  • Sainte Julie
    on Apr 8, 2015
    For all the Julies out there. This is your saint day! This image is from a piece of artwork at the church in my adopted hometown of Thomery, France. Sainte Julie was born in 1751 and grew up loving to play teacher. She later became one... Shock...

  • Why Not Street
    on Aug 30, 2014
    This translates to "Why Not" street... So, why not go for a bike ride? Arzon is a peaceful port village in Brittany. Some friends bought an apartment there... Great place for crêpes, caramel butter, all things "Bretagne."...
  • The McBaguette
    on May 9, 2012
    Two all-beef patties, special sauce, cheese, lettuce, pickles, no onions, mustard, and certainly NOT on a sesame seed bun!* This is the McBaguette, McDonald's newest burger creation in France. McDo (mic-doh') as they call it here, has combined an al...

  • Street of Choice?
    on May 7, 2012
    I'd especially go for living here if it intersected with Rue de Glace (Ice Cream Street). One can dream. Actually, a pie is a magpie. It is also slang for chatterbox, so maybe I really should be living here... This was from Provins, France. It's a...
  • Math Majors

    The Nine Days! From May 2nd to 13th. Okaaaay. The French pride themselves on being great at math. Actually, here, they are....because if you count only weekdays and Saturdays (closed Sundays) and account for the May 8th holiday, there are nine day...
  • Who Won Where?
    on May 5, 2012
    This is a really cool site if you are interested in the results of tomorrow's French election. It's from Liberation, a national newspaper here. It tells us not only who won, but who won where... And it's interesting above here to see the closeup of...
  • A Cat-chy Expression
    on May 4, 2012
    In French, they have a proverb, "La nuit tous les chats sont gris." All cats are grey in the dark.
  • Cat on a Cold Brick Wall
    on May 3, 2012
    This guy looked like he thought we had no business walking on his street. I should have explained in my best French that it's also mine... But that would have been being catty, non? LOL. In French, they say, "Il n'y a pas de quoi fouetter un chat,"...
