C'est la fête!

Les Chimères, Puylaroque, SW France

 The village fete means streets swept, illuminations up and the dodgems come to town.... it's always held the last weekend in July and starts on Friday night with a 'retraite aux flambeaux' ie. kids have burning torches or Chinese lanterns and everyone tours the narrow streets accompanied by live musicians. Then there's a dance in the village hall. On Saturday around 200 people eat an 4 course evening meal, usually outside but this year storms threatened,so we were inside; all organised (and served!) by the hard working, tireless members of the Fete committee.Then it's the rumba, polka, waltz and maybe salsa till the small hours... Sunday midday sees a wreath placed on the war memorial followed by the ubiquitous 'apéritifs' and a vintage car display with yet another group for the dance in the evening. Monday seems so..o.oo quiet afterwards!

… Unbelievable , but I just found software which can do all hard work promoting your aux-chimerescom.blogspot.com website on complete autopilot - building backlinks and getting your website on top of Google and other search engines 1st pages, so your site finally can get laser targeted qualified traffic, and so you can get lot more visitors for your website.

YEP, that’s right, there’s this little known website which shows you how to get to the top 10 of Google and other search engines guaranteed.

I used it and in just 7 days… got floods of traffic to my site...

…Well check out the incredible results for yourself -

I’m not trying to be rude here, but I believe when you find something that finally works you should share it…

…so that’s what I’m doing today, sharing it with you:


Take care - your friend George
