I am also of French decent, and although I was the past president of the Franco-American Day Committee in Lowell the past two years, je ne parle pas francais, aussi. THAT is about the extent of my French & I don't even remember if I wrote THAT correctly.
I only took French in high school and although my parents spoke fluent French, when I was young, I REFUSED to learn. Now, I am always trying to remember the little bit I did know & learn more.
I think you chose a WONDERFUL name, Madame Alouette! I hope to meet you at the SP Rally on Saturday in Sturbridge. 2199 days ago

The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. Ive been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! (¸.´ (¸.´ ♥¸.´¸¸. (¸.´ (¸.*¨ (¸.¸.*´¨`* .¸♥. You are- WONDERFUL-cuz youre you!!!
