  1. When they asked me if I wanted a booster, I asked for a 10 year old single malt whisky over ice............😁
  2. Thanks Cajal - great!! Is that you playing or a certain Mr Satriani? Either way, good wishes to all.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.😉
  6. copy/paste into google http://domainesale.weebly.com if the link doesn't work
  7. Excellent job!!! From another player of these instruments...........
  8. 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
  9. A good French friend of ours once mentioned the MMS joke to us many years ago.................it relates to lovemaking as the years go by.

    At first it is Matin, Midi et Soir, then Mardi, Mercredi et Samedi, then Mars, Mai et Septembre, after that it is Mes Meilleurs Souvenirs - voilà!
  10. Chessie, you couldn't make it up could you........ Bless you and we'll raise a glass to you this evening. Let's hope tomorrow is better.

  11. I could happily choke these people who prey on everybody with their scam e-mails. They are filth!! I have had similar messages wanting payment in bitcoin or my parents would be sent my webcam porn footage............duh!!! no webcam and no parents for the last 30 years! Not just these, but I regularly receive e-mails from various banks that I have no account with asking me to update my details - of course this is why we (the decent people) have to jump through hoops just to log in these days. Sickening!!!!
  12. Hi,

    Try https://www.travaux.com

    I've never used the service, so can't pass comment, but could be worth a try............
  13. As an aside, albeit academic now, looking at the final referendum results, I wonder why 17.9% did not vote...........complacency as in it will never happen, did not care either way, or just couldn't be bothered...... your thoughts ladies and gentlemen please............

    The 17,9% may have made a massive difference, we'll never know.

    Voted remain by the way.
  14. Hi NormanH,

    Thanks for making the link live and thank you for the Meteoblue link - superb!
  15. Very windy here last night in the Haute-Vienne, but no damage thankfully.

    A great link for tracking storms in real time is:


    Sorry cannot make the link live, but copy/paste into your browser.

    We work online, so can stay connected until a few minutes before any thunderstorms arrive - very useful.

  16. Excellent, thank you very much!! All done in less than a minute or two.
  17. At least here they shoot the b*****ds who commit these crimes!!!!!!!
  18. Maybe buy clothes etc. on aliexpress.com - much cheaper than N**t. Free or very cheap delivery mostly, although you do have to wait up to 3 weeks - but the anticipation makes up for it. You have to ask where n**t buy their stuff from.......

    Worth a go perhaps. They accept French cards without problems.

    Hope that helps.....................
  19. You can usually ask your notaire to take power of attorney and they will handle everything for you, whilst you are not in France.

    Hope that helps...............
  20. Haven't used this group yet..........but may be worth a look.Seems to be a specsavers sort of system.


    Anyone who has, please let us know.Thanks!
  21. This link may help.


    Sorry, using Google, so you'll have to copy/paste the link.

    It seems if the value of the goods is less than 150€ it may be exempt from VAT and other fees. We received some goods from UK with a net value of 110€ sent by Royal Mail and delivered by La Poste, and so far............We have not been asked for any payments from La Poste - watch this space.
  22. Years ago in UK I used to drive an MGBGT, glad I don't now - who knows what it may suggest :-)
