Nous sommes le mardi treize juin

Beautiful sunny day, but there is a cloud over your morning croissant. The price of butter has more than doubled in twelve months and boulangers fear that the price of croissants and other butter using viennoiseries will have to rise. Butter prices have gone from under 3 euros per kilo, to over 5 euros in the last year. It is said to be the result of a big demand for milk from Asia, leading to a shortage in Europe. Odd that milk producers in France are today protesting that the price they are paid per litre is less than the cost of production, and that there is a rising rate of suicides among farmers.
Off to the boulangerie to buy breakfast while we can still afford it.
