  1. We are looking for a house to rent for 12-18 months from september onwards. Somewhere between Vivonne and Civray would be preferred. We are a non-smoking couple in our 30's with 2 young boys (2 yrs old and 3 months old) and 2 small dogs. If you have anything available please PM me with the details. Thanks.
  2. I've just received a publication called 'le monde des artisans' in which there is an article about a change in paying charges for people within the regime "micro". It then goes onto say that this change would happen "en meme temps qu'un relevement du plafond du regime fiscal a 100,000 euros (vente) et 50,000 euros (production)". Now maybe I've got the wrong end of the stick, but I thought I'd see if anyone else has heard anything.
  3. Does anyone know if it's true that the 27,000 euro limit on yearly production is being increased to 50,000 euros?
  4. The original bulb is 60w and yes it was being changed to light the area up a bit better. The installation does have breakers and RCDs so it kind of rules out the phase and earth suggestion. I quite like the voltage drop idea as its beginning to look like the only possible explanation and I will be testing it as soon I get the opportunity. Thanks everyone, I'll let you know.
  5. I havent tried one but I cannot see a reason why it would make a difference.
  6. No solar cell and no PIR. Just a straight forward fitting.
  7. No the supply is there. Very strange isnt it? Glad it's not just me then!
  8. Another thing - there's no earth on the lighting circuit but I cant see how that would affect anything.
  9. But when I plug it into a socket it works.
  10. I have just bought a 500w spotlight to replace my existing outside light. I fitted it but it doesnt work! The old light still works but when I connect the new one - nothing. I've checked the fitting is ok by putting a plug on the flex and plugging it into a socket and its fine. But it just refuses to light up on the existing lighting cable. Any ideas?
