Bonus : It looks like it, doesn’t it ?

 

 

 

The (#Green) #French should soon be (Back) at Work for a (to) #Change (#France)

Fifty-Fifty, fair enough, but does it work ?

Everybody in France (and other places where people think a sinking Europe is a bad customer and could be an awful debtor) cross fingers, that after their never ending French elections and summer holiday, the French are ready for real work, now.

French Lagarde (IMF Boss) & French Lamy (WTO Boss)

Everybody, even out of France, expects the French Government is seriously at work, now. Not just playing “serious games” …

Cécile Duflot, August 2012, at French Green Summer Camp. Was elected “Député” of Paris thanks to Socialist/Ecologist agreement at 2012 French presidential election. Currently Minister of Housing in François Hollande Government

Not like the French handball champions who deserved a long holiday after their gold medal celebrated by getting drunk and devastating a TV studio where the were interviewed, neither like their national football team that has become the shame of France and laughing stock of the planet with or without playing, nor like their patriots who were not in London to support France at the Games, but are real red government carpet fans who got free tickets for the one way plane or train to London the Oympics as almost every French tax-exiled in England everybody in London …

Like the French President.

Well, well, well …

But not like the French Ecologists, whose boss is quite desperate at their annual 3-day meeting somewhere in the French countryside …

Not well, not well, not well …

… as he sees the naked Green France.

Well, well, well …

The Green France with glasses …

Well ?

… or without glasses …

Not well !

… or with glasses …

Well ?

… or without glasses …

Not well !

… or not decided about the glasses …

Well …

… or whatever works, with or without glasses …

Definitely not well …

… or whoever walks talking romance or talks walking romance all the time instead of working …

As well as can be …

France, so Green, so French, So Good, So Fresh … and hopefully back at work soon(er or later).

Never mind … it’s just Grass …

So French, so good : “growth is around the (French) corner and all lights are green” (but not vice-versa).

Some additional e-reading may be needed about Frenchology, Frenchonomics and other French, or even more important, issues. (Please click on pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching the weather forecasts on TV and 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 and 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).

Good (War)Game(s), #London2012 ! Merci, Madam #Queen #England #UK #OlympicBritain

Not that praising the Brits be my pleasure, especially as they cheated France a couple of time, but great games, with talent, energy and a little bit of Madness. Bravo and thank you @ everybody. Bravo and thank @ London. Bravo and merci, Madam. (Please, click on the hereabove picture for the debriefing of the games, and on the hereunder image for more praising of Great, Olympic Britain, which is as reliable as ever, both as a great friend and as a great … match).

Anyway, Olympics are as good as holiday and watching TV on the sofa with a cool beer or singing old anthems in a stadium or the streets, but it’s time to go back to real competition #InRealLife, now (please click on picture to download & read the free eBook) if you want to be able to pay the rent and to afford a German car made in Britain (or Germany, but those are much less fun, much more German).

Some additional e-reading may be needed about how to be smarter at work or on the beach, and other important issues about the future of Europe, France, Britain and other places of the changing world these days. (Please click on pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching things happen and others enjoy success, love, 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).

Olympic Games in London are good, but Jubilee comes more often in the UK. Fortunately enough …

London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony

Sir Winston Churchill, once asked how he was so fit in his old age, answered : “No sport, never”. Her Majesty cannot say all what she thinks, but it might well be the same. Though she is more “rock n’ roll” than the old lion. Anyway, God Save the Queen.

London 2012 Jubilee Concert

Please kindly click on hereafter pictures for French eBooks to download on Amazon.com or Youscribe.com to e-read whenever, during or after the 2012 Olympics, wherever, in London or  whatever second best place in the world.

            

God Save the Queen and Olympic Great Britain

Those who thought  Madness singing “My House” on top of Buckingham Palace for the Jubilee was as far as her Royal Highness would go couldn’t imagine her parachuting with James Bond over the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games …

Please kindly click on hereafter pictures for a sample of French eBooks that can be downloaded on Amazon.com to e-read during or after the 2012 Olympic Games wherever enjoyable in London or other nice places of the world.

            

“Where there’s a Willis away” … 1000 Ships, plus Cutty Sark, for Queen and Country

Last time so many ships were seen on the Thames River was 350 years ago, long before the Empire was built with united energy and intelligence, then preserved with great Royal talent. Even before the Cutty Sark sailed  first. Bravo @ all in Britain.

The old Lady (the Cutty Sark, of course, honni soit qui mal y pense) will be happy to hear what so many boats have to say about so many seas since so many years, all the more since she can’t herself sail “odlschool way” for Queen and Country anymore.

One may not always agree with the Brits, especially when French, but one must admit they did a great job at sea over centuries, even if one may regret not to see the Queen’s picture under the sun of the other side … of the world, in Hong-Kong too. Anyway, please Click on picture to hear “Rule Britannia”.

To wait for the naval extravaganza, the James Clavell novell “Tai-Pan” novel  is as close to pefect as possible. Otherwise, to read in French about less British changes in the world as it goes nowadays “the other side(s)”, please click on pictures.

    

Diamonds are Forever, So Queen Elisabeth and England Seem to Be : Happy Jubilee, Madam

From a French perspective, England and the UK may not have always been easy neighbours and perfect Euro-partners over the last millenium or so, but any fair-play French person must admit, that both this Queen and that Country are quite admirable !
