This morning, Yann presented me with the largest, most beautiful bouquet for our wedding anniversary.

Oil Rides Into 2022 on Bullish Wave as Demand Fears Fade - Bloomberg

Oil Rides Into 2022 on Bullish Wave as Demand Fears Fade - Bloomberg Oil has started off 2022 with a bang.

Well, here it is again. That enduring symbol of Paris and, of course, of France: la tour Eiffel (the Eiffel Tower). It's difficult, if not impossible, to be in Paris and not catch a glimpse. I don't know how many photos I've taken of it over the decades. This one is from somewhere* in the 15th Arrondissement, just south and a little west of the tower, not far from the river.
