Twenty four new coronavirus cases confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY, three on Ithaka

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8775 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0885 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1396 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9187 €UR

Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g the
Post Office.
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.


Ten day weather forecast for Kefalonia:
This is an overall forecast, due to the mountainous terrain the weather can be very localised.

UK and Greece are among Europe’s worst countries for obesity. How are they turning things around?

The World Health Organization (WHO) has urged Europe to reverse its obesity “epidemic", which it estimates is causing at least 1.2 million deaths a year.

The UN agency says nearly 60 per cent of adults and almost a third of children across the continent are overweight or obese. Those rates are higher than in any other region of the world except for the Americas.

However, the WHO says the trend can be reversed - and two of Europe’s worst-affected countries are already trialling promising solutions.

Boris Johnson plucks food and fur bans from Queen's Speech

Boris Johnson has dropped plans to ban the import and sale of foie gras and fur from the Queen’s Speech after Cabinet ministers warned that the move is “fundamentally unconservative”.

The proposed ban, which ministers previously said would be implemented as soon as possible on animal cruelty grounds, has been abandoned as part of a bid to shore up support on the right of the Conservative Party.

Not a program I usually watch but I caught this guy's act and, although there's a tad of controversy about it, he's quite good at what he does. IMO.
