wow those are nice beach umbrella



Hi Chris, love your podcasts. Do you have a picture of the giant cube? I’m very curious!



Yes, I will send you a picture, but it is also both:

1) In the picture link above
2) in the iTunes enhanced version of the show.



Hey Chris
I recently started listening to your podcast and I love it. Thanks so much for all the great resources.



If you guys ever go to the French Riviera aka Cote d’Azur if you need anything go here:, it’s free classifieds for english speaking people (yeah french is not that easy).
Hope this helps.



It has been several years since the publication of this article. Maybe it is worth coming back and seeing how the French Riviera has changed since then? 🙂 Greetings from Nice! T.



I was actually just back next year. It didn’t look any different to me in my quick visit. What did I miss?
