  1. I haven't been into a supermarket for over 5 years, so the problem doesn't arise for me. Fresh food I buy either in Les Halles or in one of the weekly markets, and the sort of bulky or heavy items I need from a supermarket ( loo paper, detergent etc) I order online to be delivered and get the receipt in my email...
  2. Perhaps because the power cuts are local not national, so the app needs to know where you are so it can give you warning of the situation where you are at the moment?
  3. To encourage repair and recycling .. https://www.midilibre.fr/2022/12/15/montpellier-un-ado-de-14-ans-est-decede-apres-avoir-ete-percute-par-une-voiture-apres-le-match-france-maroc-10869014.php See here for qualified repairers https://annuaire-qualirepar.ecosystem.eco

  10. Thanks a lot for the link, but..3000€ though😰
  11. There might be a plaque like that at the restaurant where they keep a table for me each day unless I phone to cancel. The other day we joked that when I am gone they can put up a sign 'This table is at last available' as it is in a rather nice sun-trap position 😀
  12. Pity about that as I find them very good. I suppose it might also be difficult for non British people to open a UK account at a distance, but as I have never tried I can't be sure..
