does anyone know where I can buy some indoors fireworks OR fireworks that are not rockets or bangers?  I live in a rural area -in the middle of harvest - with animals and children who are sound sensitive.  Guy Fawkes is coming up and this year I would like to indulge!   So..in the Charente/Charente Maritimes is there somewhere who can cater for the above.  Have tried Gifi (all bangers and rockets) and the mega fete shop at Cognac (same)any ideas would be welcome.

Hi, I will be bringing a Samsung TV to Deux Sevres (79).  We need someone to install a sky dish to enable us to watch UK TV (it has FreeSat).   Can anyone recommend someone in our area please?

Have been using a Sky minidish since 2003 with FTA box and no problems until start June 2017. Thought the problem was ancient dish so thinking of replacing with new Sky minidish, but it seems these are now Zone 1 or Zone 2. Do I need to use a Zone 2 or will a Zone 1 dish work?  Looking at Amazon, seems both dishes are same dimensions (60cm x about 40cm) but perhaps the LNB is different. Any advice on this?

Does anyone know of cinemas in the POitou region that have the capacity to screen films in 70mm? Just been reading about Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk that is due to be released in a few weeks with the possibility of 70mm screenings.

We just thought of a solution to brexit and shipping cost reductions, and an independent  Scotland. If we start a continuous convoy of lorries from scotland carrying soil rocks buildings etc and dumping into the English channel, we would eventually join up with France.We would then become part of Europe land mass, no need for brexit.
