French Ban Fireworks at Euro Disney

(AP), Paris , March 5, 2003

The French Government announced today that it is imposing a ban on the use of fireworks at Euro Disney. The decision comes the day after a nightly fireworks display at the park, located just 30 miles outside of Paris , caused the soldiers at a nearby French Army garrison to surrender to a group of Czech tourists.

I have been having short term memory loss lately.. I think you are safe... for now.. watch your back though in about 6months time. :lol:

Actually it fitted in to replying to me as I HAD just made a comment about cuddling the neighbours baby.... and yes I totally agree.. the smell of babies is my favourite scent on earth. :)

Though the parents tend to get alarmed when you start hyperventilating while you are nursing their child.

I told my 25 yr old about the baby today and said how clucky I have been. The 25 yr old who has made it totally clear she is not reproducing ever. And I'm fine with that. But as she said.. Mum you ALWAYS go to goo around babies. True.

She is GORGEOUS!

I visited my daughter today. She has a none allergic cat called Czara. So I can be around her. I was showing T vids of cats off here and Clara heard them and leapt up into my lap and swatted the phone ... like "What? You won't let me get in your lap but you coo over these miniature fools?"

T and I were out on her balcony with Czara cooling off when suddenly her head shot back and her eyes went HUGE ... just like Pips OMG cat :lol:... we both FROZE! ...spider?.. slowly looked above us and it was only a tiny gecko. :lol: Bloody cat! :lol:

Aww, thanks folks. :D @Del :lol: cats are funny creatures...

She is not usually a cuddly cat. I'm pretty much the first person she go for if she wants a cuddle - mum is the next if I'm not there. I want to take her with me when I leave this house... But then how can anyone split these two up?

They are brother and sister, the black cat is Leo, and have always been together.

Gorgeous cat, got the superior look off to a T.
