  1. Perfect - thank you Clair [kiss]

  2. Is there an equivalent product here in France?

  3. Hi Pogo,

    www.leboncoin.fr is a france-wide classified advert site where one can advertise articles free of charge. There's quite a lot of reasonable stuff on there but some people's expectations of price are a little high!

    cheers

  5. If you have your own canoe it should not cost anything. I am not aware of any organised canoe rental available on the Gartempe (though I am looking). I know that the Gartempe is classed as I and II which I believe is the most gentle. If I find any more info I'll let you know. I did find someone selling a number of second hand (ex-rental I assume) canoes on leboncoin for between 50 and 100 euros which was rather tempting. The other thing to find out is where public access can be found on the river, I was going to make enquiries at tourist info soon. Let me know if you have any success, won't you?

    cheers

  6. Other places to visit around that area are Collonges la Rouge and Salers. Both of them worth a trip. Otherwise just bimble on the back roads, they're lovely. Another place to find is (are) the Tours de Merle.

  7. It's an ordinary FTA satellite box. As suggested, I tried another region, so we now have access again to ITV1! As you say, it's a bit strange that they have not got their act together.

    cheers

  8. My satellite box is reporting that ITV 1 is scrambled! Is this a permanent change or just a local anomaly with my setup?

    cheers

  9. try  http://www.narbonneaccessoires.fr/info/

  10. Thank you both for your replies. Jerac, that was very helpful, I can identify the machine properly! Typically, though, the bit that I have identified as being perfect for the task at hand is the wrong type!

    cheers

  11. What is the difference and are the bits interchangeable? I have an SDS drill but I would not know how to determine whether it was Max or Plus! Any ideas?

    Many thanks

  12. [quote user="Martinwatkins"]

    Stormy weather doesn't help - the carrier frequencies used for ADSL are plagued by what I think are called sferics,  if a medium wave radio is crackling then your ADSL is going to be "under siege"  (assuming you're fed by overhead lines).

    Are these related to atmospherics?

  13. Thank you both - I'll now go and buy one!

  14. Can anyone tell me what the French is for Inner Tube?

    many thanks

    Steve
