Many of the paintings in Windsor Castle were worth over fifty-million at the time of the fire. More now. The big one (that they had to hide from the French during dinner) has an incalculable value.

When the powers that be were looking for timber for the roof, they spotted oaks on a royal estate. They enquired if they could cut them down for the roof. 'Why not . . . that's what they were planted for, n-hundred years ago.'

We, humans, could rebuild Notre Dame in 1/10 of the time it took to build it. Twenty years. It might be a symbol of how we can pull together when things are important enough.
