Its been really hot here up in Jura so have had the windows open all night so I would have thought nothing you plug in would work when your asleep.

I have found though that its only when low down near the coast we get bitten lots especially where there is lots of foilage. As we tend to spend a lot of time wilding up in the hills generally in open areas we don't get bothered that much.

Basia is an ace with our electric racquet - we must organise a competition next time we meet

We now have two, one for MH one for house and we do not have to pay Ryanair for transporting the 'sports equipment'

I think we need pictures or vid of that event.

I'm wondering if I can supercharge my electric racquet somehow to swat unruly children or Belgians.

Haven't come across any on this trip but its only a matter if time. I tried it on Michelle but it didn't work.

Hmmm . . . I wonder if the zapping unit could be 'adapted' to the door handle ? It should give any prospective thief a welcome shock
