I don’t know what it is about the mouse for an iMac but it eats batteries. I have never before known anything which consumed batteries so quickly. After the low battery warning having been displayed for a time the mouse (or should that be iMouse?) batteries died this afternoon. On my way out I spotted something I hadn’t seen before on the wall of my local florists. It’s not like the area where I live is drab and colourless, after all the nearest tram stop is the one for the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. Then there is the local bar, just around the corner in the appropriately named Rue de Barr which is adorned with pictures of men and women in Alsatian dress (pictured above) and just one block further away is our local Cave ‘le Vinophile’ for the all important stocks of the fermented grape. Those I know about and had become part of the local scenery, so much so that they are hardly noticed anymore.
