About the site – and me


1 year in Ireland, (that was easy) 7 years in Andorra (ever try to learn Catalan???) and 8 years in France gives a unique and, sometimes confused/confusing outlook on the world.

From learning about French paperwork (exhausting) to French chickens (of course they come with feet, Duh!) it’s a constant, often / usually entertaining challenge.

And, of course, there’s the food: some eat to live; we live to eat!

I mean, that’s why we’re here, after all!

And the starting point for this madness?

Minnesota/Wisconsin… Don’tcha know
