  3. The Ant & the Grasshopper

    Classic Version

    The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he’s a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold.

    Modern Version

    The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks he’s a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

    Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. BBC, ITV and Sky show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. Britain is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can it be that, in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

    Then a representative of the NAAGB (National Association of Green Bugs) shows up on ‘Newsnight’ and charges the ant with “green bias,” and makes the case that the grasshopper is the victim of 30 million years of greenism. Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper, and everybody cries when he sings “It’s Not Easy Being Green.” Tony and Cherie Blair make a special guest appearance on the BBC Evening News to tell a concerned interviewer that they will do everything they can for the grasshopper who has been denied the prosperity he deserves by those who benefited unfairly during the Thatcher summers.

    Gordon Brown exclaims in an interview with Jonathan Dimbleby that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and calls for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his “fair share.” Finally, the EU drafts the “Economic Equity and Anti-Greenism Act” retrospective to the beginning of the summer.

    The ant fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government. Cherie gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a defamation suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of judges that Tony appointed from a list of single-parent welfare moms who can only hear cases on Thursday’s between 1:30 and 3pm when there are no talk shows scheduled. The ant loses the case.

    The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he’s in, which just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around him since he doesn’t know how to maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow. And on the TV, which the grasshopper bought by selling most of the ant’s food, they are showing Tony Blair standing before a wildly applauding group of New Labourites announcing that a new era of “fairness” has dawned in Britain.
  4. Hello

    I have looked at this website and like the shots taken but they are all taken in a studio enviroment which is very differant to a wedding situation.  Most of the images on this website would have been digitally changed and edited to create this modern mood.  With a wedding, the photographer will only have so many chances to get a perfect shot, and working with groups of people can be quite difficult doing the right thing at the right time.  Have you looked for the advertisements in the back of the French wedding mags, perhaps you will see some photographers websites and then you can investigate their work further.  I wish you luck with your search.

  5. I have seen these nets in leclerc so i think I will purchase one when i'm in there next, but the lake isn't very deep so do you think I should suspend the net from a stick on the ground or something similar?........Also is it necessary to have the fishing licence because my house sits at the edge of lake, as do a few other houses but it is a private lake only for the use of the people living here.  However our little lake is fed from a much larger lake 'lac hourtin carcans' in the Blue Medoc so i'm not sure if this rule applies, and could possibly be why my neighbours are out there at night with torches!!!!!

    As you can all probably tell this fishing business is completely new for both of us, and as I don't even eat seafood or any type of fish i've quite surprised myself by getting involved with OH's efforts.  I will try liver and the sardine, but can i put a sardine from a tin in the net or would i need to buy from the fish shop?

    All of this is so helpful, thank you all so much............T

  6. Hi, Can anyone please tell me how to make a crayfish net trap thing.  I've seen one that my neighbours have which looks about the size of a pillow and has a flat bottom and an arched top, but they're in Paris now so i can't investigate further.  My oh has made some sort of bendy garden fencing contraption which is nothing like the neighbours, and is trying to entice them in with some fish flavoured catfood wrapped in my popsock!!!!!!...........after two days he has caught only the one! but i think this is partially to do with the hole opening which is only about the size of a top of a mug...........Also i've seen my neighbours go out at night with torches, now i'm not sure if this is to help them see in the dark but having investigated on the net i'm now thinking this is something to do with catching the crayfish but it didn't explain why.  One last question before i drive you all mad, what do they like eating, as they don't seem very keen on Whiskers.  Any pics of nets etc would be fab.  Thanks
  7. I'm over in the Medoc and just before last months school holiday, half of the the playground was out of bounds for the children, as the school is surrounded by pine tree's.  I had no idea how dangerous these caterpillars are, but during the holiday the workers went in and dealt with them and also had to change all the sand in the play area as well.  Now I know what to look for and the furry bundles in the trees, which do seem to be very high we will all be avoiding them!  Thanks for all the previous info.

    climbing rose

    I have 4 suggestions for you.

    Felicite Perpetue............creamy white flowers, semi evergreen, performs best with minimal pruning and tolerates poorer soils and light shade and may be grown on a north facing wall.

    Mme Alfred Carriere..........milky white flowers, very hardy, reliable and tolerant of a north wall, though blooms less freely.

    New Dawn..........Pearly pink flowers and tolerates a north wall.

    Zephirine Drouhin............deep cerise flowers, prone to mildew but risk is reduced on a west and north wall, where it can thrive.

    I'm no rose expert though, i've just looked in my book!............but you can check them out on the internet to find further info i'm sure. Happy Gardening

  9. The Plant thing,

    I moved here two years ago with 80 large potted plants, all companies that quoted which totaled about 6 said it wouldn't be a problem, just the amount of space they would take up on the lorry etc.  I know a few years ago it wasn't possible, but now all is fine from what I understand.  By the way I used a guy off 'ebay' as he quoted far less than other companies for the move and he was complete rubbish and loads of stuff got broken.  I think its a gamble and really all down to the guys doing the move, you can either be extremely lucky or very unlucky.  Besides that, alot of the guys doing the removals work for differant companies depending on what day of the week it is, who has business, and who wants to travel down to France or beyond etc.  I've moved 28 times during the last 20 years and have always used professional companies, but i've never found that the more you spend the better service you recieve, its all been down to luck and alot of finger crossing.

  10. I just really want to know if its covered at any point in class and was really very very surprised to find my friends daughter at 14 hadn't had any education on this subject via the school.  I don't have any problems discussing this with my own daughter but had always just assumed it would be also covered at school. In the UK  I know this would have been part of the curriculum, but here i'm not sure hence my need to ask someone who may know or is it left until the children are older?  I'm not one of those parents either who leave everything to the school and thus it doesnt' get discussed at home, in fact its quite the reverse, but at 14 surely some basic reproduction should be covered at school?
  11. I wondered what age or what year the children are in france when this subject is first introduced in their schooling.  My own daughter is 11 and it hasnt been covered but my friends daughter is 14 and this subject still hasn't been covered.  I don't know if there is a specific year when it has to be taught or just that the teachers don't want to cover this issue.  Can someone advise what should be happening for me please.
  12. Has anyone tried one of these things, i'm curious to know if they work or not.  I've found loads of info about them on the net, but can't seem to find any real people reviews etc.  So if you've tried one or have one, let me know how its going please.

    I have two young magnolia's (trees' i thought) in the garden that i brought here with me from the UK.  They are both about 4 years old.  One of them has just flowered whilst the other is still in bud, but neither of them have any leaves.  People across the road have a magnolia with leaves but no flowers.  There are plenty i've seen around here that have both but I have no idea if this is normal in a young plant (tree)?..........do i need to do something to the soil, or change its position or just give up completely with this thing that just looks like a twig at all other times of the year.


  15. The most selfish present I have ever recieved as a birthday gift was from my husband.  It was so large it couldn't be wrapped and I had to step outside to see it wearing a blind fold, you can imagine i'm sure what i would have liked to have seen.  Instead to my horror I was greeted by a scaffolding tower and a pair of decorating overalls!!!!!....................needless to say he is now my ex!Woot!
