I plan on visiting the village and church later this year as well as the mottes which I've wanted to visit since you first posted about them.

Re: Weather

by Dave • Mon 21 Aug 2017 09:39

The weather seems to have settled for a bit. It is forecast to be a bit like August weather of old for the next couple of weeks with mostly hot sunny days broken by regular heavy but short downpours and thunderstorms. We have often watched large evening storms raging over the hills to the South with...

Re: Le quatorze juillet

by Dave • Thu 13 Jul 2017 10:01

It depends a bit on the town, but the one's I've been to had various amounts of partying / dancing / speeches / marching and all had drinking and late night fireworks.

These days I tend to enjoy the fireworks from a distance and raise a quiet glass at home.

Re: Screwfix

Screfix EU is a handy site. Free delivery from €70 now and some prices seem a little better than the UK site as well - although many items don't seem like good choices for a French property and a little care is needed (T&E cable, UK socket layouts and pipe fittings).

Re: Have you ever brought your pets to France?

All paperwork done for the export, nobody wanted to check them at the tunnel though

LOL. I can't really see them scanning each bee and filling in their passports. I am bit surprised that you are allowed to take bees on the tunnel.

Chapeau!

You brought bees with you from the UK?

Re: What has happened to La Coterie?

by Dave • Tue 27 Jun 2017 09:26

La Coterie Enterprise ceased trading in February 2017. The website is also dead so I assume that the accommodation side has also stopped.

Have you ever brought your pets to France?

by Dave • Mon 26 Jun 2017 12:31

Did you bring your pets to France when you moved over, or on holiday?

Has anyone ever brought a Ferret? Or something even more exotic? :horse: :cow: :snake: :monkey:

Portraits de Creuse

It looks like the website has been suspended, which is a bit unfortunate. The B&B was up for sale (you can still find the details in the Directory).

Re: maladie de pick

I had not heard of Pick's Disease (or frontotemporal dementia) before. It doesn't sound too pleasant. I can't really comment on whether President Trump has a neurological disorder but he does at least seem to find focusing on and expressing one single train of thought to be somewhat difficult.

Replacing your bookmark with a new one is a good idea. Many problems when logging in can be cured by deleting the Pont Noir cookies or you browser cache. I'm glad that you kept at it and managed to eventually log yourself in. :)

I've just heard via another site that the owner of La Rose Rouge B&B (Martin Chappell) died recently.

My Condolences to his daughter Sam. For anyone that knew him there will be a small gathering on Monday 19 June 2017 at 12h00 in Saint Amand 23200.

Re: Creuse News?

Thanks, that's interesting and although partly a shame, it is nice to think that the original owner who put the effort in was able to sell up first, rather than it just folding. Running something like that is a tremendous effort I expect and often underestimated. It was a great source for local even...
