My son and I are leaving our small town in southeastern United States to live for a year in a small town in southeastern France. It couldn't possibly be THAT different, right?

Les restaurants du coeurés-le-16-mars-sur-tf1-et-rtl

I have been glued to the TV all night watching an all-star tribute to the Restaurants du Coeur, a charitable association created by the comedian, Coluche, in the 1980's to help feed the poor and shelter the homeless.  The singers who contribute to the songs and albums that raise money for the organization call themselves the "enfoirés," a word that has a negative meaning in any other context.  It is a badge of honor in the music world, though.
