  1. 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!
  2. 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!!!!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  5. 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.....................
  6. 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.
