There is an attribution here about the tax topic to Charles 'I Voted for Bush' Eitel. Regular readers and club members will no doubt recall that Charles returned to Florida to make sure his mail-in vote for lower taxes was counted.

To top this story up - when Charles arrivedphoto: adrian, alan pavlik in Tampa he found that all of the votes for lower taxes had already been counted, so he immediately returned to Paris in order not to miss a club meeting.

Adrian 'I Love to Eat a Lot' Leeds and Alan Pavlik sit still for one of Alan's photos, possibly shot by Charles.

Katharine's home town is Sausalito, so it makes both of today's new members Californians - although I suspect that Katharine may live in Paris now.

Alan, on his third visit to Paris, expects to do some Christmas shopping. He likes the rain, because there isn't much of it in Los Angeles. He said he doesn't like the smell of diesel fuel here, but other than this nothing 'needs changing.'

He added that he likes drinking cognac more in Paris than in Pasadena because he can do it at the Café Flore.

In Adrian's final note she writes, "Everyone misses you." I suspect what she means is she's tired of keeping track of members' information and writing notes for the 'report.' Simply being a member at meetings is more fun than doing these reports, 'without fiction.'

The 'About the Café Metropole Club' Page

True facts about your Café Metropole Paris Club in Paris can be found on the 'About the Café Metropole Club page' rather than disinformation.

This 'about' page contains certain fundamental but vague notions concerning this free club, which anybodyphoto: cafe can join. You don't actually need to know any of the club's discontinued 'rules', unless you want to know the true facts about being a member of the only 'real' Internet club in Paris for readers of Metropole Paris which is also free.

By hunting around in the 'All Past Issues' maze of files you can also find out all about this club's history. A bit more than a year's worth of past issues contain 'Updates' of club reports and photos of the club in action, plus hundreds of other unrelated articles, photos, posters and cartoons.

Date, Time and Location of Next Meeting

The Café Metropole Club's next meeting will be on Thursday, 21. December. If you are in Paris it will merely be Saint Pierre Canisius Day, which will be followed by Friday - and not many shopping days left until Christmas.

The café La Corona meeting place will be open just as it is every Thursday of the year. The time for your club's meeting will continue to be from 15:00 to 17:00 in Europe's Central European Time Zone - 'CET' for short and not 'ECETZ' - which is also known as 3 pm to 5 pm elsewhere.

The club's regular secretary will be attending the coming meeting, cast be damned. Since the date for it falls between Christmas and New Years, the meeting will be one of Paris' few lively events and I don't intend to miss it. I hope you don't either.

The café's location is:

Café-Tabac La Corona
2. Rue de l'Amiral Coligny - or - 30. Quai du Louvre
Paris 1. Métro: Pont-Neuf or Châtelet.

A bientôt à Paris,
