Re: Free healthcare comes at a price

A friend has pointed out a glitch in the system. Her PD prescribed one packet of 28 tablets for one month. But the pharmacy does not hold packets of 28, only 14 and can only issue one packet under that prescription, so my friend is left having to pay for the second packet. Presumably, glitches like ...

Re: Why things sometimes don't work...

Many years ago, my late husband decided to see if he could repair the electrics on the washing machine, as certain programmes no longer worked. He removed the top cover to expose a mouse, electrocuted across the circuit board. Once the mouse was removed, the machine worked properly again.

Re: Anyone have an Amazon Alexa?

There is a joke currently doing the rounds ...
A man told a joke to his family during dinner.
The wife laughed.
The son laughed.
The daughter laughed.
The kids' friends laughed.
Alexa laughed.

And of course, the best jokes all have a grain of truth to them ...

Re: Charges for ATM

Haven't used one so cannot say from experience, but from what I have heard/read it varies depending on card used and amount withdrawn. I think you can expect a charge of €3 if you are lucky!

Re: Time to check your Β£20 notes!

Thanks for the reminder. I am sure many keep some sterling cash in case an urgent trip to the UK is required.

Re: Integrated fridge/freezer problem

Slightly facetious reply - do you have a clever dog or cat that has worked out how to open the doors? Alternatively, if you have cleaned the door seals as Trev suggested and there is no improvement, then Petros Sofocleous should be able to help. Tel 99632841 His shop is just off the traffic lights a...

Re: Replacement Uk Passport

When my late husband had to renew his passport, DHL texted him to tell him of its arrival, and for him to go to their depot by the Law Courts to collect. So much for the paid for door to door service! When he arrived, the staff were busy so pushed a pile of packages from the Passport Office towards ...

Re: Bank charges

If you can do the transaction on-line, I think the current BoC charges for euro transfers to non-BoC account are in the region of €3 or €5 per transaction below €10000.
If you can get onto your Cyprus bank's web page, they should have a list of current charges.

....and also disposable BBQ's and from glass bottles which can concentrate the suns rays onto dry grass and shrubbery.
Not just glass. I understand the sun's rays can be refracted through plastic bottles too....
