French??? Geeze, can't you pick another language. I don't know any stink'n french. I'll ask my husband how to pronounce it... he took high school and college french classes as well as went to france for vacation. Yes I am leaving off the capitalization on purpose. I missed last week's word, guess I'll try to get this one in somewhere. BTW, did you check your site... is the level any higher now?

VW, don't fret the pronunciation. See my entry and you'll feel fine saying it any way you want. LOL

I used the word in my post about signing up for the new event. unfortunately my trackback did not work. I'll try it again later.

Sorry if you received several pings from me. It seems that my entry's not tracking back to you. Y'all are gonna hate me anyway.

When I saw apercu I knew what it meant 'cause I know enough french to read and write. Conversing is another story, but these days I don't care if I assasinate their language. It's my get even!
