Does the world implode if I add the Not Google Plus video to Google Plus?

let's see ....

of course, you're NOT enjoying it as you are not here, ... and neither am I. However, I'mnot nearly as popular on the Not Google Plus and I get a LOT fewer +1s, shares and general positive endorsements, so expect me back here soon.

(there's no preview for some reason, but click on the link for a fun video)

I understand from all the press coverage that the Chinese travel market is big and very important. I also understand that due to UK visa controls the European destinations for Chinese visitors are likely to be Paris, Rome etc - so can anyone help me give a good reason for a Chinese traveller to visit Languedoc (OK we have the best beaches, scenery etc etc etc) - or even more specifically to stay at our Guest House http://villaroquette.com

I have started putting links on in Chinese....

Sitting here in the heart of the South of France, it is impossible for me to remotely comprehend the feelings of people living in the troubled areas of the UK. The news in France leads with details of the destruction, looting and violence - I scan the Internet for information and find this sadness is broadcast almost everywhere in the world.

I left the UK over 20 years ago because I was looking for a place where I could build a life and make a good home for my young family. We had very little money, I was earning my living by travelling and selling goods and services anywhere I could. My plan was to settle and teach photography through courses and workshops, this is still my aim.

Having decided to quit the UK, we had many choices, France was the most convenient, I spent a month with a rail pass often asking at a ticket office "What time is the next train?" - being asked "To where?" I would reply "Anywhere" - I got a lot a lot of funny looks, but I discovered many places - so we came, our children have grown up here.

My reason for leaving was simple. I had seen the standard of education in the UK decline and society being divided by distorted values. France is far from perfect, but, for us, in a small village near the Mediterranean I believe we have offered our three children a better grasp of family values, civic pride and a much better education than we could have done in the UK.

What can I do to help? Perhaps by us offering a miniscule oasis of calm, a small retreat in rural France, others can stay with us and gain a fresh focus to share when they return to their homes. I wish I could do more.

Writers: one of the best ways to improve your writing is to keep a journal, and to write in it daily. It works as do Czerny studies for pianists, keeping you flexible and practiced. Also, private writing will lessen your urge to infuse your public writing with your own personal machinations. By focusing your journal on yourself, you can better focus your writing on your reader.
