Where have all the frogs gone?

When we came here in 2004, we had numerous Cyprus Tree Frogs not only in our garden but also in the surrounding gardens. Despite being incredibly noisy at mating time, we delighted in seeing them. For the past few years now we have not heard a single frog let alone seen any. Is this just our local a...

Re: Wheelchair

This is so sad. I was advertising a really good collapsible wheelchair on this forum only a couple of weeks ago and because I had no replies and needed the space, I donated it to a local hospital!

Can Anyone Help

A good friend of mine is desperately trying to help a family of Syrian refugees who lost everything in the conflict. They have seven children (!) and need a child walker, cot and any children's toys.

Re: Cordless vacuum cleaners ...

My wife wanted a cordless vacuum cleaner last year and we decided on a Hoover bought here. Initially suction was reasonable but after three months despite cleaning out various filters, the motor only whined and gave no suction. Replaced under guarantee, the second one lasted less than three months w...

Excellent Builder/Decorator

We had to have some complicated building repair work on the exterior of our house as well as wanting two bedrooms decorated. I found SAM in the local press and not knowing anything about him asked him to undertake one job. This was done within 48 hours but what impressed my wife and I were the follo...

Re: Where to take lost dog?

Sadly we had a very similar situation about 6 weeks ago when a beautiful, gentle beagle cross bitch was left on our front door step. Having fed her she would not move and looked pregnant, PAWS was full and could take no more dogs especially if they had not been vaccinated and neither could the dog s...

Re: Sunshine radio 2018 News

Maybe you all know of it, but a new to me, (?) an English radio station with no adverts, at the moment, and very easy listening is being strongly received in the Paphos District called "My Radio" on 94.4 MHz.
