Hi, just wondered if anyone has aNy info for assisting with vacation property bookings, other than your TripAdvisor and Chalets Direct, and all the other traditional website routes? Advertising in the local towns and communities is one of my next phases.Running a large chalet as a winter and summer holidays business in the Southern French Alps, and subletting two apartments.This time last year the business had more than double the bookings, this year we are 70% down for winter and summer. Maybe people appear to be waiting to the very last minute to book. We rent the chalet all year round and at the moment its hemorrhaging cash like a bad poker player in Vegas. Any thoughts or suggested very much appreciated.
I'm considering making the move to France and starting to look at the best places to find homes. Found a great french property listing website that cuts out the expensive french estate agents, worth checking out if your considering purchasing a place :) easyfrenchlife (.) com With the Pound strong against the Euro, it seems like a great time to start a new life in France! Any other sites you can recommend, it would be great to hear!
I shall be walking from my current home in the Aude, to the house where I was born, in Blackpool, Lancashire. I plan to take 70 days for the walk and to arrive 70 years, to the day, after I was born. I will be walking an average of 30 kms a day, 6 days a week, for 10 weeks. If anybody wants to follow my planning, preparations, training, and eventually the walk itself (starts on May 15th 2010) my blog address is:www.vicsbigwalk.blogspot.comAny helpful suggestions will be gratefully received.Vic Heaney

Hi, I would like to know if Anglo Info exists outside of the Alps please? I am specifically looking to post a request in the Limoges area (for an English/French person available for translation assistance in Limoges in June 2011). If Anglo Info is not available, are there any other Anglo Forums please? Damian.
Below is a copy of an email I received last week from Roger Gale M.P., and he has given me permission to post it on this site. If you have not been in touch with him before he needs all your details include the name of your M.P. and N.I.#., address and phone #. Write to him c/o The House of Commons, or email GALERJ@parliament.co.uk The relevant legal 'reference' presented by Upper Tribunal judge John Mesher to the ECJ can be downloaded from:- http://www.osscsc.gov.uk/Aspx/view.aspx?id=2806 Exportable Benefits Once again, my apologies to those with no further interest in the exportable benefits/DLA/Attendance Allowance/Carer`s Allowance issue: please ignore this communication. In order to bring my records up to date and to allow me to separate out those with a specific and continuing interest (which will enable me to avoid cluttering up other peoples' mailboxes with irrelevant communications) I would be grateful if all of those who are still seeking to claim Current benefits 2. The backdating of benefits or 3. who still have appeals to Tribunal pending or awaiting hearing dates if you would be good enough to let me know. While many have informed me that benefits have been reinstated and paid or that, sadly, claimants are no longer with us, I believe that there are other cases where the status is unclear (particularly where the relevant member of parliament has quite correctly taken over the management of the case). It would help a great deal to get some sense of the scale of the remaining problem before the Welfare Bill completes its stages through parliament as the latter may have an impact upon benefits. Many thanks Roger Thanks for your help. If you have a legitimate claim it is imperative that you get in touch with him AND your own M.P. A Dios, Bolivar.
Most stray cat associations and refuges in France are fully occupied helping to alleviate feline suffering. I wonder if you could help us, here in Poitou Charente, by supporting our petition asking for approval by Local Government of Trap-Neuter-Release as the only means of humanely reducing stray cat numbers. If just one Department in France, out of 95, adopts TNR, then a door will be open to the rest of France. Our petition is entitled 'HELP FRANCE BECOME A CAT-FRIENDLY COUNTRY' which we will present to Madame President of the Conseil General of Charente Maritime - Department 17 - France. You can click on the link to our website - http://www.la-protection-des-chats.com - and sign the petition there or you can go direct to the petition by clicking on - http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/help-make-France-a-cat-friendly-country. You will doing a great service for stray cats in France - thank you.
Has anyone been to Guatemala recently? Our daughter wants to travel there with some friends this summer, however everything we've read implies it's an incredibly dangerous place to visit! Just wondering if this is internet hype or the reality, so if anyone has first-hand experience of travelling there we'd appreciate any info (both positive and negative)!
I just read (and then watched on Youtube) that Sarkozy told a man who refused to shake his hand to "get lost" at the agriculture show in Paris recently. The American news seems a little worked up over it, as do Sarkozy's opponents. His opponents think he should be more dignified. Personally I find it a little refreshing that he's not such a robot. Any thoughts from anyone else?
After all the interest in the horses we have been able to rescue & rehome to date, we are extremely pleased to announce the arrival of Equine Rescue France a newly registered not- for- profit association based in France. Our aims are to alleviate the suffering of equines that have been abandoned, mistreated or are destined for the abattoir through facilitating their rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing. Where we cannot act, we will inform the relevant authorities of equine mistreatment and, where possible, pursue justice. Furthermore, by supporting recognised organisations in other E.U countries we will campaign for improvements to existing legislation on transportation of live equines to ensure that they are protected from cruelty & neglect. We are extremely lucky to have a very motivated team of experts working with us to create ERF so please help us to help these needy equines by visiting our website www.equinerescuefrance.org where you can find out more and join our efforts by becoming a member. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me
