Rêve ta vie en couleur, c'est le secret du bonheur. 
Dream your life in color, it's the secret to happiness. -- Walt Disney

Walt Disney, an American of Irish extraction, has made his way onto this blog because his surname is an anglicization of the French Norman name d'Isigny. According to Wikipedia a branch of the d'Isigny family emigrated to Ireland in the 17th century. Disney's grandfather would leave Ireland for America in 1834 to establish his family there. Later Walt would be born in Chicago in 1901.

Butter by the way: One of the three best butters produced in France is the beurre d'Isigny, the other two being the beurre Charentes-Poitou and the beurre Deux-Sevres. All three have been accorded the prestigious A.O.C. label--appellation d'origine contrôlée, which is an official and strict state guarantee of a food product's origin and quality; i.e. that it comes from a specific terroir or country area, and was produced and conditioned with a particular and traditional savoir-faire.
