Nope - been in the garage for years so a few more weeks won't matter. PM me when you want to collect.

Re: Lawn mower and shredder wanted

Sold both of my lawnmowers and shredder as we thought we had sold our house, only to be badly let down at the twelfth hour, so now need to replace them. Does anyone have either for sale or can direct me to a reasonably priced outlet. Thanks I have a Flymo electric hover mower that is never used, yo...

Re: Transferring funds, and pink slips

Yesterday our accountant submitted our tax return with no problem after we gave him photocopies of the relevant online banking statements for the months we transferred income from the UK. Re transfers, we have used Currencies Direct for many years and would recommend them to anyone. I think account...

Re: Ferry to Cyprus?

Thanks for the replies! Are there any ferries from Rhodes? There is one that leaves Rhodes at 11.00 on Sundays, arrives at Sitia around 22.00, and then on to Heraklion, arrives around 01.15. Price €28 / €29 I actually meant Rhodes to Cyprus ? Surely there must be a ferry between the two islands? Rh...

Re: The new National Road

Apparently it will cost and eye watering 1.8 billion euro! Major infrastructure projects always go well over budget though :) It is needed - why? Probably someone has a friend that will get a large amount of money for going through his land. There are very few parts of the existing highway that cau...

Hmmm strange, we are not tax resident here either, but our accountant always wants the `pinks' when he does our tax return.

Re: Highway Roadworks near Aptera

Went through there at 11.00 this morning towards Chania - no police, just badly timed lights - about 12-15 getting through each time, delay time was about 10 mins.
Coming back about 1 hour later, there was 1 policeman at Aptera end, letting around 100 cars at a time each way, delay time about 5 mins.
