My Poppa, who was born in 1912, once told me that when he was in elementary school one of his classmates was a girl named Alsace Lorraine..and it does have a pleasant sound to it.. that area was part of France since the days of the Holy Roman Empire..it didn't become part of Germany until after the Franco-Prussian war of 1870...the French got it back after WW I, then it was seized by the Germnans again in 1940..France got it back in 1945 and has managed to hang on to it...so far...

I forgot to add that the Alsace in northern France was at one time German. The culture, food, and homes are still Germanic.

I ate in an Alsace restaurant on the Champs Elysee last summer. When I saw the plate of food, I told them to take it away, and I proceeded to drink more white Reisling wine, perfectly chilled of course...to dull the horrors of what I saw. It was a HUGE plate of saurkraut, topped and surrounded by two types of blood sausages, one white one with veins, and a big slab of bacon. The name of the plate on the menu was misleading. But, I did eat the whole basket of french bread. Lovely time.
