It's been wet and cold in Normandy these last ten days so going home won't be such a toil.One or two things we've noticed this year.

There is terrible inflation, prices are way up on what they were in October, which nullifies any gains from the exhange rate.

Prices are marked as prominantly in Francs in the supermarkets as they are in Euros.

There is a proliferation of EU flags, even on D-Day memorials. I suppose it's the death rattle of the EU, a bit like the last days of the Reich.

That's all I can be bothered with. Oh yes, it was their elections on Sunday and all the socialist women we saw looked like men, and the socialist men were all camp.

C'est tout!

Nothing wrong with camp men, Gregg. Get in touch with your feminine side and try a pink shirt!!

As for the Euro, well most of us with half a brain knew that was doomed from the start, didn't we?
