Theme Day - My Corner Shop
There is no 'corner shop' as such in Monaco - either supermarkets or street markets or, as here, a traiteur. (Truthfully, there could be one on le Rocher but I didn't get up there with all the chaos of the Grand Prix).
Mr. Brian's is owned by a charming Englishman called - no surprise - Brian. He started years ago by importing the best Scottish smoked salmon into Monaco and his business, like Topsy, just grewed. He now employs 4 chefs and produces beautiful food that is served to the rich and famous, often on their yachts. You can read about Mr. Brian's by clicking on the link. You can also read about the day Brian's dog was taken by clicking on The Day Lou was Stolen!

I'm working at a dog show in Spain all day today (150 Old English Sheepdogs from around the world) but will spend tomorrow catching up and commenting. Meanwhile have a lovely Theme Day everyone!
