  1. They'll be running on the school ground so why worry about the helf and sefty one  [:D]
  2. To find the VAT element in a total amount of the facture you do : Total amount of facture divided by 1.196 if the VAT is at 19.6% or 1.150 if at 15% or 1.055% if VAT at 5.5% What ever the result of this will be the net amount of the facture, then multiply this net amount by 0.196 (19.6%) or 0.115 (15%) or 0.055 (5%) which will show the actual VAT amount.  
  3. Et peut-être que demain serait le cas de la grenouille qui veut être plus grosse que le boeuf ?  [;-)] 
  4. Looks like Wooly was right  after all ...   From the France Inter/Info website >>> Les syndicats confirment l’action du 19 mars Les huit fédérations syndicales ont donc décidé de poursuivre la lancée sociale du 29 janvier. Elles jugent les mesures du sommet social insuffisantes et appellent à des manifestations et des grèves. Comme le disait les leaders syndicaux au soir du sommet social, "le compte n’y est pas". Réunies ce matin au siège de la CFTC, les huit confédérations syndicales ont donc décidé de signer un nouvel appel pour une journée de mobilisation interprofessionnelle le 19 mars avec "grèves et manifestations dans tout le pays". Elles espèrent que le mouvement sera encore "plus fort" que le 29 janvier. Entre un et deux millions et demi de personnes avaient défilé dans les rues ce jour là lors de cette première grande mobilisation. CGT, CFDT, FO, CFTC, CFE-CGC, FSU, Unsa (autonomes) et Solidaires (dont les syndicats Sud) estiment que les mesures du sommet social du 18 février "sont trop parcellaires pour modifier le cap économique". Les syndicats estiment qu’il n’y a qu’une légère inflexion du gouvernement. Ils critiquent aussi l’ "attitude dogmatique du patronat". Le refus d’augmentation du Smic, de revenir sur la défiscalisation des heures supplémentaires et sur les 30.000 suppressions de postes dans la Fonction publique sont leurs principales récriminations. Une nouvelle réunion intersyndicale est prévue le 20 mars, au lendemain de la journée de mobilisation. Les syndicats estiment que les rendez vous sociaux ne sont pas assez préparés et ils se sont félicités de leur unité.<<< Ah well....  one should always listen to our elders [:D]
  5. No! Wooly's getting ready as he thinks the boche is by the Maginot line ready to invade [;-)]
  6. [quote user="NormanH"]Frankly I don't care and I don't see any reason to post this on a Forum about France. [/quote]   What's got your goat? It may be a forum about France but it doesn't mean that contributors can't think of other issues as well, especially as this one is in the English language that some of you seem to be wailing hi and lo to not being able to speak with the natives !  
  7. About 18months to 2 years ago I watched a TV program about this family. The woman was actually pregnant with their latest when they were explaining their case. The program finished on the woman saying that they were off to Ireland to have this new baby to 'protect' it and themselves from the various court cases against them ... 
  8. [quote user="giantpanda"]   ...  remember that in the past countries have also had negative interest .... [/quote]   Remember ?...  When ?... Where?... Unless it was in a corrupt african country or a country from behind the iron curtain, then I don't remember about negative interest this side of 1958. Innocently yours [:$] 
  9. No we don't ! Most of the work I do for this British company is to do with retail outlets that are situated in France.  Most of the work is dealt with Email/phonecall/internet but some of it (about 30%) relies on both countries postal systems and both are just as SSSSLOOOOOOWWWW as each other to the point that over the Xmas period (certainly since the beginning of December - ruddy Xmas cards!) mail that would have taken at the most one week to reach UK or to reach France at any other normal time, has taken well over 3 weeks in the hands of these 'governements bodies'. But the same mailings with any other private consortium channels went quicker whether I sent things over to France or things came from France. So I say : Privatise the British and the French postal system and let them get their behinds roasted by the like of TNT or UP and things might move a little faster...    
  10. >>FROM: John Benson.( Acting Human Resources Director ) TO: All Employees DATE: 26th October 2008 RE: Pauline Lewis and Holiday Party I'm sure I speak for all of us in wishing Pauline a speedy recovery, and I'll continue to forward your cards to her. In the meantime, the Management has decided to cancel our Holiday Party and instead, give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd December off with full pay. John Benson.<<   From : Missy (Trainee Financial Accoutant) To : ALL Date : what's the date today!? I didn't register this morning [Www] Re : Holiday Party I suggest that every one endowed with the Xmas voucher from the company is to spend the afternoon off on full pay at the Dogs and everyone should be happy. No laws in any creed against betting (or watching the dogs running) is there .... If someone could pass a hat round that we get Pauline some flowers to wish her well. [:D]        
  11. [:D][:D][:D]   It's all brown in the end anyway ...
  12. [quote user="Puzzled"] "It's not discrimination. ......     I love that bit, do you think the zoo were worried that they may have to answer to Peter Tatchell ?[:D] [/quote]  Mandy Mendelsohn would empathise with that lot, he was casted away but came back in later ... and again ... and again .... 
  13. Iach y da !   (phonetically : yar ri dah)  in the interest of good translation [;-)]  This one too : http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/south_east/4794753.stm If you need the bog your need to watch out for the sign: cyfleusterau . Taught my father to pronounce it phonetically as 'sifflotière à eau' which (if you know your french) it is the 'posh slang' for the pissoir  [:D]   
  14. Cat ask : Yes, but where does it end?   Do you think that he will have a stamp made with his ugly head on, in the same kind of format to the british stamp where the Queen's head makes it legal tender. Can't imagine half of the french population licking the backside of it [+o(]     >>More worryingly, once Sarko wins responsibility for choosing and appointing the heads of France TV <<  Isn't that how the big wig at the Beeb gets his job? ... through government ?... 
  15. [quote user="Megan le Fey"]   did Missy's OH's Ianto come home?   [/quote] Sorry I am answering to a VERY old post!! Can't remember if I did reply to that so forgive me 'pour radotter' I am just getting senile in my old age ... Just wanted to say that yes Ianto did come back a week later. He had been stolen by someone staying in the caravan park a couple of miles up the valley from us.  OH was still frantically searching for him a week on !! Anyway he saw this dog tied up by a caravan and both beast and master recognised each other and a heck of a hullaballoo ensued with the fat lady from the caravan!! No way it was our dog! it was HERS!! etc... A couple of hours later she turns up at our door with her little girl in floods of tears and the dog. Would we consider selling the dog as the little girl has fallen head over heels in love with it. No was the answer and nothing in the worl would make OH change his mind. Anyway reluctantly the woman leaves the dog and goes away with little girl still in tears. All is well that ends well ! .... Not quite ... The fat woman and little girl on leaving our place went to the police station (they were lucky that someone was in attendance!!) and put in a complaint that OH was rude and AGGRESSIVE!! towards them ... When the copper turned up at the house with that complaint OH went bezerk and told the copper ALL about the fat woman and the dog stealing incident. Anyway Ianto resumed life at his master's side until this last summer when he became quite ill, progressively blind and incontinent and in September went to the big doggy kingdom upstairs. Mourning is still in place in the household but no other dog to replace ... as yet ...
