====================
Special Sponsored Message
====================

Just wanted to send you a quick reminder that as an ITWPA member you get $200 off our upcoming workshop in San Diego.

Plus… that $200 savings is transferable!

If you know a friend, neighbor, or family member who’d be interested in attending, that person can save $200 too.

Graduates from these programs boast more success and see more bylines than most. I’ve watched retired couples, opera singers, band members, nurses, sound engineers, photographers, and people from just about every background you can imagine transform themselves into travel writers in just 4 days.

You’ll find some of their stories here: http://www.thetravelwriterslife.com/workshop/pp

That’s because, unlike other programs where you sit in a chair all day and scribble notes, our workshops are highly interactive and even include an assignment out-and-about in town doing real “travel-writer work.” (I use the word “work” loosely. You’ll be busy finding a good restaurant to write about or an unusual shop… wandering through a park or maybe taking in a show or a museum. Essentially, you’ll be enjoying yourself.)

The very next day in class you start writing, and by the end of the program you leave with a publishable piece in hand.

What’s more, you’re given proven templates for travel articles you can use when you get home. Follow these formulas, and you’ll always know what to put first and what to write next. They’ll cut hours off your writing time and pretty soon you’ll be writing faster and smarter than most other writers.

Not only that, but at the end of the workshop (when you have your finished piece ready to go) we literally hand you the names and contact information for a handful of editors in the market for articles from freelancers, all willing to work with first-time writers. Your success is practically guaranteed.

To reserve your place in San Diego (or to extend this offer to a friend or family member), speak with my colleagues Michelle, Barbara, or Michael at Agora Travel today by calling (800) 926-6575 or (561) 243-6276, or e-mail: info@agoratravel.com. Or visit http://www.thetravelwriterslife.com/workshop/pp/ where you’ll find a day-by-day schedule of events.

Lori Appling
Director, AWAI’s Travel Writer Program

P.S. A student at our recent Las Vegas workshop called it, “informative, fast-paced, and friendly… once you leave this workshop, the only thing blocking your success is you!” Indeed. My colleagues and I have been looking forward to this San Diego event all year. With each subsequent workshop, we improve and revise the program. This November in San Diego, you can expect a productive, pleasurable, and above all, life-changing experience.
====================

Dear Parler Paris Reader,

I woke up this morning thinking I would write about chocolate since I’m planning to attend the Salon du Chocolat tonight. But, then my inbox was overflowing with mail in response to Monday’s newsletter and one was of particular interest. (More about chocolate later.)

If you didn’t have a chance to read it or want to refresh your memory, click on /parlerparis/issues/pparis25-10-04.html

Monday’s article makes no political statement whatsoever, although it does report on what I and others have discovered. I quoted statements others made in open, published forums — as their opinions, not mine. And I love that you readers really do read and let your emotions run high! From the dozens of letters I received, it is clear that in this election, the sides are violently opposed. It frightens me, however, that we Americans can be so far apart in basic ideology.

One very important letter comes from Robert R. Pingeon, the Chairman of Republicans Abroad France. Like a resumé, he noted all the activities the organization has participated in related to voter registration. I was certainly unaware of them…perhaps I’m just not on his mailing list?? And there was so little on the Internet — barely his contact information. I publish information from all non-profit organizations that inform me of their activities as a community service in Wednesday’s Community Calendar, but he nor anyone else has yet to send them to me. I welcome it in all fairness to both sides. M. Pingeon, please be my guest!

Now, on a more delectable topic — French chocolate. Being the chocoholic that I am, I jumped at the chance to attend the opening of the annual “Salon du Chocolat!” Starting tomorrow at 10 a.m.
(till 9 p.m.) you’ll be able to spend hours, even days, discovering the world’s best chocolate producers, both large and small. Continuing through November 1st at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles, there is expected to be over 20 ongoing demonstrations and plenty of opportunities for tasting. Tickets are 11 Euros for one day of chocolate immersion and you can bet I’m planning on have a totally chocolate dinner tonight!

A la prochaine…

Stand Up Comedy

Carey Marx

October 31st & November 2nd 8:30 p.m.

A former magician, Marx now concentrates on tricks of the verbal kind, using the conjurer’s trick of misdirection to ensure the quirky punchlines come unexpectedly out of leftfield. Offbeat, and sometimes off-colour, he finds comedy in the most unconventional of places, he crafts a sharp and original set full of surprises. He cleverly manages to be childish and knowing at the same time, neither pandering to the lowest denominator nor wearing his intelligence on its sleeve.
Tickets: 17 & 15 euros

Reginal D Hunter

November 22nd & November 23rd 8:30 p.m.

The black american 2 time perrier nominated politically incorrect stand-up makes his Paris debut.
Originally from the Deep South of the USA, Reg is one of the good guys of comedy.
A hypnotic, smooth-talking, very human comedian who hits your funny bone with tales of love, hate, death and all that is in between.

Tickets: 20 & 17 euros

Un Demie Sciecle d’Arthur Smith

November 28th, 8:30 p.m

Astro-Paris by Eric Francis
The Flyby and the Grand Quintile
====================

Those who are space watchers or news watchers may have noticed that Tuesday, Oct. 27 was the historic flyby of the Cassini Space Probe past Titan, the great moon of Saturn. What most people don’t know is that part of the Cassini mission, a cooperative effort of the European Space Agency, the Italian Space Agency and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (NASA’s contractor) is being run from just outside Paris at L’Observatoire de Meudon. Tomorrow I will be visiting the observatory and interviewing Dr Athena Coustenis, a long-time scholar of Titan, who is in charge of three experiments on the mission, including two on the Huygens Space Probe that will be dropped from Cassini to Titan in early January. I’ll have more on that interview, and a first-hand look around the laboratory and its magnificent outdoor facilities, next week in Astro-Paris.

News from the world of astrology is just as big. Overnight tonight is the historic total eclipse of the Moon in Taurus. Eclipses themselves always feel a bit momentous, but the reason this one is historic is that it comes with a G

rand Quintile aspect, that is, a five-pointed star that links together Jupiter, Pluto, Uranus, the Moon and Saturn.

The eclipse is responsible for a lot of the tense, uneasy pressure that many people are feeling. Eclipses always feel a little edgy. This one happens to be unusually intense because it’s a total eclipse and because it’s in one of the Moon’s own signs, Taurus. But the results should far exceed the costs, based on the presence of the Grand Quintile, which is an aspect that says, in a word, FLOW. This is really a time, despite all control impulses to the contrary, to go with the flow.

Scorpio Birthdays This Week

Healthy relationships change, and change regularly. A total lunar eclipse around the time of your solar return, placed in your opposite sign Taurus, says strongly that you need to move with the changes that have entered one particularly close relationship. It may seem like you are not the one who is changing; you have all the evidence that your partner is. But in fact your whole idea of what it means to relate to another person is being completely revised by several deep inner shifts that are all your own. Be grateful that the progress in the lives of those close to you is allowing you to grow and become the person you need to be. Keep checking in; update your files every day, because that’s how fast we change. This is the mark of sanity.
