Good morning Martin,

I’ve just spent an enjoyable 20 minutes wondering through the pharmacy, it is the best I’ve ever seen and the robot area is fascinating, I would like to have seen, or being able to walk for further into the mobility Section, just so I could have a look around.

Excellent bit of marketing, thank you for sharing it.

Celestron NatureDX binoculars. Nearsighted and with a squint to boot, I can focus on anything using both eyes. From my flat in Lawrence Hill, Bristol, I can clearly see the detail of the TV mast in East Dundry - about 8 miles away.

Pricey, but highly recommended and worth the money.

I bought an Opticrom monocular, no stereo vision but being less than half the size makes it great for hiking and also takes up less room in the MH.

Mine are 42ml x10, Mike. Margaret’s choice on the advice of the shop. Right on the limit for hand held over long distances. At 8 miles I almost needed a tripod. I don’t think that it’s a question of the magnification with these as with the crispness of the image, the depth of focus and the total lack of chromatic aberration or flaring. For things up to a few 100s of yards, the optics deliver a very impressive 3D image.

Re: Purchases from the EU

Ernie. We didn’t pay it in EU so no claim back. But it was not since we left. But don’t think that will change. 

Warranty again another anomaly I expect. Ours must be still covered.

What about VAT? Do you still get the EU VAT back when you pay the UK one? 

At least they have knocked off those punitive VED rates for motorhomes costing more than £40K. 

OTOH, how about the EU extended warranty?

I am so glad that we got the European bug out of our systems before Brexit. Especially since Covid.

Having said that, insuring it to drive back from France. In our case, was fraught with difficulty but I did solve it

That was before we left the EU, now a new set of 'rules', some as yet
not fully understood by traders and public alike.

I think folk here need to be advised to be cautious when making
purchases from the EU, so that they are not caught out. Have a read
