My wife, Alison (aka La Potiche), has been keeping a blog on our stay in France. Occasionally, I contribute, although I've been too busy fighting (and conquering! rarh!) deadlines for the last few months to do much else but fight and conquer, etc.. Alison's recently written about our visit to Bayeux and and Caen and touches on the Middle Ages and memory in ways I think will resonate for some of our readers. I'd be happy if you read it.
