I think it's nice to take extended time off from work.

Don't tell me you are off too? I assume that means you will be stalking Bono as he tours the country?

I guess that in light of the topic of this thread, I will not go into my latest vacation details ...

No one was that impressed with my 11 week paid summer vacation either.

Oh well.

That is France; and if they don't get their 12 hour work week, the entire nation goes on strike.

6 weeks ? When, where, how, who, which ?

Why nobody told me ? Did I miss something ?

If I had 6 weeks off, I'd be in the US now.

And they all seem to own tractors! Don't get what they demand, everyone drives their damn tractors out on the freeways and blocks traffic.

Ironically, this probably helps their traffic problems because no one in that country knows how to drive!

Hmmm... I'm clearly mistaken then... Well, at least I think you guys get a fair number of days off due to holidays, right?

Do you remember how they have beaten the spanish truck drivers on the border who were carrying fish ?

As for driving in France, I always shoot through the middle.

Isn't that every German's strategy? Slow down for the Maginot line like a speed bump and then drive through France and take over?

Sheesh, I'm still not sure whether it was a smart move to reunite or not. But that's another story.
