HAPPY EASTER 2019




HAPPY EASTER 2019 -
By Bernard Bujold -
Easter is the most important holiday of Catholic Christianity because Easter Sunday commemorates the resurrection of Jesus that the New Testament places two days after the Good Friday Passion. 
Easter Sunday can also mean tasting delicious chocolate in different forms. And on this level, the faithful Ulysses got the scare of his life when he saw a gigantic reproduction of himself in milk chocolate at the cottage... 
However, he quickly recovered from his emotions to enjoy the beautiful weather on Sunday, April 21, 2019, which made the celebration even more enjoyable, whether you were at the cottage or elsewhere, with family and friends. 
But Ulysses had another adventure a few minutes after the discovery of chocolate, when he was walking around the cottage and saw an image of his idol Donald Trump appear in the garden, greeting him friendly...
A kind of miraculous apparition! Ulysses was in ecstasy! 
Happy Easter 2019!

Happy Easter period 2019!

DISASTER IN DOWNTOWN MONTREAL - SPRING 2019



DISASTER IN DOWNTOWN MONTREAL - SPRING 2019-
By Bernard Bujold -
We can sympathize with the city of Paris and the sad disaster that transformed Notre Dame Cathedral into a kind of urban wreck, but downtown Montreal also looks like a disaster area and especially the legendary Ste Catherine Street! 
As former mayor Denis Coderre would say: "It will be beautiful once it is finished..." but for the moment it is depressing, to say the least. Even the always happy Ulysses The Dog is sad...

NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL OF PARIS AND MONTREAL BASILICA



NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL OF PARIS AND MONTREAL BASILICA-
By Bernard Bujold- 
There is a great similarity between the Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral and the Basilica on Notre Dame Street in Old Montreal. Indeed, the architecture of Notre-Dame de Montréal church was inspired by the two towers of Notre-Dame de Paris. The Montreal work became the first Gothic Revival-style church in Canada when its construction began in 1824 and was completed in 1829. Obviously, Notre Dame de Paris has a much longer past since its origin begins in 1163, which means more than 850 years of history. 
The atmosphere of the two churches is also similar in their dimly lit interiors and dark brown benches. 
The reconstruction of Notre Dame de Paris, following the tragic fire of 15 April 2019, could last several years, but the French authorities have promised to rebuild everything.
