  1. Watch out with Frontline and Advantix. I used it on my dog, the first 2 times she was depressed and anxious for a few hours. The third time she had visible neurological damage and could no longer walk. We rushed her to the vet who gave medication to cleanse her liver. He had seen this before. At the time he was not sure whether she would recover completely. Luckily she did. So if your pet is showing signs of anxiety or depression, do not use it again. The reaction to this 'treatment' gets more severe every time it is administered.

    I will never use any of these products again and will try to deal with fleas and ticks in another way.

  2. I'm not American ;) but do mean the British word "garden" when I use "yard"

  3. Hello,

    We're a couple looking for a long term rural rental in the 32, 09, 11, 64 or 65.

    A

    rustic house is OK. We would like to rent a private house with a yard,

    not near a road for at least one year, preferably longer. Can be

    isolated. We work from home so it can literally be in the middle of

    nowhere.

    No gite please (unless it is very private)

    Looking to spend 400 euro/month + utilities

    Alternatively, if you have a plot of land for sale with trees or a ruin (not near a road), please contact us (max. 50K)

    Thank you

  5. Good news ! I just got off the phone with Orange and I'm a customer now.

    You don't need a French bank account: payment can be made by check or

    card.

    The installation package will be sent in 1 week but I arranged a

    technician just to be on the safe side. I can cancel him if I don't need

    him.

    Thanks for all the tips!
  6. No, no phone. There used to be a line and internet but not anymore. I tested the old number with Orange and the recognized it.

  7. Thanks for the reply.Makes me feel slightly better :)

    I tried to set it up online but don't have a French phone number and they don't accept my foreign bank account.

    I found this number for their English speaking helpline: 0033 969 36 39 00

    I'll give them a call tomorrow.

    Thanks again for the quick reply!

  8. Hi everyone,

    We're moving to France in about 2,5 weeks and would like to arrange our internet connection before we arrive. Does anyone know if this possible?

    I've tried contacting Free but can't call from here (our land line doesn't recognize the number) and my emails bounce back :( I sent them a fax as well, but haven't heard back from them.

    We don't have a bank account yet in France and there was an internet at the house before.

    Does anyone know if Orange is willing to provide this service? We'll be arriving early August and have heard it can take quite a while before they actually come.

    In case we can't pull this off: anyone aware of (affordable) roaming services till we get set up? We work over the internet, hence the slight panic :)

    All tips and suggestions are very much appreciated.

    Best regards,

    Ovidia
