Hi, I'm a mother of two and have been living in France for the past 15 years. I'm looking for english speakers because I still express myself better in english and I really miss having conversations in english. I was brought up in Australia and would welcome some interesting conversation.

Hi, I'm afraid English Speakers in France is now offline. But I have started a local group (to me) for English speakers living in the Essonne. http://angloessonne.wordpress.com.

My personal blog is http://braunstonian.wordpress.com - I'd be happy to speak English with you through my blog. I'm originally from the UK but have been living over here now since 1997. :)

Regards,

John.

California semi-transplants Frank and Sharon Romero. This came about over the course of about five years, in a very nice way. Frank
and Sharon were newly married and looking for some way to mark their now shared lives. Why not a trip to France?

How do you say “Los Four” en français?
Then again, maybe some things just can’t be translated. Frank Romero is an icon of the Los Angeles art scene. “Los
Four” was a 1970s art collective consisting of Romero and fellow artists Carlos Almaraz, Beto de la Rocha and
Gilbert Lujan. Their 1974 exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art was the first show of Chicano art at a
major art institution.
Since then Romero has completed many public murals. He has shown widely in the United States and in Europe,
including “Le Demon des Anges,” which traveled to Nantes. His work is featured in numerous museum collections.
Fortunately they were able to borrow a friend’s Paris

During my visit last year I met Sharon’s “French mother,” who was delighted by the compliment. I quickly learned that the whole village
was anticipating my arrival and knew who I would be visiting. After the years I have spent hardening myself to the antipathy of Parisians
an actual, sincere welcome was a delight. >>>

New Town, New Style
(cont... from previous page)
Frank and Sharon find that their work has been changed by their new
surroundings. Sharon’s still lives have given way to riotously colorful
depictions of the surrounding countryside. Frank’s gangster cars are
now likely to be Deux Chevaux. His cityscapes are still fabulous, but
smoother. His landscapes, well, you’ll just have to go see.
See the show, see the gallery filled town; it’s all wonderful.
Photos of Sharon and Frank Romero (previous page) are by Lynn Sullivan. The
paintings are (previous page) “Deux Chevaux-rouge” by Frank Romero, and
untitled landscapes by Sharon Romero (this page and previous page).

Frank and Sharon Romero will be exhibiting at the Eglise
Saint Foy gallery, at the top of the hill in Mirmande, from
August 19 through September 13.

Petite Pâté de Pézenas
Surprising and just delicious bite sized pies! Wrapped inside a cotton reel of
crispy golden pastry is a mix of flavours including juices from the Sunday roast
and a hint of a Christmas mincemeat. Featured in Rick Stein's “French Odyssey”,
these Lord Clive Pies (Pâté de Pézenas) are served warm as a starter with a dry
white wine.
The recipe was brought to France by Lord Robert Clive (of India). Born in
Shropshire in 1725, he was convalescing in Pézenas, in the Langedoc, Where his
guests very much appreciated the pies made by his Indian servants. To thank the
town for hosting him he asked his cook to give the town's bakers the recipe.
The original recipe remains a closely guarded secret and has been handed down
through the generations.
