Earthly Powers

We're in Wales for the next few days, so I've drafted a few short blogs which can be posted automatically each day in my absence.

For a change, I thought each of these short postings could consist of a photograph of something French followed by a list of my favourite something or others.

Here is a very charming HO scale card model of a French metro carriage.
