Gil over at That British Woman gave a link to a great site here where you can see who would win the US election if the world could vote. It makes for fascinating reading so go over and check it out. I was particularly intrigued to see where certain votes were coming from. I must say it gave me some faith in the world at large as well (no guessing where my sympathies lie!).
I am flying off to France this evening armed with my camera and tape measure so not quite the glamorous trip the picture would suggest! All this in order to bring back further data so that we can continue with our design plans from afar. As GWE designed the roof based solely on our photos and rough measurements and the results are pretty good, we plan to carry on in the same manner. However, even though he has 3-D design software which makes great models, you cannot beat standing in the middle of the actual space to feel where items should be placed so that is my project for the next three days. That and pick up the mail, chat to the neighbours, sit down with our friends H and A for a chat and maybe even get to sample the local fare and raise a glass or two !!
Au revoir et salut mes amis!
