Cats & Michel de Montaigne - Erratum

Picture by xgianaxandxnick

I have been taken to task by CM, over the error in the French of the de Montaigne quotation that I posted yesterday.

CM directed me to a link that lists many famous French cat quotations including of course this one. My excuse is that I copied the quote directly from The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. I thought at the the time that "...joue à mon chat" was a bit strange, thinking that "avec" would be better, but I have enormous trouble with French prepositions so did not feel in a position to challenge it!

So once again:

" Quand je joue avec mon chat , qui sait s'il ne s'amuse pas plus de moi que je le fais de lui ?"

(When I play with my cat, who knows whether he isn’t amusing himself with me more than I am with him?)

I went back to this site and I like the quote of Leonardo da Vinci:
"Même le plus petit félin est un chef-d'oeuvre."

Thanks for that - a super quote, but of course now I cannot use it myself!

Sod the Law!

Music and Radio Blog Club

Radio Blog Club, a good friend for a while appears to be in some legislative difficulty...

However, in tribute to its brave effort, I shall leave the existing track on this page (which amazingly still works)

Sadly my Playlist no longer works (hence its removal) thanks to the absurd "Hadopi" legislation in France. Apologies to all.
