A Silver Lining?

There are a few things that give Scott and I pause from moving to Paris (besides the serious lack of extraneous cash flow).   They pay really high taxes, and seem to have bought into the nanny state.  However... as the U.S. seems to be moving in that direction, this argument is quickly losing it's validity...
I'm a boot strapper at heart... I believe we should each take care of ourselves thank you very much.
I imagine  you can guess which side of Obamacare I fall on.
BUT...
could there be a silver lining???  The French sure have found a loophole in their healthcare system, one I hope will cross the pond to us...




There is this one pair of Chanel's I've been eyeing for years... ;)

I don't think this is for real but it sure gave me a laugh. I don't know enough about French politics to judge.

I subscribe to this website on Facebook, and it's full of great information if you are planning a trip to Paris anytime soon.

If you speak French does it work over here?

Just think they pay all those taxes and end up with free "designer" sun glassses. We pay all those taxes and just get a bill for more. And, they get to live in Gay Paree!
Things do have a way of balancing out don't they?

My eyes hurt......... Call the Doctor quick.........
My $25 Chico's glasses just don't look quite good enough after your pics!

I will have to look into this site-thanks.

It is indeed a very Socialist country but it does have many good things going for it...food, wine, cheese, food, wine, cheese...

Best wishes and Happy Mother's Day!

Natasha.
