Hi we have a lot of Arbousiers and I was wondering if it was possible to make jam with them. I know people eat them as fruit. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks spiritofangels

I hear that the weather has been pretty dreadful down there this week. Is it normal for September? I thought that the Summer went on a bit longer . Wills

Well, Ray - a little bird tells me that it's Hawaii Day for you, with the big Five-Oh finally coming up. Have a great day down there in the Var, and many happy returns!

I just arrived in France and setup my previously functioning W2k machine from the US and tried to start it ...unsuccessfully. It will not even boot up. I have tried to boot it in Safemode(s) and with a W2k CD but that doesnt work either. I checked Microsofts website and they suggest trying to use a Recovery Console utility on a boot disc. Does anybody have any idea how to get one of these utilities or a boot disc? I am also concerned that somehow the power being switched to 230 from 110 is an issue since during one of my attempts to boot it I recieved a "blue screen" with an error message related to power.   Thanks

Does anyone know the best place to go for an annual gas boiler maintenance and service contract in Nice?  Gaz de France have said that a private company would need to carry this out.   Thanks.

In 2002 - 2003 I had lessons with an Englsih woman who lived (maybe still does) in Grimaud. She was quite inspiring, filled me with confidence and had me chatting away in French by the end of the first lesson. I want to go back to her for more - but have forgotten her name and have lost her phone number..... Does anybody out there know who I'm talking about ???

I've just sat and had my breakfast outside and watched 12 eagles circling above my house..........they were happily cruising on the air currents and calling to each other..........is this unusual, what kind of eagles would they be and is this an omen for the end of the world? vaucluse
