Movement of Jah people.

Say what you like about God but being able to admit he is a jealous God is the first step towards bettering himself.

If you mean "wid" then she is not bad, she was a lot better before she had the baby.

Went to Paris on a School trip when  I was 14, honestly can't remember if we visited Notre Dame.

So it might not have been you?

Good that we're still in the EU and as proud Europeans, we will no doubt happily make generous donations to the rebuilding fund.

Spoiler

Although maybe not across the entire length of the UK.

The Arnault and Pinault families, owners of Louis Vuitton and Gucci, have this morning donated €300 million between them to assist with the restoration. Millions more coming in by the hour.

It appears the French government have gone out with the begging bowls.

Same (day trip on a Scout camp). I remember the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre, but not Notre Dame. 

A few folk on the news were saying "when you think of Paris, Notre Dame is the first thing you think of".  I call bullsh*t on that one anyway (it's undoubtedly the Eiffel Tower for that).

There is a plantation of trees at Versailles that was planted in case repairs were ever needed

I’m the opposite, 2 things I was the most impressed with and remember most were Notre Dam and Napoleons tomb at Les Invalides.
I know I was at the arc de triumph as my hotel was just round the corner but can’t recall being that impressed.
Eiffel Tower was as expected and the Louvre was that big it was daunting. Although the Mona Lisa was shit, the colossal painting “Wedding at Cana” by Paolo Veronese is the one thing I remember from the Louvre, it’s infinitely more impressive.

As you say, mention Paris and the Eiffel Tower is the first thing 99% of people will think of.

The first thing that springs to mind for me regarding Paris, it was where I first learned to smoke and also discovered the joys of cheap French red wine.

I was up Notredame when I was four years old. My mum shat a brick when 8 disappeared out to have a closer look at the gargoyles.

It could've been me :(
