Anyone else getting flickering and …..nothing......when trying to get their emails from SFR? I've received none of my emails since Thursday afternoon and my business is internet dependent! I won't even know if you've read this - unless you contact me on orange.fr using the same initial protocol
With no free to view F1 this year I am going to have to make do with the C4 highlights which although very good is not quite the same as watching the race live. I refuse to pay for a Sky subscription but have read somewhere that the races will be free to view on a french channel this year but I cannot find any info. Anyone got any ideas. Be great if this site could get back to how it used to be before it was "improved"

If you haven't been to Chez Tante Mabel yet in Pers, you really should go and visit it. Its a lovely new shop that sells soaps, various gifts and cards and Bev who owns it makes the most lovely cakes. I have just sampled some of her cup cakes and they not only look too good to eat, but taste as wonderful as they look. You'll also get a great cup of tea. Give her a call on 0549291907 for directions, as I always seem to go a differant way. I've been a few times now and never seem to leave without something.

This may help to explain the impasse we have with our EU “friends” Mr Dave Davis is at the golf club returning his locker key when Mr Barnier, the membership secretary sees him."Hello Mr Davis", says Mr Barnier. "I'm sorry to hear you are no longer renewing your club membership,if you would like to come to my office we can settle your account"."I have settled my bar bill" says Mr Davis.."Ah yes Mr Davis", says Mr Barnier, "but there are other matters that need settlement"In Mr Barniers office Mr Davis explains that he has settled his bar bill so wonders what else he can possibly owe the Golf Club? "Well Mr Davis" begins Mr Barnier, "you did agree to buy one of our Club Jackets"."Yes" agrees Mr Davis "I did agree to buy a jacket but I haven't received it yet". "As soon as you supply the jacket I will send you a cheque for the full amount"."That will not be possible" explains Mr Barnier. "As you are no longer a club member you will not be entitled to buy one of our jackets"!"But you still want me to pay for it" exclaims Mr Davis."Yes" says Mr Barnier, "That will be £500 for the jacket. "There is also your bar bill"."But I've already settled my bar bill" says Mr Davis. "Yes" says Mr Barnier, "but as you can appreciate, we need to place our orders from the Brewery in advance to ensure our bar is properly stocked".. "You regularly used to spend at least £50 a week in the bar so we have placed orders with the brewery accordingly for the coming year".. "You therefore owe us £2600 for the year"."Will you still allow me to have these drinks?" asks Mr Davis. "No of course not Mr Davis". "You are no longer a club member!" says Mr Barnier."Next is your restaurant bill" continues Mr Barnier. "In the same manner we have to make arrangements in advance with our catering suppliers". "Your average restaurant bill was in the order of £300 a month, so we'll require payment of £3600 for the next year"."I don't suppose you'll be letting me have these meals either" asks Mr Davis."No, of course not" says an irritated Mr Barnier, "you are no longer a club member!""Then of course" Mr Barnier continues, "there are repairs to the clubhouse roof"."Clubhouse roof" exclaims Mr Davis, "What's that got to do with me?""Well it still needs to be repaired and the builders are coming in next week", your share of the bill is £2000"."I see" says Mr Davis, "anything else?"."Now you mention it" says Mr Barnier, "there is Fred the Barman's pension". "We would like you to pay £5 a week towards Fred's pension when he retires next month". "He's not well you know so I doubt we'll need to ask you for payment for longer than about five years, so £1300 should do it"."This brings your total bill to £10,000" says Mr Barnier. "Let me get this straight" says Mr Davis, "you want me to pay £500 for a jacket you won't let me have, £2600 for beverages you won't let me drink and £3600 for food you won't let me eat, all under a roof I won't be allowed under and not served by a bloke who's going to retire next month!""Yes, it's all perfectly clear and quite reasonable" says Mr Barnier. "Piss off!" says Mr Davis Now we all understand what Brexit is all about!!!!! Not my original thinking. Just passing on an e-mail that I received.
