  1. I don't know precisely why but I am reminded of "The Onion"'s great headline some years back...."Jacques Derrida 'dies'."

    1. RIP.

      Wife's grandfather, from Lyon, FR, died at 99.9 years of age, and never had a meal (breakfast included), where he did not have a glass of wine. He also celebrated each evening with a glass of whiskey, and smoked cigars daily, until the day of his death.

      With the exception of the whiskey, I am trying to follow in his footsteps - need to add a Champagne to each breakfast though.
