About Me

Moved to France in September of 2018 after buying our apartment in 2017 after the debacle of the election. We're glad to be here, but we continue to be involved with what's happening in the US.

Four Strong Winds - Ian & Sylvia

Ian Tyson died this week. He was 89.

Amazing J&B Scotch commercial in Spanish.

You may tear up -

Origin of My Country Tis of Thee

Fascinating origin of the tune "God Save the King/Queen", which is also "My Country Tis of Thee"..... it was originally composed by Lully for Louis XIV, so it's French in origin!!!
Particularly weird that it was written to celebrate the king's recovery from surgery ....for an anal fistula.

England vs France - Live on TFI - at 20:30 hours CET - SPOILERS

Just started watching at 34 minutes in - France 1 - England 0

It was a near thing, but no sanctions on a BBC weather presenter.
