I have a UK bought and perfectly working but quite heavy in my suitcase digital radio that I'm hoping will work in France - does anyone know if it should? I've just found out that my telephone handsets won't work as they are so now I'm thinking this may be the case with my radio too. Much appreciated. Only 2 days to the big move!
Dear all, Does anyone know where I can organise a number of Christmas parties - perhaps even a New Year one too, or as it is called here Reveillon de Saint Sylvestre. I am looking for a restaurant which is 1. wheelchair accessible and 2. will accept/organise a party for 30 to 40 children so as I can avoid the Mac Don.....'s hackle 3. I am looking, also, for a restaurant that will cater for around the same number of Adults for Christmas lunches and evening meals. I am near to Mirepoix (09 Arriege) and Fanjeaux (11 Aude) Any suggestions gratefully received. Many thanks in advance Marie Domaine de La Coume Aude
Hi, apologies in advance if this is a 'blond' question. Do you need a sat dish in order to use these digital receivers I see in the supermarkets? We are hoping to get better tv without putting up a sat dish as we are renting and thats not possible in our building. Thanks for the help. In Canet
Dear All, I am an Ex-professional musician living in Lunel and am looking for help to form a small international chamber orchestra and English Choir in this area with the aim of presenting, as our debut, a Christmas Carol Concert. For the initial formation it would be desirable for the instrumentalists and vocalists, English speaking of any nationality, to have some experience and a competent standard. All voices and instruments will be needed and the rehearsals, depending on the response, could hopefully commence in October. I do hope that you are able to assist me in this endeavour.Kind regards,David, Lunel

I produced a write up on Angie & Co. for this magazine. They were due to appear at the camping site at Lac Salagou on 1 September. Apparently the whole mini-festival has been cancelled but Angie & Co. Blues Band are appearing at le Rols, Millau on 8 September.
Make a note on your calendar not to miss Angie & Co Blues Band, 7 pm at Brasserie des Sports, Montagnac on 18 August. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. This band are the best musicians I have heard to date in France. Angie is a diminutive young woman but can’t she just sing from her soul! Her distinctive and extremely powerful voice resonates the blues in its truest sense. The band comprises a female singer (Angie); drummer (Erik); guitar (Mike) and bass player (Eric). Their repertoire includes songs by such artistes as Ella Fitzgerald; John Lee Hooker; Etta James; BB King; Ray Charles. The band was formed around 2004 but Mike only joined them last September. They plan to expand their line-up with a pianist, a brass section and write their own material. They are available to play at private soirées. If you are interested in the latter, please send me an e-mail and I will let you have Mike’s telephone no.
