France is on my mind as we recently said good-bye to six Parisian house guests aged two to 52. The two older children were keen to practice their English and soak up the teenage music and fashion. I secretly wished that we had beautiful markets to show off but our guests were delighted to be in the United States and dine on Baltimore's famous steamed crabs. In fact it was a request that they made. I was impressed by how naturally the younger ones just took to the crustaceans. You see, where they come from it is not abnormal to be served your dinner with the head still attached! When you dine with the French there is never a wasted piece of food! Everything gets used.
