Happy New Year from oldschool France, with Love (of good life, good food, and good sense of humor, as long as they are acceptable to local standards …).

The late French President François Mitterrand once said he loved so much Germany, he was happy there were two (people older than 50 remember Berlin’s Check Point Charlie and other post WW2 commie goodies in Europe).

One could as well wish Euroland be divided into a Euro-Mark, and a Euro-Franc zones, post Brexit.

Or prefer there be only one Euro(pa), as well as less than two Ireland …

Me too (but “to prefer” or “prefer two” ?)

Sous les Stones, la plage ?
