Midnight in Griset: Last 2013 Snowfall?


Despite what is happening currently in Europe - and in my Parisien fief - our planet has 
reached during the last decade the hottest peaks in the course of more than 11,300 years.

"Of course I am 'privileged'. I live in a mansion, I have a nice car... what did I say? two, I have two cars...
a scooter - just in case. Not to mention the farmhouse in Provence, where I never go... I hate crickets!
But me, who am I?
I have no merit, no legitimacy, I am overwhelmed by the talent of my mother, the
reputation of my
grandmother and the dough of my great grandmother!"

Plumbery Party in Griset.

It has been a week full of anxiety, commotion
and anger,
in Griset, but it all came to a happy
end today
with a "plumbery party" !

Last week, the heater in the bathroom began
to grumble and scream for help :
"I'm too hot, I feel faint, I want to pee and
I'll make a holy mess
if nobody cares for me".

It was critical.

So I gathered a dozen specialists and we formed a committee of inquiry around a
few bottles of Burgundy wine (Volnay) and some appetizers,
in a warm and friendly

After we deliberated, we went to the action : the heating temperature was reduced
and the security group changed.

The night was young, when we broke up, staggering but proud of the accomplished
work. We all agreed with enthusiasm to meet again in a few days -
same bathroom/
same time,
to ease the heater's tank from a few pounds of limestone.
The heater also agreed.


... and one week later :

June 30th eve... Sophie Perrimond acts in Griset

Sophie Perrimond à Griset
avec les lettres de Calamity Jane à sa fille
(extrait vidéo)

Le 8 mai 1941, sur les ondes de la radio CBS, Madame Jean McCormick déclare être la fille cachée de Calamity Jane. En guise de preuves, elle avance des lettres confessions rédigées par sa mère. Une correspondance sensible et intime écrite entre 1877 et 1902, que sa fille ne devait lire qu’après sa mort... (+)

En 1873, Calamity Jane, 21 ans, donne naissance à sa fille, suite à sa rencontre avec une autre légende de l'Ouest du nom de Wild Bill Hickock. Son style de vie ne lui permettant pas de l'éduquer correctement, elle décide de la confier à un couple sans enfant. Très vite, elle souffre cruellement de l'absence de sa fille et ressent un besoin urgent de communiquer avec elle... (+)

25 juillet 1893 ... "Je fabrique des recettes et les essaye sur ces hors-la-loi d'en face. Je vais d'abord te donner mon gâteau de 20 ans".

25 oeufs battus à part, 2 livres 1/2 de sucre, 2 livres 1/2 de farine, 2 livres 1/2 de beurre, 7 livres 1/2 de raisin secs égrugés, 1 livre 1/2 de citrons coupés très fins, 5 livres de groseilles, 1 pinte d'eau-de-vie, 1/4 d'once de clous de girofle, 1/2 once de cannelle, 2 onces de fleur de muscade, 2 onces de noix de muscade, 2 cuillères à thé de levure de bière, ou 2 cuillères à thé de bicarbonate de soude et 3 de crème de tartre.

Cette représentation était la dernière de la saison, mais dès la rentrée vous pouvez aussi inviter le spectacle chez-vous... le vendredi ou samedi soir, ou le dimanche en matinée. (voir) Contactez Pauline Rocafull, chargée de diffusion, au 06 98 93 94 96 - theatredesroches@yahoo.fr

(Commentaire de G@ttoGiallo : Le gâteau, qu'on déguste après le spectacle, est un vrai délice dans la lignée du Xmas cake).

One more movie set in Griset...

Chouette alors, on installe un tramway pour les riverains ?
Une navette privée pour atteindre l'incontournable 96
et nous rapprocher de notre épicier favori, Hamid...

Ben, non... ce n'est qu'un énième tournage dans notre fief.

But which movie ? I have to ask Cricri.
