The Feast of St Blaise
Jim and I enjoy this challenging day out. We usually go with our neighbour, David, but a couple of years ago we flew solo and had to communicate for ourselves as the only non-French attendees. It is pleasing to see a lot of the villagers en masse. The atmosphere is convivial and there is usually an open mike. Jim, never one to shy away from an opportunity to perform,normally gives a turn and has been learning to sing in French this year. It is always interesting to hear well known classics such as Viva Espagne and the birdie song sung in French. When trying to decide what to sing this year, it was suggested that Jim should look at translating The Lion Sleeps Tonight. We then discovered that this has been done and this 'Youtube' recording by Henri Salvador has engendered a great deal of interest.
We will be coming round later with sponsor sheets. All proceeds to go to the RSPG (Royal Society for the Prevention of Gluttony).
