With or without Brexit on one side of the Channel, and Yellow Vests on the other, let’s enjoy New Year’s eve with real food, not junk …
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 …).
Renaud Favier – December 31st, 2018
It’s always later than you think, especially the first morning after lovely pajamas days … let’s face 2016, now, and enjoy it if you can’t avoid adulting today, neither postpone tomorrow, nor cancel all bl… Mondays.
Reno – (Monday, bl… 1st Monday of the Year !) January 4th, 2016
PS : Happy 2016 even if it comes much too early (no regret for 2015).
Let’s be less (or more, some facebook addicts and other e-world friends should really love themselves more in so-called “Real Life”) self-centered to be more or less happy in 2016, you
bitches egocentric, selfish selffiemaniac, b…abes f…ollower !
Happy 2016 (in e-French : http://bonneannee2016.wordpress.com) !

Never mind, the French have been crazy since Julius Caesar …

Byzeway, the frogs (and most of the rest of the world, not too mention the Scots) will be nuts in 2016 too, but don’t bother, who cares about France (or the rest of the world) any longer, anyway ? http://bonneannee2016.wordpress.com

In a nutshell in globbenglish (click hereafter for british-coffee-please/) If even the secret hidden (hideous ?) powerful brandy drinking bl…dy ba..rds of the oldschool Washington powerhouses cannot do the job, we normal people have a situation these days and little hope that things may go better by themselves …
In other words in old French (click hereafter for certains-laiment-court/) La théorie du complot global des mains invisibles est excitante, et le fantasme du “shadow” gouvernement centristes en France est amusant, mais sérieusement, si on avant un gouvernement “normal” moins tragi-comique à Paris, ça ne pourrait qu’aller un peu moins vite vers le pire …

Of course, most of us in town regret the lovely, slow steam trains in the beautiful mountains. But those who travel 3rd class in rainy seasons may have a different opinion. And if some love museums and antiques, let them spend their holiday in France.

I wish a very Happy New Year, but as I have run out stamps during 2012 and of iPhone battery at dinner, and as there is no wi-fi in my meditation spot for New Year’s Eve, let’s just surf a while with cool sound and do the homework later in 2013.
Renaud Favier – January 1st, 2013 – Café du matin à Paris
Holiday season is almost over : http://joyeuxnoel2012.wordpress.com/
But 2013 is here (give it a try at least) : http://bonneannee2013.wordpress.com/
Some additional e-reading may be needed about XXIst century (or so they believe) artists, politicians, world, Europe, Euro-nomics, Euro-Fatcats, Eurocrats, France, Frenchonomics, the options for future Competitiveness in France in spite of all reports, elections, airports, funerals and funerals of reports, airports or elections
… about French Politics, French Wine, French Climate, French Changes and other sad issues that may be of interest even if of little importance for the real XXIst century in the world.
Please click on hereafter pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching the weather forecasts on Fox TV and let others enjoy sun, success, beach, love, Champagne, French
learning bashing whilst you seat back in your chair reading the Sun, the Guardian or even worse and more biased against civilisation, the Financial Times or the Economist.
Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle, but an iPhone, an iPad or whatever else works to e-read).
