Does any know if there are places like Specsavers here where you can get your eyes tested and lenses all at the same time or do you have to go to a different place for your eye test?

Hello I stopped getting any post for a month in April except for supermarket vouchers etc and put it down to Easter, strikes, bad postal service etc until my unemployment benfits stopped. When I rang the Assedic they said that they had had a returned letter stating that I didn't live at the stated address anymore. I explained that I did, rang the post office who said sorry, there is a new postman, not to worry, they'd sort it out. Since then I've been receiving my post but: Mise en demeure, bailiff letters for non payment, my family allowances have been suspended and I no longer have social security and so on and so on. I rang the post office again, same guy as last time who told me that in fact a "Monsieur" had come to the Post Office 2 months ago and said that Mme X no longer lived at that address and to send back all her mail to the sender. Apart from wondering who this Monsieur is, I would like to know where I stand legally, the head of the P.O. said he could only do something if I had proof that letters had been sent back, ie that I show a letter stating "Return to Sender". Not sure sure how I can do this as I DIDN'T GET those letters as they were returned to sender! Also, don't the P.O. need some sort of ID to stop post being delivered and not just some weirdo who wanders in saying "Don't deliver to her anymore". Anyone any idea concerning my legal position, should I report it to the police? (Apparently mail theft is a criminal offence in France and the mysterious Monsieur in question has in some way stolen my mail) In between time I have lost a lot of time (and money) trying to sort this out - and it's not finished. Thanks

Hi there Have you seen these posters yet, they are brilliant, I thought a really good, striking way to get the message accross, then I found this article and the fact and figures are really frightening....

Having lived here (on the French side) for years I have eventually got round to doing my personal admin and need to get my birth certificate translated. Has anyone done this before? The lady mentioned going to the marie.... How much should one expect to pay? Thanks

Hello everyone, Would like to know if there is anyone living in Evain or the surrounding area. I'd be interested in knowing anything about the city or the region,i.e. cost of living,weather ,medical care and most of all, how difficult did you  integrating ,if at all? The reason I ask this is because my French at the moment is far from fluent. I'm working very hard on it but wonder if people in the area tend to be accepting of those not so fluent!   p.s. I will be retired and will not need to seek employment. Thanks, Dee

Congratulations on another fab site! I have just had a look at the traditional gifts one would give for a 15th anniversary and it looks like clocks and watches are a traditional choice, and how appropriate for the 15th AngloINFO, and the first in Switzerland! When is the toblerone anniversary, that's what I want to know!
