Here is our picture of the week from our erstwhile colleague in the City of Light, Eric Tenin.
Here is Eric’s description:
Last Saturday I got invited to join a bunch of people at “Les Vendanges du Château Charonne”, (the Charonne castle wine harvest), Charonne being a street (and an area) in Paris. Needless to say this is all a big joke, as, of course, there aren’t any castles over there and just a few grapes. Actually enough to pick up and to put in a few buckets where kids – and adults – can crush them with their feet like in the old days 😉 It was a fun, sunny afternoon, very festive, where I had a wonderful time surrounded by lovely people.
Eric Tenin is the co-founder and CEO of polltogo.com, a mobile polling platform, but he is also a true Parisian (born and raised there). Since 2005, he’s been taking a photo of his home town every single day, to feed his www.parisdailyphoto.com (PDP) blog. Since the launch of PDP, thousands of other cities have joined his CityDailyPhoto.com community, sharing their cities from a local view. One of his pictures is featured each Sunday on the Turley blog.

once upon a time i would make my own wine and beer, (useful when you live in a dry county). it’s legal to make, for personal consumption either 50 or 500 gal. per year (i don’t recall which).
wine can be made from any fruit. tomato wine made with cane juice was my favorite.
I always lose my taste for wine when I see people’s bare feet crushing the grapes.
From what I understand, one can get some perfectly lovely wine in the countryside from citizens who put up their own bottles for family use. Just don’t get caught buying it. 😉
This morning on the radio they were interviewing Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and they were asking him about last weeks lost to the Baltimore Ravens,I would swear he saw this photo.For his interpretation of the game was”they were the wine drinkers and we were the grape chrushers”.
I have no doubt anyone watching Pittsburgh today will hear that brought up.
Nice….oh that is in France too…..
