Re: New Alpha Mega store

I like Alpha Mega so I thought I would pop in to the new one to have a look. The parking on the ground level was full (it's not that large) so was directed to the roof level. There were lots of spaces available so I parked and went to the lift. This wasn't working so I tried the stairs. Unfortunatel...

Re: Parliament to scrap third-country worker guarantees, change rent control law

This is good news and long overdue. It possibly applies to guests from 3rd countries you invite for a holiday, which is even better news.

Re: 17 new municipalities proposed as part of local government overhaul (maps)

I have to say, as a resident of Emba, I am disappointed to learn my village will be joining the Little England municipality. I would have preferred to join with Paphos. Ah well, I will just have to get used to drinking John Smiths, wearing union jack underpants and loosing my Cypriot friends. ;)

Integrated fridge/freezer problem

Can anyone recommend someone to fix this problem: I have an integrated fridge/freezer where the doors have started opening on their own. The unit is fixed in place and can't move. I have tried to adjust where I can, to no avail, but I'm not able to do much due to a dodgy leg. So I need someone who c...

Re: Sensational Guitar Playing

Good music will be found in all genres. I have seen Segovia live, he was exceptional. I also love Trout Mask Replica (have it in the car).

But if you want to be completely blown away, dip into the contemporary folk scene. There is some amazing stuff there.

Re: First public statement by Bishop of Morphou after his remarks on gays

It is worth noting that, in the Cyprus orthodox church, the word of a bishop is the word of god. Therefore god thinks gay men smell. He's right, many I know smell very nice indeed. Better then a number of straight men I know, and noticeably better than the orthodox priests I have occasioned to walk ...

I agree with all HIC and bromerzz say. I have had no problems with Transfer wise at all. That includes transfers to countries within and outside Europe.

I also rate Andy Phillips. I have bought 2 cars from him and they are good as new and trouble-free. He will take a trade-in if needed.

Re: Armenian Genocide

Absolutely right HIC. If you look at where there is most racial prejudice in the UK, it is in the rural and provincial areas where there is little mix of people. If you look at the areas where there is a good mix, then there is little prejudice. It is all about fear of the unknown. But some people l...

Re: Armenian Genocide

Recognition of the Armenian genocide is long overdue and I can't understand why the UK doesn't stand up and recognise it as well. I too had an Armenian Cypriot friend who explained it all to me. Hundreds of men, women and children marched naked out of Turkey without food, or anything else for that m...
