Bonjour, BienPourquoiNon

Hello JD, I have nothing to discuss at the moment

JDW70Wellwhynot - 26 Jul 2011 09:05:04 (#3 of 7561)

Can anyone please tell me exactly what these are indicating since the car has undergone its first CT here:

DEMI-TRAIN AV (y compris ancrage): Jeu importante ou anormal rotule et/ou articulation (INFG,INFD)

From my understanding of his explanation I need to replace the ball joints right and left, but before I order I need to be sure.

I also need to replace a tyre but not usure sur l'essieu but not the axle which translation seems to indicate?

I'm always needing help so this this thread has been needed since the demise of the last.

Great Tour, eh, jelly.

Are you pro or anti wolf? I am pro wolf, mind its mostly cattle round here, very few sheep

My daughter and her boyfriend are off on Saturday for 2 weeks in our French house, first time anyone has stayed in it for 60 years.They've got a lot of cleaning to do.

Are you pro or anti wolf?

What are you referring to exactly? Is it that the wolf carries rabies?

You're certain it's still there, woody? And where is 'there'?

And now I am on my way get the dog it's rabies vaccine so I can get her a passport.

Be careful with that. You need the rabies shot and antibody test six months beforehand and a booster before you go (plus an anti-tick treatment 24-48 hours before going) IIRC.

Junebug - 26 Jul 2011 10:56:25 (#10 of 7561)

so many French things to discuss: the move to the far right of most of our politicians, the fact that gay couple still can't adopt (parents should be a man and a woman married apparently, nothing else will do), the tour won by an Australian, french bureaucracy (I need a passport number to buy a prepaid sim card?!), etc.

I am pro-wolf.

Junebug - 26 Jul 2011 10:57:04 (#11 of 7561)

and 'its' rabies vaccin ffs!

JDW70Wellwhynot - 26 Jul 2011 11:22:48 (#12 of 7561)

I'm not too genned up on the political situation here only that Sarky isn't very popular. And I understand there are many candidates in the struggle as to who will lead the Parti Socialiste.

manlee - 26 Jul 2011 11:31:50 (#13 of 7561)

Well, DSK would have been the obvious choice and would probably have beaten Sarkozy. Obviously, that's no longer possible (how handy...). I can't see any of the others doing well.

kentigern - 26 Jul 2011 11:45:47 (#14 of 7561)

Why doesn't have Kindle books, eh, eh?

jellytussle - 26 Jul 2011 11:56:36 (#15 of 7561)

It does

kentigern - 26 Jul 2011 12:02:35 (#16 of 7561)

I'm feeling really thick then but I can only see a handful when I look. Is there a special cache that I'm missing? (I mean books in French, not English - hell I can get them anywhere.)

jellytussle - 26 Jul 2011 12:06:35 (#17 of 7561)

You have to follow the link to the Kindle site, there are not that many in French yet

kentigern - 26 Jul 2011 12:08:49 (#18 of 7561)

Ah, so not missing anything. You got my hopes up there, jelly.

jellytussle - 26 Jul 2011 14:10:41 (#19 of 7561)

There is also a copyright issue with a lot of English language ones if you try to order from Amazon UK

kentigern - 26 Jul 2011 14:18:52 (#20 of 7561)

These things can be... worked around.

But June's already told me off for that.
