nom patronymique le cas èchèant

by smilespwp • Mon 23 Oct 2017 15:04

Trying to interpret a declaration document sent to my wife and, and I'm not quite sure on the following (nom patronymique le cas èchèant). I am assuming that it means family name, but in the case of my wife would that mean "maiden name" ?

Thanks

I don't know if this question has been resolved but if you were to go to any High Street photographer and take a copy of this NL document http://unitedkingdom.nlembassy.org/binaries/content/assets/postenweb/v/verenigd_koninkrijk_van_groot_brittannie_en_noord_ierland/nederlandse-ambassade-in-londen/i...

Re: Are Forums dying out in France ?

by smilespwp • Mon 13 Jul 2015 14:29

I believe that one of the reasons the forums are dying out, is that when one does answer a request for help/information, a response or thanks is very often not forthcoming. Which makes me wonder, am I doing right, trying to be helpful. As my mother used to say, "A thank you costs nothing"

Over the winter (2014-2015), the village works team have been busy creating a fishing lake for use by the public (with a locally purchased permit). An asset in the commune, with a pique-nique area. Apparently, Perch, Carp, Barbel and some Trout from the stream that feeds the lake, have been identifi...

Quickest, although not necessarily shortest, will be the toll routes. Buffalo Grill offer some quite decent choices around 12 to 20 Euros. Have a good and safe trip.

Hi Jay For Newhaven I would get there about 1.5 hours before the sailing departure. You don't say whether you are on a day departure or the 2300 departure, have you got a berth? Newhaven port is very quiet in comparison to other ports. The cafe there is quite poor, but there is a Sainsbury's about h...

Just had a look at my usual route DFDS - Newhaven/Dieppe leaving Feb 8th 2300 hours departure and the total fare for a return journey was £144 for a 7m private Van. 4hr crossing and cabin is extra. If you are over 60 and book via phone or at Newhaven terminal you can get a 20% discount. Hope this he...

Latest season of Spiral started last night on BBC 4 at 9.00pm. As usual, they are broadcasting two parts back to back each evening (12 parts to the series). Looks to be as promising as the earlier seasons.

Must have missed that one, looks as though it might be one I would enjoy. My next French one is another by the same director as MicMacs and Amelie, entitled "Delicatessen". I'm saving it for a period when I will not be disturbed. One advantage of having a memory like mine is that I can see a film, e...

Well, ordering the "Micmacs" DVD was well worth it. Received it in a couple of days and watched it last night. If you think you would enjoy watching a film featuring a cast of zany misfits, banding together to help the main character fight two rival armaments moguls, then this is worth a watch. Impr...

Anyone else hooked on the French TV Series "Engrenages" (UK title is "Spiral"). I've been a fan of this French detective series for a couple of years now and just watched the final episodes of Season 4. Being a lover of French TV/film drama and comedy, I can honestly say I've enjoyed this intensely....

Part of the view from our 1st floor balcony looking down towards the eglise. Much improved since the power supply and telephone lines were removed and re-sited underground.

Hi Sally I think you will find an abundance of properties for sale, and If you purchase, I am sure you won't be adding to any housing shortage. In our experience, buying a house in France, is far easier than UK, depends on how you do it. Estate Agent, Private sale, Notaire (who has to be involved in...

Maybe a better image showing the associated leaves/foliage might help to better identify it. The only leaf I can spot there, is ivy, but the flower doesn't look like any ivy flowers I have seen. There again, I don't profess to be an expert.

Another attempt at getting more familiar with Mypaint (and a little final cropping with Photoshop). It needs a bit of patience, but in my opinion, it is easier to draw with than Artrage. The author of the package does mention that it is meant to be used with other graphics packages and there are peo...

Especially for Creusebear, but for anyone playing with drawing tablets/graphics packages, I've just found this drawing package which seems to me to be as close to freehand drawing as you can get: The package is called Mypaint, and it seems to be far superior to Artrage/Inkscape/Expression3 as far as...

Would like to think that more would submit their efforts. On my Genius tablet, there is a transparent cover over the drawing area which allow...
