My Blog Stop!

Do you enjoy European history and British comedy TV shows? My spouse introduced me to BBC programs back in the 70s. Fawlty Towers was one of my favorites. Unfortunately, there is one show that I vaguely recall but can't remember the name or the names of any of the people in it, so it's hard for me to search for it.

Reasons to be a Francophile This Month

It's July!  Received a fun reminder in my eMail Inbox about the joys of being a francophile. Even though you may be a different nationality, this site called Foursquare, suggested reasons why you can pretend to be French during the month of July. One main reason is so you can take part in Bastille Day celebrations and treat yourself by dining out at a restaurant that serves French food.


Hmmm? Don't know about where you all live, but I don't know of restaurant in the USA that serves French cuisine that I can afford! 

So! As an affordable alternative, I'm going to be a pseudo-francophile by indulging in a platter of french fries and/or enjoying french toast for breakfast. It's true that the French did not invent french fries nor they invent french toast.  But they both use the word “french”. That's good enough for me!  :)  Happy Bastille Day!!
