There has been a little vandalism to some of the photos!
These all come down the day after the vote.

Then as part of the history group I am on the archive committee. We are defining the criteria for the archive list. There are a lot of photos, documents pulled from the archives, old post cards.....and the list and the items need to be tied together. I am looking a little at Microsoft Access. On the club computer I have it in french!!! So I downloaded a 60 day trial in english to work. Any Access expert out there willing to give me free advise? Just thought I would ask.

I came back on the train on Friday, and Keith returned via bike and train on Saturday. He had planned on more time out camping, but the winds on Saturday of plus 100km were a little too much. He had a good day on Friday, 120km. And Saturday another 75km before giving up and hopping on a train home.
On Sunday, a colleague of Keith's stopped by to say hello. I was leaving to go to Messanges and hopefully for a nice walk. Keith and Tom decided to join us. We walked for about 2 hours looking at plants, flowers, trees and a ancient borne (stone property marker). I goofed up with my camera, therefore no photos from our nice walk!
Keith went off to Bligny this morning, May 1st. It is a holiday here in France ( workers day), so almost everything is closed. There had been a brush fire or something (Keith did not have the details) and the track needs to be fixed. So there was a call for everyone to come today and help. Hope it is not too serious.
I will sign off here for the month of April.
