I like Chez Tremblay, too, because 1) it has a certain "je ne sais quoi" air about it; and 2) it honors our French hosts, Pierre and Nicole.

I'm all for "Chez Tremblay" too!

You can also translate 'chez' with 'at' -> "chez moi" : at my place.. or "sonner chez quelqu'un" -> ringing(?) someone's door bell.

One more vote for Chez Tremblay.

I have a friend whose surname is Tremblay (no surprise, he's French-Canadian).  I've never told him that, in a way I can't quite describe, he means more to me than he used to.

BETTERMOST is SO much bettter than the pseudo-French, snooty, Chez Tremblasy--it isn't even FUNNY! You guys all have your taste in your left arm...


Haha Julie, that's how I feel about "Chez Tremblay" sounds more like "Cheezy Tremblay" to me, but if that's what people want, then there it is.

Hey, Julie. They are not thinking about changing the name of the whole forum. Better Most stands.
Currently, this particular section is called Pierre Tremblay. People (excluding Surf. Hi, Surf, you know I love you) want it to be called Chez Tremblay.
...then you ask me about Mexico and tell me you'll kill me for needing somethin' I don't hardly never get.

It doesn't matter to me, really.  You could call this forum "Poop" (which, it seems, we are about to anyway) and it wouldn't stop me from posting messages. (Snarky, yes, that's my middle name - or worse).  ::)

Surf--the only way i could get rid of a dumb picture I posted was to delete my thread!

PLEASE keep "BetterMost" --it's SO much bertter than the pseudo-French, snooty "Chez Tremblay." Whcih made me wince every time i read it on the CT boards!What is WRONG with this damn thing? I can't get rid of the falase "pcture links"==threy won't go away---AND.. "You cant report your own post to the moderator. It just doesn't make sense!"

Oh well. I have posted some pictures, but those aren't they.

It SAYS :CAN WE MAKE THE FORUM NAME BETTER? so I assumed you meant THIS forum...of course Chez Tremblay should stay the way it is...too much  of a hassle to change it anyway...and people are used to it. Even if it is pseudo-French, and snooty. "Chez" somwewhere in Paqris, not here...

Why does sparkle say wew are about to either call this thing "poop" or are about to poop? Just idly curious, nothing more.

CT = Chez Tremblay, by the way.
