San Stefanos news and views / Re: Whats happenin'

There's a lot of activity in the Facebook groups. What's goin' on is: (1) people taking pictures of cats; (2) people taking pictures of their food. Off camera, the cats are probably nicking the food as well - so we can surmise that Brits and cats are getting fatter. Things are being spit-roasted, boiled and grilled at Manthos and other places. The webcam (above) reveals people lounging about on the beach outside Waves from about 11am until 6pm, with a thinning-out around 1pm as people go to Waves to take pictures of their food, watched by salivating cats. Given the, in my opinion rather strange, love some people have for cats I suspect it won't be long before somebody starts a fund to give all the stray cats in the village a mobile phone so they can post selfies to Facebook of their dinners. I recently bought a 170 degree sports video camera so I'll be able to take wide-angle mp4s of everybody's dinner, with a good chance of a photo-bomb by a moggie or two.

So I reckon that with a lack of murders, volcanoes, tsunamis, alien invasions or other interruptions, it's pretty much the kind of languid inertia you'd expect in a Greek holiday village in the summer. For more exciting fare, buy my fabulous collection of novellas "Fragments of tomorrow" in paper or Kindle versions on Amazon and read Digital Rites - there's a murder in Little Prince.

Same miserable old begger Jimbo. Much rather see photos if cats, dogs, meals, beaches, sunsets than read at your novellas, much more to do than read books.
Might see you soon, you owe me a drink for recommending the Halifax Clarity Card.

Jimbo is right, The Little Prince would be ideal for you, dead central in town, large rooms, lift to all floors, good views, restaurant downstairs, fabulous owners. Go for it

It was the smaller quads which they were thinking of banning from the roads, possibly 100cc and over will be OK,  but no decision made at present.

The accident rates for quad-bikes are appalling, so it's possible to have some sympathy. For once, this is not a money-making event.
Rubbish, accident rates for 2 wheeled bikes are worse. Which do you have experience with Jim?

Just use an overseas no commission credit card, as Jim and I do, this week I got 1.138, obviously no commission or charges, the best rate possible,

Also Mon Amour in Kavadadas and Illias in Avliotes, why are these not included also?

Aline, why have eateries outside of Agios Stefanos been included on "where to eat"? for example Brouklis in Arillas and Dyionasis in Afionas. If you are to include these then how about The Night Owl/ Panorama/Porto Timoni in Afionas, not to mention the numerous other restaurants/tavernas in Arillas.

Aline, on every single one of your "San Stefanos Online North West Corfu" pages it shows at the bottom of each page -- "Where to eat" and "Cafes and bars" surely this is advertising, something you're telling forum members not to do.

This is always a delicate issue. The general rule in the past has been to praise, but not condemn.

Personally, I think the idea is not to overdo it. There are some people on Facebook who post pictures of every meal they have, every sunset they've seen, and ever cat they stroked. Call me a miserable old fart (join the club) but I don't like looking at other peoples' dinners that much.

The Yammas Bar exists for a slightly freer exchange. Before Facebook there were long and heated arguments on here about whether the Romanza breakfast only gave Kumquat jam to a favoured few. There were stories, true and imagined - and the spectre of Vlad the Black Dog figured highly. Alas, those days have gone, buried under a pile of cats and dinners. But I would like the forum to remain a source of information and fun - not a review section.   

I still get my Kumquat jam, and yes, you are a miserable old fart Jim.

Dread to think what the exchange rate is in Ag Stef at present, with commission deducted of course.
