  4. Hi........I think I read somewhere that the gov are offering a 25% discount on CG in 2014..........or did I dream it ? If anyone can point me in the right direction would be grateful W
  5. Hi Quillan Have you got a link to the list(s). Thanks W
  6. Thanks for all the replies. I'd better Pop into the bank. W
  7. Hi We bank with Banque Populaire. I have been away for 3 days and Mrs W bought some books on Amazon.fr with our CC. A couple of ours later Amazon mailed to say payment declined. She called the bank and they told her that an SMS message was required, or something, in order for the payment to be authorised. The amount was 20 euros and there were more than sufficient funds in the account. Does anyone know anything about this procedure, I don't remember receiving anything in the post re this situation. Thanks for any comments. W
  8. TV is about 8 years old and takes around 30 minutes to warm up ie it starts with green lines then an overexposed picture which gradually adjusts to normal. For the past few days we have had an intermittent no signal, hence no picture, on all beeb channels, whereas ITV seems to work fine. Question is this because the TV is nackered or something to do with the signal/dish problem. We are going to buy a new TV (any recommendations) it's just a question as to when. At the moment le Tour on ITV4 is fine but BBC 1 is off and on like a yoyo. Any advice gratefully received. Thanks W
  9. I changed my UK licence 27th December 2012, was given a temporary one...................I'm still waiting for the real thing. W
  10. Personally I'd just get on with it. I wouldn't declare anything to anyone. Why complicate matters, a Frenchman certainly wouldn't and neither would I. You just have to stick to the 90 day thing. W
  11. Be quite interesting if people went to their respective mairie's and asked for the regs............wonder if we'd all get the same answer ? W
  12. It's an immigration problem that successive Swedish governments didn't see coming. They opened their borders in the '70s to various immigrants, but failed to assimilate them in a worthwhile manner, now they are paying the price, bit similar to Blair's mc bullshit. My wife, on a recent visit, was somewhat surprised that the taxi driver couldn't speak svenska.
  13. Quillan..........thanks for the speedy response. W
