  3. Hi So far in 10 years have got through 3, 2 blown-up by lightning even with a surge jobby ,one where the battery burnt out, 2 of them where not fast enough and the puter always rebooted If you are lucky you get 3 minutes running a modem, puter and screen just enough to shut down and the bleeping during a night storm/power cut wakes the grave I am on the forth cobling a battery from one with electronics of another

    frost line

    It was a quick measure 9 years back my water supply was 5 foot in the air in metal pipes when I arrived most frosty mornings I had to take a blow lamp to a 20 foot length to have flowing water. I replaced the length with plastic only a few inches deep The idea was to bury them deeper when the ground thawed I never got around to it and not once has the supply failed
  6. If its smells then something is alive I dont think capping it will do the trick, where is the water coming from
  7. dave21478 said Obvious Troll is obvious. No French person asks a brit expat forum for affairs relating to French administration - especially affairs that 99% of members will not encounter. Oh and the written English is not even remotely close to what a 19 year old French person would use I disagree Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people,[1] by posting inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[4 He has not upset anyone OK he is young but caused no offence How do you know 99%of posters have never been in a similar position If his parent/parents were English I would have expected a knowledge of two languages I think you are being rather harsh There is no need to reply if you think he is a fake

  9. Hi Your are obviously in love, but do not dive in you admit you have made a bad choice in studies and wasted a year What if the marriage does not work I suggest you talk to her embassy or your own French embassy for details Your English is very good
  10. Hi My first port of call in France 18 years back was Juillac North of Objat north of Brive It was ('cus I left 9 years ago ) a great area but the problem was too many Brits and Dutch I gather from old friends they are pulling up sticks now and going home There are lots of ex-pats properties for sale at inflated prices Weather in early spring cold and wet If I returned to that area which is unlikely as I now live close to the Pyrenees Tulle would be my choice
  11. Hi I not sure if they are mandatory but for over 10 years my right hand dive car with one rear fog light has passed a CT
