Re: New pub peyia

There are other charities on the island that also help people who were in the forces and many smaller groups and individuals offer their support. Large organisations don't suit everyone. Such a shame that it is necessary for veterans to have to depend on charity.

Re: Are airlines tracking YOU?

No idea about airlines, but certainly some websites for accommodation do. I read years ago that it was a good idea to clear all cookies at the end of each browsing session (in fact I clear history each time I log out from the browser) and found that works.
