This medieval French village sits above the Dordogne River in south-central France. There is a hotel there and a little park.

In the mornings, the mist rises off the river and makes itself known 900 feet above.  On market day, they set up here early, and as the mist clears, a foie gras stand is seen along with tables belonging to fresh food merchants selling sausage, vegetables, bread and fish.

During the Hundred Years War, the English owned this spot for awhile.  Luckily the French got it back—the food’s better.  But Monty Python is funnier.

I you're going to make a toast, this is a good place to do it: British Virgin Islands. Paul Goldfinger photo. 2005.

If you’re going to make a toast, this is a good place to do it:  British Virgin Islands watering hole.  Arrive by boat. Paul Goldfinger photo. 2005.

KEITH URBAN raises a few toasts in this duet with ERIC CHURCH nominated for a 2015 Grammy for Best Country Duo.  The song is about toasting and celebrating some of life’s finest moments such as sailing to Mexico, driving Dad’s old pickup truck,  listening to fine live music, being with the one you love, and even having a child.  The imagery moves fast, and the lyrics are described as “cinematic.”

It’s April in Paris, right now.  And it is a fine time to visit that most romantic of cities, but sometimes April there can dip down to the 40’s—sound familiar?

And, despite Yip Harburg’s lyrics, chestnuts in blossom don’t happen till May, and nobody is setting “holiday tables under the trees.”  In Luxembourg Gardens, blooms are starting to pop in April, and they have a bandstand there.

However, choose May to visit Paris.

“I never knew the charm of spring
I never met it face to face
I never knew my heart could sing
I never missed a warm embrace

“Till April in Paris..
“Whom can I run to?
What have you done to my heart?”

This song, “April in Paris” was written by Yip Harburg and Vernon Duke for a 1932 Broadway show called, “Walk a Little Faster.”

Harburg also wrote the lyrics for “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” 

Many have recorded “April in Paris,” but Count Basie and Ella Fitzgerald made the most famous version.
