Thank you for responding. I should have mentioned that I DID notice such a
red mark in Rennes-le-Château - on the exterior wall of the small church in
Saunière's graveyard (during my trips in 94 and 99), yet nobody could
explain. Except that, foolish as I can be!, I just cannot remember where I
read about the significance of such a mark. But I DO remember about it. In
my belief, Rennes-le-Château is a beautifully strange, falsy esoteric and an
evidently overly done cover-up to mesmerize, distract, confuse people away
from more significant and smaller « signs». In my humble and amateur
opinion, Saunière's décor was meant to DISTRACT any attention from more
important, interesting and very subtle things that are historically
meaningful... Here I go again!: I am going to be marked... with red marks!!!
Rem,ember, my self-introducing question just a few months ago about «
reddish birthmarks»?  Now this!!! Oh, dear Niven, forgive me for I do not
know really where the hell I am heading BUT I am looking hard and am
enjoying every minute of it!
