In June 2007 I asked my car insurance in the UK for a cover note for the new car I was buying.
Still waiting for it now!

Nicolaou Electronics ltd in Paphos. I have ordered a gizmo to produce a high pitch noise which allegedly will deter the dog from barking. It supposedly more powerful and is solar powered. It might help your dog problem. I have the same problem. I have neighbours who lock the dogs up with all the windows open and they bark all day.

So not on theme, but might address the cause of the theme.

This site is great for earplugs - https://www.snorestore.co.uk/

These https://www.snorestore.co.uk/acatalog/e ... tml#SID=16 are the best ones I've ever used - so easy to insert, comfortable, and effective too.

But of course it's a UK site so you'll have the import hassle now.

I once went for a job interview in Reading. They wanted to offer me the job but they were waiting for their boss to come back from India first. He had gone over for Gandhi's birthday. A few phonecalls still had him there celebrating away. I gave up calling after a while, but to this day if anything is delayed to the extent that it is obvious it is never going to arrive, I refer to it as Gandhi's Birthday.

Sometimes things from Amazon can be delayed for 3 months.. That was the length of time it took for a dog lead to get to us.

I buy the little orange ear plugs as they improve my shopping experience in many shops, particularly jumbo and Philipos, funnily enough I buy them from philipos. Although sometimes I feel ear defenders are required for jumbos or the dog food / tissue section of Philipos.

We very rarely get to Philipos, but I know what you mean about Jumbo.

For years we've been buying our ink cartridges from Inkredible in the UK. Brilliant product, brilliant prices, brilliant service. Delivery to Paphos PO was typically 10 days. We stocked up with them prior to Dec 31st last year, but eventually ran out.

Two months ago we placed an order with them and we are are still waiting, with no-one knowing where the package has got to.

Agree Lloyd, I ordered an outdoor clock and air temp it took two months to get here and when opened it was crushed, fortunately they pay back faster than they now deliver, great shame as I was a regular buyer, not any more...

You can of course use the fast delivery but it makes your Item so expensive it is just not worth it.
