  1. Easyjet buys GB Airways, will fly Gatwick - Montpellier ?


    The report also says that BA will operate some of these routes themselves.

    I'm not sure that they will attempt to do Montpellier. Once their monopoly on flights to this region was eroded (c 1999) they have consistently reduced the service.

    But, a new foothold for Easyjet, presuming they keep the Montpellier route.

    If so, maybe they will consider other routes. They are quite active in flights from Scotland, Newcastle, and Belfast (also EMA, Luton, Stansted, Liverpool and Bristol, but they won't want to compete with existing Ryanair routes ?).

    Interesting times !

  2. Now is the time to pick green olives - wait until Xmas if you prefer them black.

    We have four 100+ years old picholine olive trees in the garden. Not a great crop this year, and quite a lot of insect infestation.

    So :

    1)Pick olives

    2)Grade by size

    3)reject those with insect holes

    4)Cure olives separately


    The reason they are sorted by size is that the best become olives for  aperitifs, the others end up as tapenade.

    Curing :

    You will see on the net that everyone has there own recipe for curing olives. We've tried the salt only recipes and not had such good results.

    Our most succesful treatment uses sodium hydroxide - caustic soda - lessive de soudre. This sounds pretty drastic, but is the most commonly used curing technique here in Languedoc.

    Essentially the olives are immersed in a sodium hydroxide solution, then rinsed over several days, then bottled in brine with various additives and herbs.

    Different treatments have different strengths of caustic hydroxide, and different techniques.

    Ours is :

    Immerse the olives in a 3% solution of sodium hydroxide (you normally buy it as 30% - so it is diluted 1 to 9 with water).

    After about 6 hours take an olive, cut it in two and check the colour of the flesh. When you can see the colour change has reached the stone, rinse in  cold water and then immerse in clean water.

    Rinse over several days until the water remains clear for 12 hours ( this could take 5 or 6 days).

    Then bottle the olives in a 5% salt solution with a drop of olive oil on the top of the liquid. You can add herbs de provence, chillis etc to flavour the olives.

    Bonne chance

  3. [quote user="Ian"]I'm pretty sure you are light a few Toulouse routes: I don't follow these things with any great scrutiny, but I have flown from Toulouse to quite a selection of destinations not mentioned: Frankfurt, Brussels, Munich, Amsterdam, Dusseldorf, Prague, Geneva,  Lisbon, Paris CDG and  Nice.  I also have seen flights for Metz, Crete, Dominican Republic, Casablanca, Rome, Milan et al advertised.

    At least one of the flights listed is a connection (TLS-Glasgow, I'm pretty sure you can't fly this direct) - if you include flights with a connection almost the whole world opens up.

    Thanks for the service, Ian


    I try to include the direct routes of the cheap airlines. They change rapidly, and some are infrequent or summer only.

    I can't find the direct Glasgow - Toulouse flight now either !

    There is an ongoing discussion here


  4. By email from Transport for London :

    Dear Languedocpage,

    Please see the press release below. We want to ensure as many

    ex-pats as possible are aware of the closure and its effect on the

    Stansted Express terminals. We will try and contact as many expat

    websites and newsletters as possible but would you be able to also

    circulate it around expat websites please?

    Any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Disruption to be minimised during Christmas engineering works at Liverpool Street Station

    -Work vital to £1.4bn transformation of London's rail network

    Transport for London has today outlined plans for a vital

    engineering project to replace a dilapidated bridge near Liverpool

    Street Station. The 120-year-old iron and brick structure is so large

    it will take 10 days to carry out demolition, and means that Liverpool

    Street Station will need to close for the duration.

    The work is being carried out as part of a £1.4 billion investment

    that will see the huge improvements to London's rail network including

    the rebuilding and extension of the East London Line as part of the new

    London Overground network. The station will be closed from 23 December

    2007 and will re-open at 4am on 2 January 2008, in time for people to

    get back to work after the Christmas break.

    Closing the station at this time will affect fewer people than at

    any other time in the year, with passenger numbers typically between 40

    and 80 per cent down compared to normal days. A wide range of

    alternative travel arrangements will be available over the period to

    enable passengers to complete their journeys, and compensation packages

    will be offered to local residents affected by the work.

    Where possible, Transport for London has sought to retain original

    structures when developing the East London Line. This has been possible

    in the case of the Victorian bridge at Kingsland, but is not feasible

    at Liverpool Street. Engineers carried out a significant investigation

    into the retaining the bridge, but the structure is no longer fit for

    purpose and its position is unsuitable for the direction of the new

    East London Line tracks.

    When the East London Line is complete it will reopen in a hugely

    improved and extended form, running from Dalston in the north to West

    Croydon in the south. Part of the integrated London Overground network,

    it will be linked to a revitalised North London Railway, and served by

    brand new high-fequency trains connecting 20 of the capital's 33


    Julie Dixon, Head of Stakeholder Engagement, Transport for London,

    said: “This work is vital to the completion of the East London Line

    that, as part of London Overground, will radically improve the

    capital's transport network. We recognise that it will impact on

    passengers and local residents over these 10 days, but we will be going

    to every possible length to ensure that disruption is kept to a


    “We are offering various alternative routes and are letting

    everyone know in good time. Residents affected by the work are being

    fully informed and consulted, and those affected will be offered

    temporary accommodation, double-glazing to protect them from noise and

    dust, and other forms of compensation.

    “Although we try to retain existing structures, it is simply not

    possible in this case as the bridge is in a terrible state of disrepair

    and is in the wrong position for the East London Line tracks.

    Unfortunately the improvements can only be carried out when the station

    is shut, and the work has therefore been scheduled for over the

    Christmas period, when the smallest number of passengers will be


    A Network Rail spokesperson said:

    “We are working closely with Transport for London to minimise

    disruption and to give the travelling public the information that they

    need to plan their journeys this Christmas.

    “We are keen to deliver the maximum benefit for passengers during

    the closure. Network Rail will therefore also be carrying out £7m of

    other improvements, which will mean better train services in and out of

    Liverpool Street Station in the future”.

    At the same time as these improvements, Network Rail will carry out

    a programme of upgrade work, including the renewal of overhead lines

    and track, which will mean better train services in and out of

    Liverpool Street Station in the future.

    Notes to Editors

    · The bridge, known as GE19, is 120 years old and has been out of

    use for decades. This means that unlike many other great Victorian

    engineering structures it is no longer safe to use. It is also in the

    wrong position for the new East London Line tracks.

    · Demolition of the current bridge means removing some 12,000

    tonnes of brickwork. The new bridge is the length of three Wimbledon

    Centre Courts. It will be put into place in Spring 2008.

    · When Christmas Eve falls on a Monday, train operators carry 40

    per cent less passengers because many people have already left London

    during the weekend. During working days in the Christmas/New Year

    period passenger numbers are down 80 per cent on a normal working day.

    The timing of this work will also mean that people returning to work on

    January 2 after the holiday break, would not be disrupted.

    · Demolition of the bridge by Network Rail will cost £2m. Network Rail is also carrying out a further £7m of upgrade work.

    · Alternative routes

    - Train operator ‘one’ will be putting alternative travel

    arrangements in place and is notifying passengers by leaflets being

    distributed at stations and information on its website.

    - West Anglia and Stansted Express will start/terminate at

    Tottenham Hale, Seven Sisters and Walthamstow Central stations to allow

    interchange with the London Underground. Some trains will terminate at

    Hackney Central with passengers being passed onto Transport for London

    buses to Liverpool Street station;

    - Metro Services will terminate at Stratford with London

    Underground connections to London, which will include an enhanced

    service on the Central Line. A shuttle train service will operate to

    Brentwood, with a bus operating between Brentwood and Shenfield;

    - Southend Services will run as a train shuttle between Southend

    and Billericay with connecting buses to c2c services to Fenchurch


    - Mainline services will operate to Ingatestone where buses will

    run to and from Liverpool Street, with the exception of 27th and 28th

    December where a limited service to Stratford will operate.

    · London Underground alternative routes:

    - Victoria Line to Tottenham Hale to meet Stansted Express

    services. The Victoria Line will easily handle the increase in

    passenger numbers during this period.

    - As a precaution, Central Line services will be increased from 24 trains per hour to 30 trains per hour during the closure.

    - Jubilee Line services to Stratford will run as usual - the line easily has the capacity to handle the extra passengers.

    - There will be no engineering closures on these lines during the closure.

  5. I'm not sure that the delay is as long as L'Independent has suggested.

    It was not originally expected to open until 2011.

    This was the forecast in January 2007 :

    2007 Lorry / Rail Ro-Ro service (Perpignan-Luxemburg) in service

    2007 Figueres - Girona - Barcelona TGV line works continue

    2008 Nimes - Montpellier TGV line bypass surveying starts

    2008 Public enquiry on Montpellier - Perpignan TGV line route

    2009 Nimes - Montpellier TGV line bypass work starts

    2009 Perpignan - Figueres TGV line in service

    2011 Figueres - Girona - Barcelona TGV line in service

    2012 Nimes - Montpellier TGV line rail bypass opens

    2020 Montpellier - Perpignan dedicated TGV line in service


  6. Don't submit by post!

    There is a huge backlog of applications following the arrival of a new boss who is trying to improve the process.

    I bought a car in mid February. The dealer had to get a certificate of

    purchase before he could register the purchase in my name. He got the

    papers back last week. He is telling the truth because I can see the

    dated stamps from Gard Prefecture.

    As further (and comforting to me ) evidence, I have friends who

    bought a car in the same week as me. They submitted their papers

    through the local Mairie. They are still waiting.

    So, it is worth queueing (only English word with 5 vowels in a row ?) at the prefecture to sort it out ?

    My car came with temporary WW plates that ran out early March.

  7. Hi

    just worth saying that opening new routes isn't just borrowing an airplane and adding a new destination.

    There are considerable costs involved - local staff, airport fees and probably highest, marketing. There was a very high spend by Ryanair when they first launched services to Nimes, and later  Montpellier.

    A daily flight has an annual capacity of around 110,000 seats. More accurately, around 9000 per month. Every month winter & summer.  And they must be new customers -  no point in losing business from an existing service ?

    So, who are these 110,000 passengers who don't already fly from Montpellier, Nimes, Carcassonne, Marseille, Girona or Perpignan ?

    Some points :

    The cheap airlines only make money when flights are nearly full.

    London Montpellier used to have 3 flights/day in summer, 2/day in winter. Now it is 2 flights per day in summer and 1/day in winter. Where have those passengers gone?

    Only a couple of years ago Nimes was down to 1 flight per day in winter, and there was an active campaign to keep the airport open.

    To avoid canibalising existing customers, there is very little duplication between Marseille-Nimes, Nimes-Montpellier, etc.

    The Marseille flights are just 12 months old. Destinations have been changed twice in a bid to get better sales of the available capacity.

    You could argue there are already too many airports, too close together. They are all under an hour from the next one ?

    Ryanair already fly to the 8 reachable Languedoc airports from 43 destinations, with a capacity of around 7m seats per year.


    It would have to be a very compelling business case to invest in new routes to Beziers ?

    Buying a property on the basis of current flight schedules may not be a good idea ?



  8. I live halfway Montpellier - Nimes.

    In UK I need to get to Gatwick, Nottingham, Lancaster, Perth and Chipping Norton.

    My local flights don't often seem to work out. Either the wrong days (East Midlands) or don't fly in winter (Gatwick). Seems silly, but I've often driven Luton/Gatwick/Nottingham/Luton.

    So, I use Girona (Blackpool), Marseille (Gatwick & Prestwick).

    BTW, for urgent business, you can do a day trip to London from Marseille. There are currently 3 BA flights per day and 1 Easyjet flight. However, the early BA flights are not cheap !

    Interestingly I put this on a few forums in their Languedoc sections. It was deleted from France news because I gave the link to the latest information http://www.the-languedoc-page.com/tourism/languedoc-tourism-air.htm

    I have 6 links to their forum and website where I belive visitors can get better (or more current) information than I have.

    Curious ?



  11. The Commission Générale de Terminologie et de Néologie, or French Language Police have been busy inventing new French words.

    A worthy cause, but largely ineffective. Le Macdo, le weekend, and le foot show little signs of being abandoned.

    Many of the words are for technological innovations. However, they are

    not used in other Francophone countries. So, a Belgians "le PC", "le

    mouse", and "le keyboard" become "l'ordinateur", "le souri" and "le

    clavier" as you cross the border.

    Earlier attempts in this area have not shown the results intended.

    "Le Courriel" has not replaced "email" and there are signs that the

    French techies have evolved a new word "le mel". And "adresse de

    courrier électronique" seems a cumbersome alternative to "email


    So what has the latest "brainstorming" (or I should say "un remue-méninges") produced?

    Amongst the latest batch of new words are :

    jeunes pousses (start up)

    bloc-note (blog)

    diffusion pour baladeur (podcasting)

    débat-spectacle (chat show)

    pavé tactile (touchpad)

    poste à poste (peer to peer)

    heure de grande écoute (primetime)

    Unless of course, you happen to be in Belgium, Benin, Burkina Faso,

    Burundi, Cameroon, Canada, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros,

    Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Côte d'Ivoire,

    Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Guinea, Haiti, Luxembourg,

    Madagascar, Mali, Niger, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles, Switzerland, Togo

    or Vanuatu.

    Well, dead wood down off the trees everywhere, but no too desperate.

    The Midi Libre weather forecast (which is crap and doesn't for most of the year have to stretch itself to much more than how many degrees C the sun is going to give us), says nice and sunny tomorrow and diminishing wind. Gusting a bit outside just now, but certainly a lot quieter than last night.

    Suze - that Mistral is like an old friend - you can get to miss it when it's not been around for a while.  Lori seems to see more of it over her way (around Mt Ventoux), but over here it's only 2-3 times / yr.  The market traders really had the hump with it though in Uzes today - stuff flying everywhere.


    Many of the Sommieres market traders gave up, and packed up early today.
