Well if you spent your Christmas Day eating your lunch outside where the warmth and sunlight were exceptional for the time of year or you spent it huddled round a candle praying that the flood water wouldn't rise any further, I hope you all had something celebrate this Yuletide.


As the band played on.....things can only get better. Good health, good fortune for the coming year.

Open-source alternatives for paid for software


The open-source community offers an array of programs that deliver professional-grade features without the big-business price tag. Here is a small selection that are all Free.

Office suite: LibreOffice

With its word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software, Microsoft Office is most well-known. But Office Home & Business 2013 will set you back £178 per computer, and an Office 365 subscription runs €99 per user per year.

Libre Office offers the same general functionality in a free package. It works with all the standard Microsoft Office file formats, so you’ll still be able to open and view Office files from others, or share your LibreOffice documents with partners or customers who use the Microsoft suite.

Email: Thunderbird

Email is the primary method of communication for most businesses. There are a number of paid and free email clients available, but Microsoft Outlook is one of the most widely used.

Thunderbird email developed by Mozilla - the makers of the Firefox Web browser. Thunderbird provides comprehensive features including tabbed email, integrated chat, smart folders, and phishing protection. And, like Firefox, it’s customizable via add-ons.

Accounting: TurboCASH

It’s no surprise many businesses rely on Quickbooks or Sage to keep their books. Managing quotes and proposals, invoicing, accounts payable, accounts receivable and more. But these options start around £150.

TurboCASH helps you keep track of the money going into and out of your business, it gives you the same capabilities for free. You can manage debtors, creditors, invoicing, bank reconciliation, and more. TurboCASH has comprehensive report features, and it can be configured for different currencies and industries to meet the needs of small businesses around the globe.

File archiver: 7-Zip

WinZip is the de facto standard for file compression software, for compressing and decompressing files in a variety of formats. It won’t break your budget, but it does cost £25 per license.

As an alternative, consider 7-Zip. It works with a broad range of compression formats, just like WinZip.

Desktop publishing: Scribus

Many small and medium businesses also create their own marketing and advertising, designing brochures, fliers, and other Posters using a product like Microsoft Publisher. Publisher is included with some of the pricier versions of Microsoft Office, or it can be purchased separately for £105.

Scribus has all the tools you need to create professional-quality marketing materials.

You can get the same page layout capabilities with the open source software includes the tools you need to create professional-looking marketing materials.

SketchUp Make

Hobbyists, kids and backyard spaceship builders all agree that SketchUp Make is the easiest, most fun, entirely free 3D drawing tool in the world. This has many features usually only found in very expensive CAD software or 3D design software, it totally free for private use.

If you need help or have any questions about your computer please give me a call or send me an email for FREE advice. or Telephone 05 61 60 84 23.

 Le Flyer est disponible dans d'autres langues via le site web,







If you have the energy to venture out into the garden to work off some of the Christmas dinner there are a number of jobs that aren't too strenuous that can usefully be done this week.   If you have bought winter flowering pansies then regular deadheading will ensure better flowering.  Have a wander around your garden and check stakes and tree ties and firm soil around trees and shrubs if they have been loosened by the wind at all.  Collecting leaves to add to your compost heap or for making into leaf mould is still an on-going task and if you have water for the birds remember to change it daily when there is frost.

In the last Flyer I mentioned the Strawberry tree as being of winter interest; another attractive evergreen shrub that looks good at the moment is Nandina domestica or Heavenly Bamboo, despite the name it is actually a member of the Berberis family.  The type species grows to about a metre and a half with similar spread.  It has attractive foliage, white flowers in summer and red berries in the winter; also in winter the foliage tends to colour red, particularly in the dwarf form Firepower.  It needs some watering during the summer months and likes full sun or half shade

For any garden queries do get in touch with Gill Pound ( 04 68 78 43 81 or ). La Petite Pépinière de Caunes 21, av de la Montagne Noire (route de Citou) 11160 Caunes-Minervois. Open during the winter months by appointment.
