A big thank you to Laurel for opening up her home to us for our monthly Beginner's Cercle and Learn.  This is a meetup that will occur regularly on the second Thursday of every month at Laurel's house.  It is for those whose level is beginner through low intermediate and is intended to be a group share and learn experience.  There will be at least two people at the advanced level at every event so that questions can be answered.  The topic this month will be Christmas and your Christmas plans.  Please bring a Christmas food or drink item to share with everyone.

If there aren't any spots left, please add yourself to the waiting list.  When a spot opens up, Meetup will send you an email and the first person to respond directly to the email gets the spot.  Laurel and I look forward to seeing you there.

    Hi, I have a medical condition that changes daily in severity (sort of like fibromyalgia, although it's not) and I can't be sure if I can make this or not. I had said yes; I changed it because I'm doing poorly right now. But there's still a small chance I could get to come.

      Brittany, I understand why you couldn't make it. I have fibromyalgia and go through the same ups and downs. Due to many commitments, I often do too much and then pay for it later. You are wise to no overdo it. Take care of yourself.

    A big thank you to Laurel for hosting and to everyone who came out. I especially appreciate those who continue to come out every month. Good French conversation.

    Sorry I missed yesterday, my flight was cancelled... I was only in town for 2 days. I was planning on bringing some movies, but here is a list (from a 30 year old parisian friend) of suggested fiilms: I hope this can compensate a bit for my absence: Le père Noël est une ordure
    Les bronzés
    Les bronzés dont du ski
    Les visiteurs
    Les anges gardiens
    Les trois frères
    La cité de la peur (hilarious)

    PS: You may not appreciate them though
    *The funny/trash one
    Lascars
    L'auberge espagnole
    Amélie Poulain
    Dobermann
    Nos jours heureux
    Nikita
    99 francs
    Sheitan
    Mais qui a tué Pamela Rose
    Le boulet
    Enfermé dehors
    Bernie
    Ne le dis à personne
    Astérix mission Cléopatre

    *I guess a little bit more philosophical
    C'est arrivé près de chez vous (hard to watch)
    Un air de famille
    Le péril jeune
    Se souvenir des belles choses
    De battre mon cœur s'est arrêté
    Vas vis et deviens
    Les petits mouchoirs
    La haine
    La cité des enfants perdus
    36 quai des orfèvres

    I am preparing for a trip to France next spring. I am using Pimsleur cd's which I like very much and feel ready to try out some very basic conversation. Looking forward to meeting others at the beginners circle.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
