I am going to be in France for ten days or so

from Tuesday 26th May. I'll be in the forum as usual, but at odd hours.

Please bear with me if you email me and have to wait a little longer for a response.

Don't know what sort of Gascony countryside you are in, but I've always thought there's something peculiarly satisfying about sitting in a vineyard drinking its product, getting the benefits of its sunshine both inside and out!

I am in an old farmhouse with rolling fields and woodland as far as I can see in all directions. The loudest sound is birdsong, and today it was 28 degrees. The water in the pool was 27 degrees.

I could stay forever.

By way of an update - we stayed an extra night in a Toulouse hotel last night. Our car was sideswiped by a French lorry as we were on the way to the airport. We were both pretty shocked, but otherwise OK - the brand new Avis car is a total write off. Thank goodness for modern cars with their multiple airbags, those on my side saved me from being showered with broken glass as the lorry slammed sideways into the driver's side at 70 kph. C'est la vie. - returning later today.

FE, as you are over there have you, or any of your acquaintances, any ideas what IL/TP 1353 is all about?

Glad everyone is OK, a side swipe can be very nasty.

Hope you paid for the extra cover ;0)
