On the history aspect it is at times like this when I get reminded of European (and other ) history.

In the current situation we have history dating back several hundred years.
Yet here is Aus we dont have any building more than just over 200 years old. Of course we have Aboriginal history going back tens of thousands of yeears but
I remember explaining to people when showed the oldest buildings in Aus and NZ that my house at the time in England was a cheap workers cottage almost 250 years old. And I only bought that because I could not afford a 'proper' old house, or for that matter a new build!

Times like this it is a stark realisation of the history in Europe I never appreciated until I got here.

I remember the time-span of history being demonstrated in the archaeological programmes such as Time Team. When digging in the UK, they typically start with heavy machinery to dig the first few feet, before going delicate.
When they are in US or Australia, they start delicate straight away because the history is so near the surface, not buried under 1,000s of years....

On the Beeb, an architect has predicted that modern techniques will be used to rebuild in the ancient tradition, and is fairly sure that the basic structure is still sound, but it will take 10 years to fully restore.

The Philosophy seems to work for historic racing

The church are wealthier than most states, they can afford renovations. How do you think they managed to build such monsters in the first place.

Exactly. I wasn’t even thinking of any religious significance when looking at the burning building!

Finding the right wood for the roof structure will be a challenge, and the skills to replicate what was there.....

By coincidence the man working on the roof of Michele's house at this very moment is fully qualified to work on historic buildings, so he might well be busy for the next few years! Good job she got in first.

A large sum of money has I gather already been pledged by the government towards repairs.

I gather the President has asked other members of the EU to put a hand in their pockets as well......

From what I heard and read, the oak beams were from 900 year old trees located in a specific forest? If correct, that sort of detail will be hard to replicate.

I was reading elsewhere an article by a Frenchman who attended an event at Versailles some years ago regarding disaster recovery and long term planning. They were told that trees are 'ready & waiting' there if they were ever needed for such a situation at Notre Dame. Specifically planted / grown for such a disaster scenario - long term planning indeed.

Very forward thinking if correct.

Oh, an official opening.


I thought it had been operating as such for quite a while - ever since Ginetta took over Bookatrack.



I'll contact my Ginetta oqing pal to see if he has had an invitation.

Could be, ‘official’ openings aren’t always an actual opening! Get yourself there in case there’s freebies.......
