They are bred to be shot during the hunting season ( although i would probably be the firstto hide one if it came into my garden).

Doubt very much they are lost. I would guess the chasse has let them out for the hunters to shoot. In alenya every friday evening they come and let a load out and every saturday morning they come and try and shoot them. They have killed everything else off at the back of us so have to let things out...

That means that they must have everything so seems strange that they haven't sent you a carte vitale yet. Think it is probably just a question of someone pressing a button on the computer . Good luck - :)

i would definately go in because if you only have a temporary number then that is why you still have not got your cv. Could be they are waiting for a document to appear by magic and while you say nothing they will not bother asking for it. Or if you are lucky then they have everything but nobody has...

do you have the correct number though, or a temporary number? correct umber starts with either 1 or 2 then year of birth then month then you will have 99 if you are british and then 6 other numbers ( but not a load of zéros). if you have the zéros at the end then there is a problem. I would get some...

I went to mas vermeille recently to drop paperwork in the letterbox and there was a sign saying that you need a rendez vous to talk to someone in there . Not sure how you get a rendez vous though as did not say.

Well to give people a laugh here is the explanation of an employee of cpam as to why it takes so long to get a carte vitale ( from december 2012) when a carte vitale is processed it then has to go to a office who puts it in an envelope and then to another office for someone to close envelope and put...

I don't think there is ever a good time to visit the cpam ( or the caf for that matter). If you have put in writing then you need to count approx a month before a chance of a reply. Best way of contacting them is via ameli .fr (if you have an espace personnelle), they reply in 48 hours . As you have...

Have you asked your lawyer what would happen if you put your property back up for sale? There are plenty of estate agents and notaires to choose from here . If the person who wanted to buy your property went to court i can't see how she could stop you from selling. I find it strange the lawyer hasn'...

Hi russel, my friend says he cannot change the plates on it , something to do with the conformity. I am no expert in camping cars so wouldn't have a clue to why. I know it is one that you need a lorry licence to drive.
