Je Suis Paris

First of all a very large sorry for not “blogging” for so long but we were in the process of moving to France. After the various trials and tribulations we finally have most of our furniture and our computer is installed in our new home. More on the move and I hope helpful hints to future movers in our next blog.

However, the tragedy of the crimes committed in Paris is of course the overriding concern to people of various nationalities and religions across France.

This sort of tragedy happens so often around the world, and it’s terrible.
