Aah, it is great to be home after a break away in Toulon in France. This country is wonderful and very civilised. People are friendly and the food is amazing. Cathy and I loved our stay here and are sorry to be heading back to London. Toulon has to be seen to be believed, and has everything for all couples or families to enjoy there. Check out this video for more info on the beautiful Area of Toulon and Marseille.

The band ABBA are taking action against the Danish far Right party for using one of their famous songs "Mama Mia" and changing it for political purposes  - over to "Mama Pia", and the musicians Benny Anderson and Bjorn Ulvaeus are not impressed. The Swedish band members are not impressed with the Danish for ripping off their music. The Danish People's Party has its roots in the Neo Nazi party in that country. Wow, what am I to think here!

And in the UK, the Labour Party - not back in opposition after leading the UK for the last 11 years - has got itself a new party leader. Ed Milliband has succeeded Gordon Brown,  who was previously very unpopular with the party, and it will be interesting to see how the rank outsider Ed will perform. His older Brother David Milliband who was a Foreign Secretary under Brown used to joke that young Ed used to have to introduce himself as "The Other Milliband". Now Dave will have to use that title himself as Ed takes all the limelight. Power can be a real bitch, can't it? Heh!!! And it's Sunday! Meanwhile I have a press chock full of amazing french food here and a supply of French Coffee to last me into 2011 at least! Bon jour! :D

(The Markets in Toulon provide great shopping here, and food are fresh and always good!)
