Hi, I sell a second hand electric cooker set (vitreous ceramic) with oven. Brand: FAGOR mod.: Elegance type: 3CF-4V Price: 200 euros. You'll be in charge to pick it up in Paris the 17eme. If you are interested and want to see some pictures, write to email@example.com
We spent the first night in our new apartment in Paris. At about 2 in the morning we noticed that the electricity wasn't working. Our housefinding agent was there the following morning with a builder and he checked it out. It turned out that somebody had gone into the meter cupboard on the landing and nicked the fuse. Apparently these fuses are only available from the electricity company and people occasionally nick them so they can get free electricity. Has anyone heard of this happening and if so is it a common occurence? We're trying not to be paranoid but it has knocked our confidence somewhat. We can't understand how the electricity company allow these to be so easy to nick and now we're worried in case it happens again. As it is we were there for a further two days and didn't have any electricy because EDF didn't get round to replacing it before we left. KPNuts
Hi. We are having problems finding someone to come and look at our malfunctioning electric radiators - we have made quite a few appointments but no one ever turns up! Have seen the listings for heating engineers on this site but what we would really like is a personal recommendation as we have already wasted a lot of time with no-shows. Any ideas? Thanks.CSM
Just wanted to let you all know about something new n exciting... A while back a friend of mine told me about a 'no-detergent laundry ball'. I tried it this weekend and works like magic! ...it's natural and will save you money. In French it's called a "boule de lavage sans lessive" You can find information about it on google. Here is a sight for example: http://www.robbywash.com/
I would highly recommend "Dip Clean" Cleaning Service (we found them here in AngloInfo classifieds). The very professional and friendly manager, Gifty, oversaw two cleaning ladies who came to our 4-bedroom, toddler-afflicted apt. in the 3eme once a week for 2 months. They did a superb job, were always prompt, were reasonably priced and actually responded when I initially called for an estimate (after going through 3 other no-show/nonresponsive companies through the same classifieds.) We're leaving the country soon, but on our own initiative wanted to make sure we put in a good word for Dip Clean and Gifty; they were great. Rob G.
