He was a free man, with a dream, whose vision changed our world and hopes
He lived as a free man, whose freedom changed our vision of our world
Nelson Mandela was a free man, who walked his talks, long roads and stiff paths
Good Bye, Madiba, keep walking your way and please give us hope and freedom
You left us a free man, whose freedom had brought us joy, love, respect and hope

President Obama pardoned two 20-week-old, 38-pound turkeys named Popcorn and Caramel — and announced Popcorn as the official “National Thanksgiving Turkey,” after the American public weighed in on their favorites via Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

You may be New Yorker (reader), or not, Thanksgiving is coming at full speed.
You may be a youngster strongly against cruelty toward birds …
You may be an oldschool radical free thinking beatnik …
You may fear family celebrations like socialism and French foie gras …
It’s gonna be Thanksgiving soon (and Xmas not much later), like Turkey, to not.
If you can’t avoid it, enjoy it.

Beaujolais Nouveau Day is a lovely French tradition, if not an ancient “coutume”.
Beaujolais Nouveau is a cool French drink, if not an extremely tasty wine.
Beaujolais Nouveau is Fun, but it’s soon over. Let’s enjoy it as long as it lasts !
In Paris, this year, they invented some now goodies around Beaujolais Nouveau : the “Beau” beau…ttle of Beaujolais, and the Beaujolais Nouveau Day Macaron.
Let’s have fun, seriously, and drink French Beaujolais Nouveau !

One can hardly believe, in this world of struggle for money, competition for power, and killing spirit for whatever is more or less worth it, that a small virtual reward in the internet world can make an adult blogger, as happy as a child on the beach.
But it does, especially when the going in real life gets tough …
It does give energy to try and work always better and better …
In a nutshell, il makes you happy !
Il helps move forward.

Hollande’s France is not a country, where people waste time talking about “Sex of angels” or “chicken and egg”. The French don’t have time for that, because they are so very extremely busy arguing Frencholitics, Frenchonomics, and French “affaires.”
Frencholitics are not for wishi-washi people.
Frenchonomics are not for half-hearted sissies.
French “affaires” are not for romantic business people.
Hollande’s France is no country for oldschool doubting men.
Let Hollande’s France think …
