The term “chateau” can refer to everything from a French castle, manor house, winery estate, or country home.

Tonight we were able to hit a couple of big homers. Match the energy and intensity of the Royals, nor their ability to manufacture runs. When you throw this surprising power surge into the Royals mix, the Angels had no answer.. Good and bad guys fit neatly into these locations nary a square peg scrapes against a round hole.

There, the Supreme Court said the “undue burden” meant the regulation had to put a “substantial obstacle” in the way of women seeking to terminate their pregnancies. The question in Casey was the constitutionality of a Pennsylvania law that required, among other things, a 24 hour waiting period after a woman consented to abortion before she could get one, and that minors had to have parental consent. The Court found that neither of these constraints created a “substantial obstacle.” Whole Women’s Health will decide whether the Casey test has any teeth at all, or whether states can simply regulate abortion away.
The French Riviera has a wan charm in winter. The light is still pretty, if flintier; sole strollers with dogs occupy beaches that in August are jam packed with loungers, and the French adapt with customary efficiency to the cold. In places such as Cannes or St Raphael, where the entire thrust of 20th century architectural endeavour has been to cater for tourism, the pointless weight of empty, grand hotels and apartment blocks becomes a little depressing, like the City of London on a Sunday.
