World Serious Games Begin, Now in London (and Euroland) : Beware the Brits (and Others) !

The French have enjoyed  some “Divines Surprises” for a while, with more gold medals than any other European nation at the Games and low interest rates on international markets in spite of the loss of their AAA and the victory of their socialists.

Pourvu que ça dure (as long as it lasts) …

RF, August 3rd, 2012

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

    

Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle).

               
               
         
           
      

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.

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.

            

Let’s Dance and Celebrate Queen, Country, the Sixties, England and Rock n’ Roll Tonite !

HM the Queen was fair-play enough, to forgive the Pistols who spoilt a previous Jubilee of hers (1977) and Freddie who was quite outrageaous too (Wembley 86), and great enough to organize a revival of the Swingin’ London. (Live on BBC Radio2).

Of course, it was quite logical to celebrate 60 years of reign with the music of the sixties, and to invite both former Beatle Sir Paul (McCartney) and former eccentric Sir Elton John, but all must be grateful for her inviting beautiful Kylie Minogue (and Annie Lennox and several other great singers).

As regards Rock n’ Roll tonite, those who think they may not like watching 60 year old  British ladies twisting and shouting like in the golden era of the mini-skirt (and other beauties England invented in the Sixties and a few hundred years around) …

… may just listen to Madness on the radio on BBC Radio 2 http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_radio_two/listenlive (anyway, the show on TV may only be watched on BBC One for internet user in theUK).

And those who would like to read on the Internet while listening to the show, may e-read some French eBooks about changes in the current years (which are and/or may become quite “Rock n’ Roll” indeed in many other places than re-swingin’ London).

    

They even forgot #EarthDay2012 (and #Churchill and #Europe) in #Paris #France #RadioLondres last (#Election) Sunday …

French elections … and there is more to come … but like Marx (Groucho) said “Food is so bad … and portions are so small”
