  1. Ian, thank you for sharing this with us.  Debs certainly was a very special, unique person.
  2. We don’t know what to say that hasn’t already been said by others.  Debs was a truly special person. As a couple you complemented each other perfectly.  You know that we will be thinking of you.
  3. Cooperlola is undoubtedly the expert on this, so everything she said goes!  One thing I would add is to try and take a stroll around the paddocks late at night.  We managed to go around last time at about midnight or 1:00 in the morning.  Wonderful atmosphere, with some of the night and early runners prepping cars etc.   So, yes, definitely get a Paddock pass!   Thanks for the complement Coops!  We’ll be parked in the Corvette Club France stand, which in the past has been at the “top” end of the paddocks, behind the village.   Perhaps we'll see you there?    We're bound to see Mr & Mrs Cooperlola!
  4. Hi Thanks for your comments.  I'll check out LIDL next time I am passing.
  5. Does anyone know if there is a problem with the supply of packet bread mixes.  Usually we get ours from ALDI but they have stopped selling it and our other supermarket (SU) has a lot less on their shelves than normal.    When I asked the assistant at ALDI if they were getting further deliveries, they said no but could not give me a reason.
  6. Thanks a lot boys and girls!   To be honest, my main reason for asking was to make sure that our TV wasn't missing something that it should be receiving!  We can get radio via the tuner with no problem.  However, in the UK there is wider range of radio available via the digital network that over the airwaves, so that might have been good here.   Maitin's point about the bandwidth is interesting and the better picture quality is certainly noticeable. And yes, we do occasionally stream stuff over the internet, but that’s not so practical for us….. But now we know the score anyway!  Thanks.  
  7. We receive French TNT TV terrestrially (aerial, not satellite) to a "digitally ready" TV at the moment.   That gives us a range of "free" TV channels.  We do not however seem to have access to any "radio" channels, as we do on our UK digital system. Is there a way of receiving French radio, or have they not moved on that far here yet? Thanks Loirette
  8. I agree.  I was given a 3xCD pack of her songs for my birthday this year.  She has a wonderful voice and unique style.
  9. Well, we’ve seen the “unsung hero” doing his stuff, and very good at it he is too. And still barely looking a day over 62. We hope you had a great day Mr C…. and hope to see you both soon!
  10. Hi I have recently had to go to the dentist as a filling had come loose. My dentist told me I would need a crown fitted (I was led to understand that it was not possible to fill again). When I received the Devis in the post, I was a little concerned about the cost so when I went for my next appointment I explained that it was too expensive and asked if he could just fill the tooth and maybe at a later date I would have the crown fitted. He told me it was entirely my choice and that of course he could fill the tooth although it would not be as strong as a crown. I'm going back next week for the filling. So no, I don't think you have to have the other work carried out, especially as you haven't signed anything. If your dentist will not agree to a revised devis, perhaps you should look elsewhere.
  11. Yes, very sad. We were watching the race and could tell that it was serious, but were hoping he would be ok. He definately was a star for the future.
  12. We have a field that the we allow the farmer to cut for hay. We have asked him to check with us each year before he cuts that this is still ok. We do not take any payment and he keeps the hay. We understand that this is the safest way.
  13. Thanks pachapapa.  Which takes me back to my original posting asking if anyone is using IE8 and if they have experienced any problems.  
  14. Clair, thanks for the info.  The only reason I asked is that I know nothing about Firefox.  I certainly wasn't looking to cause an argument.  I also should have said that I am still using Windows XP and not Vista, so I guess I am behind the times in all aspects. Thanks for you comments anyway.
  15. Hi Clair Sorry, yes I meant Internet Explorer.  I've looked at V9 but that requires Windows V7, which I don't have, so I may go for Internet Explorer V8.  Out of interest, why do you prefer Firefox?  Loirette
