A little off topic, but I’m in need of everyone’s favorite recipes for halibut and/or salmon. My husband just returned from a five-day Alaskan fishing trip, and I’ve got fifty pounds of flash frozen fish fillets. I’ve got one go-to salmon recipe (barbequed on a cedar plank) but now I’m in desperate need of some variety. Your suggestions are appreciated! I hope all my American readers enjoyed their 4th of July celebrations.
See ya on the Net,

“The darkest period of the French Revolution is called the Reign of Terror which lasted from 1793 to 1794. During this time, a man named Robespierre led the National Convention and the Committee of Public Safety. He wanted to stamp out any opposition to the revolution, so he called for a rule of ‘Terror.'” In addition to this multi-page history lesson, there is also a crossword puzzle, word search, and glossary of terms.
Fact Monster: French Revolution
Fact Monster offers a hyperlinked history of the French Revolution, reprinted from the Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia. “Historians disagree in evaluating the factors that brought about the Revolution. To some extent at least, it came not because France was backward, but because the country’s economic and intellectual development was not matched by social and political change.” A link to related articles can be found at the bottom of this page.
