- Canada features at job fair for France's unemployed professionals 1 week ago It goes without saying that unemployment is one of the major issues currently facing the French government.The country's president, François Hollande, made tackling the problem one of his priorities, making endless promises during his first year in office that the upward trend would be reversed by...
- Peugeot - where sometimes an "open day" means "business as usual" 1 week ago The French often come in for something of a pasting when it comes to business practices and customer service.Unfair of course - because each country has its own peculiarities, although admittedly France seems to have more than its far share.Still, no matter how much you might want to defend them,...
- #ouestsarkozy and #JesuisNico trend after Nicolas Sarkozy's front row appearance at Paris march 2 weeks ago Of course it's all a matter of interpretation,But the French media and social networks have been having a little bit of (harmless) fun at the expense of the former French president, Nicolas Sarkozy.He was invited, in his capacity as the newly-elected leader of the opposition centre-right Union pour...
- Charb's poignantly prophetic last cartoon for Charlie Hebdo 3 weeks ago After the events of Wednesday, when armed gunmen shot and killed 12 people at the offices in Paris of the French satirical weekly "Charlie Hebdo", there's little that hasn't been said, written or reported, both within France and abroad.As a tribute to those who died here are two images.The first is...

Wonderfully written text... and I fully recognise myself as a commercial addict... And I'm never one to get up and put the kettle on when the commercials come on... I leave it to my husband... as for the cashmere commercial... well, I hope Arthur (that's my significant other) will see the yeti commercial (is it a yeti?) and think "Oh... that's something that Debbie would love to have for Christmas"... so who knows, I'll keep you posted!

I'm a fan of the France-today blog. I never know what I'm going to read, sometimes it's politics, sometimes it's arty, sometimes it's complete non-sense. But it's always well written and amusing.
