  2. I'm in a funny position.

    I left UK in 1990, lived in Belgium, USA (Briefly), Sweden, and have been in France for 7 years.

    I am self employed here : my French wife has a full time job. I work in UK a few times each year : Yes, I like the pubs, they all tend to understand English (and even Polish in the hotels these days !),  shops are open when I need to shop, it is easy to have the foods I remember from my youth, and I can sort out any problems in English.

    But : people say that taxes are very high ( I still think they are less than France), booze is expensive, don't talk about cigs, fuel is expensive, the  motorways are overcrowded, good restaurants & hotels are expensive, everyone talks about house prices and the weather is crap !

    I'm open minded. If I had to move back, I would want to be in a rural area near a city (same as for the last 30 years). I could never go back to the London sprawl. I'd have to live in a smaller house, take expensive holidays to see the sun, and change my life.

    The only real problem for me is the if I could live with "little islander" mentality : foreigners are greasy - we are the best in the world - the BBC is independent- the only ones with honest policeman and without corruption are the Brits, etc.

    Am I a stateless person ?


  3. For the Reveillon, we met a group of people we have been spending NY with for the last 7 years. Originally we all went to the village bash, but can't face it these days : starter served after midnight, coffee and liqueurs at 07.00, very loud live music.

    For the last couple of years our group have had their own do. We started by each taking one course to the venue. One of the group is renovating a 12thC chateau, and we hold it there. This year, we had all the food prepared by a traiteur.

    Rather civilised this year, it started at 20.00, we left at 03.00 ..... and no trace of a hangover !

    Weather here is warm, clear and sunny.



  4. [img]http://www.the-languedoc-page.com/images/aurora-borealis.jpg[/img]

    Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) occur in the high northern lattitudes. They are quite rare but spectacular.
    They are sometimes seen as far South as UK. Not sure they get down this far.

    My friends in Sweden have set up a webcam using a fish eye lens to record the sky.
    The  resulting images, over 24 hours have been reduced to a couple of minutes.

    See the images [url=http://the-languedoc-page.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=864]here.[/url]

    Needs ADSL, or an awful lot of patience !

  6. Hi


    just to say humidity is different to rainfall. You only experience going from dry to humid. UK, generally has high humidity, so most Brits on holiday don't notice the difference.

    To experience real humidity go to Singapore, or Detroit in August.

    The French Atlantic coast has high humidity because of the prevailing winds off the sea. Inland areas may be drier.

    Only the Med inland areas have dry air : http://www.the-languedoc-page.com/photos/languedoc-photo-024.htm .

  9. Hi

    just an update on the current position.

    Wednesday Nimes-Luton :

    Arrived 2hr 30 min before take off, and the check in queue was very long.
    Security was quick, no special restrictions other than no liquids and a body search. All hand luggage was sniffed by a dog in the departure lounge, then another rapid body search before getting on the plane.

    The plane was 45 mins late.

    Sunday Luton-Nimes :

    There was a document check and briefing for all passengers entering the check in area. I arrived 2hr 30 min before take off and the check in had not opened. After buying a newspaper and coffee, the check in was open and I was behind 100+ people.

    Plenty of announcements and notices covered the new rules. A precheck before security put mobile phones into a clear plastic bag. Security was quick. Laptops were x-rayed separately. All shoes removed and x-rayed.

    The plane was 15 minutes late.

    Note for smokers :

    No lighters or matches allowed, but the shops airside had lighters for sale.
    The staff smoking area near the departure gates was in use by staff who were happy to provide a light !


  10. Following a security alert this was introduced today.


    I guess this will be a problem for many people.

    I carry laptop, files etc in hand luggage so that I can work even if my hold luggage is lost. The hand luggage weighs 9.8kg.

    Will the weight limits for hold luggage be temporarily increased ?
    How long will it last (I have a project next week) ?
    Why does Ryanair not mention it on their website ?
    Will it be applied to UK inward flights as well as outward flights ?
