When you move house, and you have arranged for internet service to start at your new address, do you just take your Orange Livebox with you, and plug-in and go when you get there?

Thnking aloud as I do....very often.. Do not let Anglo Info Dordogne die!Sell, buy and tell us all about forthcoming events. Try to engage others in sharing ....whatever happened to the Gardening Clubs? Cake decorating classes for the kids and lots of musical events bringing artists in from all over the place to add to the fun of fetes. But please no anger and no bullying. We came to France to be happy,

It is so frustrating and annoying when people ask a question or ask for information and think that everyone knows what they are talking about!!! (eg - see 'Zones' under Financial & Legal) There are AI rules and regulations for responding to postings and, if not applied, get deleted but there are non which explain how to ask a question!!!  Maybe Admin or someone could suggest or give guidelines, please? Many people forget to give their location or the name of their nearest large town, some even give inches and feet in a metric country, others forget to say they live on the border of XXX and XXX (they should be permitted by AI to post on both regional sites) etc. This is not the first and it won't be the last but why don't Original Posters think about who is going to read their question before posting? Most questions are asked in the emotion of the moment of desperation but, for goodness sake, think for 5 mins or sleep on it and then ask your questions which require the basic information so that people can help as near to the facts as they can. There is no member edit facility on here but there should be one or a priority deletion button with the reason from AI if they don't understand either!. The OP could then re-phrase and re-post with a simple, clear, maxi, precise, fully-described public question on how/when/why/wherefore instead of giving other essential information half-way through the 'discussion' which changes the whole subject. This would also avoid mis-information and the situation of 'helpful' or knowledgeable posters, with their time-consuming research and answers, frequently being accused of being 'off-topic' and then being deleted through no fault of their own!

Hi My son (British citizen) aged 18 who is a university student in Bordeaux  applied for French citizenship a few months ago after living here for ten years and finishing his bac in France. He is a fluent French speaker.  We provided all of the correct documents.  Parents provided tax returns (income about 40,000 per year and no benefits) and proof of him being a university student. He was interviewed in Bordeaux. Three months later he was rejected on the basis that  he did not exercise a professional activity or resources sufficient for his existence.   The letter states that under article 44 of decree number 93-1362 of 30 December 1993 'l'autonomie matérielle est une condition importante pour l'acquisition de la nationalité française". If students can make applications for citizenship, how can they be rejected for not working? Does anybody have experience of children who are students making citizenship applications?

Hello I'm looking for some advice.  My husband and I areconsidering relocating the the heart of the Périgord-Limousin Natural RegionalPark about 1 hr south of Limoges, around the Chalais area, we have 2 dogs, 2cats and 2 horses. I have fallen head over heals in love with a property with alarge parcel of land for the horses but have some reservations that I'm lookingfor some help. We both work from home so would take our jobs with us. Hoping to get feedback from people who live or have lived in the area. I have so many questions regarding if this is the rightlocation for us.  1. I know the weather can get hot in the summer, my horsesdon't cope too well with the heat but I want to understand if the really hotweather is limited to July and August?  2. I know the flyes can be a real issue for horses in thisregion, again are the bad months limited to July and August or it is a biggerproblem for extended periods. 3. Does anyone have experience of this area? are there otherexpat horse minded people locally who might like to ride out together 4. Anyone know of a good equine vet and farrier in the area- or local horsey knowledge I can tap into 5. I've read some horror stories about processionarycaterpillars - is this a real issue with dogs and cats and even horses? theproperty I'm looking at has 15 plus hectors some of which is woodland. it wouldbe good to know if these are horror stories or a real issue. 6. Does anyone have other honest thoughts on the region. Forevery bit of research I do there seems to be 2 negative stories to everypositive. it would be wonderful to hear from someone who knows the area and hashorses and dogs.

My new neighbour, a gendarme, has put 17 chiens de chasse in a cage just 33 metres from my property. They howl and bark day and night and wake me up at all hours of the night/early morning. I'm unable to sit peacefully in my garden and the commotion is untenable. The smells from the dog waste is also unbearable in the evenings. The neighbour has acres of land yet refuses to move the cage. I've written RAR to the maire; the prefecture (3 times!); the SPA twice and to my neighbour's superior at the gendarmerie head office including copies of photos of the dogs in the cage, GE images and copies of the Arret 2006  - all without response/action.  This gendarme is clearly breaking the law which stipulates that all kennels should be a minimum of 100 metres from any neighbour. 3 of the dogs also roam around unsupervised and come into my garden and chase my cats. He has no fence around his land and the cage (kennels is too grand a word) has no roofing or proper flooring. Moreover, the arrival of the dogs has devalued my property and I would probably never be able to sell it anyway.  Any suggestions as to what more I can do to solve this 'nuisance sonore' would be most welcome.  Many thanks!
