Innocent mistake= endless ribbing

In the course of erecting a huge marquee for a wedding event, we laid out protective covers on the ground beforehand. I kept hearing my fellow workers say...vâche this, vâche that....I couldn't help but innocently enquire if the word for tarpaulin was the same as the friendly beast. Of course, it wa...

Re: Remember cleaning all those bugs off your windscreen in the 80's and 90's?

Unashamed tree hugger here....just wanted to suggest that if more people were tree huggers, the natural world and environment would not be in the crisis that it is in now. I for one support the direct action taken in London this week as this gets the government's attention as many of these protester...

Re: Port Leucate

Richard and Sharon,

I can assure you that you can avoid the naturist area if you wish to as it is a dedicated area; the populus of the port, nearby beach, lagoon and the Spa supermarket were all clad in textiles everytime I have visited or stayed. There were no euphemisms in my original piece :D :D

Port Leucate

Great place to sit and watch the nautically minded or weekend sailors tinker and clean their pride and joy. Sit and listen to the birds calling and the gentle clang of rope against aluminium mast while perhaps having a drink at the lovely bar there. Marvel at the sight of the mobile boat lifting rig...

Thinking of a new furry friend at home? Please don't go to a breeder.

Dear dog lovers, There are so many dogs looking for a new home after being abandoned or deemed surplus to requirements, in farming and hunting communities particularly, that there is no longer any need to patronise breeders by handing over expensive fees.

Re: Downpipe protector

Hi there, I am sure you have found a great solution by now, or replaced the pipe several times since. Just a thought, any possibility of diverting the downpipe at a higher level with a couple of bends around to a safer location away from traffic?
