MORNING LIST

For the end-of-year celebrations or to prepare for them, here are five trips to the seaside to recharge your batteries, to be pampered, to let go, in short to feel your best… with your eyes in the blue!

Taste the pleasures of Sète

It is “the” small town which is rising. And not only because this year we are celebrating the centenary of Georges Brassens and the 150e anniversary of the birth of Paul Valéry, two local children. Sète (Hérault) the industrialist has a lot of charm out of season, even in the frost of December. A festive atmosphere in Les Halles in the morning, where we will taste a tielle from Giulia or a platter of oysters from Bouzigues just caught. Those who are cold will take refuge at the brilliant Musée des arts modestes or at the very beautiful Musée Paul Valéry, which exhibits until December 31st the colorful canvases of Robert Combas, tributes to the famous songs of Georges Brassens.

For a breath of sea air, we choose to stay a few meters from the Lido beach, in this district of small houses born ten years ago. Magali’s villa, offered by Abritel, with its rooftop and huge bay windows, is ideal for celebrating New Years Eve with family or friends. From there, by bike, we go on the 12 km of cycle paths that run alongside the untouched beaches (in winter, no straw huts, just sand) from Sète to Marseillan, a charming little port on the Thau lagoon.

Villa in Sète (Hérault), six people, 300 meters from the beach, € 219 per night on average.

Let go (really) in Seignosse

On the beach of Seignosse (Landes), great breath of sea air guaranteed.

What if we ditch (a few days) spouse, children, uncles and cousins ​​for a retirement, a real one? The story of welcoming 2022 with a sun salutation and forgetting the worries of 2021. At the end of December, Namastrip offers an escape to Seignosse, between the pine forests, the lake and the ocean, in the heart of the Landes.

On the program, hatha yoga, Himalayan Kundalini, breathing techniques, but also sound drum bathing, intuitive dance or meditative walk under the pines. Yes, you will have to come without prejudice and accept to let go … But the scenery should help. The 4-star hotel, located near the immense beaches of Seignosse, looks like a small green paradise, with its rooms open to nature. Breathe in, breathe out, it’s the new year.

Namastrip retreats, retreat in Seignosse (Landes) from December 29 to January 2, from € 990 per person

Take seaweed baths in Brignogan

A breathtaking view of the Côte des Légendes, at the tip of Finistère.

“Brown or red algae, under the wave the seaweeds move. “ To an air of Gainsbourg, we head to Brignogan (Finistère), on the coast of Legends, for a bath of trace elements and minerals. Because here, at the Hôtel de la Mer, seaweed is king!

The inhabitants of Vauvillers, a small town in the north of Haute-Saône, near the Vosges, still find it difficult to believe it. Huguette Pairon, their dean who died in July at the age of 97, gave them a posthumous surprise. The former nun, whom everyone believed to be penniless, was in fact sitting on pretty savings. She passed them on to her village, on condition that the money was used to finance the renovation and maintenance of the church where she prayed so much.

Huguette Pairon had made her arrangements just a few months before she passed away. In a will deposited in February with the notary of Vauvillers, she bequeathed all of her property to the town. The mayor of the village discovered, at the end of October, the exact amount of this unexpected windfall: 391,000 euros spread over life insurance and a current account “Well fed”, to which must be added a small house estimated at 30,000 euros. “It’s a little Christmas before the hour”, let go of the city councilor, Bruno Machard.

“Huguette Pairon was a very modest person, who did not incur expense or excess. »Bruno Machard, Mayor of Vauvillers

421,000 euros in total: that’s almost a year’s operating budget for the village of 680 inhabitants. No one in Vauvillers would have imagined Huguette Pairon at the head of such a capital. A few years ago, friends had even worried that his house was so poorly heated. They had inquired at the town hall: couldn’t we help this poor lady in need to pay her energy bills? To find out, social services had asked to see her accounts, but the person had refused.

There was nothing to suggest that she had ample means to renovate her home from top to bottom. “Huguette Pairon was a very modest person, with a little retirement, who did not incur expense or excess”, confides the mayor. The former parish priest of the village, who knew the nonagenarian well, confirms this. “She showed no apparent signs of wealth, remembers Jean-Paul Guyot. It was simplicity, humility. ”

Small retirement, small expenses

“Everyone is amazed because she lived poorly, confirms a longtime friend. So much money, we didn’t expect it at all. Huguette, it was not the kind of woman who told her affairs. “

Like others in Vauvillers, this retiree was very caring for the dean of the village: “For the past few months, she hadn’t been able to cook herself, so we prepared her meals. He was always brought fruits and vegetables from the garden. My husband would help her when she had a clogged sink or a door that didn’t close properly. She wanted to give him a coin, but he never accepted. ” No regrets a posteriori: “We just wanted to help him”, smiles her friend. “If we had known she had the money, we would have done the same. ”

THE SEX ACCORDING TO MAÏA

In Sex Education, the Netflix series signed Laurie Nunn, Lily and Ola are two friends who gradually discover their attraction to each other. In season 2, as they get ready to get down to business, Lily lets out a cry of pain: “It’s not you, it’s me. I have something called vaginismus. My vagina is like a carnivorous plant. “

Yep: in the realm of rosebuds, peaches and eggplants, there are also carnivorous plants, mushrooms and a bunch of itchy stuff. And if Lily, in the series, ends up taming her vaginismus (and enjoying shared masturbation), all the stories do not end in happy ending.

This is also one of the blind spots in the discourse on sexuality: the invitation to pleasure takes up so much space that we forget the pain – except when we talk about pain inflicted for pleasure. Yet many people are affected – in the UK, for example, 7.5% of sexually active women between 16 and 74, according to a major study published in 2017 by the British Medical Journal.

Pain is not inevitable

Among the pathologies associated with these pains, we find Lily’s famous vaginismus (the muscles of the pelvic floor contract when a finger or an object enters the vagina), discomfort due to sexually transmitted infections, urinary tract infections, endometriosis, vulvodynia (“pain of the vulva”), VVA (charming acronym for “atrophic vulvovaginitis”), postpartum, priapism … An extended list, the elements of which are gathered under one only medical term: dyspareunia (triple count word), combination of Greek words dys, “Difficulty”, and pareunasthai, “Mating”.

If the problem concerns you, the first instinct will be to inspect yourself, solo or in duo. Do you have pain on the outside, inside? During which activities? Do you feel this pain only during sex, or also at other times of the day? If the situation repeats itself, don’t let it set in. Because pain is not inevitable or an inconvenience with which we must learn to live: it is a signal. “A healthy vulva does not hurt”, recall Elise Thiébaut, journalist, and Camille Tallet, midwife and president of the beloved Périnée association, in the preamble toTo the happiness of the vulva (Leduc, 192 pages, 17 euros), pain relief manual “Who has it between his legs”.

Under the combined effect of confinements and the success of the American series The Lady’s Game, chess has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent months. Looking more closely, we discover that this transgenerational and mixed activity concerns both seasoned players who have been practicing it for decades in the cold, on the damaged table in a Moscow park, as well as young Youtubers followed by million followers.

It is the richness of this culture that the founders of Blitz Society wanted to embody in their very recent chess bar in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. “The first chess club in France open to the public”, is proud of Pierre Houri, one of the founders, who explains that the country had until then only private clubs or themed evenings in restaurants and bars.

Open windows wide

It was in New York that Pierre Houri had the idea of ​​founding his own club. In the early 2000s, he began to play by observing the fans of Washington Square, a mecca for chess, in southern Manhattan, in the district of Greenwich Village. There he meets another French expatriate and also a fan of the chessboard, Michael Benhamou. Together, they discover the city’s specialized clubs and promise to found theirs one day in Paris… They are joined by Romain Benhamou, cousin of Michael, and Vincent Riff, a chess professional who will become the sporting director of the future venue.

By dint of walking the streets of the Saint-Germain district, after a few years, they come across a local in the discreet rue du Sabot. The Blitz Society, which is above all a story of friends and family, then requires the expertise of Michael’s wife, the decorator Sandra Benhamou, who designs hotels, apartments and restaurants in a contemporary style that is always tinged with historical references and a weathered atmosphere.

His first instinct? Open the windows wide and put up large windows that allow, when you pass through the alley, to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the place with the 27 tables devoted to the game that she has designed. “I imagined them as school tables in black laminate, in the center of which I had a green and white game printed, the official colors of the chess boards, and on which I also integrated clocks”, explains Sandra Benhamou, who has also displayed her low Dolly armchairs throughout the room.

A game of chess also looks at each other

Structural racism, debate on separatism, national preference, “woke” movement… As the presidential campaign turns towards questions of immigration and identity, what impact do these divisive subjects have on so-called mixed French couples? How do they cope with the received ideas of which they are the object? And besides, what is it like to be a mixed couple in France today?

Béatrice and Nicolas Lê, Franco-Vietnamese couple.  She is a graphic designer and he is a computer scientist.  Thorigny-sur-Marne (Seine-et-Marne), November 21, 2021.

Lucie and Jacques: when wokism invites itself into the couple

Béatrice and Nicolas: four weddings for a honeymoon

Aurélie and Hakim: “two countries, two cultures”

Emilie and Bernard: “the future of the world” in the countryside

Lucie and Jacques: when wokism invites itself into the couple

For a few years now, Lucie (the first name has been changed) has the impression of “To see things”. A bit like the hero of the film The Sixth Sense who sees the dead haunt the world of the living. For a long time, the 38-year-old young woman, brought up in a working-class district of Reims by a Guadeloupe mother, a cleaner in a hospital, and who did not transmit much to her from her native archipelago, thought that racism was n ‘ did not exist. Since the birth of her daughter four years ago, this designer of digital interfaces no longer lives ” calm “. “Before, I was a bit blind to everything that was going on around me.

Structural racism, debate on separatism, national preference, “woke” movement… As the presidential campaign turns towards questions of immigration and identity, what impact do these divisive subjects have on so-called mixed French couples? How do they cope with the received ideas of which they are the object? And besides, what is it like to be a mixed couple in France today?

Béatrice and Nicolas Lê, Franco-Vietnamese couple.  She is a graphic designer and he is a computer scientist.  Thorigny-sur-Marne (Seine-et-Marne), November 21, 2021.

Lucie and Jacques: when wokism invites itself into the couple

Béatrice and Nicolas: four weddings for a honeymoon

Aurélie and Hakim: “two countries, two cultures”

Emilie and Bernard: “the future of the world” in the countryside

Lucie and Jacques: when wokism invites itself into the couple

For a few years now, Lucie (the first name has been changed) has the impression of “To see things”. A bit like the hero of the film The Sixth Sense who sees the dead haunt the world of the living. For a long time, the 38-year-old young woman, brought up in a working-class district of Reims by a Guadeloupe mother, a cleaner in a hospital, and who did not transmit much to her from her native archipelago, thought that racism was n ‘ did not exist. Since the birth of her daughter four years ago, this designer of digital interfaces no longer lives ” calm “. “Before, I was a bit blind to everything that was going on around me. Now I feel like I’m putting a layer of racism on things. Or rather the reverse: there was a varnish that I scratch today “, she explains. It jumps out at him “Racial fetishism” of a former colleague who boasted of his conquests in Asia; the other colleague who told her, as a compliment, that she was a “Good black woman” ; and the guidance counselors who never told her about business or engineering schools when she was a good student.

The Ludmilla, the second of three signature models specially lined with Nylon for Max Mara's anniversary capsule, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary.

The three coats hang side by side on their hangers in the middle of Ian Griffiths’ desk. The room is located at the top of the headquarters of Max Mara, of which he is the artistic director, a massive glass building and all at right angles, resembling a campus like Silicon Valley. The vast green park and its majestic aligned poplars are located on the outskirts of Reggio Emilia, a city where the brand has reigned since 1951 and in which it opened, in 1964, in a central artery, Via Emilia San Pietro, its very first shop.

This capsule of three coats is how Griffiths chose to celebrate the 70 years of the brand, imposed figure which the marketing departments adore. The Briton, soon to be thirty-five years of service, chose three successful models in cashmere or camel hair – the 101801 of 1981, the Ludmilla of 1992, the Teddy Bear of 2013 – which he had lined with water-repellent nylon. so that they can be worn on the right side as well as on the back. “Signature models that can be turned upside down to protect the most vulnerable material when it rains. I thought about the way young people dress today, about this two-in-one side, immediately practical ”, he explains.

Wool, cashmere, alpaca, camel hair

The project required patience and precision, to build irreproachable bosses, to multiply the tests. The Manuela model, created in 1998, a time envisaged to integrate this mini-anniversary collection, was discarded: its belted shape proved too difficult to work on the reverse. For the rest, congratulates Griffiths in front of his desk invaded by drawings, Pilot pens, Caran d’Ache pencils and an armful of white roses, “The supremacy of Italian know-how has done its work. Because, here, I do not create in an ivory tower by sketching out unrealizable fantasies, but I work in the Italian style: in dialogue with the factories to respond to technical issues. That these coats yawn, that the cuts are approximate would have horrified me ”.

“Each coat is cut from the same roll so that the sleeves, trunks and collars have the same material, the same color, the same weight, without altering the drape. »Alessandro Bianchi, production manager

In fact, these clothes are manufactured just ten minutes away by car, in the two factories of the group, which employ 300 workers (90% women) and from which 2,250 coats and jackets come out every week. Max Mara has built his reputation on this luxury “tailor”. “We are the only Italian brand of women’s fashion to have kept our own factories, praises Alessandro Bianchi, the production manager. This allows us to not compromise on quality, to pass on our know-how to our apprentices and to be able to adapt each prototype by discussing with the creation studio close by. ”

“Fortunately, we are all becoming increasingly aware of organic food. Less – or rather no – pesticides in our food! If you have a piece of land at your disposal and you get the green jitters or have had it for a long time, then creating an organic vegetable garden is only logical! But how do you start?” This is how the blog EatPureLove opens.

EatPureLove is one of the countless websites with tips and experiences about responsible vegetable gardening, great reading material before going to sleep. Cited here for that fine combination of words in the name. The pile of books on the subject is now so high that the gnomes climb on it and help at the transplanting table. After they have polished all the garden tools shiny, of course, they are ready for a new season.

Cultivation plan
The green jitters come in early winter prior to a new growing spring. What the Sinterklaas brochures are for the little ones, De Bolster’s guide is for the amateur gardener. There he flops on the doormat, Organic Seeds 2022. Curious what’s new this year! ‘Browse through more than 340 organic varieties’.

Of course, browsing doesn’t just happen randomly. There is already an idea for a cultivation plan. Not two courgettes this year, those will be monsters that will take up half the garden. And who eats all those courgettes? Besides, if you don’t watch for a few days, there are submarines under the giant leaves. Of last year’s two varieties of potatoes, the Annabelle’s were the tastiest, so we’ll be doing them* again next year. But in a different place in the garden, in terms of crop rotation.

Author’s cultivation plan

pollinators
De Bolster does not have seed potatoes (we get them from Van der Wal). But hundreds of seeds of vegetables, herbs, sprouts, flowers and green manures. You need the latter if you really grow organically. You sow flowers for the flower, but primarily for the insects. De Bolster has sophisticated flower seed packets to attract the right pollinators.

Vegetable gardening is an exercise in zen. A vegetable gardener is a ‘next year person’, in the good sense

In the introduction to his seed catalogue, director Frank Vosselman refers to the consequences of climate change. “By growing organically, we contribute to counteracting this,” he writes. The question is whether all those small biological patches of soil together really help to reduce harmful gases in the atmosphere. But that doesn’t really matter for the enjoyment of the vegetable gardener. Because it is pure pleasure: growing the plants from a seed, growing them at home in the bedroom, planting out when the time comes, caring for them until harvest.

Lekkør F1
What’s new in De Bolster’s offer? Vosselman calls the gray pumpkin ‘Leckør F1’. ‘F1’ refers to the breeding program of hybrid varieties. The name ‘Leckør’ may have been coined by someone with a talent for linguistic humor. Anyway, maybe give it a try next year. With pumpkins it is a bit the same as with courgettes. You soon have too much of them and they are not that tasty.

What does make you curious is the new pole green bean ‘Sunshine’. This one has “golden yellow, slender pods. These are without wires and very tasteful.” We’re going to try that. Solid prod are broad beans, very suitable for freezing. We also tried sugar snaps once, but it didn’t turn out much.

This text was produced without input of any kind – except from the catalog – from De Bolster

Soon we will delve into the various types of peppers. The choice may fall on the
Westland Long Red. It is a gamble to plant them outside, even though the garden is very sheltered, because De Bolster’s peppers are actually intended for professional cultivation in the greenhouse. But with that climate change, the ground could just become a lot warmer.

Moldavia
Vegetable gardening is an exercise in zen. A vegetable gardener is a ‘person next year’, in the good sense. Looking forward to the harvest with hope and patience, then conclude that the experiment has turned out well. Without stress, but also without being able to have much influence on the process, waiting for a result whose dynamics you cannot influence, that is a beneficial experience for the modern professional. But don’t overdo it: it’s also just fun to pull a few crooked carrots from your own garden with your (grand) children.

This text was produced without input of any kind – except from the catalog – from De Bolster. The Bolster is pure, proud Dutch Glory, and that includes the production location in Moldova. There, the company is expanding the cultivation capacity of organic seeds with ‘outgrowers’, growers who produce several types of seeds for De Bolster. In addition to ambition, the company also has potential to grow in Moldova, “organic surfaces are easy to find”, according to a report in the catalog. However, the company is looking for growers with “the right fingerspitzengefühl”. Guys, what a great course, don’t all register at the same time!

Creating an organic vegetable garden is indeed only logical.

This November 18, the pluricentenary ballet of the Lipizzaners continues its imperturbable course. Coming out of their stable at the Hofburg, the imperial palace of the Habsburgs, right in the center of Vienna, the white-robed stallions slowly cross the covered alley that separates them from the merry-go-round, under the protection of an employee in a cape who seems to have come straight out of the hall.

Not easy to bring out of the silence the famous Spanish School of Vienna, which is proud to be, at 450 years old, “The oldest in the world” and “The only one which preserves and cultivates, without transforming it, the classical equestrian art of the high school from the Renaissance to the present day”. Tourists from all over the world are ready to pay up to 225 euros to admire the choreographies at the foot of its 72 Lipizzans, under the order of a dozen preparatory riders wearing bicorns and handpicked.

Narrowness of the imperial stables

No member of management is willing to receive M The magazine of the world. At the end of October, the Austrian Court of Auditors nevertheless formulated, in a report, several criticisms which shake this institution inherited from the Habsburgs and still under the supervision of the Ministry of Agriculture. “Horse breeding does not meet current animal welfare requirements. They lack space to move freely ”, judge the magistrates, describing the narrowness of the imperial stables and “A ventilation system out of service for years”.

From the stables to the merry-go-round, the horses only cover a few meters each day, apart from their thirty-minute walk in step on weekdays, in the magnificent, but small, palace garden, the Burggarten. In a statement, the current director, Sonja Klima, defended herself by ensuring that she “Reinforced measures for the welfare of horses”, since his appointment, in 2019. The Lipizzaners also “work” on an eight-week service, between which they can cheer themselves up in their “Summer quarters” from Heldenberg, 50 kilometers from the Austrian capital.

“But, of course, when they’re in Vienna, they can’t really gallop”, recognizes Maximilian Dobrets-berger, who was for a long time the director of the “l’Espagnole” stud farm, as he always affectionately calls the school. “We are in a protected district, with historic buildings, we are not going to remodel everything to make room”, he also asserts, noting that “The Court of Auditors does not say what we could do best”. The magistrates note, however, that the pressure has increased on the horses, while the institution, in chronic deficit, must increase equestrian shows.

Sylvie Perdoux (in the foreground), employee of the Blois branch of the UFC-Que Choisir, in Vendôme (Loir-et-Cher), on November 5, 2021.

“Don’t expect a rock star tour”, had warned the press officer. There is a van, but no groupie on the horizon. Only a few retirees.

Gilles Castaing, 68, with his boxes full of copies of the magazine What to choose. Louis Berthier, 84 years old, including fifty spent styling all the families of Chalon-sur-Saône (Saône-et-Loire), in his living room in the city center. “I also made a lot of wigs”, he specifies. His, all white, comes off a little at the level of the forehead, ” because of the heat “. The little man tries to screw two metal bars together to install the barnum which will serve as a support for the posters.

Yvette Ravet, 78, also responded. She is worried about the front doors of the truck not opening. Since mid-September, this van, rented for the 70th anniversary of the UFC-Que Choisir, has been touring the country to promote “The first consumer association in France”. “Seventy years anyway, it’s not nothing”, comments Yvette, engaged for eighteen years. But the event does not even move the volunteers. That morning, only six of them, out of the fifty or so in the Chalon-sur-Saône branch, made the trip.

These members who give of their time to settle consumer disputes and represent them in 140 cities are the ground force of the UFC-Que Choisir. “We are not the local cycling club, you still have to be a little militant”, launches Régine Humbert, 68, engaged for twenty years. Former municipal councilor, she joined the UFC de Quimper (Finistère) in 2002.

“If we want to make laws, we can’t do without them. »Guillaume Garot, deputy for Mayenne

Yvette, a school teacher, gave her last lesson in June 1998, and went to the association on the Tuesday of the start of the school year. Since then, every Tuesday evening, she manages stories of “Mechanics who have not completed repairs, telecom operators who overcharge their customers, or tenants who cannot recover their deposit”. She enjoys helping people write their mail and, most importantly, hearing them say “Thank you for listening to us”.

The ex-teacher would like “Leave room for young people, but there aren’t many”. That morning, few passers-by stop in front of the tables crowded with petitions and publications of the association. The local newspaper has announced the arrival of the van, the food entertainment and the photo booth for the little ones, but the few onlookers leaving the Monoprix are watching this band of retirees with curious eyes. Gilles Castaing asks two young women if they know the UFC, the girlfriends say no. “Can you imagine, it’s still amazing that people don’t know about UFC ! », Gilles is surprised.
