Parler Paris Previews…

Come out and celebrate the 9th Anniversary of the
Dear Parler Paris Reader,
I grew up in a household of women with three sisters, a female dog that gave birth to four female puppies, a grandmother and a mother, of course…and then there was the poor patriarch (my father) who didn’t know what to do with all of us except hide and try not to get involved. When I married and started a family, I prayed for a girl (since I wouldn’t have known how to deal with all that testosterone) and thank goodness, lo and behold, I had a daughter.
The feminist movement began just about the time my hormones kicked in and it was very natural to follow the tide of the times, always having been independent, career-oriented and battling the opposite sex for success. After all these years, it may still be a man’s world, but I wouldn’t want to be one! That’s what millions of women across the globe will be celebrating tomorrow during the Annual Journée de la Femme, or International Women’s Day.
A word from the U.N…
If you want to participate, UNESCO here in Paris is sponsoring an International Conference in the form of a live Web Cast, March 8 2007, 3:00pm – Room II of UNESCO, 7, place de Fontenoy, 7th, having invited five exceptional women from Burundi, Canada, Guatemala, the United States, and Switzerland, representing some of the most renowned peace initiatives, to share their experiences. The panelists will speak about their personal experiences in the domain of peace building and jointly make a statement, calling for the further
involvement of women in peace negotiations and post-conflict political processes.
“UNESCO’s constitution states that ‘since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed.’ This year, to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD), we wish to pay tribute to the women around the world who are courageously, and often anonymously, constructing the defenses of peace.“
On the UNESCO agenda includes:

Celles, Dorgogne – Gorgeous 15th century château, heart of French countryside, sleeps up to 18, private bathrooms in every room. The restored château, next to the church in the very center of Celles, whose bells toll three times a day, is vintage 15th-century built by the family of Dulau d’Allemans. Their name is identified in the letterpress edition of the papers of George Washington. It was a ruin until the current owner employed a master architect from the region who fully understood the character of the house, and whose investigative powers led him to find the hidden massive stone fireplaces and secret stairwells. Together they restored the 15th-century manor into a 21st-century splendor.
