Hi all, we get together once a week to play in 65 and would like to hear from other musicians (all genres and instruments welcome) who want to join in the fun. We play the blues, jazzy blues, a bit of reggae or some dire straits and pink floyd as the mood takes us ! , drummers cajonist percussionists particularly welcome ! Looking to put a band together and play live over the coming months.
HiWe have bought a house in Rimont near to Foix/St. Girons and are spending August there. We are looking for a local person who can fit a satellite dish/Freesat box etc so that we can access English tv. Can anyone suggest a local person who can speak English preferably (I can speak a little French but probably not the technical stuff)! I realise the dish needs to be a large size, the mayor has said this is ok. Thank you :)

And all the other crazy idiots who used to post. Entertainment. I'm writing my fourth post, a) because no one will read it anyway, and b) because the rubbish that is posted is boring, and c) because AI really needs some posting turnover. Think of it as a bit of nitro-glycerine into the AI carburettors. You know, the ones that were fitted onto the AI engine. Yes the ones they bought from Ebay occasion.Come on we need a 300 page posting (150 from Alan) about how to register a car in France, another 500 page posting about what constitutes a trailer needing a Carte Gris, a 3.5 million page posting about the merits of allowing half a million Syrian not terrorists (sorry, refugees, not economic migrants) into the EU, some angry lady postings about donating your spare mobile phones for African Calais refugees, so they can phone their family at home.We need another posting about insuring english cars. Dire warnings about using a UK driving license.Above all, we need some serious medical postings. Names and addresses of these doctors/dentists/vets, so that everyone can rain their 88mm artillery shells back PLEASE REMEMBER IN FRANCE IT IS PUNISHABLE BY STONING SQUAD TO EVEN MENTION THE WORD JEHOVAH (who is allegedly the name of a Doctor in aaaaaaaaarrrrggghhhhhh.

There will be pintxos and a cocktail bar and at 21:00 the Melody Flamenco troupe will perform.It starts at 19:00.If you've not been to L'Entre Potes, it's the only restaurant in the village so there's no way you'll miss it!
An air show in south west France!!Sadournin (near Trie-sur-Baïse) is once again hosting its popular air show this coming Saturday August 27, from 10:00. Aside from the beautiful planes and acrobatic performances, you won't want to miss watching the French Air Patrol (La Patrouille de France) demonstration. The Patrouille perform over the Champs Elysee on Bastile Day in Paris and at other major events in France but they always make room in their schedule for this air show in Sadournin. The show takes many years to organise; there won't be another one for at least 3 years, so don't miss it! The weather forecast looks great too. Thanks Giles for helping us promote this event.
