    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I speak some French and am a good music teacher for the beginner and novice.
    I am always happy to answer questions on writing and publishing books and willing to review any writing project that you may want to discuss.
    For those looking for experience operating mini-diggers and developing property maintenance skills it is an ideal opportunity to expand your portfolio in a more relaxed atmosphere. (Relaxed but not less than 100% safe.)

    I am in the north Lot-et-Garonne about 40 minutes south of Bergerac and its airport. I am a mature single man in the final stages of completing the renovation of an old stone farmhouse. I have done most of the work myself and am looking for people might have some skills to help me or who are looking for some hands-on training. There is a mini-digger and dumper here as well as most building equipment needed. Amongst the building and finishing work left to do there are some other planned projects such as digging a duck-pond and fish-pond. Inside the house where work has been completed there is still help needed with the transition from finished-building-work to house-and-home.
