Trying to book hotel rooms for colleagues on the same day as the Boks play in Paris and IS Paris EVER full - nada anywhere - even the classy places are chockers! Word to the wise, if your are coming over for any of the games, get your hotel sorted out soon or you will be at the end of an RER line in the sticks...

Although I think Velolib is a great idea, the machines are pretty tricky to use....plus there are often no bikes available...seems a shame to me!

Hurrah! Paris Plage starts today! I was driving past the area last night and saw potted palm trees being installed! One could almost be mistaken for thinking this was the Med!

I would love to join a kickboxing class after being a enthusiastic member of the kickboxing society at Leeds University! I don't want to compete in matches just go to training as it is a great all round work out. Let me know if you have heard of anything!

Just wanted to say how happy I was yesterday to see two French tennis stars do so well at Wimbledon. Good luck Bartoli today against Williams!

I'm wondering about golf ettiquette (sp?) on the courses in and around Paris. It's a couple of years since I've played, but I'm wondering if you can wear shorts (and if so, can you wear short socks or do you need  long ones?), if you can wear spikes or need to wear rubber multistuds, if you replace your divots or fill the holes with sand/dirt, and so on. I fancy a round (and the vague chance of breaking a hundred) but don't want to do the Wrong Thing. Any help appreciated! (I think my clubs may be rusty - out with the wire wool...)

So anybody willing to wager an outcome? France to play Wales and Ireland to face England at Twickenham. If France beat Wales in the second of this coming Saturday's games, Ireland would have to defeat England by at least 30 points to stand a chance of taking the title. If the French lose, all Ireland would have to do is win at Twickenham, although a defeat for France would also open the door for England and Scotland. But will the English not beat the Irish ? and then by how much to cause concern for France. If England lose and both Scotland and Wales win, the English team will slip to a lowly fifth in the table. Aller le Bleu!
