Chirac opens high way

Image Hosted by
The highest viaduct in the world - 343m (1,125ft)

On 14 December, the President of the French Republic, Jacques Chirac, officially opened the Millau Viaduct in France's southern Aveyron region. The Viaduct completes the A75 motorway across the Massif Central, creating a direct link between Paris towards Barcelona, and spans the Tarn Gorge to alleviate the notorious traffic congestion throughout the area.

Designed by Foster and Partners in association with an engineering group led by the French engineer Michel Virlogeux, the Viaduct illustrates how a collaboration between architects and engineers can result in a structure of breathtaking beauty.

- BBC "French construction group Eiffage - that built the Eiffel Tower - financed the project in return for the right to collect receipts from a bridge toll for 75 years".

Au revoir Canelle

This is utterly outrageous and frightfully sad. They shouldn't have been shooting the wild boar for "Sport" in any case.

Canelle - BBC

Fury at killing of Pyrenean bear Only about 15 brown bears are thought to remain in the Pyrenees. One of the last remaining bears in the Pyrenees has been shot by hunters, to the fury of French environmentalists.

The 15-year-old female - known by game wardens as Cannelle - was surprised with her 10-month-old cub in the Aspe valley by a party on a wild boar shoot. Read more via...BBC

Nature Notes by K

Plums - photo by Zen

One sure sign that summer is passing, other than the yellowing and falling of the first leaves, is the passing of the plums. Now when we walk beneath the plum tree that just a week ago dropped a score of succulent plums into the rich thick grass overnight, we find only seven or eight plums, some of which have already falen prey to the yellow jackets and African honey bees, so be careful which ones you pick up. I have been stung, and my finger swelled up and hurt as if I had hit it with a hammer. The geese have been stung, so prefer to wait on the terrace for me to find the good plums, which I then feed to them, saving a few for myself. A visitng friend, wary of the grass and bees and things unseen, picked her plums right off the tree, though we rarely do. When they are ripe, they will fall, and now they have almost all fallen.

Esmerelda eating a plum

Here in Molene, things happen quickly, dramatically, and then are over, usually within about two weeks. Three weeks ago, with pecks of plums hanging from the boughs, you had to be careful that the plums were ripe, yet I think we will have no plums at all a week from today..

Bond in Paris

Image Hosted by
Wednesday, September 15, 2004, 8:00 pm
Free and open to the public.

American Library in Paris
10 rue du Général Camou
75007 Paris

Info- 01 53 59 12 60

"The name is Bond… James Bond." Spoken in clipped British tones by the darkly handsome screen star, these words have echoed across the world as movie audiences tense for the newest adventure of Ian Fleming's legendary hero.

To commemorate the anniversary of Ian Fleming's death in 1964 -- Vincent Chenille, a collector of print materials on Bond and Fleming for nearly 20 years, will present an evening devoted to the discovery of the rather flamboyant creator of Bond, his background in the British Secret Service and in journalism, and how Fleming’s own background influenced British spy 007's universe.

Chenille’s exhibit, which is now on display at the Library, showcases both original editions and reprints of Fleming's work in a variety of languages and formats, together with photos, articles, and biographical materials. The background is designed by Armelle Aymonin.

Complementing Chenille's discussion will be a second presentation by Pierre Rodiac of Club 007 France, who will describe the evolution of Bond from the pages of the bestselling paperback novels to the big screen and thence to a hero of mythic stature. His discussion will also encompass works of other writers who, in the past 50 years, capitalized on the Bond persona, including Kingsley Amis, John Gardner, and Raymond Benson.

Presentations will be in English; questions accepted in either French or English. Wine reception to follow.

The saga of the parrot and the fourposter bed

ecozen - animals ecology philanthropy
londonzen - park life

oil painting by Serena Konig

Several years ago, whilst in Toulouse to collect a fourposter bed. My partner Alastair went to buy me a puppy as a present, the pet shop didn't have any, so he got 2 Canaries instead. On his way out he heard anguished shrieks coming from the back of the shop. There in the gloom was a red and grey African parrot in a tiny cage on the floor. This was the start of our parrot saga. There wasn't room in the van for the bed, the cages and us. So a friend drove and we took the train back to Provence. It was a night train, the parrot shrieked the whole time. We called him Corot, perhaps subconsciously because "the Corot" had caused much trouble over the years. Anyway, Corot was sad and lonely and needed better quarters; So Richard and Pierrot our friends who just happened to be master welders were commissioned to make a bird palace fit for Corot.

In the mean time we scoured the pet shops for a companion, near Avignon we found "Richard" another red and grey. He had a very poorly friend huddled up next to him, a black Madagascan...we called him "Pierrot". The aviary was splendid, customisable, demountable. Filled with trees and fallen branches, also a mist system. OK so I couldn't resist buying the tropical rainforest tape! (it was played about once, although I am sure I detected a flicker of appreciation from Corot).

They all got along fine, even the canaries. The fencing was of a smaller guage to stop the canaries escaping. Little by little we saw chewed bits, holes. They were repaired. Richard would sit on a tree and sing away to Pierrot as a diversionary tactic while Corot clipped through the wire.

I had a dream about them escaping, that morning I went downstairs and heard people shouting that the birds had gone! The canaries were still there as was poor Pierrot, but Richard and Corot were gone! We all rushed round the garden (the aviary was on the terrace outside the dining room) we caught sight of something red in one of the little pine trees. It was Richard, he didn't want to come down. Alastair finally managed to reach him, Richard grabbed the palm of his hand in his pincer beak, it hurt. So he was safe and sound and back with Pierrot. I am really glad that Corot flew to freedom and wish the others had gone too. A neighbor came to tell us she had seen a red and green parrot in her garden, was it ours. We saw parrots in Avignon, in the trees behind Credit Agricole.

When winter came the cage was dismantled and put up in the living room. This was fine for all, the 4 dogs never bothered the birds, the mice lived on the floor of the cage and ate seeds. One morning Pierrot was dead on the floor. He usually perched on an old wooden ladder. We took him to the vet, who said that we should be able to find out quite easily how he died. He took a big pair of scissors and literally cut him in half! I am very fond of the vet he is the dearest of friends, but he obviously didn't think that we might be feeling a bit sad or upset by poor Pierrots' demise, he was still warmish. He had always picked at his feathers and looked very ragged, his beak was white which made him seem somewhat anaemic too. So there he was, neatly sliced, mirrored, Pat said immediately that it was kidney failure. Well.

Richard was lonely. We could see all this happening again. When Corot arrived we had thought of flying to Africa and setting him free. One day Pat took us to see a client who kept all kinds of birds, including African Greys, so Richard was introduced into the bird place. I heard some time later that he had mated, had children and was happy. Isn't that super. So when I hear of all these news stories about Parrot infestations in England, on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco as Marc Canter wrote about and elsewhere, I am pleased they are free. Maybe one of them is someone's Corot.

P.S. The fourposter was too tall for the bedroom ceiling and so languished in the garage until flooded...which is another story.

I know that by rescuing Corot from the pet shop prison others were ordered to replace him. We must stop this pet trade and the breeding of animals for pets.

France launches radical green tax on bigger cars - Scheme rewards drivers who opt for small vehicles

Jon Henley in Paris The Guardian

French drivers who favour large, gas-guzzling cars will have to pay up to €3,500 (£2,300) more for a new model from next January under a radical green road tax scheme unveiled by the environment ministry.

Part of a new environment bill aimed at cutting air, water and soil pollution over the next five years, the scheme will also reward drivers who opt for smaller, cleaner vehicles with payouts of up to €700.

Last month the mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, described 4x4 vehicles as "bad for London - completely unnecessary" and their owners as "complete idiots".

"Central to the exhibition are one hundred large albums on which he worked all his life - a unique and extraordinary document of his times, on loan for the first time outside France. These are displayed alongside his best-known images as vintage and modern prints and his early stereoscopes that highlight Lartigue's fascination with movement."
