Joyeux Noël????

D'habitude je suis comme un gosse lorsqu'il va neiger, mais là...NON! C'est trop tout de même. Nous ne sommes que le 24 septembre.

Même Zoe est restée au lit ce matin!

France's Presidential Elections

The 1st round of the presidential elections is over. It certainly has been one of the most exciting elections since 1965 when the Suffrage Universel was established. It also got the highest participation rate (over 84%). Nicolas Sarkozy and Ségolène Royal made the cut among 12 candidates. It is time to end the small party tradition. Bové (l'altermondialiste), the man who blows up Mc Donald's and who will be going to jail soon, Laguillier who has been running for decades for the commnunist party and hasn't made it above the 6% once, Le Pen whose racist ideologies scared us in 2002, need to go and they will. We are in 2007! I still think that having more than 2 candidates is an interesting concept but let's limit it to 5 max! Sarkozy received over 31% and Royal over 25%. France will have a new president on May 6th at 12 noon (MST). After 12 years of Chiracist leadership, we are ready for a change. Hopefully a good one! Allez Sarko!

PS: Meredith thinks that Royal won't win until she gets bangs. Let's just say that she just won't win period and that "Ensemble, tout devient possible" (

Christian's mission call!

Chris opened his call last night and thank goodness we were all sitting down! He is going to the Singapore mission. His mission includes Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Burnei, Bengladesh and Pakistan. He reports to the MTC on July 11th. We were all set on South America since the whole family speaks spanish...but the Lord works in mysterious ways. We are so proud of him. Chris turns 19 on friday!

French Excellence in Very High Speed Rail: Record 2007

574,8 Km/h (357,16 miles/hour)! Check out the video to watch the world record.

Not only do we have good cheese and bread, but you'll have to admit that our public transportation is pretty good as well...when they are not on strike!

The funniest joke EVER!

THE joke of the century made it into the New York Times yesterday. I used to tell this joke over and over again a few years ago. I told it so many times that I wonder if I should be able to claim "droits d'auteur" (Copyright that is)!!!!! What do you think? If you don't think it's funny, you'll just have to call me and I will tell you the joke over the phone...for the small amount of $9.99 ONLY. But wait, for that price, you will also receive a second joke (the Apricot joke). But wait, if you call within an hour, you will receive my picture autographed. Ok, enough. Here's the link.

March 20th is International Francophone Day

It is time to get your bérets and your baguettes out of the attic! We are celebrating the International Francophone Day on March 20th. The events in the US are quasi nonexistent, so please do something even if it is eating a hot dog with French's mustard on it, or French vanilla icecream, or French toasts. How about making crepes! That's an easy one. But for all French bread lovers (that's about 99.9% of the world population), here is one of the best French bread recipe. It was given to us by Jane Bryner and my mother-in-law has been making it almost every day for the last 2 months. I promise you that you will not regret it and it takes almost no time.
Click here for the recipe.
A bientôt...

It was in the fall of 2002 that I applied to BYU. Over 4 years ago and here I am, almost done... I wanted to come to BYU so badly. Since then, I have probably taken it for granted many times. And so this post will stay to remind myself and some of you that this place was such a beauty. I'll miss it with all that comes with it.

I am Bill Clinton

After reading my wife's blog on finding out who you are through silly tests, I decided to take the "What famous leader are you?"
Well, here's the answer...and that's just very unfortunate! Does that mean that Meredith should be Hilary Clinton?

Do I smell?

Why is it that almost every other conversation that I'll start with someone I have never met before will end up as a culinary discussion on where to find the best cheese in town, or how to slice this cheese, etc. Do people really think that all we eat in France is cheese? What about Foie Gras? Well, I better not go there because Meredith will tell you her memorable Christmas meals with the in-laws...and that could last for a while! And I usually get upset because Foie Gras IS great! No matter what those American chefs tell you. Who eats at those french-wannabe places? Actually, Mer and I tried a café in NYC by Columbia University. Pretty good but it seems like they try to over-french everything and that makes me feel like I am at the EPCOT center in Disneyworld. That was cool when I was 15. Not anynore. For this reason and many more actually, I would recommend that you just go to France and pick a 1-star restaurant. OK, this is not on everyones calendar for 2007, but if you ever make it there, try it. Avoid the cheap touristy traps. They are just gross. Eat baguette and cheese for a couple days (add some fruits and veggies please) and save for a 1-star restaurant. You will love the experience. As for which one, ask me when you go. And I'm sure that they'll serve you really good...cheese. Well, I guess I even have cheese conversation with myself now! How pathetic! Don't even get me started. I really should have gone to cooking school or perhaps cheese school. Too bad they don't exist. How about I just start my own cheese school. I'll call it Prévôt, fromages, and co. Anyway, here's a list of good cheese that you will definately find in NY or in CA. As for SLC, you'll just have to stick to the already-grated-processed-packaged-fluorescent-cheddar-so-called-cheese! And how about that cheese wheez?

1. Saint Agur (my top favorite)
2. Chèvre
3. Gruyère (or Comté for Mer. That's the upscale swiss cheese)
4. Brie (creamier than a camembert)
5. Boursin (they sell it at COSTCO, run!)

(Those cheeses aren't in order of preferences except for #1)

PS: What do you think about the title of my blog?

A title for my blog

Welcome! Bienvenue!
First of all, I need to tell you that I LOVE cheese! Being French would be the clue and so I decided to give my blog this title since life can only really be enjoyed one cheese at a time (a day!). 'Til I have something more profound to say...cheers (or should I say cheese?)

Coming up: How to make your own Camembert!
