air de paris pollution balloon

A balloon that floats above Paris’ André-Citroën park monitors the air pollution levels every hour. If the balloon is green, your lungs have nothing to worry about since it means the air quality is good. A red signifies poor air quality and orange means mediocre air quality. All findings are recorded on the Air Quality Now website.

don't forget the lyrics france

OMGOMGOMG! N’oubliez pas les paroles, the very entertaining game show has arrived. I love the American version, “Don’t Forget the Lyrics,” hosted by Wayne Brady. They seem to find the most awesome contestants. The show is basically “Who wants to be a millionaire” slyly merged to a Karaoke quiz where the contestant must sing a selected song and complete the missing lyrics in the song. Fun!

Now, the very same show has come here to France, the French version with my favorite host, Nagui. Love him. (He’s also the host for the excellent music showcase, Taratata) It started last Saturday but since we weren’t around, we missed the premiere! That is ok because the second show is tonight at 7pm on France 2. I hope it’s as silly as the American version.

All songs will be in French. Won’t they run out of songs? Just kidding.

N’oubliez pas les paroles
