Sorry #NSA #USA, Giant #Facebook Bug is my Fault. I listened to Petula Clark on Youtube

I’m sorry, but please, Facebook, don’t spy stupidly on me. I’m French … next time you do that, it will not just be a Petula Clark joke, my President will spoil your whole internet thing for your Thanksgivings, not just sabotage Facebook a short while.

Besides, I’m not sure you are not wasting your time and American taxpayers money with me : I’m just a normal French man with a normal French Cat and a standard MacBook. I can’t see why this could be of interest for America, all the more, since most of my eBooks are  on Amazon, all blog posts on WordPress, and over 42 000 messages on Twitter, not to mention Gmail.

And by the way, don’t be overstupid, don’t annoy me and so many people just because we want to make real new friends in facebook and you prefer your customers to stay with your standard bunch of gamers, sick brains, and call-people.

Happy Valentine Day from #Paris

The-Aristocats-classic-disney-wallpaper

Of course, not all you need is love music, not everybody loves somebody else’s songs, and even in “the most romantic city in the world”, there are other things to sing about, but some “Love-Songs” from Paris a day may help keep trouble away.

Suntanning is Has-Been, Be (Read) Smarter on the Beach

What can he read ? Where the hell did he buy this hat ?

If you’re quite anonymous and want to remain so on the beach, this summer, you’ll have to go for the standard beach clothes and read eBooks to prevent the  journalists to know what you read from the book’s cover. Otherwise, you’re in trouble.

What can they read ? Where the hell did they buy thoses clothes ?

RF, August 8th, 2012

Some additional e-reading may be needed about how to be smarter on the beach and other important 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).

               
               
         
           
       

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.

White is White, even at Black Coffee Time in Paris ! So White in #World #Europe #France #2012 ?

As simple as white ? Can’t be that (white ?) simple, not in sophisticated Old World where fashion (not unlike politics) is an Art and nothing is ever just black and white. Not in complex(ed) France. Not at election or breakfast time in colourful Paris.
