I am moving with my family close to Saint Colomb de Lauzun on the 15th July and I am an experienced musician looking to form a new band. I have been running my own band here in the UK "The Quest" we have an FB page if you want to look us up, there is a link to see us playing live as well. I am not sure how to go about finding other like minded musicians to contact and get something going as soon as I can, perhaps someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks Aidan.

Hi, I would like to just see how many of you have elderly or infirm parents who would benefit from getting out once a month or a fortnight to meet other elderly none French speakers in the Dordoge.  We are located near to Belvés and it has dawned on me that my elderly parents would benefit so much from getting out and meeting others.  I was thinking of something like a wine and cheese or a Tea and Cake afternoon at a local salle de fete.  All it would cost is the hire of the salle de fete (which I would like to get a good price on) and the tea, coffee, wine, cake, cheese or whatever this discussion leads to).  Ideas very welcome, we often find that one parent suffers from a form of illness or disability while the other remains a bit of a spring chicken!!  A social gathering would be amazing and take the strain off the children/carers for an afternoon.  Just wanted to know your views on this before I plough ahead and try to create something locally.  It may be I can do a deal with a local bar to cordonne off an area for the group and then it would be a matter of buying coffees and teas.  Interested in your thoughts on this matter.  Lets keep the older brains ticking because one day it may just be us.  It is proved that lonliness is no good for our cognitive function and just getting out and chatting to different people really can stimulate our brains.  Spring is on its way so lets see what we can do.  Thanks for your participation in this discussion.  All ideas welcome.

Hi, still researching possibility of living in France.  I love British TV.  I can get Acorn TV in the US (where I currently reside) but was told it is legally available in France.  With so many British people living in France, surely there must be a way to watch British TV.  can someone enlighten me on this?  It will then remove one major setback in my list of pros and cons,  thanks.

Hi,I have suddenly lost access to SKY News on my smart tv. I watch tv through an Apple TV box via an iPad, but SKY News came installed on the tv. Now, in the last week, I get an error message when I try to catch up with the news. Is it only me?

Hi,I've just signed up to Bouygues' fibre optic Miami Bbox thingy and the new password is 30 characters long which is difficult for me to enter on small devices like smartphones etc. Can somebody please explain to me how to change the password to something shorter? I tried calling Bouygues for assistance but I keep getting assistants who don't speak English and my French is not good enough for technical words and procedures.Regards
