Benny on da move!

This utterly delightful young man sported these socks & shirt at Old Navy, where he was helping me.  The nicest guy!  His school had held a Socks Day.  He told me that he had also had on a pair of big glasses, but that the school authorities made him take them off.  I imagine cats' eyes, or harlequins, something along those lines.  I like to think that he is giving the Cub Scout salute.  Snaps and shout out to you, Benny!

When new is not better

Our used-to-be favorite cafe in Montparnasse was very proud of its 70s revival makeover.  Too much for jet-lagged eyes first thing in the morning.

Japanese restaurant, shiny table

Lotsa drafts, which I appreciate, believe me, but nothing moving along.  Like having bowls of bread dough rising, nothing ready to bake.

Don't you love food photos...

The real deal:  chocolate-almond macarons, nearly as good as the ones in Paris.  Go to,-by-helen-mcsweeney,-of-tartelette.html

to see how.  Can't possibly bake them in this hot weather, though.
