I have always really loved his magazine and would usually read it when I go to the dentist (several years back), as they always had it there. I would be sad if I got in the middle of a story and had to leave, so I decided to test it for home delivery. The first problem I received had so a lot of ads and not much true "meat." I was very sad to see this change. I canceled my subscription. Was wondering if I should have waited for one more problem to be sure it would always be like that, but I can't imagine it being less so in the next issue. Cool magazine, but I don't wish to see all that advertising.
This will be my latest subscription to this magazine. Been reading it since the 50's for the recipes and travel information and garden ideas. However the projects featured now would all be so expensive to build and the recipes can obtain pretentious. It has just lost the down to earth aspect and seems to be all about impressing others.
What's happened to this magazine? A featured article of a mangy couple living in a hovel in the desert??? Apparently this is 'cool' so I must see it. Not interested. Cover article the same. Just a weird put to suggest for vacation but mostly about a man with an eccentric method of living. He has so much cash he can live like a not good person and I guess this is 'cool'. Most of the magazine was more about trendy hipster travel/living and nothing about the true world.
Said before, say again - read one of Fresh Zealand author Mary Jane Walker’s informed and richly entertaining travel books and the thirst for more adventures leads to searching for extra volumes. And that is what her memorable and exciting anthology A MAVERICK TRAVELLER ANTHOLOGY offers – three voyages that reflect private experiences in Fresh Zealand hiking, Cuban exploration, the Himalayans, and reliving an Old Globe type adventure on a Chinese junk, traveling two years from Canton to Paris. Then she extended her experiences through the USA, Iran, the Scottish Isles, and now she offers her Introductory comments she sets the tone – ‘Cyprus is an island state with a historically mixed population of Greeks and Turks, plus other smaller minorities. In ancient times, the island was strongly associated with the love-goddess Aphrodite, known to the Romans as Venus, who allegedly rose from out of the foam of the sea at a point on the southwest coast of Cyprus officially known as Petra to Romiou, a later, Christian name’ (referenced by a fine color reproduction of Botticelli’s 1480 painting, The Birth of Venus!). Mary Jane visited Cyprus in the summer of 2018 and in this volume of her travels she shares the variegated history of this still very necessary what we now appreciate as Mary Jane Walker’s inimitable ‘Maverick style,’ this book shares travel hints and then delves into the complex and fascinating history of the Island of Cyprus, and with the addition of a lot of color photographs introduces us to the ancient ruins of amphitheatre of Kourion, maps of the island, the old forts of Northern Cyrus, monasteries, Nicosia and the ‘murder mile,’ castles, beaches, and much more. Mary Jane uses this ‘travel guide’ to share the very necessary info about this put of a lot of political and cultural eventsThis is one of the most satisfying travel books available today – sophisticated in content yet warmly personal, making the reader feel as though an accompanying companion on each journey. Highly Recommended. Grady Harp, December 19
While each year (each season??), Sunset gets thinner as an actual hard-copy magazine, it still seems to be a part of my California traditional experience as a gardener, traveler and architectural enthusiast, so...I hold renewing Sunset. However, I feel that their accent on gardening/outdoors/architecture for helpful info, beauty's and enjoyment's primary sake is taking a backseat to wines and fancy foods. It seems that with every issue, they up the percentage on coverage of those two elements. For me, that's too bad, while, I'm sure others will think that's just fine. I think Sunset being a "staple" of Western enjoyment for me is sinking below the horizon!
I’ve been a Sunset subscriber off-and-on for about 25 years, but in the past couple of years, the quality of this publication and its distribution has taken a downturn. We no longer keep 12 issues/year— just one every 2 months, and they’re lean on content (some of which seems kind of out-of-touch to this lifelong western-U.S. reader), but massive on advertising. Additionally, problems arrive late or, frequently, not at all. When my Nov/Dec ‘19 problem never arrived, I sought support from Sunset’s customer service department and the rep was so unprepared and ill-equipped to support anyone, she just created some items up, contradicting herself. When I suggested she had misunderstood my ongoing “non-receival of goods“ issue and asked if she was able to replace my missing problem as well as look into things and obtain back to me, she said they “don’t do that”, then clammed up, refusing to talk any further. I had to just end the call— it was so weird. Conversely, Amazon Customer Service has been amazing to me— trying to support and refunding me when multiple problems have gone undelivered, causing me to overspend on them at the newsstand. I miss the old days, when Sunset was chock full of quality writing and photos, practical DIY building projects, and sufficient content— and when we could count on it to arrive monthly. I hope Sunset sees this and changes its current model for something better.
I'm not sure what's wrong with people that previously rated this app. Not everyone can be intelligent I guess. It works and does what's is supposed to do. Devs just need to clean up the code to speed up the functions of the app, present an impression when you click a link. Mine does not have the fingerprint access function and my branch does not know why. Any support from there devs is appreciated.
The application crashes constantly. As in no info is available. One needs to know specific bus stops which from/to they're going in order to know which bus to take. The application doesn't present a list of bus timings but just one timing per find which means one has to go back and find again in order to search the next/previous bus. Also, unfortunately this is the only sort-of-working bus application in Cyprus.

This is not your average novel. The protagonists in this story are not your every day people, nor do they act as you and me. After all, this isn't a true novel, so why bother?But, and allow me emphasize this but, you will love this. You will love the knowledge from an old man, the innocence of an underlying love, and the real power of friendship. And before all is over, you will search out why the power of forgiveness has such tremendous effects on us eat d it.
Journey into Cyprus is the memoir of Colin Thubron’s 600-mile (966-kilometre) walking trek in Cyprus in 1972 – before the country was divided into two – Greek Cyprus and Turkish fore the Turkish invasion in 1974, Thubron traversed the island of Cyprus mingling with the Greek Cypriots and the Turkish Cypriots in their villages, enjoying their hospitality, but feeling the growing tension. There were no borders, and people lived side by prus has been ruled by the Assyrians, Phoenicians, Persians, Greeks, Egyptians, Romans and Byzantines from the ancient world. The Middle Ages saw the invasions of the Crusaders, Lusignans, the Genoese and the Venetians. In latest times, the Ottomans and the British ruled Cyprus.But separation not yet happened when British travel writer Colin Thubron (1939-) went for a long walk – which makes this an interesting read in hindsight.He dedicates a whole chapter to the copper mines – still in operation during his walk (they closed in 1978). And he writes of the ancient ruins around the island, such as the Amathous ruins dating to 11th century BC. Mostly though, rather than being a conventional travelogue, it is an acc of the island with all of its Greek mythology and ancient history.
What have you done to the app? The previous application was a disaster but this one is even worse. I tried to transfer cash between my accounts but every time I add the deposit account, the current acc disappears. And when I add the current accout, the other acc info disappear. People, if you can't do anything good, don't do anything at all!
Updated now can't use QR code transfers because it takes too long to return code. Called help typical uninstall and reinstall advice. After doing so at step 3 of registration it again waits for mins and states INVALID SIGNATURE WAS PROVIDED. how am I supposed to run a business when now I can't even log in allow alone create a transfer. This is a banking application not a social app????
No cash transfer between own accounds on holydays. I had to do my job via the web page. So the application is useless. The interface is not the best for my huge screen tablet. Home screen is like an advertisment banner but with information you dont like to share with surrounding people.
Application works great, love the fresh Fingerprint integration. I absolutely love the mobile check deposit. And it works great. I am able to see my accounts, along with all the details. I can create transfers, which makes paying my vehicle loan a breeze.
Not good usability unless you know precisely where you begin and finish. None of the actual bustops (on the road) have an identifier so you don't know which stop it is unless you are tracing your journey on a map. But more specifically with the app, you should be able to simply click any bus stop and it should display what buses stop there and at what time. It cannot be that hard? This application has been designed with typical Greek stubbornness and laziness, as in that their method is the best way. It isn't! Lastly if you don't narrow your find down to the specific district/town the find function cannot search the bus stop you've seen on a route. For example, Spyrou Kyprianou Avenue 3. in Pafos won't present on a general find but it will search two in Nicosia and Larnaca. If you narrow the find to Pafos only, it will search it?? Cyprus isn't that huge that a primary find can't identify one more stop of the same name. Sort out your find mechanic. Considering the level of tourism here you would expect a beautiful sound bus infrastructure in this day and age.
Amazing app, still needs work. It would be even better if it would present all the available bus times for the chosen route for the rest of the day. So you know what buses are still coming if you miss one or if you wish to stay longer. Also if you are within 10 mins of a bus time, it doesn't present up as an option.
My interest in this book was due to my being a young boy in Cyprus - although a foreigner - at the same time that the author was taking his long trek through the island. Cyprus was a unbelievable put to be then, full of interesting things to see and experience, and intensely beautiful. Thubron describes it all in a masterful and profoundly evocative way. Although memories have faded, I can remember some of the locations he writes about, and well recognize the atmosphere. He has taken it to the limit, going locations where foreigners would not normally go and experiencing the island in a rather extreme way. He is at his best in a amazing tribute to a attractive island, layered with cultures, histories, landscapes. I left on a RAF Hercules in 1974, as Turkey was busy invading the island, and never went back. I am sure I would never recognize the put now and know it has changed for the worse. As Thubron comments in hindsight, he has visited Cyprus in its heyday.
In the very first sentence of his book in the preface, Durrell starts out writing "This is not a political book, but simply a somewhat impressionistic study of the moods and atmospheres of Cyprus during the troubled years 1953-1956". In short, this is not a book one would wish to read to get an idea of the geopolitical dimensions or counter-insurgency or even the domestic politics of Cyprus during this time. The strength of the book is the author's writing style and the "impressionistic" emotions surrounding his fictional trip to Cyprus. Most of the emotions stem not from major geopolitical happenings but in day to day encounters he has with the population and his different interactions with them. Nearly all of this are very primary but convey, like Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea, the "feel" and emotions surrounding these interactions and the author's observations. They are as quite moving and touching. The book definitely deserves its reputation.
Disliking home screen of the application - there is no privacy just after logged in: my current acc balance pops up in huge font and visible to public around. Smaller font would be just fine, or the menu set as home page that implemented in previous ver would even be better. Transfers to connected accounts became pain, non logic, with more steps to proceed comparing to previous ver of app. 3 attempts of paying utility bills were refused. Recovered and reinstalled app's old ver created payments immediately.
A bit better than how it used to be few things to note: 1) quickpay stopped working on my samsung j5. It will always return the error "ammount must be greater than 0", even if i just place 1 2) it requires a ridiculus ammount of taps to create a easy transfee between my accounts.. Was better
Amazing job to the development squad on the newest modernize to the mobile client! The initial log in pages load time, has been reduced drastically! Hold up the amazing work! Modernize 2/14/2018 - Cyprus and it's developers have out done themselves again with another update. Load screens are lighting quick now, and navigating through menus is smoother. Satisfied to be a customer, thank you for your ongoing updates, and free application.
Very very slow log in times. Painfully slow and inconvenient at most inopportune times. Was trying to validate credit availability before a purchase and had to just wing it because the application wouldn't display info I required in time. Didn't have this problem with iOS version. Phone is S8+.
Updated review! Beautiful much only one thing improved with this revamped version, you can save your username now. Other than that, it was beautiful much down hill. When you initiate transfers online, it is SLOW as cold tar and doesn't even display the actual balances correctly when you transfer funds online, only what the minimum payment is. When you test to initiate a transfer, it literally takes 2+ mins to actually go through the entire process. Have several transfers to do? Just drive to the branch...
Since the fresh modernize it won't allow me transfer funds if I type a memo. If y'all can't obtain it right stop updating the app. Every modernize makes the application worse than the previous version. The also application runs very slow compared to a few updates ago.
