Zut alors - I forgot ze marshmellows!

Another historic blog entry number - 1812 - the year Napoleon invaded Russia and pretty much destroyed le Grand Armee in the process. An excellent book on the subject is Moscow 1812 by Adam Zamoyski. Papa Smurf gives it two thumbs up.

Thanks for the heads up, Papa Smurf. I love the tenacious march of sadness that is Russian history.

True. It's like they have cornered the market in grey skies.
