  1. An interesting and informative post. Interesting in so much that I was unaware of the existence of Wallace and these dual-purpose artefacts (looks and serving a usefulness). Certainly something to visit if in a nearby location. Informative by dispelling a 50+ year anomaly, for me, of the term "Wallace Collection". You see, I always assumed that the name could be solely attributed to a 1960s band from Belgium who attained a certain amount of success throughout Europe during that 'pop' era. Perhaps some of you of a certain age here will recollect this number they performed. Wallace Collection - Daydream HQ -1969-(3).mp4 .
  2. The snowdrops and crocus/croci 💐are in full bloom in the garden. Yesterday I saw a second butterfly 🦋 of the year and some bees 🐝. Unfortunately, there isn't any food available for them yet.
  3. I would suggest that you glean your information from a wider source than some 'Brit Forum'. This is not just a French agricultural issue but a European one, Holland, Germany, Romania, Ukraine,UK and soon to be global. It is basically driven by four issues. The madness of climate change 'green issues', unfavourable subsidies, low return to cost ratio and over population of the world. To not support the farming dilemma is sheer insanity, and who would want to be a farmer anyway? It's a no-brainer. Reports are saying that Paris's food stock is down to 3 days.
  4. Why do I get an inclination, Barack Obama would give you an argument? He was, after all, only 47. 😉
  5. I use Firefox and following a connection 'timeout' it will report to your screen if a site you are attempting to access is operational. It checks and reports on your computer's capability to access the internet, the location and connection status you have with the server you are being routed through, and the operational status of the site you are attempting to access.
  6. France's largest fishing fleet, Scapêche, is owned by Intermarché.
  7. Generally no, but with one exception. The Exception.mp4
  8. "This moment in time" Er, I'll settle for "now".
  9. It is also a handicap with not having an overall majority in the General Assembly. It's easy to block a President's policies and elevate their unpopularity along with discrediting their party.
  10. No. Had it been the case, I unfortunately would not have been posing this question or contributing to the forum. It was though a good friend, the late, great Jeff Beck. RIP. 😞
  11. I'll pass on that one. However, remaining on the question topic, and more my cupa't, who featured on guitar on that Tina Turner track?
  12. Elton John (I'm Still Standing, one of his many hit songs.) QUESTION, Who, "off strictly come dancing fame, was one of the dancers on the official video of this number?
  13. Appoint a Power of Attorney. It can be you, your sister or a third party. Once appointed, the POA is authorised to make legal financial decisions, ie not to the detriment of your mother, and an arrangement can be drawn up as to the ownership or disposal of the property.
