A bird on the street called Swallow Street in English. I used to see these all around Paris but haven’t recently. The artist puts plaster over his face to make these. We found Napoleon on Rue Bonaparte. A photo of some poinsettias in my apartment looking pretty in the s...

Take a Last Glimpse at a Nightmare Year for the World Economy - Bloomberg

Take a Last Glimpse at a Nightmare Year for the World Economy - Bloomberg For the global economy, 2020 is ending with a sense of hope for the future, partly built on the assumption that it can’t surely be that bad again.Such optimism is also founded on the rollout of vaccines to control the coronavirus pandemic.

I left the market and drove up to Super U to see if they had mussels, but they didn't either. So, no mussels for us this New Year's Eve. No worries. I got some...
