Has anyone tried to use a French satellite dish to receive UK TV using an English Satellite digibox? Is it possible? Or does the LNB work on a different frequency band that will not allow you to receive the signal from the English satellite? Or is the voltage different for the LNB? Also Can you use a ‘UK Digibox’ on a French TV? I know that an English TV cannot receive French terrestrial channel and I was wondering if the output from the digibox would not be compatible with the French TV.

We are considering buying an in-car dvd player for a forthcoming 3600km round trip by car with 3 children in tow, in hopes of a more peaceful journey. Anyone got one of these, as well as 2 or more children ? The pertinent question is, does it stop (or significantly reduce) their arguing en route ? Or will they just argue instead about who's got the best view of the tiny screen ? Lastly, if anyone's got one for sale, please get in touch. Lagadu (29 Quimperlé)

Hi, My wife and I are from the SE of France and are keen Scottish dancers. We love "bagpipe" music and celtic festivals and have always wanted to visit Brittany and attend one of the regional music festivals but have not got a clue where they are held and where to stay - can anyone recommend anything to us? Grateful for everyones input. Thanks.
Hi We'll be spending ten days from Good Friday in Brittany and my 15 year old wants to get in some pre-GCSE language practice - difficult when most of the people we deal with when we visit are anglophone! Has anyone any suggestions for activities he might pursue for a couple of days among native speakers (I'm aware it's complicated by the fact that the local schools aren't on holiday, so commune holiday activities aren't running). Any useful thoughts welcome. Thanks Eamon

I am looking for a college level history book on french and breton history, I am sure there must be other students who want to catch up on this side of the curriculum, which they obviously wouldn't have learned in the UK. Problem is I can find lots of really good french ones but need an english version if digesting it is going to be anything more than a chore for my child! Has anyone found one anywhere?

You always see so much for St Patrick, but we English seem a little more reserved in celebrating our own patron Saint. Does anyone know a decent butcher (in the 22 area) where I can buy a really good joint of beef with a bit of fat in it? All I seem to be able to find is far too lean to roast well, and it doesn't have much flavour. I look forward to wearing my red rose, and inviting a few friends around for a dinner party.
