Week 39 2015


A very BIG Thank You to everyone who helped out, supported, donated, gave cakes, drank coffee and ate cake at the coffee morning on Friday.  We were initially thwarted by rain, but by the end of the morning, the sun was out and we were all outside. Cake by the river…

In total we raised €625 which will be split between the Macmillan Cancer Care and the Bergonie Institute in Bordeaux.  Once again, many thanks!

Whatever you do this week in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a great time.

Best wishes,

Fred and Mick, two old friends, are on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children's confused lives, Mick's enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. But someone wants at all costs to hear him conduct again.   Starring Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel and Rachel Weisz

And finally…

St Emilion was alive with the sound of bagpipes to mark the Jurade.  This occasion celebrates the start of the harvest in St Emilion.  The winemakers parade through the village in their finery, ending up at the top of the King’s Tower.  Thank you RD for the super photos.
