A retired engineer a solar car in Nièvre with bicycles, Journal du Center…

We are talking about a pram…

A pram for an adult is the idea that comes to me in front of a picture that lights up in the Journal du Centera kind of nacelle, in which two sturdy guys on each a good quint, looking rapt and concentrated in a wooden hull, placed on bicycle wheels under Morvan’s joyful sun, aboard the -perhaps- vehicle of tomorrow…

Code name 000, inventor, Jean-Paul Koslowski, 70-year-old retired engineer, who therefore created with two bicycles, two 1500 watt motors, a canopy, a solar panel, a minimalist but rolling machine which accelerates which maneuvers and which is removable, that you can buy as a set and collect yourself for 2000 euros and who he thinks will be in city centers where the speed is limited the successor to our cars. Jean-Paul presented his invention on August 7th at the blueberry festival in Glux en Glenne, I read that Morvandiau is a compulsive inventor, a Trouvetou from Nivernais! and also a generous man who created a group on a social platform so that we can ALL TOGETHER improve his solar car…

On the Ouest-France site we comet, equally electric, the joy of a lady from Brittany who climbs the mythical Mont Ventoux by bike, yes, but electric, oh yes anyway, because on this legendary cycling slope, the electrically assisted bike has become a must, putting the legend within range for many, we celebrate bachelor and bachelorette parties on Ventoux, we rent our VAE at the bottom of the slopes and then we prove something to ourselves, I am hostile, I, who was young, climbed Ventoux for real… But the cyclist from Brittany did not climb alone, she accompanied her child, Arthur, 12, who follows the Tour on TV and who rented her a real carbon bike. , and who sits down hard, who moans against the electric bikes that pass him, but not Mom’s anyway, because she is there for him, she encourages him, he opens his shirt, finally he shakes with all its members after to have achieved its feat, “mother I did it” and if it is to accompany his child, then go, l the engine does not completely cheat… Wish I was 12 years old…

During this time, in Liberation I read Marie-Andrée’s happiness, who do not seem to get tired, strapped into a sedan chair, which is provided with a wheel, and which two strong maneuvers, sometimes lift everything according to the terrain, and when the road rises, it is a whole chain that pulls them and that pushes them . … And then disabled people take part in a legendary race like the Ventoux, diagonal des fous, which crosses the island of Réunion over 165 kilometers and 10,000 meters of altitude difference, and which is inclusive. Marie-Andrée moans, “be careful, I lean too much”, well, what, but in reality she is happy without her crutches and feels that she walks in time with the sled of her bearers… Alfred, a former rugby player from Montpellier, who will carry his daughter Pauline aged 23… Read, strength is contagious…

We also talk about ants…

little orange ants, including the place of liberation still speaks to us that a young man with an outdated name, Théophile Thomas, a nice name, saw in August 2021 in his house in Var where he spent his vacation, he likes ants, Théophile, he had never seen ants like to. And a year later, this summer on the 22nd, they were still there, and had even come closer to the house, they came onto his terrace and they burned, oh, kind of like nettles, he asked himself questions then, because French ants, plug, there are practically none… And then he asked questions around him, on an Internet forum dedicated to ants, he caught creatures for a researcher – and that this is how we knew that the fire ant, also called electric ant, arrived in France , which is worrying because the species is invasive… We’re going to devour them and exterminate them, thanks to Théophile we catch the evil early, it’s luck, he says there aren’t that many people who like ants .. .

And so here we are, sliding towards genes… In Charlie Hebdo you will read Annay, the village of Nièvre still, at about 130 terminals or eight hours journey by solar carriage from the Mirabelle plum festival, it is to find you… And even closer, half an hour by pedaling Belleville sur Loire nuclear power plant , and in Annay, which is very beautiful, we like nuclear power, we trust it, but on the other hand we often hate it, we reject it, we protest against the wind turbines that Total Energies wants to install, that’s fine low infrasound, it will annoy the migrating storks, in short. We discover that Total also triggers anger in its green operations when Obs describes in an extensive file its misdeeds in Africa, which would be a climate time bomb; Total is also subject to a complaint because it would be the kerosene of the company that fed the Russian planes that bombed Ukraine between February and July…

In the world (we talked about Ukraine), read it is as beautiful and noble as it is sad, the search for Alyona, from the village of Myrolioubivka, which the Russians occupied, whose husband Oleg Kovalik, went to a field in the evening to send information to the Ukrainian forces, the partisan Oleg was arrested and killed by the occupier; in her liberated village, Alyona talks about him who had gathered his family one evening to pray around the icons – she wanted to restore her body and then live as she can.

And we are finally talking about an author…

Who since Tuesday no longer lives and who was facetious, fond of history and poetry tells us the telegram among other papers that accompany us to the clear eyes of Jean Teuléthese are beautiful lyrics who says that the joy of this giant, who did not like his time so much and took refuge in the story he told in a funny way, his joy was stronger than the loss this morning, “Chronym, Jean Teulé is dead”, said Ouest – France, that’s it.

Also died a caustic journalist in a long time column of Obs, who was called the new observer, who was called Hervé Algalarrondo, who, before it was fashionable, threw out the childishness of “left redneck”, today we say bobo, and who were generals writes his journalist sister Carole Barjon on the newspaper’s websitewhom he had physically rescued, from the clutches of Scientologists disaffected by an investigation…

Finally, Patrick Kechichian, child of Armenian Genocide survivors who had entered the world, died. the world says so as a housekeeper after running away from his studies, and who became a pillar of the unique world of books under the leadership of a gentleman, François Bott, also recently deceased, he did not go on a trip without taking two books a day. .. Cheers, colleague.

Luckily didn’t die Chantal Goya as Dauphiné shows me unchanged, at 80 brushes, she sets off again on a brave graying trip, it starts in Barbières in Drôme, “I’m not overwhelmed she says, it seems I’m a cult”.
