Hi from Brittany,

Mikey,

> BTW, is "fortnight" still used in jolly old Mother England?

Fortnight is still used in jolly Old Mother England,
and at least is pertinent (ie fourteen nights = 2 weeks).

In France, they can't count proper like we do !

Two weeks = 15 days (quinze jours)

and

One week = 8 days (huit jours)

Now I know the Beatles sang "Eight days a week"

but this is no excuse .......   :>)
