Could any one please tell me anything about Taillevent (also known as Guillaume Tirel). I'm doing a project on him and can't find anything! I'm doing it in french but even english information would be fine! Any books, websites, you tube videos, really anything.

Resolved Question: Have you ever driven to
We are driving down to the south of France for our summer holiday this year and are unsure of the best route to take. I have booked a hotel for an overnight stay on the A71 near Bourges but can't decide on the best route to get there.
We have been warned to avoid Paris so from Calais we plan to head toward Rouen where we have to choose between staying on the faster motorway towards Le Mans / Tours / Vierzon to join the A71 or from Rouen cutting down towards Evreux / Dreux / Chatres to join the A10 north of Orleans and then the A71.
If anyone has done this journey before please can you share your experience and recommend the best route to take?
I am aware that the Mitchellin site is very good at planning routes but it does not tell me which is the best to drive. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Resolved Question: Vive l'empereur Napoléon
The president's agenda does not include, but Nicolas Sarkozy is to embark on Libya on Thursday morning, accompanied by 80 military police, which is totally new in this kind of operation.
Nicolas Sarkozy to Libya on Thursday? The secret is well kept, but the president could take off for the ancient land of Gaddafi on Thursday. We know that the Elysee seeks to reap the fruits of victory of NATO, after a war largely inspired by Paris. Unless unexpected last minute, the time has come.
Logistics is already aligned with a curiosity that is unprecedented in presidential travel: a company of CRS should be directed to place on board a Transall French army. About 80 men, belonging to the CRS based in Quincy-sous-Senard, near Paris, none of which has never been used outside the borders of France. Instruction was given to them to be ready to start around midnight Wednesday, from Evreux, expected return in the night from Thursday to Friday.
Everyone needs to bring 3 liters of water, but meals will be provided by the army. The destination they have not been specifically sent, but each employee will be largely compensated for this day abroad (500 euros). They must leave their uniforms at home, but not their weapons.
The new Libyan authorities have given their approval to host the French police on their soil. Are they really in their role? Until proven otherwise, Libya is not France, not even an overseas department, but the Elysee Palace have decided to bypass the security on behalf of the President. A warlord traveling with the police, it would be unheard of.
