  1. Dear all Can anyone help me find some good quality broody hens and pheasant eggs for them to sit on please?! Thanks in advance for any suggestions - not markets - breeders preferred - in the St Lo/Coutance area ... Bonne journee!    
  2. Thank Fay & Will You've made it sound even more attractive now - doh! The planes are small - 9 seaters - wonder if they are always 100% full tho? Have emailed them to see if they ever have last minute reductions - well you never know?!  Everyone else has at the moment ... May just have to save it for a very special occasion!  Would save so much time and hassle and could get picked up the other end no problem ...  [:D]
  3. You always try to plan for every eventuality and not get ripped off but sometimes these things are just outside of your expectations and wildest dreams/nightmares! We had a mean relative of our vendor taking away all sorts from our house and outbuildings - when I complained she said that we were lucky they hadn't taken all the trees [:(](from our 9 hectares) as they were worth a lot of money - so always best to clarify!
  4. Hi all Would love to use this airline: www.skysouth.co.uk but bit too expensive for me ... would be glamourous though eh? Has anyone here used it?  Is it new or was it around before the bmi flights stopped?  Maybe useful if I find any well off friends that would like to visit![:D] Thanks  
  5. Any ideas if this is right anyone? Thank you!!! [:D]
  6. Dear all Have seen the suggestion that I try CEDEO for 15 mm copper piping - thanks - and think I've found what I need - copper piping and elbow joints, 15 mm, to be soldered - but I don't want to send my Dad on a wasted journey to Caen - is it the sort of thing that they will always have in stock do you think? (Yes he could phone but not always very easy!). So I can double check does this sound like the correct translation of what I'm after - I'd like to avoid having to buy it in the UK and posting it to France for him if I can (as he assured me that you can't buy it in France?!) ... raccord courbe SUDO 90 degrees Femmell femell pour tube pression diam: 15 2aCu/5002A for the elbow joint tube cuivre demi dur 13/15 barre de 2ML for the piping Merci et bon journee!
  7. I also look at the forum to feel closer to my 'house' in France! It's not habitable so it's a very long term project but it's nice to see so many other people are enjoying their time in France, and of course I pick up lots of useful info along the way. I'd really like a web cam so I can check it it every week and see what's going on with the weather, wildlife, trees, plants and neighbours (and more importantly their goat!) Bonne journee Val et al, wherever you are/whatever the weather!  Keep warm and well ...
  8. Thank you Mrs MDW I've had a look at the websites which are really helpful.  I think TW may be too far for us to travel to but who knows - I'm sure it would be worth the trip! Wishing you and your puppy all the best for 2007!  
  9. Thanks Will & Anton .... Towing would be a really good option for me so I'll look into that. Driving down to the beach with the top down will be fab - one day!  It's a fantastic car - always starts after months of being left idle and pretty fast so takes some getting used to, especially as there's lots of temptation to 'burn them off' at the lights!!!  How sad! Bonne journee
  10. Well you've made my day ... So I only need to be able that I own it and that's it?!  Doesn't sound like enough red tape to me!!! Great - will get that dealt with and off my longstanding list of things to do ... and will def. do it over the winter. Thanks very much for the prompt replies. BTW Will - you may have missed a question I asked last week or so in response to one of your posts about where that dog breeder was - near you - as I may want to contact them?  Many thanks. [:)]
  11. I suspect the answer to this is no ... but ... thought I'd check! I have a Triumph Vitesse but it's in the wrong country! It's in the UK (not roadworthy) - can I bring it over to France to be worked on in this condition (on a trailer of course!) ? I'm loathe to have to scrap it as one day ... after a lot of work ... it will be beautiful again and great to have.  However, in the meantime, it's costing money to keep in a lock up, when it could be sitting in a barn for free if I could transport it to France and there would be more of a chance of it being fixed in France (but no chance while it is in the UK).  Although it would have to join the queue - renovate house first! I guess if the answer was 'yes' I'd need to consider the transportation cost.  Can you take a trailer on the ferries - I've not ever seen one?   [:(]
  12. [:D] Here's another xmas game for you ... take out any aggression or stress on the sprouts!   Attack of the sprouts !    http://www.eyegas.com/xmas05/
  13. Thanks for those replies - the website has some lovely puppy pics - I'll drop them a line ... Will - if you come across that breeders name I'll look them up too.  
  14. I want to buy a black, male, labrador puppy next sumer for my father (he lives in France) - question is do I but one in England and 'export' it or could we find one in France?  (I live in England). I know he will want one that KC registered and got good hip/eye certs, and a working dog (not show) so is there an equivalent to this sort of standard in France, or will I need to buy one in England and then get a passport, microchips, vaccinations, blood tests etc? I presume that I'd need to keep it for a few weeks so that it can have its vaccinations done before it travels and that would be difficult as I work.  Any advice on how long it takes to get a passport in place? Alternatively does anyone know of any links to breeders in La Manche (50)? Not sure where to start!
  15. I've received a reply:   I confirm that your English Will can cover the dealing of the French shares. (ie the SCI)   My understanding is that you all intend to remain UK domiciled with no intention to relocate to France in which case the SCI's shares will pass under UK inheritance Law under your Will. However it is important to remember that the shares will still remain subject to French inheritance tax.   Unfortunately one partner is domiciled in France so this isn't so clear after all - doh!   Will have to see what the English solicitors have to say ...
