For some time, we've had a slow broadband internet speed so we contacted the English Speaking Service of Orange and they told us that we had  'Dynamic Line Management'  filter on our line.  The man explained that this is a system whereby it slows the speed but keeps the connection on an unstable line.  He confirmed that our line was in good order and took the filter off and hey presto, we got really good speeds, in fact it was 3 times faster than we've ever had before.   However, the speed is going down each day and is getting slower and slower.  On checking the internet regarding DLM is appears that it is an automatic system and 'rights' itself when the line is more stable.   Has anyone had any experience of this or can offer any useful help and advice before I contact Orange again. Many thanks.

We will be shortly moving to a new house with a large plot which needs to be turned into a garden. Can anybody reccommend a garden centre or nursery - ideally one which will offer 'trade prices' given that we will be looking to buy many trees and shrubs, grass seed etc. We will also be looking to buy a polytunnel.

We are a retired English couple who, after living in France for 20 Years moved back to the U K some 8 years ago . We both still miss France and usually drive down through France to Spain in the winter . So, on our way to Spain we were thinking that maybe someone would like a house sitting guest to look after their animals/ home whilst they are maybe visiting family over the holidays or indeed anytime from early December .We understand this would not be an easy decision to let an unknown (to you) couple into you home , but if you are interested then please feel free to ask any questions . We love all animals and would treat your home and animals as we would our own . The period could be from a few days up to 2 weeks and then we can drive down to Spain . If you are interested then i will forward you our home phone number , e mail address and mobile No.Regards........John

We have frelons nesting in the chimney pipe of our woodburner.    They were crawling out of the open air vents but we have now closed them so they are contained.    I looked for info on the internet and the advice given was to leave them until the Autumn when they would disappear.   Does anyone have any experience of this problem?
