Red Rock

Uluru is the most remarkable rich red ochre colour.

French Expressions: Un coup pour rien = a waste of time. Ça vaut le coup = it's worth it.

A la cuisine hier: Onglet (skirt steak) marinated in honey, soy, garlic, ginger and a  soupçon of chilli and grilled, served with buttered steamed new potatoes and green peas.

Nouvelles mondaine: We were saddened (ahem...) to see that our favourite bimbo télévisuelle, as she was described in the Nouvelle République, apparently without rancour, has eschewed the charms of the Loire chateaux and has married in Kenya (sorry -- some sort of Freudian slip there -- they got married in Florence).

  3. My French (Belgian?) teacher taught us "Ce ne vaut pas la peine" for "it's not worth it", A bit more formal, I think. P.

  4. Jean: Kim Kardashian.

    C&E: Me neither actually. We loved the fact that the NR felt they had to explain who she was and the term they chose was just brilliant.

    PG: Yes, I say that too.

  5. Well, a lot of people at Rigny-Ussé got some extra overtime money, it was a credible diversion, they'll be divorced before three years is up, who's complaining? Possibly the NR, for buying the story hook line and sinker!
