French Language/french translation

Question
Boo hoo again!

So my dear Caro, is the translation in French for "what the future holds"
"de quoi l'avenir est fait" (literally of what the future is made)?  and if so since the word future is used, then we don't need "will be made"  "l'avenir sera fait."

J'irai avec Nadia en Naples, Fl. à "a houseparty" pour feter le boujalais nouveau.  Naples est 2 3/4 heures de ma maison.  Qu'est-ce que tu fera?

J m'ai decidé tot à décorer pour les fetes et laisse (leave) les décorations jusqu à le fin de janvier à cause de trop de travail de deballer et à emballage. (too much work to unpack and pack them up again.

Est-ce-que potirons ou citrouilles (pumpkins faire pousser en France.  (Are pumpkins grown in France?)

Est-ce-que ta region a $1 magasins et si oui, de quoi le nom ou ils s'appellent?

Comment tu votes pour le président, par courrier ou en privé.

Je fais parti d'un club du livre concernant les travails de Carl Jung.  Je ne suis pas un intellectuelle mais j'aime etre autour d'eux.(I like to be around them so I "can pick their brain" (an expression.) Translate please.

J'ai lu ou les écrivans sont réponsible pour les neologisms (new words or phrases) dans la dictionnaire.  Pourquoi bother having them quand le plupart de monde ne would not know (oops, forgot to bring my verb book) ce que ca veux dire. Lequel (Which) a le plus meilleur son mélodique ou plus de plaisir pour l'oreille, "flummox ou perplex"  He was flummoxed by their remark. Je le donne un Booooooo!  Mais He was perlexed by their remark.   I give it a "yay!

C'est tout pour maintenant mon ange.

HI AGAIN,

So my dear Caro, is the translation in French for "what the future holds"

=>

J'irai avec Nadia en Naples, Fl. à "a houseparty" pour feter le BEAUJOLAIS nouveau.  Naples est 2 3/4 heures de ma maison.  Qu'est-ce que tu fera?
=> NO NAPLES IS IN ITALY :-) I AM ALWAYS AMAZED TO SEE HOW MANY AMERICAN CITIES HAVE A EURPEAN NAME (I DISCOVERED THERE WAS PARIS IN TEXAS)
I HAVE SEEN MANY ADS FOR THE BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU. I DO NOT DRINK RED WINE (IT MAKES ME SICK) I PREFER WHITE WINE - ALSACIAN WHITE WINE! HIPS!

JE ME SUIS decidéE à METTRE LES DéCORATIONS pour les fetes ASSEZ TÔT et JE LES (TO AVOID THE REPETITION OF THE WORD)  laisseRAI (leave) jusqu à lA fin (NOT NECESSARY de) janvier PARCE QUE C'EST  trop de travail POUR LES deballer et LES REMBALLER.
=> HAVE A LOOK ON GOOGLE FOR COLMAR MARCHES DE NOEL (XMAS MARKETS) YOU WILL SEE WHAT WE ARE UP TO. I SAW HUGE TRUCKS CARRYING THE LITTLE HOUSES FOR THE MARKET (IT OPENS ON NOV.26Th). THERE ARE MANY LIGHTS AND DECORATION IN THE STREETS.

Est-ce-que potirons ou citrouilles (pumpkins faire) pousseNT en France.  (Are pumpkins grown in France?)=> YES. I LIKE PUMPKIN SOUPS. SOME PEOPLE MAKE JACK O LANTERN FOR HALLOWEEN, BUT THIS IS NOT REALLY A FRENCH TRADITION, SO IT IS NOT AS FREQUENT AS IT SHOULD BE IN THE US.

Est-ce-que ta region a $1 magasins et si oui, de quoi le nom ou ils s'appellent?
=> THERE USED TO BE ONE. OTHER FIRMS LIKE LA FOIRE FOUILLE SELL CHEAP THINGS;

Comment tu votes pour le président, par courrier ou en privé.
=> IN FRANCE, YOU NEED TO GO IN A SPECIFIC PLACE (GENERALLY A PUBLIC PLACE, IT CAN BE THE CITY HALL OR A SCHOOL, IT DEPENDS ON YOUR DISTRICT); YOU GO INTO A LITTLE CABIN TO PUT THE PAPER WITH THE NAME OF YOUR CANDIDATE IN AN ENVELOPPE. ELECTIONS ARE NOT LIKE IN THE US. I DISCOVERED THAT YOU HAD TO VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENT, BUT ALSO FOR MEMBERS OF THE SENATE. SO YOU HAVE MANY CHOICES TO MAKE, WHICH IS NOT THE CASE IN FRANCE. ALSO IN FRANCE THE ELECTIONS TAKE PLACE ON SUNDAYS SO THAT EVERYBODY CAN GO THERE. IT SHOULD NOT BE EASY TO GO AND VOTE ON A WORKING DAY.

ANYWAY, IN FRANCE WE WERE VERY FASCINATING BY THE DEBATES AND THE CAMPAIGN FOR THE FIGHT OBAMA VS ROMNEY! WE LIKE POLITICS HERE!

Je fais partiE d'un club du livre concernant les travaUX de Carl Jung.  Je ne suis pas unE intellectuelle mais j'aime etre autour d'eux.(I like to be around them so I "can pick their brain" (an expression.) Translate please.
=> JE PEUX PROFITER DE LEUR SCIENCE.
FOR MY THESIS I HAVE READ SOME WORKS ON MYTHS MADE BY JUNG. IT IS INTERESTING.

J'ai lu QUE les écrivaIns sont réponsAbleS DE neologismEs (new words or phrases) dans la dictionnaire.  Pourquoi S4eNNUYER AVEC çA quand le plupart DES GENS COMPRENDRAIENT PAS (oops, forgot to bring my verb book) ce que ca veux dire.

Lequel (Which) a le SON LE plus mélodique ou QUI EST LE PLUS AGRéABLE  pour l'oreille, "flummox ou perplex"  He was flummoxed by their remark. Je le donne un Booooooo!  Mais He was perlexed by their remark.   I give it a "yay!

=> I AGREE! FLUMMOX SOUNDS LIKE A PILL FOR INTESTINAL PROBLEMS! LOL!


I HOPE THIS HELPS
