Certain sources close to Boris Johnson believe than the man likes to hang from a wire in the bedroom.

“Apparently when he got stuck on a zip wire in 2011 he discovered that he liked it and the rest, as they say, is history” said a source who didn’t want to be named.

In other news Johnson is believed to be in favour of Trump buying Notre Dame and turning it into a hotel.

Anyone can submit a guest post and as long as it respectful of different beliefs and behaviours it will probably appear.

It doesn’t need to be about Notre Dame itself although some pieces about that would be most welcome. It can be about anything that a magnificent building like Notre Dame (or others) brings to mind.

Articles can be in your own name or with a pen name. I’d like to do a brief introduction about you, but that’s not required.

Updated to include:

I like good humour.

You can do humour too, even ‘fake news’ as long as it’s obvious that that is what it is. Notre Dame can easily be included  in those!

Trump wrong, the moon is not part of Mars

On Tuesday June 11th, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine was forced to clean up the mess Trump made with his angry tweet that both criticized NASA’s goal to send people back to the Moon and said the moon was a part of Mars.

Oh and when the Notre Dame cathedral caught fire earlier in April, French officials corrected Trump’s unsolicited advice about how to fight the fire, noting Trump’s plan would have caused the entire structure to collapse.

Celebrate… in hard hats

Bishop Patrick Chauvet, Rector of Notre-Dame Cathedral, has announced that mass will be celebrated for the first time since the blaze on Saturday 15th or Sunday 16th of June and that hard hats will be mandatory.

If I know anything…

the most important thing is to laugh and smile, whatever happens. Oh and don’t be responsible for anything bad, that’s very important too.

As the restoration of Notre Dame gets underway the genuine news stories are drying up a bit, though I hope to cover anything worthwhile. But as I hope to make at least one post a day and as I think life needs a little humour, I will continue with a little dig the people I consider ridiculous when I can.

Oh and I’ll try to include Notre Dame in any story if possible, just because.
