In case you are bored with another bank holiday, there is an international Extreme Sports competition going on on the River Lez, Montpellier, for 4 days. Skate boards, BMX, Snow boards (don't ask!) etc etc, with what looks like cameras, amplified commentaries beer tents, tented village etc. Good time for us to go see the countryside methinks!! Enjoy.This is in addition to Swing Dance, Hip Hop and Show Jumping all I think the same weekend - Montpellier never sleeps it seems. We won't!!Happy hols! GrannyFi

Myself and my wife will be spending 5 weeks or so in the Feines Minervois area ,in Sept /Oct/Nov this year, property spotting, I would also like to spend some time fishing the rivers or lakes....Coarse fishing, Barbel, Carp, etc.I do not seem to be able to find out what general licence is required, and when the seasons start / end...I would not want to get into trouble with the local authorities..if anybody could assist I would be very grateful. I have heard that there are some top class waters available in the area,and would like to meet up with anybody local who has a similar interest,and could give me some basic tips. Once again, many thanks. David. David/Ruth

We will soon be completing on our purchase of a holiday home on the Aude/PO borders. My husband is a keen fresh water angler we seem to be able to find information on trout fishing in the region there is very little else about other species. He is particularly interested to find out whether there are Catfish or Barbel in the larger rivers of the area. That said any tips ideas locations for successful fishing would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Sue

My girlfriend and I have decided to make a bit more effort to stay fit and so have decided to invest in a couple of bikes. Ideally, we would like one full suspension and one hardtail but if it's a good deal, we're not all that fussy. Please let me know if you have a bike for sale. Thanks (",)

I’ve just returned to France after an amazing 2 year voyage with my father on his Bavaria 38. I sailed with him from the Eastern Caribbean to Thailand. I would love to talk to my friends about the adventures that I’ve had but they all think that I’m making it up and won’t listen to me! If anyone is thinking of setting off on a similar adventure and would like to know more about what to expect I would be delighted to tell you about my experiences and try to answer any questions that you may have. During my time on the boat we overcame a huge and diverse array of problems and I feel that I have gained valuable knowledge and experience that I would like to share with others. Somebody said to me once “It’s not your ability to sail a boat that will get you around the world; it’s your ability to anticipate problems and fix things when they go wrong!” I agree, wholeheartedly.(",)

My daughter and her family are considering moving to the area in the future (myself and young son live in Limoux) and she is trying to gather as much info as possible. Her son of 9 years of age is a particularly gifted football player and presently attends a private academy in the UK where these clubs are popular. Does anyone know of anywhere here where he could continue with his passion for the game? It would be a shame to waste his potential. Sadabbott

I hear Barthez is returning to football. Great for Nantes, but what if he rejoins the French team? Good idea?
