It's A Long Road..

The car was again updated in 1956 when the engine was increased in capacity.. The two-piece split windscreen was replaced with a curved one-piece one and the rear window was enlarged..An upmarket car based on the Minor floorpan using the larger BMC B-Series engine was sold as the Riley One-Point-Five/Wolseley 1500 beginning in 1957: versions of this Wolseley/Riley variant were also produced by BMC Australia as the Morris Major and the Austin Lancer..In February 1961 the Morris Minor became the first British car to sell more than 1,000,000 units..1965–68 Riley Kestrel/Wolseley 1100, 55 hp (41 kW) at 5500 rpm and 61 lb·ft (83 N·m) at 2500 rpm..The company, at the same time, presented a celebratory Minor to London's Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, but this car was constructed of cake..

However, there is no evidence that Queen Marie-Antoinette ever uttered this phrase.. It was first attributed to her by Alphonse Karr in Les Guêpes of March, 1843.."An ancient Chinese emperor who, being told that his subjects didn't have enough rice to eat, replied, 'Why don't they eat meat?..The Zizhi Tongjian records Chinese history from 403 BC to 959 AD, covering 16 dynasties and spanning across almost 1,400 years, and contains 294 volumes (巻) and about 3 million Chinese characters..It was one of the largest historical magna opera' in history..It is quite certain that in seeing the people who treat us so well despite their own misfortune, we are more obliged than ever to work hard for their happiness.. The King seems to understand this truth..Marie Antoinette, age 14, didn't arrive at Versailles from Austria until 1770.. She was unknown to him at the time of writing his work so she couldn't have been the "great princess" mentioned by Rousseau..

The Society of the Friends of the Constitution (Société des amis de la Constitution), commonly known as the Jacobin Club (Club des Jacobins ), was the most famous and influential political club in the development of the French Revolution.. The Jacobin Club was heterogeneous and included both prominent parliamentary factions of the early 1790s, the radical Mountain and the more moderate Girondists..The National Guard eventually switched its support from the Girondists to the Mountain, allowing the Mountain to stage a coup d'etat..The Annecy shootings, also the French Alps shootings or the Chevaline killings, refers to the shootings on 5 September 2012 of a British family and a French citizen on the Route Forestière Domaniale de la Combe d'Ire near Chevaline, Haute-Savoie, near the southern end of Lake Annecy...

Cheshire Police have called off the hunt for the murderer of THREE French tourists after another body was found in Staffordshire..Farm workers found the victims two days ago..In france, it is "6 geece a-dancing".. They saw one of the women "obviously dead" by the roadside before discovering the group's tent and car nearby..Mr Berland was also dead, but the other sister was still alive.. She was taken to Chester Royal Infirmary but died during surgery.. A diary belonging to Monique Liebert gave vital clues about the trio's movements before the attack.. One variant iterates over the 12 months of the year ("Le premier mois d'l'annee", etc...).The exact origins and the meaning of the song are unknown, but it is highly probable that it originated from a children's memory and forfeit game..The parents of the French tourists arrived at Manchester Airport yesterday..Fred Basset Lorang in Norway, Laban in Sweden, and Retu, Pitko or Koiraskoira in Finland...

Fontenay-aux-Roses is a commune in the southwestern suburbs of Paris, France.. It is located 8.6 km (5.3 mi) from the center of Paris..Fontenay is the location of the Commissariat à l'énergie atomique, where the reactor Zoé was activated..The choice of moderator and fuel was dictated by the undeveloped state of the French nuclear industry at the time, which could not manufacture the corrosion-proof equipment needed for a more advanced unit.. The core, immersed in the pool, consisted of 60 aluminum-cased vertical rods containing 3 tons of uranium oxide pellets, controlled by cadmium rods..The building that formerly housed Zoé is now an exhibit space, the Museum of the Atom..Fontenay-le-Comte is a commune in the Vendée department in the Pays de la Loire region in France.. It is a sub-prefecture of the department..Rabelais traveled frequently to Rome with his friend Cardinal Jean..Using the pseudonym Alcofribas Nasier (an anagram of François Rabelais minus the cedille on the c), in 1532 he published his first book, Pantagruel, that would become the first of his Gargantua series..At Maison Laval on rue Rabelais, a townhouse built at the end of the 18th Century, Emperor Napoleon 1st and his wife, Joséphine, spent the night of August 7 and 8, 1808..It is in the first book that Rabelais writes of the Abbey of Thélème, built by the giant Gargantua ..

Barlaston is a village and civil parish in the borough of Stafford in the county of Staffordshire, England..

On the THIRD day of Christmas my true love sent to me THREE French Hens, 2 Turtle Doves and a Partridge in a Pear Tree..Salmon, writing from Newcastle, claimed in 1855 that the song "[had] been, up to within twenty years, extremely popular as a schoolboy's Christmas chant"..In Scotland, early in the 19th century, the recitation began: "The king sent his lady on the first Yule day, | A popingo-aye [parrot]; One might as well be talking to a parrot | Wha learns my carol and carries it away?" The succeeding gifts were 2 partridges, 3 plovers, a goose that was grey, 3 starlings, 3 goldspinks, a bull that was brown, 3 ducks a-merry laying, 3 swans a-merry swimming,an Arabian baboon, 3 hinds a-merry hunting, 3 maids a-merry dancing, 3 stalks o' merry corn..The 3 arrived in Dover on the 6 July for a camping trip around England and Wales... opening some Goddammed windows!. That's why you can't stand up in here, the Goddammed place smells like a coffin!.. Is this a dagger which I see before me, the handle toward my hand?.We think we've got all the time in the world, but how much time has the world got?.All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little Psalm!. Oh, oh, oh!..Light thickens, and the crow makes wing to the rooky wood..Look like the innocent flower but be the serpent under't...
