What's new

Shiver me timbers if it ain't Talk Like a Pirate Day! Fer all ye landlubbers, I'll stick to the Queen's English.

British broadcaster BBC2 is making a documentary about life in Monaco. The cameras have been following staff at the Club des Residents Etrangers (CREM) to find out what goes on there. Producers also plan an interview with Prince Albert and a peek at the daily life of residents. The 3-hour program hopes to challenge some of the stereotypes about us. So, if you're a CREM member off to the clubhouse for a G&T, will you wear your designer bling or dress down? Whichever it's to be, don't forget your smile.

This weekend is the 10th anniversary of the twinning of Monaco and Lucciana, Corsica. The two places share the legend of St Devote, and Monaco Mairie has planned celebrations Friday and Saturday. At 6pm tomorrow there's a public mass at St Devote Church, and in the evening a concert in Jardin Exotique. On Saturday at midday and in the evening at Condamine market, there'll be an opportunity to try Corsican food.

And finally, Rugby World Cup is about to start in Japan. The first game is tomorrow, Japan v Russia, at Monaco time 12:45. You can watch at McCarthy's (and no doubt Slammers), cheering for France on Saturday morning (9:15 France v Argentina). We'll be singing for Wales on Monday (12:15 Wales v Georgia), along with the Japanese, who have mastered the beautiful Welsh anthem (watch YouTube video). Cymru am byth!
