Joyeux Noel

Posted on December 19th, 2016

Merry Christmas everyone. This is the hamper that our local mairie in Ménerbes delivers to all residents over 65 who vote. An appetising selection of apéritif wine, duck liver, smoked trout paté, pork terrine with armagnac, duck with foie gras, Cotes de Duras red wine, prunes in armagnac, Provencal biscuits, orange-chocolate croustillants, apple and toffee compote and Arabica coffee. We expect an election soon…… Note that secular France forbids official recognition of any religion over another or none, so it’s “Best Wishes for the New Year”.

Black & White Photography

I have chosen another set of Black and White photographs that are reasonably pleasing, to my eye anyway. This is the second set (forty images), which can be found: HERE .  I hope you like them. (The first set of B&W photos can be found: HERE)
