Sorry about that Clotilde...
I am at 8367 ft. above sea level in Teton Village, Jackson Hole Wyoming.
Must be the elevation, or perhaps the Christmas cheer.
Apres ski anyone.

Joyeux Noël

Deni I did not mean to single you out--many many people have added that pesky "h". I want always to say, yes, there's an h in chocolate, and an h in zucchini, but now you must stop!
(Of course Clotilde is too nice to correct us.)

How is "Clotilde" pronounced in French? klo-teel with a silent "d" ?

I'm glad someone else wondered that too! After watching the clip from the Today show I was thinking 'I never knew that was how you pronounced her name- wow I'm such a philistine!' turns out that it was the Today presenter who was wrong and I was right all along Very Happy

I think they said it right on the Today show. Ann Curry is fluent in French.

Hmmm, I'm not so sure about that, richardab.

Did you read Pim's comment on the The Shortest 3 1/2 Minutes of my Life?

What's up with that Ann calling you Clotee though?
