A single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. (1)

School holidays start after classes tomorrow, for two weeks of festive fun.

As for the adults, if you're still looking for something special to drink with the turkey, help your digestion, or toast to a healthy New Year, this afternoon there's an auction at the Hotel des Ventes. Check out the pdf catalogue online.

A little tipple might also take the edge off the Covid news. Cases continue to rise, and although the Omicron variant is thought to be less severe, it's also said to be more infectious. Getting a third shot of vaccine is considered the best protection, and now, in addition to the Government's Covid centre at Auditorium Rainier III, the Centre Cardio-Thoracique is also offering booster jabs. Make a reservation on 92 05 55 00.

Protestors gathered again last weekend to object to the health pass, vaccine mandate for health workers, and mask-wearing for kids at school. Hospitality workers are also protesting the requirement for them to have a health pass for work purposes.

As expected, a few events have been cancelled; the Christmas swim at Larvotto Beach had been scheduled for Christmas Eve, the International Circus Festival in January, and yesterday's Nutcracker concert for young people. We're also seeing some events sold-out due to limits on audience numbers.

So let's look ahead to 2022 instead. Ikea plans to open a new store in Saint-Isidore in the Var Valley in May, and Brad Pitt is reviving the studio on his Miraval Estate in the Var Departement. Pink Floyd, Sting, and Sade recorded tracks there in its heyday.

And finally...

By mutual agreement Monaco Roca and Zvezdan Mitrovic have parted company. The basketball team have brought back ex-coach Sasa Obradovic to take his place. Viva Munegu!
