Catching up on current affairs today, I found this remarkable article for it's description of the French election bellwether town of Donzy.
Dozny is indeed a small market town which has, like most French towns, weekly fresh food markets, there twice a week.
Marchés - Mairie de DONZY

Which group of tyres is best for country lanes? Can get muddy with cars cutting into the verges when it's a tight squeeze with 2 cars passing each other.
Most of my driving is on these type of roads plus single laned A...

I'm new on this forum and its short notice but if anyone is interested I'm organizing an event this Saturday 21 November in Yeovil, Somerset in aid of the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance. The entertainment is Steve Parrish who was a very successful GP bike racer (team mate to Barry Sheene) and...
Awaiting sale that is, and that was from this morning.
I went to Gatwick Mercedes-Benz today and test drove a 250CDI (soon to be renamed) to be told that if I want one, I'd have to move quite fast.
There were all sorts of offers on offer, so to speak.
Details on 'next year's', in...
Currently doing some consultancy work for a charity and today I left our home in wiltshire and 548 miles later after visiting Hull and Huddersfield I'm in Glasgow. The e class turned in 30.9 mpg on the dash display which is none too shabby for a e240. Tomorrow weather permitting off to Aberdeen...
Considering buying a watch , not new , a pre owned one to add to my collection , but it's in Cyprus.
I've spoken to the vendors ( a shop ) and they say there will be no import duty to be paid as we are both in the EU ? Is this correct ?
What's the delivery service like from...
I've noticed a lot of aftermarket products originate from the US, there is a lot of choice.
Is this because the yanks have decades of experience racing/tuning V8's?
What about the Aussies down under?
Or the Germans...?
I will be bringing back this E250 CGI W212 2013 to Malaysia for good. Is there any "tropicalisation" that need to be done to the engine? Some years back I had seen mercs that were brought in from UK being tropicalised. The obvious thing that was done was a radiator change. They might also...
Just taken the car over the Cairn o' Mount (between Brechin & Banchory) first time I've hit this road in the current car! What a drive :) nice & twisty, no cyclists or slow drivers, had it in S mode & manual & it roared away! :), have to find a longer road now! :thumb:
Sorry if I am being ignorant here??
Whenever we have some rain, half the country get flooded, just watched the news and found out Datchet in Berkshire is like Venice.

A few years ago , some train services were cancelled...
A couple of weeks ago I bought a Drive Flange for my ML from Mercedes, Newcastle upon Tyne. Today I had a phone call from them asking if I could check, as it appears they did not put my card through for the payment:D
So my flange is fitted and it cost nothing, how cheap is that. Suppose I...
This rant is just about riding a bike in the country areas, not inner towns and cities, although there is lots could be said.
I ride a bike a few times a week for leisure, and have never had a real issue with any type of vehicle. There are also horse riders about, and I would hope their...
Selling my W209 AMG bumper on eBay at the moment and I have been contacted by a person from Jakarta, Indonesia.
He has asked if I would post (he'll pay of course).
Would you? is it likely to be major grief?
