- In 1974, I. fell with her baby in her arms and was treated for an ankle’s sprain.

  • To treat / to cure

- Before a film/a movie is officially released, one can watch the trailer.
- C. succeeded in speaking for a long time about the film they saw in VO in Leognan last week.
- H. said that for him the film « The way » was not really about hiking but rather a sort of « huis-clos » with a story between four different characters having different personal problems.
- Helene from Ann Arbor sent us several mail messages in English : we’ll speak about it next time. The beauty of the movie, in fact, is that Mr. Estevez does not make explicit what any of them find, beyond friendship.

- We are supposed to speak in turn (one after the other), so that we have to be as sly as a fox if we want to avoid our turn.

  • Cliché : You have to be cunning as a fox to outwit me = smart and clever.
  • Crafty : skilled in deception.

- We got our cards as members of the mpt association ; we spoke about Leo Lagrange and « popular education »
In 1936 (Léon Blum) he was under-secretary of State for Sport and given responsibility for the organisation of Leisure, under the authority of the Minister for Public Health.

- We had a very interesting conversation about the women’s lib movement for Basque dancing, and the way Basque dancers are dressed up in white, red and green.
- A. told us that the Basque flag is made of three crosses like the UK flag ;
of course we spoke about Basque cuisine as well. A. puts green and red elements in her salads just for them to look better, with red tomatoes and green Espelette peppers for instance.
- Some of us have burning memories of chili : Yogurt is the only fire-estinguisher for chili !
Chili pepper, the spicy fruit of plants in the genus Capsicum ; derived products :

  • Chili powder, dried, ground red chili peppers, sometimes with cumin and other spices ;
  • Chili sauce, spicy sauce made primarily from chili powder and/or chopped fresh chili peppers, often with additional spices and other ingredients such as sugar and vinegar ; examples include enchilada sauce, Szechuan sauce and bottled hot sauces ;
  • Chili con carne, a stew with a chili sauce (usually red) base ;
  • Chile con queso, a cheese sauce or dip with chopped chiles (usually green).

We started some research about William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement inspired by John Ruskin.
A series of Essays published in 1893 by Morris or Walter Crane can be read here.
