  1. Neat - I'll have a look at that, Dago. [:)] I have Firefox set automatically to clean out temporary Internet files, browsing history, download history, cache and authenticated sessions when I close the browser, but something to clean out cookies selectively would be handy.
  2. I buy bastard bread every day.  Being the bastard son of a tanner's daughter gave Willy's enemies cause for a laugh until he chopped their hands off.
  3. Gerard was much more Manly than Mary. Mary sang backing vocals on Bowie's "Sound and Vision" - I think her then hubby, Tony Visconti, the record producer, dragged her in. Remember Linda Lewis?  SHE did the brilliant backing vocals on Bowie's "Panic in Detroit".
  4. You didn't REALLY take the list seriously, did you, Prasutagus?  It is obviously meant to be funny.  E.g. Scenario: Billy breaks a window in his father's car and his Dad gives him a whipping 1957 - Billy is more careful next time, grows up normal, goes to college, and becomes a successful businessman. 2007 - Billy's Dad is arrested for child abuse. Billy removed to foster care and joins a gang. Billy's sister is told by state psychologist that she remembers being abused herself and their Dad goes to prison. Billy's mom has affair with psychologist. Whether it really is funny or not is another matter. Depends if you condone whipping.  In the right place, within reason, it can be quite pleasureable.  So I'm told. [Www]
  5. I notice among the usual crud in the Junk box I get some strange messages like this one: From: arvie blondell [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: samedi 24 mars 2007 12:51 To: estrella laney Subject: Dustin Wind, sleet. The branches sway, With sun's warmth wasted on a stone, Only a whiter absence to my mind, I know, To pick up even the quickening of wind And beyond, the same sound of bees Nor, indeed, the bit of paint itself can know of.

  6. The forum had similar problems with IE7 when it came out and they fixed that.  I don't know why it can't be fixed for Safari users.
  7. We holidayed there a few years ago after seeing a Volvic advert on TV, for no other reason than I liked the shape of the volcanoes.  We enjoyed it very much. I recommend the regional Michelin Green Guides for planning holidays in any region of France.
  8. It is time for spring cleaning, too. [:)]
  9. I can only hope that Kathleen is the other member of the party - maybe I should ask. If the money arrives I may blow it all on a new avatar.
  10. Heures Creuses vary - they are 8 hours per day.  Ours are something like 2.00am to 8am and 12.30 to 14.30 but other people will have other regimes. EDF TARIFFS You have to opt for Heures Creuses - most people do because if you have hot water heating it generally works out cheaper, especially if you have other appliances on timers (départ différé) so you can run washing machines, tumble driers, dishwashers etc. during the cheap period. It will be shown on your last bill if you are on Heures Creuses.
  11. I Am Not An Electrician but it's something to do with auto settings for the rad/seche serviette.  Have you done a search on the forum?  I'm sure I've seen an explanation of this before (but I didn't take much notice at the time).
  12. ALL of them, Baz?  I find it a bit of a pain as I seem to lose auto logins etc. unless I do it selectively. 
  13. And more digestible. [:)] I've dried out the keyboard again.  All seems to b
  14. Sorry, Steve, but I doubt if you'll get 75 mpg on the autoroutes. You may manage 3.77 litres per 100km, though. [:D]
  15. [quote user="ErnieY"]So much for helping the low paid then........... [IMG]http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p123/biskitboyo/winners-losers.jpg[/IMG] [/quote] I think the plan is to get people out of poverty by forcing them to take higher paid jobs.
  16. I've just flooded the keyboard with saliva aga
  17. How about this - I clicked Gay's .com link and it took me to France.  I clicked Cat's .co.uk link and it took me to the UK.  I clicked Cat's .fr link and it took me to France.  I clicked Gay's .com link again and it took me to the UK! However, whichever one you are on, there should be a little flag and drop down box in the top right so you can quickly swap between countries.  For the UK click EN.
  18. What - you mean this has been asked before?  Do you have a data bank of cross-referenced threads, Clair? [:D] "Farine avec poudre levante" or similar on the packet indicates self-raising.  As Clair's threads doubtless say. [:)]
  19. Like Treizevzents says, cold frames come to mind.  I've got a couple of old windows sitting in the barn which one day may get put to that purpose.  If you have a few of them of same/similar size and they are not too large, then you could hinge them together in pairs and use them as cloches (need to stick a pane of glass at each end to stop it becoming a wind tunnel).  May be too heavy for that, though, depending on the weight of the frames.
  20. I confess I did not know that Leclerc had service stations on motorways. Try this link from the Leclerc website: Leclerc petrol on your route It tells you all the Leclerc stations along your route. I like that site, Sue.  Do you know how often the prices are updated?  They all seem to be under a month old for Alençon, from 3 March to 22 March.
  21. [quote user="5-element"] Ah!!! The Sun. That is the one thing I did not need to be told about, having gone loopy in the North of England for lack of it... [/quote] As a native of the north east of England I take strong exception to this slur on a beautiful part of the country.  The Sun is commonly available, along with The Star, The Mirror, The Daily Mail, The Daily Express ...
  22. Alice says the payment's on its way ... [Www]
  23. Tia We get more enquiries for the Moto GP than we do for the Le Mans 24 Hrs.  Mainly because there's not as much camping space, but it gives you some idea how popular it is.  The bikers who attend are a great bunch - but aren't they all?  We go to Alençon after the end of the race to watch all the bikers heading north - it's quite spectacular.

  24. I went into a French restaurant and asked the waiter, 'Have you got frogs' legs?' He said, 'Yes,' so I said, 'Well hop into the kitchen and get me a cheese sandwich.'
