We have just bought a house in Haut-Rhin (68) and we need to change our electricity (rewiring) and tre velux windows (small ones). But it is so expensive here in France. Do you know where to find someone who can do it not that expensive??Nath

I heard something on the news last night about the fact that the French spent more on food than anyone else in Europe, they spent over twice as much as the Irish for example. Why is this? Is it because food is so expensive here?

This is confusing me: when looking for a property, does T2 mean 2 bedrooms? I'm pretty sure 2 pieces means 2 bedrooms, but this T thing is throwing me off a bit. Thank you.

If I have a straightening iron from the USA and use it in France (plugged into a voltage and plug covertor), will it be hotter than in the USA because of the different current (I think it's current)? I don't want to burn my hair. Thanks!

I just went to buy cream for a recipe and found that there are many options from which to choose. If a recipe calls for heavy cream, which one do I choose? I think I bought entier and it was WAY too thick and ended up curdling. Thanks.

How do I get rid of the moths in my food cupboard? I've cleaned in out and sprayed some product in there, but they just keep coming back!

Does anyone know how you do this? I know everythings regulated, but I don't know if it is if you just want to have a cleaner in for 1 morning a week or so. Do you have to do any official things and paperwork or can you just have an agreement with the person. Hope someone can help!

Maybe I just haven't been looking closely enough, but I can't seem to find canned anchovies anywhere. I see sardines, mackerel and tuna, but no anchovies. They must be sold here, right? Am I just looking in the wrong place? Thanks.

We are having problems with ants at the moment. They seem to be all over the kitchen. Can anyone tell us a good way to get rid of them? What products are best and where can we get hold of them? Thanks
