  11. Just keep the nasties out of the compost heap, like the bindweed & couch roots, and I beg to differ, but I'd avoid the nettle roots as well. unless they are baby plants. Then add all the leaves that you'll collect in the autumn - the green machine picks those up and mulches them a treat. Peter 'Nothing runs like a Deere'
  12. Basiclly yer gets what yer pays for! If you have a lot of grass, go for a Honda or a John Deere, and the biggest you can afford. Talking to people in the UK, the Deere is rated the best [and it comes in a nice restful green colour]. Peter    
  13. [quote user="suzi05"] Also - Stabilisant. What is it? How do I test it and where do I get it from if I need to add it? Thanks suzi www.patiras.com/trinite.htm [/quote] Salt from your pool supplier probably has stabiliser in it, but will cost you 20 euros +. Forget it, and use water softener salt from your local Brico at about 7 euros, and don't worry about stabiliser & don't worry about testing for it. The beauty of the salt water system is simplicity. I forgot to ask in my previous post; Have you got a winter cover? Peter
  14. Does your system have a control box showing the amount of chlorine production as a digital readout? Can you smell chlorine when you take the cover off? Have a look at this: www.jacksons-camping.co.uk/swimming/monarch-manual.htm I love my salt water pool - It's SO easy. Peter
  15. 2 starters, a main course [often steak, and a big one at that] cheese, dessert & as much bread & red wine as you want, all for 10 euros. Where? Ah, that's my secret, but north 36. Peter
  16. Thanks Nick I thought I'd got a write off, but a new silencer will get me mobile again. Peter
  17. [quote user="Athene"] It is one thing to share quality time in the sun with friends and neighbours but to be in France all the winter when there is less to do and less people to see... We will see! [/quote] Winter's winter, wherever you are, but in France in the winter at least the cold is a dry cold, and you can go for 10 euro lunches [wine included]. As for visitors, would they be the ones who keep you up until the small hours drinking your cellar dry, then emerge at 11.00 am saying "What are WE doing today?"    "Well I don't know about you mate, but I live here, and there's work to do, so perhaps you'd like to mow the grass for me."  Stunned silence from visitors. Peter    
  18. I've had a look at the old posts and can't find the answer to this one: The Proc├Ęs Verbal has 2 sections:- 'Defauts a corriger avec obligation d'une contre visite' - Now that's obvious to me; You have to get it fixed and go back for a retest on that fault within 2 months. 'Defauts a corriger sans obligation d'une contre visite' - That's the one that's throwing me. How long have you got to get those defaults fixed? What's the penalty for not doing so? If only thes 2nd faults are noted, have you got a valid CT? I'm sure SD will be along with his usual mine of information, but I'll pm him in case he's sleeping in the sun! Peter
