Happy Birthday France! Vive La France!

Happy Birthday to the people of France!
More than a dozen years after the United States of America made its declaration of liberation from the tyranny of British rule, patriots in France stormed the Bastille, a prison, and thus began the French fight for liberty. July 14, 1789 was a monumental day in world history. It was the end of the French monarchy, and the beginning of the fight for liberty and equality in France.

We salute the citizens of France. 217 years old and lookin' pretty good!
composed by Claude-Joseph Rouget de Lisle in 1792 and was declared the French national anthem in 1795.

Allons enfants de la patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivé !
Contre nous de la tyrannie
L'étendard sanglant est levé ! (bis)
Entendez-vous dans les campagnes,
Mugir ces féroces soldats ?
Ils viennent jusque dans nos bras
Égorger nos fils, nos compagnes !

Aux armes, citoyens !
Formez vos bataillons !
Marchons ! Marchons !
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos sillons !
Bon chance!

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, who co-starred in the MTV reality show "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica," recently divorced after three years of marriage.

Hotel Hootchie, er heiress, Paris Hilton says she feels betrayed by her friends who've sold their stories about her to the print and electronic media. In a recent interview Hilton is quoted:
"Yes, sadly I have been betrayed. If I suspect my friends of not being honest with me I'll test them and tell them a lie. If I read about it, then I'll know it was them".
Hilton also disclosed that when she finds out she's been deceived by a trusted friend, "it breaks my heart". The non-confrontational Hilton further states:
"I just hate confronting people, I can't do it. I'm too embarrassed to say something to their face, so I will just immediately cut them off and never ever speak to them again. I won't even tell them why!"
Hilton will begin a fifth season of the reality-style program "The Simple Life" with former best bud Nicole Richie on the E! Entertainment Television channel. Hilton's debut music CD is set for release next month.
