My favourite is the lovely photo of the Christmas Market, with its "blue tree".
This tree can also be seen on the Monaco webcam !

Thanks for the nice links.

Albert's New Year broadcast to the Monegasques:
(my summary of his speech - only 20% allowed!)

PA's somewhat solemn speech exhorts his people to solidarity with the less well off, and he reaffirms the ambition of a "solid" Principality on the international scene.

Although less touched by the economic downturn, Monaco experienced consequences in the social sector, but there are signs of recovery. He wants the Monegasques to realise that they live in a free and peaceful country, with security, comfort and good facilities, and he wants Monaco to adapt its development to the preservation of the environment.

He wants everyone's engagement and solidarity with the less well off, and wants all decisions and actions to strengthening Monaco's place on the competitive international scene.

He asks the younger generation for engagement towards the future, and he thanks the Monegasque Government and the outgoing Minister of State for his efficiency and authority, and the National Council, and he asks his people to advance in a spirit of unity.

He finishes with another reminder about those who are unemployed, isolated, ill.

Pa's marine research is topic that is quite near to his heart. Then we could find out why those dolphins were in the Monaco waters so close to shore!! Although it seems not surprising Monaco seems irresistable to them too as it does to everyone else!!

From Nice-Matin:
PA has written a letter of condolence to to the widow of Philippe Séguin, a senir official who died suddenly aged 66.

PA describes Séguin as a statesman, a passionate servant of the French Republic, and formerly President of the National Assembly in that country; someone of independence of spirit, with strength of convictions, with authority and fidelity.

Monaco.maville.com Albert II écrit Ã* Mme Philippe Séguin

And here's a photo of the gentleman ... he looks great in his ermine gown.....

Interesting to see, thanks Renata4711!


Prince Albert, general director of International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor
(ITER) and Japanese Kanama Ikeda visit the construction site for International
Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) site in Saint-Paul-les-Durance,
southern France on January 12, 2010.
ITER is designed to produce 500 megawatts of power for extended periods,
10 times the energy needed to keep the energy-generating plasma - a form
of radioactive gas - at extremely high temperatures.

"Valeri crosses the floor in historic move"

Another innovation by PA: for the first time ever, a National Council President (Stephane Valeri) has been allowed to "cross the floor" and become an advisor in the Prince's Government.

The new President of the Conseil National (Monaco's Parliament) is Jean Francois Robillon.

It appears the illustrious PA and Monaco are making strides to continue with their biodiversity interests! It's wonderful that PA & Monaco are helping in Haiti as well !! The before & after pics of Haiti were astounding and certainly showed a tremendous movement took place. So it seems it will take a concerted effort from all Nations to do what is needed to once again intervene at a time when it is so needed.

It is wonderful that Prince Albert is responding so energetically to the catastrophe in Haiti. In the face of such a disaster it is very moving to see so many countries, from the largest to the smallest, responding with all the help they can muster. Prince Albert has really shown great compassion and decisive leadership in this crisis. God save the poor people of Haiti and here's to the Sovereign Prince for rushing to their assistance.

The Sovereign Prince shows a personal initiative in this catastrophe that is above and beyond the call of duty.
