- (Not) Understanding French politics - the Macron reform 4 days ago Quite an ambitious headline, but don't worry, this isn't about to become a pedagogical piece on the finer details of the French political system.Neither is it going to be a dumbed-down version pandering to the lowest common denominator.Rather it's a simple but hopefully informative observation as...
- Online banking made easy - French style 5 days ago Notice anything...er...ever-so-slightly out of place in the title?Hint...the idea of a service being both "uncomplicated" and "French" at the same time - two attributes which, sadly, so often reveal themselves to be contradictory.Of course, that's a gross generalisation. Or it would be if it...
- Friday's French music break - Keen'V, "Saltimbanque" 1 week ago Friday's French music break this week has more than a feel of Bollywood about it. It's "Saltimbanque" by Kevin Bonnet, better known by his stage name, Keen'V.Quite frankly, the 32-year-old might not be among the greatest singers around but that hasn't detracted from his popular appeal and he has...

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.
