Ah oui!! The "French" Riviera-in truth, it was actually a Buick Riviera, but since I always wore a Beret while driving it...

I thought calling it The French Riviera was more fitting and I always had a dream of going to the French Riviera.

The first thing I wanted to do when I got there was try one of those wonderful sidewalk cafes but I lost my english>french translation book and I couldn't figure out how to say "ketchup" in french.

So, in the spirit of Mcgyver, I decided to utilize what I had-Some Kyser broiler foil, some Aunt Jemima syrup and a pair of blunt scissors!!

I decided I wasn't hungry after all so I rented a bicycle and asked directions to the nearest vinyard.

I was offered a taste of wine, which led to another taste, and another, and another, 72 taste tests later...

I stumbled across a smoking caterpillar, who gave me directions to a tea party.

I followed his directions to the tea party, but no sooner was I there sipping some chamomile tea that I realize again that I hate tea, so I asked the server for a strong cup of 100% columbian.

This is the strongest cup of coffee I've ever had and I find myself extremely full of energy and more jittery than Mrs. Olsen.
