Don't confuse me, Robert. I'm a bear of little brain. Actually, I did try adding up the monthly rates, as per Banque de France, and dividing by twelve, and came up with a figure of 0.8031. Either my adding is no good, or the difference is in the days per month. Or something? Anyway, it doesn't make ...

Thanks

€500!! I would have thought that was enough to stress about. I believe there are thousands of people whose drainage doesn't conform, mine included. I think the only time it will come up will be when you go to sell the house. Maybe by then you'll have mains drainage. Maybe!!

Great picture, Dave, but how does one upload photos to the forum? I've searched the forums for the answer, but I've not found it.

Re: stone Martens

Quite an interesting question. My first thought was that mothballs can't be all that toxic, because I can remember as a child they were in all our wardrobes, though rather 'the mint with a hole shaped' than balls. However, researching into it a bit, I found that the napthaline mothballs are indeed c...

Does anybody know the exchange rate to be used for income tax forms yet this year?

Re: Where's the nearest A&E?

by dissid32 • Mon 28 Apr 2014 11:10

I tried googling the Croix Blanche just out of interest this morning and found it quite difficult to find any useful information about it, apart from where it is. However, there was an article from La Montagne which I understood to be saying that the radiography is still there and they are also goin...

I don't know how urgent it is for your wife to see someone, but might I suggest that you go via a GP anyway, rather than go all the way to Montlucon or Gueret on spec, though they must have an A&E. Mme Tardieu in Mainsat speaks very good English. I don't know about doctors in Auzances, but there are...

I think, though I'm not absolutely sure, that it's the turn opposite the Briconautes turn, at the little roundabout there. Down on the right. I don't know the name. I should imagine if you ask for a floor sander they'll show what ones they've got, and you can see if they've got something suitable. H...

I think if you go to the Exclusive Healthcare site they have some useful information. Also, even though you won't be working in France, you will still have to register with the tax authorities and make a return each year, even if you end up paying nil tax.

Re: Rouen diversion

by dissid32 • Mon 17 Feb 2014 10:45

To tell the truth, Virtdave, I didn't find it all that useful, but that may be because I'm being thick. However, I did try googling 'Rouen diversion' and someone had posted on a forum that the bridge will be closed till mid September 2014. So I guess that answers my question.

Car insurance

by dissid32 • Tue 04 Feb 2014 18:06

A friend of mine may want me to drive her car for a trip to Paris. She has told me that, unlike in the UK where normally one has to be added to the car owner's insurance, in France that isn't necessary. Does anybody know whether this true?

Moving up North, so to speak, it's probably going to be colder in winter than where you are now. I haven't got central heating, just a couple of wood burners, but I understand the cost of central heating is probably going to be at least a couple of thousand euros a year. You may not have to pay taxe...
