Trio a la Casa++ at the Fete de la Musique -- Alex Kläser at the guitarJune 21 is “la Fete de la musique” (World Music Day, see also the corresponding wikipedia article). On this day everybody is officially allowed to make music (the only day in the year without any noise restriction!) .. simply descend your instrument, your amplification and make music. We also did this spontaneously with our “Trio a la Casa++”. We come together once in a while in my apartment and jam. It consists of Nicolas (drums) and Jean-Baptiste (double bass). The “++” indicates that we actually were more than three: Fano (saxophone), Yves (guitar), and “the neighbor” (guitar). The people seemed to be very content with our performance (about 3 hours), an improvised mix of jazz, pop, and rock. The neighbor a few floors above us joined us spontaneously through his window playing a guitar solo, than descending to join us also physically in the street. Some pictures that should give you an impression of that nice are online in the gallery .. thanks a lot to Caroline for taking theses marvelous pictures 🙂 !!!

Hey! Have you encountered flies entering your room and then flying around right in the middle of your room? I find that it is quite annoying. You too? Well, then this is truly an absolutely great trick to know. It is actually quite simple to chase them absolutely peaceably out of your room: all you need is to have one of those bigger ceiling fans. Since this fan is usually located in the middle of your room, and since it generates an air current, the flies won’t like and they simply fly away. I observed even that they usually fly away through the windows. That actually proves that flies are smart enough to know where the window is! Contrary to popular believe!

Today I had a look at the tachometer of my bicycle .. wow, it says 4007 km in total. I think I had a few hundreds of kms still left over from Germany, but the main part of it has been cycled in France. Note that I go each day to work with my bicycle (one way is about 8-9 km), now since a year, it sums up. Congratulations Alex 🙂 !

This weekend we have been the first time for this year skiing! Snow conditions were not too bad, although there were some bad parts on the tracks with smaller (and bigger) stones. This is not that nice. Appart from that it was great. Check out the photo gallery for pictures. Also have a closer look at the picture .. remember I bought a snowboard, this is the one you can see on the picture (I like yellow).
