Too School for Cool

I am taking a History class online this summer, which I was considering dropping as this isn’t my favorite part of history. I thought I was taking the class I dropped last semester which is from known history through the Bronze Age, Sumeria, Ancient Greece and so on, because I already had the text book. LOL  However I did not pay attention when registering and low and behold this class is the second half of the text book. So I have decided to take this one until it gets close to the Drop date, and I will see how I am doing. So far, so good as I recently took an exam, after only reading the lecture notes and scored 92 out of a possible 100.

So good old King Louis XIV was in one of these chapters and it reminded me of a great movie I saw not to long ago Vatel. Oh the opulence and decadence of this monarch.

The Sun King

King Louis XIV

Everyone always goes on about The Palace Versailles and how it is so beautiful. Umgh to me, it is garish and gaudy! Much to frufru.

It is like Donald Trump’s Manhattan apartment.

So the Trumps must certainly be the reincarnation of the family of the Sun King. LOL

So anyway….if you like Period movies, see Vatel. I really enjoyed it.
