The Vendée Blog - Pays de la Loire

pays de la loire  The Vendée Blog   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceThe Vendée Blog came highly recommended and so I took a look.  It took me a little while to get into it but, once I had, I was hooked.

Warning, this is a very, very clever blog.    There is plenty to get your teeth into here.

It is, I believe, currently being considered for a World Heritage Center award for the work being done on BAT and BAC differentiation.

For those of you who didn’t do very well at Calculus at school – this means that Jon Doust (not the famous Australian one – the not so famous English one), has found and developed a classification system for that strangest of creatures… The Brit in France!





To find out more about the blog, the blog author, someone called Ted and, most importantly, to learn the differences between BATs and BACs – take a look at the Who’s Who and What’s What page.

You might also wish to look at The Daily Mail Article which started it all off (although, personally I believe the We’re better than the French, yes we are, no we’re not, he’s behind you! pantomine has been going on since 1066 and shows no sign of stopping any time soon!)

There is way too much on this blog to be able to sum it up simply but you might want to start with these posts….. FartsWhere Old Citroens Go To Die and An Outbreak of Feet.

And then, suitably prepared, you may wish to move on to these…. The Bit of Hell That Dante Missed,

By the way, Jon has had some articles published in the Daily Telegraph (such as this one… Fancy a swinging time?) but I wouldn’t let that put you off.

So, pour yourself a large drink, work out whether you are a BAC, a BAT or worse still, a BB (see The Daily Mail Article for details of BBs) and dive into The Vendée Blog.

All the best
