All seems fair to me. I do try to stay within the speed limit at all times. If I go over the limit, it's because I'm not paying attention and I deserve to get caught for that.
Out of interest, what's an alcho-lock?

Thanks for the info peeps. Let the battle of the ticks commence!
Re Virtdave, you absolutely can NOT use dog flea treatment on cats. The ingredients are not the same and the formula is way too strong. There are specific dog and cat treatments for a reason.

Well, the pee pee seems to have done the trick! Not mine though, it's a bit easier for my other half to go relieving himself about the garden than it is for me! Virtdave, Fantastic Mr. Fox certainly did make it over here, it's based on the Roald Dahl book, which was one of my favourites as a child. ...

No, usually the estate agent fees are included in the sale of the house, so the buyer pays all the fees.
I think that some internet agencies ask for "advertising fees" but this is not the same.

Do you know, I had a vague memory of hearing that before , but I wasn't sure if I had imagined it!
Worth a try I suppose, I was planning to get my hair cut this week anyway.

Well, that might work for getting rid of one fox. But I live in the countryside, surrounded by forests (as most of us do here in Creuse) and I would prefer to deter all the foxes from my very traumatised chookies. Plus, I have two cats and I know that the hunters around here don't need any encourage...

I just rescued one of my chickens from the jaws of hungry fox. She has a broken toe and is in a bit of shock, but seems to be relatively unharmed. (I hope) I did have the chickens wandering free around the garden, but since the fox attack this morning, I put up a fence round the side of the house an...

Wow. And I thought French was difficult before I read all that!
Although, now I understand a joke some work colleagues were making about another colleague, so thanks for that!

Thank you for the Mean Kitty Song! Made me smile.
Creusebear, I love Simon's cat, I've seen them all, they are so clever and remind me of every cat I've ever known.
Have you seen the new Christmas video?
Life would be so much duller without cats.

I think there are two men who work at Ahun La Poste, one is polite and helpful, the other is not. It's not just my opinion, other people have said the same (French people). Jarnages is a bit far away for me, Aubusson is much easier and it's just down the road from work. Might be a useful tip for oth...

Just a word of warning to anybody sending last minute Christmas parcels to the UK. Last week I went to La Poste, Ahun to post a christmas parcel. It was a box of books and weighed 2.9 kilos. The man behind the counter first of all told me it wasn't wrapped up properly (it was!), then weighed it and ...
