Bastille Day


In honor of the storming of the Bastille in 1789, let's celebrate the ordinary folk...those who took the power from the monarchy. Let's pop open a bottle of wine (French or not), listen to a little French cafe' music, and salute the common man. Vive la France, vive liberty!

Bastille day was a horrific time of murder and mayhem to destroy.
In the Scam of Bastille day only 3 were liberated , one of whom was the Marquis de Sade!
