2016......l’année de merde - Crap year for everyone- Just a few things that happened..........
Started with a hospital stay due to Cardiac complications. Carried on with just about every aspect of life - stolen Bank Cards (3 in total) illegal withdrawals to a total of 1,200 euros. Visits to places we would/should NEVER have to go like the Gendarmes, Hospital, operating rooms because of stomach ulcers caused by heart medicines...Post office closed for months for 'renovation' had to go 15 kilometre & back to send registered letter, postperson changed (according to the Post office) twice in one month....still no mail arrived - for anyone in the building! A complaint by myself made in September was answered by letter in November....! The clearing centre was burned down - still mail before and after the event didn't arrive! In any case our mailbox decided not to open with the key, and the landlady still hasn't responded to our request to change it or I'll break it open. Right now I have to fish the mail out, if I can! High security with a thief in the area!
Personal health hopeless - 'Zombie' state permanently due to medecines.
Tina's back still killing her daily, her stomach 'deranged' daily, eating is no problem for her but is for me with these ulcers slow to heal....
Problems with the Internet supplier SFR - From their offer of 'unlimited' with Internet, phone, TV and all the rest at 39.90 euros/month became 85 euros then down to 65 euros (which I had been paying anyway! No increased performance as promised - in fact more breakdowns....Same thing with my Antivirus until they finally decided to be reasonable and gave me a (payable) programme that covered up to 3 PC's.....! Gee - thank you!
Technical material that kept breaking down or just not working, and Internet forums full of people's comments that 2016 was SHIT- 
made us feel not quite on our own. !Image may contain: text

More hospital visits and operations to change the defibrillator implanted - not pleasant, and I looked down the road with a little bit of envy at the main village cemetery!
All in all (and all these things are just a small part of the happenings) 2016 - forget it - and we've still got 2 weeks left!
