A lie can be halfway round the world before the truth has got its boots on. ~ James Callaghan
I have been watching off and on the TOUR DE FRANCE, this year 2012, it runs from Saturday June 30to Sunday July 22 2012. The main group of riders is called a Peloton, which is where we get the English word platoon from, a group of military men.
In French peloton can mean, ball, squad, or pack.
The photograph below was taken at La Guimorais, 35350 nr Saint-Coulomb, in Bretagne, France I felt that the horizon looked like the world is round.
Some people still believe that the earth is indeed flat and a Flat Earth Society exists! Link to wikipedia HERE.
My very best wishes to you.
