unless it happens to be daylight there). It is absolutely gorgeous. The view renews every 10 seconds. It’s mesmerizing!
You can look at Notre Damn at http://tinyurl.com/pvnzd I suggest you do this when it is daylight in Paris. It’s nothing at night.
Web cam sites may tell you that you need to put Java® on your computer to view web cams. They tell you to go to www.java.com to download. It’s free! I suggest you set a System Restore point before you download any such software. That way if something goes wrong you can restore your computer to the way it was before you started messing around. If you don’t know how to do this, forget downloading Java® or any other software. They may also suggest that you install ActiveX®. Same deal.
A simple search will lead you to web cams of about any area. Go to http://www.northwestwebcams.com/ to see my part of the country.
