Off to France

I'm off to France tonight for a week. Julia is giving a paper and receiving a prize at the Business History Conference in Le Creusot. I'm tagging along as "spouse of academic" and hope to imbibe enough good wine to counteract the French Marxists that we've been warned to expect at the conference. (Brad A. and Mike F., I'll try to have a report for you on your "brethren" over there.)

After the conference, we're heading to Switzerland for a couple of days of relaxation on Lake Geneva.

Blogging will be light.

Les francais ne sont pas mes freres. Je me souviens que al commencement de la guerre en Iraq je n'ai pas bu vin francais pour seis mois. Je sais qu'il te plait a escrire que je suis un communiste, mais j'etais en favor de la guerre jusqu'a j'ai venu a savoir l'etendue des mensonges de notre president.

Bon voyage. J'attend avec impatience le vignoble de Martha.

And yes, it's been a long time, so pardon my butchering of the language. I wish I had such an excuse for my English.
