    How many New Year resolutions are concerned  with improving our health and well being? I don't know the answer (quite a lot I would guess) but I do know Its around about this time in  January when those resolutions start to bite and we have to dig a little deeper or else fall foul  and resort to our old habits.

    Thinking of Alsace.

    The recent brief but welcomed spate of warm weather (fingers crossed it may be back) , has turned my thoughts to the French region of Alsace because it has an enviably guaranteed extended Summer. Located in Eastern France on the border with Germany it has a near contintental climate. Critically, running down the western side of this 190k…
