I absolutely never have heard anyone say "Chapelure!"  :lol:
It's a brilliant interjection, by the way. I think I'll use it know  ;)
I'm curious to know which word you tried to translate?

Just 48 hours in France, and he looks already smarter  :lol:

Anyway, he's officially on his way to his roman vacation.

I was aiming for "Crumbs!" (apparently the French for "crikey" is "crikey"), and the best Google Translate could offer was Chapelure as a translation of "breadcrumbs".

I once worked with an LD* who'd come out with old-fashioned English exclamations translated into pidgin French.
For instance:
  • Ciel Ó Betsy! (Heavens to Betsy)
  • Frapper une allumette! (Strike a light)
    And my favourite, which I still use today:
  • Lapider les corbeaux! (Stone the crows)

Excellent! I'll update the map.

Dang, I kinda hoped the Banana would arrive here in Germany just in time for this festival: http://www.progressive-promotion-records.com/bands.html
Would've gotten the bands to sign the Banana with a message for Jem - but now it seems it'll arrive much earlier... So on to Plan B...
Keep prog alive - see it live!

Well, you never know, the speed this thing moves sometimes.... ;)
I guess Plan A Paragraph 2 could be that you take a suitable picture of the banana and get the bands to sign that?

After seeing David's picture I realised I forgot to remove the cord I used to tie the banana* to my kit before I shipped it... Oh well! It's a souvenir to take home to all the wee bananas... Great photo, David! Nice to see the frosty fruit getting some french sun rays. 8-)

I wonder if we can complete the trip in time for the AGM gig on December 16th?

You think you own me
You miss the point completely
These things I do they\'re not for you

Leave me alone...
