No-one cares about Theon

Ages ago, John Theon had his five minutes of fame in the usual tedious manner; as blogged by me and others with too much time on their hands. Since then his wiki-life looks like:

I know, its not very exciting, but I like to record such things; though it appears that I missed his other two deaths. The total absence of any news about him since his deletion supports his non-notability.

[Update: it looks like he is due yet another death]

We've just come back from Paris, BTW. Even RS won't guess exactly where:

Nowadays I seem to rely on wikipedia for my news stories. Not necessarily for the truth, but that something has occurred.

THe photo looks a bit like some expensive medieval tiles, but I don't know Paris well enough to say where.

I had to cheat.

Thought you meant Greyjoy. He's notable.

Before I cheat, I'm going to guess it's the old Baths building that now holds a bunch of mediaeval stuff including the Dame a la Licorne tapestries. Cluny.
