RIP, Neil #Armstrong, Forever First Man on the Moon

Maybe you could have found a cheaper way to go swimming at sea, summer 1969.

Maybe you didn’t need to go that far to find a quiet beach, at that time.

Maybe you could have gone dancing with friends to a closer place, then.

Maybe you should have worn nicer shoes for worldwide television, this day.

Maybe you should have left the place as clean as you had found it in July.

Maybe not. Maybe you did the right choice and said the right thing.

Maybe you could have created a startup rather than joining government.

Maybe you could have played basket ball a more standard way.

Maybe you could have had a less controversial boss.

Maybe you could have been a better “chef” yourself.

Maybe not. Maybe you went the best way and did the best thing.
What is for sure is that, now you can report mission Apollo 11 to Kennedy.
What is for sure, is that you are up there forever, now.
What is for sure, is that you have a nice place under the sun, with a view, now.
What is for sure is that you flew safely back home and won’t ever walk alone.
Good bye, Sir.
Please keep an eye on us, on the US, on earth …

If You Can’t Avoid It, Enjoy It

France and England have been neighbours for quite a while, and one may have have thought, that they could have made friends to enjoy the world’s show. But they just seem to be unable to stop competing against each other, whatever the cost.

That’s the way it is (c’est comme ça) …

Some additional e-reading may be needed about Franco-British competition, serious games and other issues in Europe, France and other places these days. (Please click on pictures).

In #Paris (#France), Hard Days and Hot Shows equally End Up with a Good Late Dinner and Some More Talking

Paris nightlife used to be different before France discovered Revolutions and TV shows. In Oldschool French Politics, people used to talk more about Cuisine or Sex than local elections. Things change, even in Paris, and there may come more “Changement”.

Ps : the undertitle of Molinaro’s film is anachronic, and not to be considered in view of recent situations and people in France, things have changed, they always do, and people have changed, even politicians are different from what they used to be a couple of years centuries ago, there’s always something new happening in Paris. And by the way, the last trendy dish in town was “pâtes aux truffes”, not “asperges en petit pois”, but even the pasta is already has-been, everybody is on a diet now in France, and it may last quite a while even if the wheater is warm in Europe next summer.

But as the old French saying goes : “Les carottes sont cuites … let’s have dinner and the whole thing off, tomorrow will be another day et les lendemains vont chanter, whatever song, whoever sings, whatever works”.

That’s all there is to say now. But one never knows what may happen with those French People. Some are surprising and worth listening to, reading about, remembering for inspiration. Everybody knows, that when the going gets tough in France, the tough Frenchmen keep talking (some even walk their talk, but usually, voters and other citizens let them talk).

RF, really.
