My French Takeaway…

Posted in 1 with tags , , , , on March 28, 2008 by dancorrigan

Amazing what you find in a remote part of France…

I’ve been here for the past week, and it’s quiet, which is great for me. No one disturbs a geeky brit, wandering around in the undergrowth in the country.

All this in contrast to the activity on the other side of the pond. The French aren’t particularly bothered about the so called Entente Formidable. Sarkozy and his lovely lady are wowing the press in the UK, over here they are more conservative in their approach. I doubt whether they’ll ever forgive him for getting divorced.

A little bird tells me that there’s Snow in London. It’s almost unbelievable that this is happening – Snow and Sarkozy in the UK at the same time? I am sure they are probably meeting th same people!

Working outdoors, pays off! A little dig here, turn a stone there and presto! This will keep me going for a long time yet.

To the winner, go the spoils…

Spent the day wandering around Kensington. Made it to the Andipa Gallery to see the Banksy exihibit. This would be an ideal way to manage some assets of SR – but I think they are too old skool to understand.

I’m calling in help from associates in other regions, working in the same area as me. It may be the best and fastest way to handle this.

Daylight please…

Being in the Big Smoke brings the reality of city life crashing down on you like a ton of bricks. I tried getting to IWM, but ran out of time – work commitments drain every little second of free time. I must sort out my “work – life” balance.

I am in town early, and will try again. I need to see the timepiece in daylight – as close to 4pm, as possible. Only then will I be able to check the alignment. I may even post pictures to illustrate the fact.

Back to work, before I am sprung.

Another day, one more dollar! Back in London after an interesting trip. It’s more like archeology, just that I am assessing risks.

Should be able to make the IWM today, as I’ll be in Central London. If I have a moment to spare and am in time, I’ll have a good look at that timepiece, just the frigin sun isn’t out today.

Damn British weather…
