…Rêver

  Bonjour, tout le monde. Aujourd’ hui, je suis ecrivez en Francais parce que c’est la Fête Nationale de France. Hello to all my English speaking crusaders. Just to catch you up, today is la Fête Nationale, le quatorze juillet, or as you probably know it, Bastille Day. To put it another way, it’s the…

…run the clock down

We’re nearly there, crusaders, mere hours stand between you and your 2019 resolutions.
