I have been working hard on my U3A talk on the Franco-Prussian War. Finally I have a good idea of what I want to say and found some good pictures and maps, so I have a week (tomorrow) to get the balance right and to trim it to 90 minutes , then write some PowerPoint slides.
I came across this wonderful image of how the French saw the war's end (must find the artist's name)
We are having the afternoon off - so now its lunch in York then cinema. Life's good.
