Photo Article from the Greek Hovel - another vile Athena legacy goes

We are almost there in removing the ghastly modern additions made to the 100 year old Greek Hovel by its former owner vile Athena. I was up there today pruning my olive trees at an incredible pace and almost the last legacy has gone.

I refer to the loathsome glass windows in metal frames and plastic shutters that covered them. As you can see, they are going.

Of course the rat room and bat room do not have windows at all just holes in the wall so this was just an issue for the main room upstairs where I have stayed when here in the past. We will now be removing the concrete blocks which are underneath these windows and replacing them with stone before, in due course, inserting new windows in wooden frames with traditional wooden shutters.

Pro tem the wildlife diversity now has full access to the living quarters. And that is a good reason why I shall not be staying here until that is rectified later this year.

Cineworld – the legals have landed: not good news

Drowning in debt Cineworld (CINE) was in a hole when Covid struck. It had agreed the $2.1 billion purchase of the Canadian chain but with all of Cineplex’s theatres going darker than Justin Trudeau’s face on party night, thanks to the shutdown, and with Cineworld’s existing 787 theatres also shuttered, going ahead would have been financial suicide.
