Mini review – Keith & Clare Channing’s Blog - Auvergne

auvergne  Mini review   Keith & Clare Channings Blog   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceNow, this really has to be a mini review even if it is one of the biggest blogs I’ve ever seen!

Keith & Clare Channing’s parking space on the Information Super-highway (you see, it’s even got a massive title) started off in November 2006 with the appropriately titled Welcome to our weblog, in which Keith talks about redundancy, taking early retirement and making plans to move to France.

The next day Clare asks (and answers) the question Why here?

I’ll leave you to read the answer but I ought to mention that I read somewhere that the Auvergne is the least anglophiled (or Anglodefiled?) region of France – interesting to find out why people move there apart from the obvious Michelin, Rugby and University reasons of Clerment-Ferrand.

But, I digress.




There are, in fact, ten million, one hundred and eleventy two thousand posts on this blog and I really can’t be expected to read every one in order to give a balanced review (I’d be really rather old before I finished! Or, at least, a lot older than I already am!)

So, I’m just going to pick and choose a few posts at random and hope that I tickle your fancy enough so that you might consider popping over and doing the same.

In September 2007 Autumn arrives at Beaugut and with it, a gigantic snail.

And it seems that the resident grass snake has reproduced!

Talking of large things, in Some you win, some you lose there’s a massive parsnip that Clare has managed to grow.

Which might make up for the fact that the washing machine has broken down.

In Sundry’d Tomatoes we learn how to make sun dried tomatoes (yes, those expensive ones that you can get in the supermarkets) for next to nothing.

I’m not sure if you actually need to have an Opel Astra to make it work but, as that’s what I drive, I’ll give it a go – hen the sun comes out, of course; which is about 6 months away in my part of rural Brittany!

If gardening is your thing you really need to read It’s all kicking off here in which all sorts of things are growing.

I do like the look of those broad beans!

Snow in May?

Surely not!

But yes, in It’s May, for goodness’ sake! we do get to see rather a lot of the white stuff!

I guess that means the barbeque is cancelled then?

Keith & Clare Channing’s parking space on the Information Super-highway truly is a massive blog and well worth a visit. There’s no way you’ll be able to read it all in one sitting so I’d suggest you take it in easy chunks and do a bit at a time.

If you like what you see you could always subscribe to receive updates every time a new posts is added.

You might even want to leave a comment to let Keith and Clare know that you’ve enjoyed reading their posts?

All the best

    Wow! how exciting to be mentioned in dispatches. Thank you for your mini review. As you say, an unexpected comment is always welcome. Keith works very hard on the blog and sometimes there isn’t much to say – not because we don’t love it here but we are just too busy relaxing!
    He is busy writing this weeks instalment as we “speak” so… watch this space.
    Thanks again.
    Clare.
