Hi Caroline, Welcome to the forum.

I cleared up the code on your post, it's a bit of an awkward way of selecting font and size etc.
I'm sure you'll get the hang of it soon

Bonjour à Tous!
I'm in Brittany, and it's all a bit cidery and Oooh la, la, la, la here, plus lots of intensive farming, beautiful coastline, wellies and check pinnies are 'de rigueur' dress- and that's just the men! Our nearest town is like Leyland in the fifties and sixties, but less exciting.... the natives are friendly and bring soup round if you're ill, and the occassional pair of dead pigeons... mmm.. NICE!!

Oh, I love Brittany - we've holidayed in various corners of Brittany over the years. There's a feel of continuity of habitation since Stone Age times..... and the coasts are marvellous.... and I'm salivating just thinking about the crepes!

Glad you liked the homepage, Noel, thank you for looking- and happy to tell 'le Monsieur de Wigan' that the crepes are still delicious; it's true about the sense of history here, and you get a weird mix of things- our friend who works for French Telecom as some sort of whizz kid trouble-shooter also keeps sheep and makes cider... friends who are in rock bands or are hip DJs still go home to Mum's on a Sunday. Up till the fifties, most Breton houses had earth floors, some still have, noteably one next door to people we know, their'facilities' consist of a board laid across a midden!!!

"elloo madam" spoken in my worst french accent... I think I gave up French when I was in the third year at school. Can you tell?

It's frightening how little of the languages I did at school I can now remember! I can get by in French because we go there on holiday most years, but I used to be able to watch French films without reading the subtitles and now.....? I reckon my mousemat says it all: "Everytime I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain!"
