What is the procedure to get my car repaired

I was involved in an accident. The other vehicle was not drivable and was towed away. Everything was done in Greek and I was too shaken to act intelligently. I don't even know the other driver's name. The other driver and me were covered by the same insurance company. I am fully comprehensive. My ca...

Meeting a cruise liner

I have a number of relatives who are on a cruise that, they are told, docks at Souda at 6.00am

Has anyone any idea at what time passengers can come off a boat?

Spelt flour and buttermilk

A recipe I want to try includes spelt flour and buttermilk.

Are these available in Crete/Chania?

If so, does anyone know the Greek?

Thanks

Re: How do I catch a bus? Or taxi?

How do I catch a bus? Or taxi?

My car driving days are over and so I must find out how to catch a bus and how to get a taxi from home. All journeys are within Chania. First: the bus. A Cretan lady threw up her hands with horror that I hould want to use the bus service! All sorts of doom and gloom with the story of the bus driver ...

Camera on my desktop

I have fitted a camera via USB port to my desktop prior to using Skype. How do I check if it is working?
I expect there is some transaction in Control Center but I can't find it. I am using Windows 7 Professional

Charging my Kindle

The only way I can recharge my Kindle is by connecting it to the USB port of my desktop computer and the charging rate is very slow and it stops charging when the computer goes to sleep due to inactivity. (Currently I play a YouTube video when I need to leave the computer) When connected to my lapto...

OTE land line keeps going down

It started just once a week on Thursdays but now it is more frequent. I am not bothered about no phone but it means also no internet.

I stopped going to OTE and gave up on the "help line". It just comes back after 3 or 4 hours.

Any ideas?

Why 3 pounds?

I was watching UK TV and, in the (too frequent) ads breaks, I was asked by 3 charities to donate 3 pounds per month to save children, to save tigers and to save elephants. All very good causes and I don't mind their ads. But why THREE pounds? Any ideas why 3 not 5 or even the 10 I send to one charit...

The Chania car parking reservation system

It used to be shops wanting a space in front of their shop but now its is in residential streets. I refer to the policy of parking a clapped out motor bike in road-side space so that a car cannot park there. I can understand the frustration of a resident returning only to find they have to circulate...
