Mid Year Update

I thought I would give you a quick up date and a few requests too.

Karine and I have just finished a five part series on the Podcast. There will now be a gap of about 4 weeks as we are both going to be on holiday or otherwise busy, our holidays overlap hence the long gap.

That said it might be possible to do some guest interviews, would you like to be on the podcast? There's no formal qualifications required, I can give you some technical guidance on how to get your computer set up to be able to record your side of the conversation.

There's no formal script to follow we record the whole show in just over 30 minutes, nothing ever gets chopped out! The odd distracting noise might be removed but that is all. Therefore it normally doesn't take more than about an hour to do a recording.

If you would like to join in please contact me steve at philofaxy dot com and we will see what we can do.

Also if you have any ideas for future topics or for Karine and I to revisit previous topics comment below or contact at the address above.

As always I am also keen to welcome contributions from any of you for guest posts, readers under the spotlight (even if you have appeared before a while ago) etc.

Have a good week and again thank you for all your support.

18 May 2018

Free For All Friday - No 496

The month of May in my 'home country' of France is one of many public holidays, with there normally being four spread through the month.
  • 1 May Fete du Travail (Labour Day)
  • 8 May Fête de la victoire en Europe (VE Day)
  • Jour de l’Ascension (Thursday 6 weeks after Easter)
  • Lundi de Pentecôte (Monday 50 days after Easter)
Add in the differences to what UK has as public holidays in May 

As you can imagine my diary for May gets somewhat crowded with notes about public holidays and the changes to normally weekly routines such as dull things like bin collections and shop opening hours etc. 

Do you note down the public holidays for other countries other than the one you live in on your diary pages?

Of course it is Friday so feel free to discuss anything ring organiser.

Bon weekend !
