It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

The Escargot Caper!

August 11th, 2008 · By Lynn

The first time Katia ate snails was on her 3rd birthday when Patrick and I took her to a French restaurant.  She looked at the plate and asked us, “What are they?” I made a fist and stuck up my first two fingers bent like the tentacles of a snail and slowly moved my hand.  […]

08-08-08 Wedding Date Bliss Or Miss?

August 9th, 2008 · By Lynn

Not as many people got married yesterday as they did a year ago on 07-07-07!  Yet, those who did, will be happy to know that according to Chinese numerologists 8-8-8 is a very lucky combination.  The number 8 means wealth and prosperity and apparently the word “eight” sounds like “to get rich” in Mandarin. The […]

Matt Is Back!

August 7th, 2008 · By Lynn

No, I’m not talking about Matt Lauer in “Where in the World is Matt Lauer“, I’m talking about Matt Harding! Talk about destiny!  Matt is back from another worldwide trip dancing his way through seven continents in his famous “Where the Hell is Matt” series!  Who would have thought when he first videotaped himself dancing, that […]

A Slight Generation Gap!

August 6th, 2008 · By Lynn

Things change yet remain the same.  When I first arrived in Paris in 1971, I was amazed by the way the French would speak about the war (WWII) as though it had happened yesterday!  It would come up in daily conversations over and over; a remark here, or a reminder there, but for me it […]

Bush to Beijing – But No Dalai Lama to Lhasa

August 5th, 2008 · By Lynn

President Bush is on his way to the opening ceremonies of this year’s Olympics, why am I not surprised!?  Afterall, George W. sure likes a hoedown, and what bigger hoedown than the opening of the Olympic Games!?  But!  What about the Dalai Lama?  When will he be able to end his nearly half a century […]

Is The Party Over?

August 5th, 2008 · By Lynn

With both McCain and Obama talking about the price of gas, oil, off shore drilling, energy conservation, etc., Americans realize that the party may soon be over and life as we once knew it can no longer be maintained! If you’re like me, however, and have spent half your life living in Europe, you get use […]

This Is No Game – Free Tibet!

August 3rd, 2008 · By Lynn

With the Olympic Games starting in less than a week, the eyes of the world will be on China, but what about Tibet?!  No one has stopped the Chinese government from giving its financial support to the Sudanese government in their ethnic cleansing  and the genocide taking place in Darfur.  Will no country stand up to […]
