Funerals

Sorry it's a morbid subject, and I also posted this question some years ago, but it seems like it may become relevent to me soon. I have written to several undertakers on Crete, and not one of them has replied. I wrote my question in Greek and English. I have had non Greek friends and aquaintances p...

Chimney sweep

I had the phone number for a chimney sweep named Dragomir Dragoev (Drago). The number no longer works. Does anyone know how to contact him, or the phone number of another sweep?

Swimming pool tiling

As our own pool tiler is away at this time, we are searching for a professional swimming pool tiler to price a job for us.

Any recommendations for a tiler in the Apokoronas area would be appreciated.

Re: Residence permits

Thank you for the replies. I am a little confused because when we first arrived here (22 years ago) we were both issued yearly permits. Then the next time, a 3 year one. I was issued a blue permit in 2010, but in 2012, my wife was issued a beige one. I do remember that there was a long delay in rece...

Residence permits

We have a client who has asked us the difference between 2 residence permits issued here. The first reads: Βεβαίωση Eγγραφής Πολιτή Κράτους Μέλους της Ευρωπαϊκης Ενοσης which loosely means "Certificate of registration of a citizen of the European Union". It is beige in colour. The second o...

Break ins

I have been informed today that the car that ran me off the road recently is the vehicle and it's occupants being sought for the spate of break ins in the area. Where are they hiding? Do you recognise the pick up with it's fabricated number plate? Lets chase them to ground. https://www.youtube.com/w...

Robberies

Very nearly run off the road by this pick-up between Xerosterni and Vamos this morning. I turned around and followed the car to the outskirts of Kefalas. The pick-up was definitely suspicious. 3 occupants, the driver wearing paint stained clothes and saying he was from Pakistan. The number plate obs...

Does anyone know of an experienced olive tree pruner, who is able to shape the trees to provide a parasol of shade. All cuttings to be removed.

Re: Isolation boards

Not sure if this helps, but Rockwool is available here. Great fireproof and sound insulation. I will try to remember where I bought the rolls for my own house. I am pretty sure it was the builders' merchants near the National Road in Kalives.

Re: Good Beef

Should you ever have cause to either pass (As I do sometimes), or be detained in Chania Prison, on the road to Omalos, you may catch site of their dairy herd. I did think I was halucinating, seeing not only cows, but Jersey browns. The butcher in Kalimitsi Alxandrou had a herd of Fresians not so lon...

Re: Paying a water bill online

Not a rant, but an observation. We have a huge amount of clients' water bills to pay each due date. The electricity and phone bills are no problem, as we do this by internet banking. Despite the water bills having a barcode on them, the water board do not have a barcode reader, so everything is done...

Re: Help!!

I had a phone call today from Piraeus bank, in answer to my email of 20th July, to see if I wished to pursue my payment to my life insurance policy, due on 27th July. I adopted a false voice, and told them that Mr.Bennett had died, and that his insurers would now be seeking compensation in the sum o...
