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

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1404
1 USD = € 0.8562

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.

Microsoft Windows starts telling users off if they try to download Google’s Chrome browser

Microsoft has started telling off Windows users if they try and download the rival Chrome browser.

If users navigate to the page to download Chrome on their Windows computer, they will see an array of pop-ups that gently chide them for trying to download Google’s alternative.

Instead, they are encouraged to use Microsoft’s built-in Edge browser.

Both based on Chromium (unlike Firefox), I've heard Edge is actually pretty good  :dunno:

Strange story from Katelios: a sailing yacht was "hijacked" and ended up beached on rocks outside Katelios.

Gold Star returns! BSA to reveal new 650 single at Motorcycle Live

One of British motorcycling’s most famous names, BSA, will unveil an all-new Gold Star model at Motorcycle Live on Saturday, 4 December 2021.

What we can tell you for now is that the new engine features liquid-cooling, a four-valve head with twin overhead camshafts and twin balancers to smooth vibration. The tubular cradle frame also has an authentic look, with wire wheels, conventional forks and twin shock rear suspension.

The retro machine was developed in the UK but will, at least for the present, be made in India – with plans to assemble initially petrol bikes at a new factory near BSA’s historic home in Small Heath, Birmingham, set for next year.

Expect pricing to be between £5000 and £6000, with production planned for January and bikes being available in UK dealers by March.
