Eddie Mair | 10:30 UK time, Monday, 5 February 2007

their tour de France (Geddit?) with another item on the show tomorrow.

Among the snaps they've sent - here are two highlights (with Yvonne's own captions)

"Proof that French men still know the meaning of romance":

and "You can understand why so many Brits want to make a life here. We met a Birmingham couple this morning, who've just bought their dream house in the Dordogne."

    Well it does look rather beautiful. All the cobbles and the lovely fountain.

    Now my French isn't very good but does the shop front sign mean 'Artisan Ice creams' ?

    If that is the case,
    May I post a question, then,
    Instead of comments?

    "Computer says 'No'."
    I say "Would you like to see

    I like to think that
    I am a gentle person,
    But not all the time.

    What is that extraordinary item around Yvonne's neck?

    Clearly Yvonne does not read the Frog, as she would know romance is alive and well in the breast of our own Fearless Fred.

    So are the Birmingham couple going to live in the sweetie shop? No wonder it's their dream house :o)

    Re 'Big Sis' No 2

    Artisanales = Home made or Locally Made i.e. not Factory Produced (Ice cream).

    I have put in extra CAPITAL LETTERS as I have noticed that there seems a lack of them on some blogs.

    Why do you think the Blog needs caps, by the way? And would they be berets or kepis?
