Here is Rushton flanked by Susan and Alison. Oddly I have no pictures of the other birthday boy, John M., proabably because he was seated next to me at the table and its a bit hard to snap up someones nose - ditto Mark, who was the other side of me. Jude was at the bottom of the table (not under, at least not all the night) and so was Richard.
One of the others snapped Rushton and Eric sharing some profound experience.
Wonderful magical night.... thanks to the birthday boys and the tribe for making it happen

Our new Mayor is starting work in early 2015, to close the car-park outside Luc's bar and make it exclusively for the use of buses; the buses will turn in the foreground of the school opposite where the plane trees will be cut down.
The new car park will be by the childrens playground, behind the school - the road to access that will be opened along the river front to the cafe du Pont, cutting down the plane trees in the way (picture shows one of them), taking down the little park and all other obstacles.
The children will use an entrance to their school that involves a little corridor and a staircase. (?? Francine thinks this is bad for the kids.)
There will also be a new speed bump by the school to slow the traffic on the Rue de la Gare.
I asked what the use of a petition is, since the Mayor is King. Francine says it will be sent to the funders - the regional councils and the locals boys - asking them to withdraw funding.
Should you want to sign it, it'll be in Lucs cafe for a while.
