True... nothing like rationality to drive the other person mad!

The President's Hat by Antoine Laurain

I've posted about another book by this author before – The Red Notebook.  This book, The President's Hat, is also quite delightful – almost magical.  Well worth a read and don't be put off by the fact that it is a translated work – the President in question being the French President.

This is a charming fable about the impact a felt hat has on the various people that happen to find it and wear it.  Totally unbelievable but nothwithstanding that it is very whimsical and very enlightening about French culture and ways of thinking.

It's a short book so you can embark on it without using up too much time.

Food on Friday: Cherries & Almonds


Cherries are in season at Christmas time here which is just wonderful.  This week's theme has 2 ingredients – cherries and almonds – any dish that uses one or both of them will be most welcome.

To add your dishes, just put the name of the dish together with your blog name/name into the first Mr Linky box you will find below.  Then paste the url for your post about it into the second box.

I'll be pinning the dishes to this Pinboard which will make it easy for you to check them out at a glance.  The links from the earlier collections are also on that board.

Cheers for Cherries!
