I live in Limousin, France and, since moving here I've turned my hand to any things: running Les Trois Chenes B&B and gite, training as a plumber, renovating houses, learning a smattering of French and generally enjoying the good life.
See more of our life in France, follow me on Twitter and Facebook - I'd love to meet you.
Index of my on-line writing Find an article by Les Trois Chenes Trying to keep tabs on my Hubs. I put my collection of the easiest, most economical, most delicious and most foolproof recipes that I cook here at LTC into my On-line Cookbook called (rather unimaginatively) The Les Trois Chenes Recipe Book It's organised seasonally, to fit into the years natural rhythms.
Life on HubPages Why bother to write articles on HubPages? Is it worth it? Well, many people clearly get something out of it and in this article I try to assess exactly what I gain from being a member of the HubPages community: Do I see benefits from my HubPages?
