Re: Fascinatingold laws

A very interesting read! Paras 157-159 are amusing. Thank goodness they provide a definition of a corpse. I would never have guessed. :lol:

Re: They're dropping like flies

I think a lot of it has to do with whether the writer/speaker is simply being lazy or not. Textspeak is the ultimate lazy way of communication. Yes, you get the drift eventually, but is it too much effort to spell words out - if possible....? Last night I as watching the BBC news item about M&S's fi...

Bank of Cyprus message re browser

Logged on to BoC web site as usual today, only to be greeted by a message saying I am using an out-of-date browser.

I'm using a MacBook, with 2019 version of Safari, 12.1.2. I don't believe there is a more up to date version.

Anyone else get this message?

Re: Immigration today (Weds 23/10/19)

But if these agencies are in effect bribing officials to queue jump, then I don't care whether it is the accepted norm in this country, I don't want to promote it here. Private health care is legal. Bribing officials is not. Is there any evidence that agencies are bribing officials? I doubt it. I w...

Re: ...and one of the best restaurants in Limassol is?

We can second HiC's recommendation. We came across it - but didn't try it for years - when visiting Theses furniture shop and the now-defunct Mosaic Collective, both in St Andrews Street. A gem of a taverna. Unassuming from the outside but well worth the visit. As an aside, St Andrews Street is a fa...

Fat, round tomatoes that taste of nothing.
That reminds me of M&S being taken to task a few years ago for labelling some of their tomatoes as "grown for flavour" :roll:

Re: Thrips infestation on ficus

I tried various bio/organic treatments on a sick ficus but none worked. The root treatment is a must - I don't think any bio treatment targets the roots, which is essential. Ficus is a plant you have to keep an eye on - any leaf falling should be checked immediately. They don't like being allowed to...

Re: Sending wine to the UK.

It depends if it's a particular brand of wine you are looking for. The choice of Cyprus wines in UK and online is very poor. We wanted wine from a particular winery, hence why we were very pleased to hear of our friends returning to UK with a container. You have never been to North London have you ...

Re: Thrips infestation on ficus

Ficus is a very sensitive plant and needs both foliar and root treatment, esp the latter. As with most problems, the ideal person to see is the plant protection lady in Chlorakaas - more-or-less opposite the coffee shop and tyre place. She will sell you the right stuff, which is either a two-part or...

Re: Jamie Oliver “Veg” book

Not a lot of help in this case, but I've been buying "Used" cookery and other books on Amazon over the last year, some at staggeringly good prices - a recent one cost £0.86 plus reasonably low postage, with the books being in almost pristine condition. There's one JO's Veg listed as used, but the pr...

Agree on the fewer mozzies, but most importantly, no little flies in my red wine!

Re: Geroskipou Bypass

There is already a bypass, from Kato Paphos past the hotels and onto the airport road. Although a bridge over the ravine to the Peugeot Garage be useful! ..and to the north, there is the motorway, although the final short road on to the old airport road could do with upgrading. So, is it a bypass, ...

Re: Where IS the most expensive Carlsberg in Paphos?

The OP started off describing the price of Keo at a bar in town as a "rip-off". So what do peeps think a rip-off is? I think a rip-off is charging far more than necessary (to make a decent living) for a daily staple - bread, potatoes, milk, etc. i.e. daily necessities. No-one if forced to pay over t...

Re: Where IS the most expensive Carlsberg in Paphos?

Strangely, no one has mentioned value for money. How can you equate a beer, especially a lager, with value for money? Personally, I hate the ice-cold type lagers (inc. Keo) that are sold here and in the UK. I'd rather have a glass of water. However, craft beers vary to a huge extent that no two bee...
