Correspondent for the Journal du Médoc
I’m often asked why I participate in the adventure that is the Journal du Médoc, and what motivates me to pick up my pen in this so sympathetic
weekly newspaper. Frankly, over the three years that I have been the local correspondent for the commune of Arsac, I’ve never posed the question
myself. I really should give a reply!..
Coronavirus masks – we play our part
I recently sold my sewing machine - following a move to a smaller flat – a machine which my grandmother had given to me as a wedding gift.
I thought I would have no further use for it, but I had been using it for such a long time that it was not easy to part with it. And now we
Never without my Attestation
Ten days ago I spoke in my blog, rather ironically, on the effects of the coronavirus. Since then the situation has deteriorated in France,
and also in Germany. Yesterday evening, and for the second time in the space of a week, the President addressed his « compatriots », his
fellow citizens. TV, and also radio, has retransmitted the 20 minutes of his speech, and we listened, sitting in our kitchen...

medium-sized, young, old, educated and non-educated dogs jump out of the cars. Tightened to their leashes, they sniff, growl, and bark...
Arrived in Médoc - A European Round Table
During the last months, we have received numerous requests from people (see our guestbook) who have recently settled in Médoc. Newcomers would like
to know how to get information that could help them participate in local activities. Their requests have made us think about what possibilities we
have as "Médoc actif" to support the newcomers...
Master of the Flocks
Last Saturday I went to see a sheepdog trial at the invitation of l’Ecole d’Oscar. It took place not far from where I live, at Fort Médoc,
last bastion on the Garonne for the protection of Bordeaux city and port. After twisting Having twisted my ankle, despite wearing trainers,
on the paving at the entrance, I arrived at a vast arena where the struggle between dogs and sheep was to take place...
