I'm to be found on 'Facebook' as 'Ian Mitchell' and......
I've started using "Twitter" (mr le Marquis) much more, and you can be a part of it. On all my Websites you'll find, somewhere (generally at the top of the page) "Twitter Updates"- This gives you links to click on which will take you to interesting things....Try it!

I recently reviewed Chez Mr. le Marquis du Galipot and noted that it contains one of the greatest posts that I have seen on any blog (Life in France type blogs or otherwise) ever.
A post that details someone’s true story; a post written with compassion and in a style that reminded me of some of Bruce Chatwin’s shorter pieces.
I asked the owner of Chez Mr. le Marquis du Galipot (a man who calls himself IWMPOP for some strange reason that you will have to read the review to understand) for permission to re-publish the post here and he very kindly agreed.
It doesn’t follow the same shape as most other blogs that I keep an eye on and, at first viewing, might seem hard to follow.
I liken this blog, in a way, to a second-hand bookshop where the books are piled everywhere and you have to delve a bit, in order to find the treasures.
I like second-hand bookshops and I don’t mind delving and… you know what? I somehow don’t think that Mr. le Marquis du Galipot (or iwmpop as I’ll call him from here on in – don’t worry; I’ll explain it all in a moment or two), would actually mind that description too much?
