Gee, what a day. After 24 hours of stuffing myself with Christmas food(!) I came back to Paris and rushed to the Olympia to attend a show by Dany Boon. Dany Boon is a French comedian well known for a movie I already told you about: Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis. This time he was alone on stage and it felt good to laugh after so much family gathering (not that my family is not funny!) Now I have to rush again, this time to pack, for I'm going away tomorrow for a week. Where? You'll find out tomorrow... And last but not least. Thanks a million for all you Christmas wishes. I love you all.

  1. I love Dany Boon. I haven't seen the Ch'tis (If it has been released in the USA, it hasn't made it to the ragged edge of the universe where I live), but he cracked me up in "My Best Friend." Happy vacation to you, Eric.

  2. I hope you are coming to America, and with that, a very sunny city. How about PHX or MIA, two places I know very well(OK ,LAX for the West coasters). FORGET NYC, it is cold and dreary here right now.

  5. Yes, as Eric says, he loves us all. But he likes me best!

    I'm guessing he's going to Florida.

    Bets, anyone?

    My sister and husband spent it in Paris, and joined the masses on the Champs Elysees to see the lights.

  9. Earlier this year I sent out this video to illustrate how the current administration is masquerading as a leadership team different from the previous one. The video documents how the choice between Democrat and Republican is really no choice at all. Recent history has confirmed the message of this video. Here we are almost a year after Bush left office and we see that really only the rhetoric has changed. The same program of economic, military, and civil rights disintegration remains in full effect. The sequel to this video is now available to shed more light on this false choice of governance. This sequel exposes: 1) how mega banks like Goldman Sachs created this financial crisis to then introduce their solution: a government hand-out of trillions of dollars to them; 2) how this same scheme is being set up again on a global scale through the development of a cap-and-trade derivatives market; 3) how Obama is simply managing this economic disintegration program that was furthered by Bush (and his predecessors) going back as far as Carter; 4) how Obama's actions have been just as unconstitutional as Bush's and how our country is being pushed deeper into an oppressive surveillance society. The sooner we acknowledge this false choice of governance we are given, the better the chances are that we can produce a real choice that represents us, not the institutionalized power structure pillaging us. If you would like to learn more about the timely issues raised in these videos please visit this alternative news website, where these videos were produced.

  11. A Parisian friend suggest that I see "Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis." Can't say that I understood all of it, but it _was_ funny and informative about the culture of the North. And thanks for the photo of the Olympia, a very famous place in its own right.
