    @William – it is, isn’t it?
    @Sharon – every French home used to have them but they’ve been superceded by the micro-wave!
    @Denton – that’s why my (Australian) mother never had one: she was too afraid of accidents!
    @Susan – that’s probably one of the frist things I heard about Blois
    @Stuart – ah ha! I’ll let you keep imagining my devotion to photography until you find the vantage point in Blois from which I took the photo
    @Bergon – oui, mais comme j’ai dit à Sharon, le micro-onde semble l’avoir remplacée …
    @Rob – For the French, cuisine is probably the most important thing in the world!
    @Lauren – Oh, I’m delighted!
