    Le coq est le représentant mâle adulte de plusieurs espèces de galliformes. Le terme de "poule" est le nom généralement donné à la femelle de plusieurs espèces d'oiseaux, en particulier à la poule domestique (Gallus gallus domesticus). Ce terme peut désigner d’autres espèces de galliformes, telles que la poule faisane, la poule de bruyère et la poule d’Inde, dont les mâles respectifs sont le faisan, le coq de bruyère et le dindon. Le poulet désigne une jeune volaille de la sous-espèce Gallus gallus domesticus. Un petit poulet mâle s’appelle un coquelet, alors qu’un poulet femelle est une poulette. Un chapon est un jeune coq castré pour que sa chair devienne plus tendre, tandis qu’une poulette à laquelle on a ôté les ovaires - dans le même but - est appelée poularde. Mais là, on...

    Le Journal 16/01/2020 Trop d’intrusions en bout de piste Deux incursions volontaires de piétons ces dernières semaines sur la piste d’atterrissage, et encore trop de bateaux qui ne respectent pas la réglementation dans la baie de Saint-Jean. Si ces incidents deviennent trop nombreux, la DGAC (Direction générale de l’aviation civile) pourrait demander à l’aéroport de prendre des mesures : fermer l’accès entre les deux parties de plage de Saint-Jean, embaucher des vigiles à temps complet, voire réduire l’espace en bout de piste ce qui conduirait les compagnies à limiter davantage le poids de leurs avions. Pour rappel, dans toute la baie de Saint-Jean, le tirant d’air des navires doit être limité à 10 mètres ; et il est bien sûr interdit de s’ancrer dans l’alignement de la piste. ...

    Actually . . . I think both of you may be correct, considering that it’s difficult to say which side of the building is “the front.” In any event, the collection of sculpture items around the “Hotel” are attractive, & all are worth viewing.

    I’ll miss you in March (i.e., departing from upcoming trip in late February), but will be on the island from mid-May into early June. Maybe a time to meet. Meanwhile . . . again — your contributions to the Forum create great exchanges. Very much appreciated (as someone who likes lively commentary & feedback).

    The best way to reserve a table at Shellona is to go the web-site and use the link to e-mail your reservation. I did just that, this morning, for Valentine’s Day lunch for 4 and got confirmation within the hour.

    Agreed with everyone else. If you just check Tradewind's schedule once or twice a week, you'll be able to nab tickets as soon as they go on sale. We do it all the time, and we've never had a problem booking that far out and not getting our pick of any flight we want. You'll also save a ton of money by booking a regularly scheduled charter. And, like you, we always pre-book our accommodations a year in advance well ahead of any airline tickets or Tradewind tickets being on sale. No need to stress over it. Just check out the Tradewind site once or twice a week to make sure you know when your desired dates of travel are available to book, and you'll be fine.

    Météo-France has raised the alert level from Yellow to Orange. The midday update: Forecasts The swell from north to northeast is settling today Sunday with more and more energy.The sea is strong with hollows of 3m50 and more, up to 4m and more offshore, for a period of 12 at 14 seconds. This swell, hollow and quite long, does not have much effect at sea but it generates strong waves on the coasts and agitation in the usually sheltered places (harbor of Gustavia). Tomorrow Monday, the situation changes little if not a slight damping, with lows of 3m50 in the morning then going downwards, no more than 3m in the evening, in a swell which keeps a predominant north direction.
