I have been using Orange for my Internet supply for the past 12 months and my monthly payments have just increased to just under 50 Euro a month, far to expensive. Has any one got any up to date information on a cheaper ISP. We are in Cher department 18. Thanks, Mike.

Is there an equivalent to Netflix here- where you can rent online and the movies are sent to you in the mail? I'm really missing having a good selection of movies! Thanks.

So summer is here, just, and it is festival time. If you like music and dance then there is no better starting place than ST Chartier. some 130 instrument makers have stalls in the chateau grounds where you can lokk, hear, try, and buy. Many unusual instruments often with very cheap hand made for children. Concerts in the evenings and dances in the village, usually all night. http://www.saintchartier.org/index-en.htm

my girlfriend is visiting and we heard a song on the radio the other day and she really liked the song so i'd like to buy her the cd. we couldn't figure out what the dj said, all i got was his name is christophe something. he has kind of a slightly raspy voice and the song was kind of folky-pop. i know its a bit of a long shot, but thought i'd ask if anyone might know who it coudl be.

I've been trying to find a good source of online music to listen to while I'm working. Variety is key as I get bored with the same genre all day. Can anyone suggest a site? Thanks.

I'd like to hear what you have to think about dubbed movies here in la belle France. I don't get how a country that claims to be into art and artistry can think it's perfectly ok to dub foreign films. Why is this done? I love living here, but find dubbing so offensive because it takes away from the film as a whole and doesn't allow viewers to hear the original actors deliver the lines.

We went to see this last week and it's well worth it. Very funny and if you don't speak brilliant French don't worry - just read the synopsis to get the general idea. It is not difficult to follow! Christian Clavier and Josianne Balasko. The critics were not kind to this film but we just laughed and laughed. It's on in Angers and I think on general release. Jean HTMorannes

How about trying some local folk dancing - the old fashioned "Barn Dance" or "Celeidh" as they are called in the UK. When I lived in the UK, near Norwich, I was involved for 10 years with a club where we played and danced French traditional dances, many coming from the Centre France, George Sands style. This is a wonderful way to help getting integrated with the locals and is also good for keeping fit. The local dance is the famous Bourreé and is great fun with thousands of variations, most named after local villages. But you also get to dance polkas, waltzes, schottiches, mazurkas, and many other styles. Many of the old dances here have words if you are lucky enogh to discover someone who knows the words.There are many dance clubs in this area to start learning but also most saturdays you can find a "Bal Folk" not far away. These are very friendly affairs, very cheap, and with cake and coffee at midnight. Contary to dances in the UK they do not stop at 11pm but usually continue till 2/3am when the musicians are too tired to carry on.For starters a good site listing many such dances is: http://calendrier.musictrad.org/dates.php?region=Centre Hope to see some of you this year at your local dance!
