Re: Place in the Sun

Point is in that program it is not natural they are told to hold hands while filming, nothing to do with love and devotion, We have been married for 53 years and would never hold hands.

Has anyone noticed that the couples who are shown around the properties that they are always holding hands.

It is very unnatural and false, they were told to hold hands, nothing to do with lovey dovey...how many of us old married types hold hands?

Re: Winter Fuel Allowance

I thought that heating allowance for ex-pats had long gone no matter at what age, if this is not the case please tell us more.

Maybe this is for UK OAP aged people only, and nothing to do with permanently living here.?

Re: Cyprus weather forecasting.

You must remember Cyprus is a small island, weather that is forecasted can just sail on by, although Weatherunderground got it about right for this week.

Re: Braun wet/dry electric razor

Our GP Darrow did a driving licence medical (if you could call it that) it was sufficient to get my DL renewed with no problems, the GESY GP at the Evangelismos would not though do this for me, so I changed GPs, it was easy enough to do, there was no charge for the Medical certificate..

Re: Covid 19 vaccination

Looks like the ''Oxford'' vaccine looks the best option as it does not need to be kept so low in temperature, well done the UK...lets all hope we get the chance to get it done and soon.

The cost of Amazon.

I have been a regular Amazon buyer but has anyone noticed the shipping charges now, the items I was interested in purchasing the shipping charge was more the the item cost, I guess Amazon do not want overseas buyers.?
