Carpet cleaner

We wish to purchase a "Ewbank style" carpet cleaner in the Chania area. Can anyone help with information about where we might find one.

Hearing Aid (moved topic)

I finally have to admit what my wife has been saying for years; I am going just a tiny bit deaf.

Can anyone give me the name and contact details of a specialist who could supply me with a hearing aid. (Preferably someone who speaks English quite loudly.)

Free update to Windows 10

Microsoft have inserted a new symbol onto my task bar. It invites me to reserve my free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I think that all Windows 7 users are getting this. Any opinions or comments? Why would I want the upgrade? And how can I stop the beggars sneaking it onto my computer when I ...

Re: heating source

We installed oil fired central heating (radiators) in a house with no existing pipework. The company concerned experienced no particular difficulties and did a neat and tidy job. We use about 400 litres of oil each winter. Our house has thick stone walls which may provide some degree of insulation.

Re: Syriza Grants Legal Status to Gay Couples

Being a total agnostic, I also try my best to do no harm to any living creature, but if all creation was homosexual the human race would not exist, But why any legal status should be desired by couples of any sexual persuasion in this day and age baffles me, taking things a little further on, if th...

Re: Renewal Of IKA Book

We renewed our books at the IKA office near Souda earlier this week; no problem if you don't mind getting up early. When we made it to a window the process took about 2 minutes. No papers were required (we had passport, tax papers etc with us but did not need them) and the renewal consisted only of ...

I have dealt quite successfully with couriers here in the past but the point is that in both the cases I refer to the parcels were deemed to be undeliverable by GLS in Athens and were returned to consignee from there. They were never passed to ACS and never came to Crete. In my experience this is a ...

Postal delivery problems

Like many people here our postal address is a PO Box. During the last few months two items ordered on line from England have failed to arrive. On investigation we found that both had been returned to sender. In one case I was able to confirm the the parcel had been sent by "Royal Mail Internati...

Thanks for all the advise and comment. I have had a stroll round Chania (Public, Kotsopoulos and Expert) but concluded that I would be much better of having something built locally. So, after a tour of Kalives I have ended up ordering a desk top tailor made to my requirements from Theo of X-Files. T...

New computer

My poor old steam driven desk top is definitely ready for replacement. Can anyone recommend a shop, in or around Chania, where I can see what is available and talk to someone knowledgeable about what I want.

I quite fancy an "all in one" does anybody have any comments about that?
