The tourists are looking southeast at the Champ de Mars, a grassy park which extends past the Eiffel Tower until you reach the École Militaire  (Military School) which is faintly visible in this photo.  The Champ de Mars has a terrific party each year for Bastille Day  (July 14.)  You can take an elevator to the top of the Tower and get a great view of the city.

This song was featured in the movie “Saving Private Ryan” when, toward the end, Captain Miller’s men are waiting for the Germans to attack their position guarding a critical bridge in a bombed out French town near Normandy. They find some old records and play them. The music echoes down the abandoned avenues.  It is a moment of peaceful beauty for these GI’s who are about to have their world turned upside down.

Some of you may recall this post from January, but I had nothing medical to say about the subject of dietary fats.  However, a recent study about egg consumption raises some important issues.

The egg question has bounced around for some time, and the scientific information has been scrambled.  Some of the data is soft boiled, but a recent trial of thousands of patients requires that we re-visit eggs (known to the French as oeufs) as a subject of discussion.  Scroll down to find our latest oeufs post.  Or click on this link:

Eggs: good or bad on BF

I might add, regarding foie gras, it is pure liver, usually duck or goose, and it is loaded with saturated fat.  Yet it is a delicacy, so it’s best to eat no more than 2 ounces at any one time.  We went to a restaurant in France where the menu scared me.  Everything there contained foie gras. But, if you have never tried it, it is almost addictive, and you need to pay attention because what do I look like?  Chopped liver perhaps?

CAMILLE.  A French singer of Parisian street songs recorded “Le Festin”  (tr: the feast) for the Disney film “Ratatouille”

Here is a partial translation:

“Dreams are to lovers as wine is to friends

Carried through lifetimes, (and) spilled now and then

I am driven by hunger, so saddened to be

Thieving in darkness; I know you’re not pleased

But nothing worth eating is free”

Ocean Grove, New Jersey. May, 2013. By Paul Goldfinger.   Re-post from May, 2013 on Blogfinger.

ALLISON ADAMS TUCKER.  “Volver”  (by Carlos Gardel)  This song is from the 1930’s and was written in Argentina. It started out as a tango.  It was featured in a movie called Volver with Penelope Cruz which won awards at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

The version below is not from the movie. I’m not sure if it is a tango or a cha-cha or what?  Anybody know?   It is performed by Allison Adams Tucker,  a contemporary  jazz singer from California who sings in multiple languages including Spanish, French, English and Italian.
