Re: Gilets Jaunes

by Dave • Tue 08 Oct 2019 11:14

I have to say that I personally haven't been caught up in anything, but have seen people at roundabouts with banners. I do have some sympathy for some of the protesters - there are many people in the Creuse that only just can make ends meet and even a small rise in taxes or fuel costs will really im...

Wild Food. What do you pick?

by Dave • Wed 02 Oct 2019 14:51

This is a great time of year to forage in the woods and fields of Creuse. There's mushrooms, berries, nuts and fruits all around. Have you picked and eaten anything from the wild? Personally I've picked mushrooms, chestnuts, hazelnuts, blackberries, apples, pears and a few raspberries from all over ...

Re: Devinez la chanson anglaise par les paroles en français !

by Dave • Wed 25 Sep 2019 18:11

Well, yes, I guess it's not a word to use with your neighbours even if they are being very annoying, but an appropriate translation does depend a lot on context and this can make some of the internet suggestions very sweary. :)

Gilets Jaunes

The Gilets Jaunes movement has impacted Creuse. There was some rioting in Guéret and more peaceful protests throughout the department. Have you noticed it, been caught up in it or actually been taking part. Do you support them?

Snake!

by Dave • Thu 05 Sep 2019 09:58

Last week we found a snake, or rather a snake popped-up out of a drainage channel and looked at us with suspicion. 8O We've not actually seen a snake in person before but had found discarded snake skins so knew they could be about. It was about a meter long and moved pretty fast once it decided we w...

Re: Secheresse creuse 2019!!

The TV said yesterday that there were 87 departments with drought warnings. It seems pretty dry here this year although it has been worse I think. Our garden produce has really taken a hit - no apples or pears, very few soft fruits, tiny spuds and onions. We've also lost a few trees; a silver birch,...

This has changed a lot over the years. I used to have to go the the Maire to get the key to the dump to let myself in years ago.
