Καλό μήνα

Nine new cases of coronavirus confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1399
1 USD = € 0.8544

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.

BMW And Audi Drivers Are The Most Likely To Be Psychopaths

The survey suggests both BMW and Audi drivers are more likely to exhibit psychopathic traits such as superficial charm, a grandiose sense of self-worth and a lack of remorse or guilt.

Skoda owners sat in the lowest spot, scoring an average of just 3.2.

In perhaps the least surprising data - personalised number plate holders had double the level of psychopathy (13.8) than those with regular plates (5.3).

Electric car owners scored a whopping 16.0 out of 36 in a result Elon Musk was probably delighted to see.

Munich WW2 bomb blows up near station, wounding four

Four people were hurt, one seriously, when a World War Two bomb blew up on a railway construction site in the German city of Munich.

Unexploded wartime bombs are frequently found in Germany and prompt big evacuations, but most are defused by experts without exploding.

Listeners in stitches as Radio 4 presenter makes X-rated horse racing gaffe live on air

Radio 4 presenter made an X-rated gaffe live on air when giving horse racing tips, to the glee of listeners.

Garry Richardson was naming his picks for Wednesday’s racing action when he accidentally slipped up. He had highlighted Seymour Sox - trained by Alaistar Ralph - in the 12.40 race at Haycock.

However, Richardson made a classic gaffe that would have been more at home on The Simpsons when he called the horse ’Seymour Cox’.

Not to be confused with this bloke.
