  1. I am not known for laughing much before my second coffee of the morning, but this photo had me creased well before- enjoy!😁
  2. Just a thought.............why have so many sports people taken to screaming and opening their faces like squabbling baboons when winning a point, or a game of whatever sport they are involved in? It is not a good look! One wonders what Darwin would have made of it. Maybe it's just the heat making me grumpy.😡
  3. Here in South Haute-Vienne.............too warm ! 30° indoors - ouch. Promise of a stiff Northerly breeze on Friday to reduce temperatures, but no sign of rain..........
  4. Responding to my own post...............erm.............where did the photo come from on my post ? Not my doing.........albeit a nice photo.
  5. Testing, testing 1, 2, 3...............14h39
  6. Now, we don't watch much UK TV for so many reasons, but recently chatted about old adverts and a couple sprang to mind - for any youngsters on this forum - this is how it was done - not your split second frame, flash, idiots throwing themselves around nonsense that passes for an advert today. None of the current adverts will ever be remembered - hopefully.............. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGg4uhGfgB0 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zh8iXc2d71U Discuss ?
  7. There is one website that I know of which may prove interesting and scary at the same time to members. https://www.lightningmaps.org/?lang=fr#x=4.2517;m=oss;r=0;t=3;s=0;o=0;b=0.00;n=0;y=44.7389;z=6;d=2;dl=2;dc=0;ts=0; The map is zoomable by scrolling your mouse wheel or the + and - top left of screen. Enjoy !
  8. I'm sure the more- ahem!- elderly amongst us thought that Mr Gates et al peaked with Windows 7................
  9. Sadly, yes, ditto! That makes 4............. Sorry?
  10. I know of a person who does French tax returns for a living as well as translations etc. and the rate that she is using for this year - I expect directly from the Tax office in dept 24 - is 1,14989. Hope she's right...............that's the figure that I have used this year.
  11. Another thank you from me Norman. Excellent film. Intereresting to see that there were still horses and carts amongst the new fangled motor cars ?
  12. Hi, Either go and see the bank, or they will do it via e-mail (secure messaging) (we did this). Explain the situation, and they will increase your monthly payment allowance.................of course they will charge you for this - in our case in 2019 it was 11€ to have our limit increased for a period of 12 months. Or they may offer you a card with greater spending limits - that will cost a few euros too. Oh, how I miss free banking in UK - been here 18 years ? Hope that helps, Tony
  13. Two French films that we have watched and thoroughly enjoyed, if you can find them, are "Jean de Florette" and the sequel "Manon des sources". Both show the rural French and their ways - good and bad.
  14. When they asked me if I wanted a booster, I asked for a 10 year old single malt whisky over ice............?
  15. Thanks Cajal - great!! Is that you playing or a certain Mr Satriani? Either way, good wishes to all.
  16. Take the quiz and let's see hey ? https://www.francebleu.fr/infos/societe/miss-france-2022-reussirez-vous-le-quiz-de-culture-generale-1637835076?xtmc=miss france quiz&xtnp=1&xtcr=6 Enjoy.
  17. And let's not forget..........I was like and he was like and he went and I went. This was supposed to represent a conversation of sorts!
  18. Not sure that we will be watching either of them again, having watched the first ones, particularly the first pathetic offering, followed by an egotistical name dropper for the second program..........just our opinion of course.?
  19. Excellent job!!! From another player of these instruments...........
  20. Another idea............once logged in save the address that appears in your navigation bar as a favourite link, then next time, just click the saved link. It should look something like this https://forum.completefrance.com/index.php?/discover/&view=expanded No need to click various links on the new site then. Works with Chrome and Firefox - so far;-) Hope this helps . Tony
