  1. We watched both the Carol Drinkwater and the Brits in France programmes last night for the first time. If viewed with some tolerance for people who are not experts on France or cannot speak perfect French, but are making the best of their life here without becoming serial complainers, we found both programmes entertaining and interesting.
  2. It seems from my search on line that this is not so. Someone posted it on Facebook on - April 1st.
  3. Well, what a resounding improvement the new format is. For the benefit of the semi-literate, that is a sarcastic comment. Most people have disappeared and being replaced by spammers and trolls.
  4. Get another plumber to look at it. Flushing mechanisms are not normally specific to particular toilets, and with perhaps a little experience and imagination it should be possible to fit one which is available.
  5. He can get insurance from Andrew Copeland [url]http://www.andrewcopeland.co.uk/green_card_motor.html[/url]

    If asked for "papers|" show the gendarmes/police his UK Passport and the Green card supplied.

  7. If he or she has so much income that they are still liable to pay the full taxe d'habitation they can probably afford to pay it...............

    So, overall, it's absolutely incredible that these 'normal' disjoncteurs

    are the accepted norm, when the automatically resetting type would

    resolve all of these issues.[/quote]

    [quote user="AnOther"]

    In

    any case an automatic reset rather defeats the object, remember the

    prime purpose of the  disjoncteur is to protect within the property and

    if a fault develops there which causes it to trip having it

    automatically reset itself is not really the best idea is it ?

    I, too, have been wondering about the apparent inability of some people to think things through, AnO.

    So

    your visiting small grandchild sticks its finger into a mains socket,

    but fortunately the differential trip (let's use the correct terms, eh.)

    operates, and disconnects the power before any serious harm is done.

    But then, in desmo's ideal world, the trip keeps resetting until the child is tits up.
