Thank you to those who comment on the blog, send us emails, photos etc. We never thought when we started No.fifty6 we would meet so many wonderful people who have enriched our lives in countless ways. 1st November in France is Toussaint - All Saints Day - the day families remember the dead and civilian cemeteries are filled with pretty flowers. It is a holiday here, so Bonne Fete!
