Is everyone else like myself getting sick and tired of all these power cuts that have increased in frequency lately?

Ever since EON has been taken over I have suffered a torrent of "micro power cuts" that is causing damage to my PC and other electrical appliances!

The power seems to be down as well, so it takes longer to even boil a kettle of water or toast my morning bread, as well as my bills has suddenly risen by more than 30%.

It is about time these monopolies where taken to book and broken up to create some competition, rather them being the "gravy train" for the oligarchs that run this country!

Has anyone else had a policeman come round and check your passport then inform you that you have to register with the local mayor? I have and so has some others in the valeko tarnovo area and when I went to the mayors office they asked for my passport and house deeds and wanted to charge me 5lv. I queried this so the secretary phoned someone. then she informed me that it was not necessary!what on earth is happening?

hi. i do war-gaming with a friend from Draganovo. mainly ancients, but my preferred period is Napoleonic. I would like to get into map generated kriegspiel if anyone is interested. I also play electric guitar when i am not doing home improvement. I will be taking up some fishing as time allows, there are some reasonable spots around my nearest city .Valiko Tarnovo.

Winter will be the "acid test" of the ban, but I do see a distinct reduction in the number of customers in bars, garden or no! I hate smoking, particularly when I am eating, but I feel that perhaps for Bulgaria this legislation is premature! It should have been preceded with a public information campaign and an effort to regulate the sale of cigarettes, especially for the young.

Well I myself took in a street puppy last Christmas. I must say that it has presented some problems, chewing everything in sight and running around chasing the cat I also took in, but as I live alone it has had many benefits! But I do wish Flossy the dog would stop climbing up the woodpile chasing after "Gizmo" the cat forcing me to have to re-stack it all yet again!lol

I am writing this because there seems to be a big problem with dogs straying in Bulgarian streets getting run over and left to rot on the roads all over the place. There is another question of the quality of care in the villages where a dog is left tethered on a very short chain to eke out a miserable existence on a poor diet of bread and scraps with nothing to do but bark all day and night. What is your experience on this?

there are stereotypes in every country. I recently had to set a Bulgarian straight about the stereotypical "Brit" being a beer swilling, ill educated, drunken lout! I believe we left most of that back with the Xenophobes in the UK!

It is not so bad if you take the effort to learn the alphabet. it's just the old Bulgarian script that is difficult to read in my opinion. The UK translates everything for everyone and makes it too easy. I don't really want that much change.
