I think we should all agree on a specific time when we all lift our glasses (whereever we are around the world) and 'share' a glass together. I'll be in France with my familly on the 26th June, so will do it from there.

They live in Barbizon, which is just outside Paris (south east). Not really next to Lyon.

Barbizon, between Melun and Fontainbleau, beautiful place in the woods. Well known to all that know about painters.

Its a village, but the prices are sky high LOL

Just an Entree cost the same as a full menue elsewere.  iknow  madashell

I guess the Lottes have brought some Oil from the Emirates and can afford that now    meanpuff
