A famous French author once said (approximative translation) "If you are more than 30 years old and wake up in the morning without any pain in your body, you are dead". Well, in fact, it's true ; except that 30 has to be replaced by 70. People in our family are falling like stones in clear water. What a summer :-(

Warf !!! Mozillazine now lists my blog in the "rarely updated blogs" section just because I went on vacation. Well, at least it gives me the opportunity to update my blog again and leave that section :-)

What means the 4th of July for you ? For me, it means the day my mother almost died and was saved only by a chain of luck and efficient people. Without the Gendarmerie (a police with military status) of Hossegor, the small village where we were having our vacation, she would not be alive today.
They not only called an ambulance for her, they stopped one on the main road and **ordered** it to rescue my mother. The two people in the ambulance immediately saw the situation was critical and decided they had no time to take her to the hospital. They "tubed" her and it saved her. She recovered after a week in Intensive Care Unit, including 4 days in artifical sleep with the tube.
Back from summer vacation, discovering our new offices, unstacking thousands of emails, wondering what new catastrophe the newspapers are going to announce about my employer today.
