Re: SCAM.

I have had this twice in the last couple of days! Deleted, then contacted Cyta for verification. Haven't had a reply yet! Perhaps they will be able to block them somehow?

Getting a decent position has nothing to do with common sense and intelligence, more old boys network. Not just in Cyprus either.

Re: MEU3 application

It sounds as though you already have an appointment. I think just turning up will not do you any good! The admin lady says they are hectic every single day since Brexit! I don't know about social because we have the MeU1, which I forgot to mention, you also need the original and a copy each! Take wh...

Re: MEU3 application

Firstly, you need an appointment. This requires a visit, with passports to get the appointment. We went last week to the actual appointment, which was made about 5 weeks ago. We took 5 years of bank statements, (you can now print off 5 years yourself, I believe). Copy and original passport for both ...

We put down metal mesh around the plants. They leave it alone. Long lasting. You do have to pickle out the weeds in between though! Available at all DIY by the meter.

Re: Brexit - No deal and the implications.

The shortage of nursing and other staff isn't helped by new trained coming through either! The contraints placed on hospital budgets mean that even when they desperately need staff they can't afford to hire them! Same in teaching.

Neither is expensive and/or slow! Time will tell when it is being used. Remember you must get a carbon dioxide monitor. It can be lethal if you have a leak in the joins . :roll:

Does anyone know where I can buy Jeyes fluid? I know Home market have had it in The past but they don't seem to know when it will be in stock again. Super home and One stop do not stock it. Or is there anything that might replace it? TIA.

Re: Health status of Long term visitor

I think the cheapest treatment is likely to be the General I believe a private visit to a GESY doctor is €15 but not certain! Much cheaper to take out insurance before you leave UK with a travel insurance. I learnt the hard way years ago when I visited a friend for a week and was taken ill. I was on...

Re: Dermatologist or plastic surgeon ?

Absolutely agree. I had two suspicious blemishes biopsied and removed earlier this year with excellent results. I believe he is now with GESY. Due for check uo at end of the year. A lovely man and staff. Very informative. x I think as of yet Dermatologist's are not on the Gesy register. I go to the...

Dee, that is one I found online but I couldn't remember the name of the company. There doors and windows seem very impressive and I particularly liked the full width doors that could be opened in different ways.

There is Muskita on Mesogi avenue, right hand side from town. There is also the shop opposite Papa in town just below road level. Can't say about quality but you can see some examples.

Re: Changing GP under new Gesy

It depends on how long you have been registered. MOH has been registered since June so I will ask my doctor when I visit in October how we go on, unless someone changes before then and lets us all know. There doesn't have to be a reason, at least it has never been mentioned. In our case he is a good...
