I have been roped into cooking Christmas dinner for my French parents in law and the dad in particular is very fussy and only likes "French" food. He has already warned me he won't eat turkey but I wanted to give them a taste of the traditional Englsih Christmas dinner. I find it so delicious! What can I do?

Yesterday I found a rat in a bin next to my house. Should I be very alarmed by this? Does this mean the area is infested or could it be a lone rat? To tell the truth I am a little concerned. fred

My parents are finally visiting for the holidays and I am inspired to find a live tree. Do "cut-your-own" tree farms exist within driving distance to Paris? If not, any ideas on the best place to find a live tree?Thanks.
