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...

Firstly apologies for the lateness of the reply (the post approval process didn't flag this post until after the upgrade so it was missed). You do need to use use a fitting with an appropriate IP rating for the location, or zone, where it will be placed. The nearer the fitting is to a water source l...

You know these definitely seem to be out of favour lately, at least I haven't seen a small one for sale anywhere for a while and I quite missing them.
Perhaps they are out of fashion atm?

According to www.securite-routiere.gouv.fr (and many other sources) the law is still in force but there is no fine. So yes, you legally have to carry an unused alcohol testing kit but the fine for not carrying one (€11) has been suspended indefinitely.

You picked a good two weeks to visit weather wise. A lazy day by a river sounds really good. We did manage a short picnic on the riverside which was a real treat this early in the year. We also seem to have a single bat that lives in a crack between two big beams that span our barn door opening. I'v...
