  1. Not hereabouts they haven't .. they all arrived last weekend for the Toussaint holidays. So the next few weeks will be busy here in Morbihan.
  2. I always advise people who receive dodgy mails, or even questionable mails, to hover their cursor over the link and copy the address into Google/Duck Duck Go .. whichever search engine they use and do a quick search. If anything at all suspicious comes up then on no account click to open on any link. You could forward the mail to CPAM .. but I have forgotten their phishing address. Otherwise delete it.
  3. That makes sense .. you are aware of that but other, more unwary souls might not realise and be tempted to reply. If you click on the link in a mail it does alert the sender of the mail that you have opened the mail and that your email is alive and kicking and that has a value.
  4. Norman I don't know enough about Linux to be able to reply accurately ref your personal computer. But this link (it's ok ?) from Malwarebytes explains about part of the link access address at the top of the page you showed : https://blog.malwarebytes.com/detections/plesk-page/ Also at the top of your link page you have 'distracted-elbakyan' as part of the address .. which has been half-inched from the infamous Alexandre Elbakyan .. wiki link : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexandra_Elbakyan It looks as though the phishing attempt is quite a humorous example .. cleverly done, but still out to deceive.
  5. But might you not have alerted them to the fact that your email address is live by clicking on a link .. the phishers have no need to install anything on your system.
  6. Hang on in there Wooly .. you might have to wait til Monday, as it is now the weekend, but there are those of us who will back you and Hoddy if this Peter (Raven) doesn't come up with some useful hints.
  7. Ah Wooly does that mean it is raining with you ? We had a mini spider invasion here last night which usually means it is going to rain .. and it is ?
  8. As neither Hoddy nor Wooly appear to have informed about the new website before it arrived I rather think that they might have lost the message contact they had previously with Complete France Admin .. just guessing at that.
  9. This must be so frustrating for you both .. it does appear to be very limiting software.
  10. The forum is receiving posts from unknown people who are promoting smthg .. either their services, their company or 'n'importe quoi'. Some posters/readers might be happy to see these posts ..but others might not, including me. As none of these posts here been removed I can only assume that Wooly and Hoddy have no power/authority to verify/authorise these new posters. This, if a true view of their position, worries me. This new site is very odd .. ok I understand it is 'off the shelf' .. but it is reminiscent, to me, of smthg akin to a bizarrely extruded form of a Twitter a/c.
  11. Interestingly enough a 'bassin' can be lots of things .. including your pelvis. From Word Reference .. https://www.wordreference.com/fren/bassin Basin, pool, pond and bedpan. Piscine .. pool, swimming pool, swimming baths.
  12. a pied is a plant .. so 3 kg will feed up to 120 plants.
  13. Why would you spend that much on a temporary kitchen in a rental property ? Here in France you can buy an attractive, functional kitchen for around €1000 .. so why spend more ? Follow Lori's advice and don't buy fitted units then you can take the kitchen with you or you can sell the units on ☺️
  14. I can see the latest posts in Activity .. All Activity If I can find my way back there ..
  15. A bit of notice would have good .. Gordon Bennett it's very American style or is it FarceBook style ?
  16. Although Boursorama is a Banque it is an online Bank, which mean free accounts, cards etc and low charges for its stockmarket connected dealings. It is not a traditional Bricks and Mortar Bank. From Wiki .. Since its creation, the website Boursorama.com has been the French leader in online information about the stock market, aimed at both individual investors and professionals. My words .. It was only later it moved into online Banking to be able to offer a complete package.
  17. It seems that tracker funds are 'fonds indiciel' .. 'trackers' also exist. I invest online via Boursorama and trust them so perhaps have a look there or phone them, they were helpful when I needed advice. https://www.boursorama.com/bourse/actualites/trackers-15-fonds-indiciels-cotes-pour-votre-portefeuille-942e9965245fe824f40ce78989fb28d3 https://www.boursorama.com/bourse/actualites/investissez-en-bourse-a-prix-casses-grace-a-ces-trackers-de-nouvelle-generation-2f66e8ea140b58799c49b41a7f332db5 https://www.boursorama.com/patrimoine/actualites/accessibles-en-assurance-vie-les-fonds-indiciels-connaissent-une-popularite-croissante-75a0feb1198651c4a9ab928dfdb50539 If you are both under 70 and have children then money invested via an Assurance Vie has added tax benefits as regards passing on your inheritance. Edit: You will have to copy and paste as the links are not live. Wise will transfer money very cheaply .. or open up Wise accounts in € and in £ and your problem is sorted even more cheaply.
  18. This site can be quite helpful, after you have declined or otherwise their cookies .. https://www.toutsurmesfinances.com/vie-pratique/a/chasse-le-calendrier-et-les-regles-a-respecter Scroll down and choose your department. Always remembering that if you have wild boar (we do hereabouts) then they have the right to organise a cull on any day of the week. Edit .. sorry I am using an Android tablet .. you will have to copy and paste.
  19. Astonishing .. I wasn't expecting that amount of greenery. So much to be admired. Following the Seine .. t'is such a simple idea .. resulting in a such an interesting programme.
  20. Ken wrote the following post at 21 Aug 2021 18:04: I sonder if people have done any real reeearch into this. Being eco is one thing, being gullible is something else!!! Who are you addressing in your post Ken .. just who is gullible and why ? Judging by the spelling in your post you have been at the apéros ..
  21. There is also E15 which has 15% ethanol .. apparently most recent petrol engines can cope with this. Whether it is good for the engine in the long term .. we'll have to wait and see.
  22. mrsblack wrote the following post at 12 Aug 2021 15:59: Our Avis has arrived and despite being retired SI holders and noting that we are exempt from these social charges, we have been charged. As pomme says it is difficult to comment without knowing more of your situation but .. Have you noted the amount of what you included as income that CSG etc has been charged on against what amount Psol has been charged on ? There could be a clue there.
  23. mint wrote the following post at 06 Aug 2021 21:04: What I would like to confirm is, what if I didn't have a pass? If you cannot have a jab, or do not want one, so do not have a pass then your access to non-urgent medical care is via a negative PCR test less than 48 hours old. This is what my elderly friend has to do as her MT won't let her be jabbed because of her frailty.
  24. And along comes the contentious issue of the card being not only in French but in English .. just like the Brexit carte de séjour.
  25. I got 5 too .. a mix of guessing and working out if I didn't recognise the word/phrase.
