Snap DD! I'm just back from the village Memorial service too. Ours was at 11.30 followed by refreshments in the Mairie. Not many names on the list as our village is so small.
So sorry to hear about your dog, Pam. Glad you are getting another, not a replacement but a new friend.
Like Verdun I love Lidl chocolate marzipan bars. They haven't had them in for a bit but I need to go on a diet.
Talking of rude names, the French can't believe that we have Cul de Sacs, they think it's very rude. Cul, according to Google Translate, means ass - not the donkey sort! But when used as a swear word in French it's very rude, a bit like the F word. Sac just means bag so it doesn't really make sense.
