40 inch FHD TV

Our lovely cleaner has absolutely knackered our tv by polishing the screen with something indescribable. This has left scratches all over the LCD screen, which we cannot remove. So a new television is required (not a new cleaner - she is too valuable). My wife has always complained that the tv scree...

Hi, A box should appear in the bottom left corner of your screen with IMG 4 numbers JPG, click on the arrow and open.
I could email them to you if that doesnt work
I’ve sent you a PM.

TV Stand

My wife has decided we need a new TV stand for our 40” tv. She does not, under any circumstances, want the tv to be mounted on the wall. We have a soundbar and Mag box, which would require storage on this. Is there anywhere we can go and see something locally, as we do not want to buy from Amazon if...

Marks and Spencer (Cyprus)

Marks and Spencer have just launched a new website for Cyprus which features online ordering and free delivery on orders over €60.

What a bonus for people like us who don’t really enjoy driving to Paphos to shop.

Many thanks to all who have offered suggestions or help. A kind forum member has offered to bring a copy of the book out when they return to Cyprus in a couple of weeks and that will be great.

Re: Flu Vaccine late arrival

We were at our doctor’s clinic today (GESY) and there was a conversation in the waiting room that one pharmacist in Polis had a supply of flu vaccine. You can buy it from him at €12 and take it to the doctor to administer.

Re: Jamie Oliver “Veg” book

Just checked Amazon.de and the price, without post and packing, is about double the price of the Amazon.co.uk price (€25 as opposed to £11.49). Looks like we shall wait for prices to fall.

Re: Tesla make televisions?

Mac and what size screen, for €200's I would not expect a large screen, meaning over 32'' a Tesla was on when I last went to this shop, looked OK. I did look on line for a UTube review but could not find one in English, only foreign languages. This is cheap, very cheap! http://www.stephanis.com.cy/...

Tesla make televisions?

A friend of mine needs a new television, ideally FHD, and discovered on http://www.stephanis.com.cy/nqcontent.cfm?a_id= that he could pick up a television made by Tesla for a very reasonable price which seemed to fulfil his every need. I know there is a school of thought that says “you get what you ...

Re: Kitchen Knives

This thread is one of the reasons reading this forum is so much fun. Lots of suggestions about very expensive (and desirable) knives but no suggestion about where I could buy them from. Our old knives - and they are old - are Sabatier. I found a set on Amazon at a good price yesterday. “Result,” I t...

My wife and I went to Immigration today to try and sort out our MEU3 documentation. My goodness ... I wish we had never bothered. We arrived at about 10.00 and went up in the lift. We had even managed to find a legal and easy parking space outside. The lift doors opened and we were assailed with the...
