Re: Was it you?

I don't doubt it for a second, unfortunately I already have Jessica Prealpato, François Payard and Duff Goldman working full time in my new kitchen!

Re: Pass Sanitaire - 9th August 2021

Wife did a long train journey last week and wasn't asked, but every terrace or place I've eaten at have insisted on it, and that's been in different areas of the country. Also needed it to climb to...

Re: Bonfires - first world problems in rural France.

Lol! Think the nose might have detected something like that on the way past. Probably more sanitary than burying rubbish anyway. :)

Re: Bonfires - first world problems in rural France.

Thanks and for the link. This bit was interesting :"Par exemple, brûler 50 kg de végétaux à l'air libre émet autant de particules fines que rouler pendant 14 000 km avec une voiture à essence neuve."...

Re: Bonfires - first world problems in rural France.

Thanks for the replies - I'm not sure if they're burning sufficient quantities of plastic for the environmental police to take notice, but I'll bare it in mind. I'm hoping after the chat from the...

Re: Bonfires - first world problems in rural France.

The person who lit the big bonfire is an adjoints au Maire. We told the mayor the person in question should know better and uphold the law.
It's all a bit complex though, as the mayor probably...

Re: Bonfires - first world problems in rural France.

The mayor told us at the time, he's not the police and all he can do is warn them of a complaint, but can't do more, if they continue we would have no other course of action. A relative of one of my...

Bonfires - first world problems in rural France.

Has anyone had problems with neighbours and bonfires? The house across for me keeps a small fire-pit bordering my top garden. He's retired, and despite having a large communal recycle bin just 10m...

Bill, it sounds like you've lived a very interesting life. You have quite the literary flair too; it certainly enticed me to read until the end. If it makes you feel any better, my wife speaks...

Re: Pass Sanitaire - 9th August 2021

Thanks for the clarification DMU. So basically if you don't have the pass, but go to an event that should require it, but doesn't ask for it, you could potentially be in trouble.
I can't see many...

Re: Pass Sanitaire - 9th August 2021

From what I've read subsequently it sounds like it won't be enforced too much this week (perhaps hence the laid back attitude), but will probably change from next week, so I suspect most places will...

Re: Pass Sanitaire - 9th August 2021

I got to use mine last weekend for an event (paper version, I'm not a big mobile phone user). I handed over my carte vitale as ID, as I wasn't carrying my passport, and they were okay with that - the...

Re: Living in France as Foreign Nationals in the Future ?

Re: Living in France as Foreign Nationals in the Future ?

The inconsistencies to how these rules are applied are frustrating - I think people accept that's part of France and its way of doing things. I have heard of the stories you mentioned and other more...

Re: Living in France as Foreign Nationals in the Future ?

Mine aren't Lycée age yet, but I've no doubt peer pressure and schooling all play a role - it's inevitable wherever you go. They certainly pick up a lot of gros mots and expressions, that I would...

Re: Living in France as Foreign Nationals in the Future ?

There are changes globally, and that's inevitable - history happens, culture changes. I don't find the changes to be big in France. Yes, there is perhaps more impoliteness, more stress, more...

Apparently the person who told me about terraces requiring a green passport said they heard it on the radio this morning. Doesn't mean it's a given of course, but also doesn't sound promising.
