Mitterrand’s lolita? The woman was in her 40s, about 10 yrs his junior; with social status and money of her own. I can't imagine a self-respecting man hosting some social parasite these days.

Re: norway

Interesting thing I've learnt from a local today during a countryside walk. We encountered a black small snake sleeping by the road. It turns out that Scandinavian adders can be blackberry sometimes - an adaptation to better absorb light! Still part of the population preserves the lighter colouring,...
