A guide to Eating in France

In France you will find various specialty stores and establishments.

For example:

Boulangerie~ generally is a bakery, however some sell sandwiches and cakes as well. However, do not expect to get a coffee at the same place.

Patisserie~ is a pastry shop, however you might find bread and sandwiches as well.

Café~ In small towns the local café is often the central gathering spot for conversation and meeting friends, some carry a full menu, especially in Paris, however some will have only a small selection of sandwiches and pastries.

Brasserie~ is a café doubling as a restaurant with a relaxed setting, which serves single dishes and other meals. It can be expected to have professional service and printed menus (unlike a bistro which may have neither), but more informal eating hours than a full-fledged restaurant. Typically, a brasserie is open every day of the week and the same menu is served all day
Boucherie~ a butcher shop, where you can find all sorts of meats
Tabac~ is the French word for Tobacco; a store licensed to sell tobacco products in France , they generally sell phone cards, candy and other assorted products, and you can generally get a coffe there as well.

bonne appetit

Prosper, no matter what the papers say!

No matter what the financial and economic "experts" may say ...

Listen up to WAYNE WILLIAMS in San Fernando, Trinidad & Tobago:

Down here in the Caribbean, where I currently reside, the Government has recently announced that revisions will be made to their fiscal plans for 2009, in light of the (so-called) "world-wide economic crisis."
And the media (according to their mode of thinking) summarized the entire announcement as a call to one and all to ...
... "prepare for hard times."
No real surprise there. I'm not a journalist by any account, but I appreciate that, according to their mind-set, "bad news sells papers."
Nonetheless, I (and the rest of the population) had a choice to make upon the publishing of their headlines of "doom and gloom."
And the two points upon which we have to choose are mutually
A) Reject their prophecy of "hard times are a-coming," and begin working (both mentally and physically) towards the realization of prosperity, wealth and abundance,
B) Accept their suggestion and (almost immediately) become a point of attraction for poverty, want, lack and limitation.
I made my choice, in accordance with the following wise words, which just about everyone here will recognize:
"Do not read anything which fills your mind
with gloomy pictures of want or suffering."
I could have only made this choice, backed by faith in the ability (which I and every other person possesses) to realize prosperity.
And the only way to acquire this faith is by gaining an Understanding of how anyone may attain to Wealth.
And the only way to gain Understanding (whether of the subject of getting rich, or anything else) is through Studying.
And for that, I am Grateful.
"Behold -- it is all very good."

Daily Quote

Ralph Waldo Emerson said one component of friendship is truth, and another is tenderness. We treat one another tenderly, recognizing that we are all apt to make mistakes. When we hold each other tenderly, the love doesn't change based on behavior. Through demonstrating compassion to others, we find we're able to hold ourselves tenderly as well. And we recognize that we have already experienced tenderness as we are held in the arms of God.
