Is it "La Belle Hélène de Troies"? Nice juxtaposition with the bookshelves.
P.S.: Should we send you some of our Canadair Water Bombers? Our forestfire period is in May and June, so we don't need them right now. For us fires are a natural part of the cycle in the northern boreal forest, and we only fight them if they endanger lives or property. Some fires are as big as the whole country of Luxemburg.

@Wolfgang Prigge: THE SITUATION IN GREECE IS VERY SERIOUS, many countries have already sent help, 62 dead!!! our firefighters and now the army are at WAR with the flames, a nation is in tears, a sad very sad afair,.... regards

Walt from Scarborough, Canada
