These all sound interesting. The last one has peaked my interest.

Oh I'm happy to find your blog. Signed up for your feed. I will never be able to get through all those books though! You look very French in your photo - I've never managed to completely pull that one off. Something big and galumping about me that no matter how many years I spend in France will not be tamed. Oh well! Looking forward to your posts.

Dedene,
The last one looks interesting, but I think it's the patisserie one that catches my attention most!lol

Kim, Thanks for stopping by; glad you signed up for the feed. And as for me looking French, hmm, not sure about that one, as I sit here in my sweats!lol I'm sure galumping is a bit harsh....:-)
