Re: Argaka dam overflows

Interesting that nobody commented that topic. First, the photo is NOT showing Argaka dam, it could be Kouris dam... Second, without proper rainfall in recent weeks it could be mysterious that the dam overflows for a sudden. Reality is that Argaka dam as well as Ayia Marina dam and also Pomos dam are...

Re: Paphos-Polis Chrysochous road construction to finally start

I shall believe it when I see work commencing. I hope it does commence. But I have lost count of the amount of news articles on this topic. Well, this time it will happen very soon.

After more than 3 month lockdown, Fish tavern Timi Beach

After more than 3 month corona lockdown, I was the very first customer today lunchtime, when they just opened the tavern. As I was very early (before 12 AM) I had time to look a bit around which changes happened in all these month. First what I realised, it was ever so spotless clean indoors and out...

We produced 12kw of electricity and have used exactly 12 kw.
John, I wonder how many kW/h you produced on a windy, cold day like yesterday, or today? Must be much more than the 12 kW/h you mentioned in your post.?

This is the fourth time this spring I had it for lunch, normally together with potatoes and ham, but today a quicker version with potato dumplings (Ital.Gnocci)...
