  1. Has anyone made contact with her by phone??
  2. Our house is called "Chante Merle" ... can't say I've seen that many blackbirds around .... we are in a small hamlet and ours is the only one with a name, others zre known by the owner's family names.
  3. Only connecting to the Forum .... Happy New year 2022 everyone (we have until the 31st to present our best wishes ...). Health and happiness to all.
  4. ..... they are having you on ....
  5. Nope .... Aveyron river's level rising though.
  6. Hello everyone. Very up-and-down year so far and only just catching up with you all. In deed .... Where is Mint ?
  7. Taxe d'Habitation: To be paid even if house is not lived in. House must be "entirely empty of all furniture" to qualify for NIL tax. You will need to provide a letter from your Mairie confirming your house is either empty of all furniture or inhabitable due to it being in a very bad state of repair. Danny.s isse above is different to yours.
  8. OBD = On Board Diagnostic to do with reading of pollution emissions. To be looked at of course (could be a faulty sensor ...) sometime called the Lambda Sensor. Let us know. Thanks.
  9. So so expensive for viewing glasses in France and this has always been the case. My mother came to visit us in the UK 3 or 4 years ago and I took her to Asda for a new pair. Think to remember she paid £100 for the test/frame and prescription lenses. I had to post them to her as she had returned back home when we got the call from the very friendly assistant. She was happy with the whole thing.
  10. Roses ..... who wants to cultivate roses ...?? If you have managed to read the info all the way, it clearly says that a thick walled narrow garden is much better than any greenhouse protection. Gardeners could achieve a temperature difference of 8c to 10c between walled gardens and outside non-protected areas.
  11. Hi all. Following in mint's footsteps, a very interesting link with old postcards and a Parisian fruit growing fact that I wasn't aware of. All in French I'm afraid. https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/fr/2015/12/fruit-walls-urban-farming.html?fbclid=IwAR2PbKW0UYnoWKBpNLr2dd13WuECJUg-OiUVrT2wVmlURAN45SEH5zsjdtw
  12. I agree with Sue56. The best way out is to contact them by phone (contact details on the document you received). If your French isn't up to it, do find someone who can explain your situation clearly (nothing worse than someone trying to explain such a serious situation in broken French).
  13. I used to travel inside India pretty regularly. Wild peacocks would sometime fly over the road from one field to another, above passing traffic.
  14. €30 price seems ok .... Enjoy !
  15. Strange as at first you were not on ..... saw you facing the old man with the white cap. Fancy that !!! When was that taken ?
