Re: How Bad Is The Greek Tax System?

From the article. it reads as though it will apply to pensioners, moving to Greece in the future, not to those already living here. Being tax resident in Greece, it doesn't affect me. If your income is £12,500 or less, you would pay nothing as a UK tax resident, but under the 7% Greek `offer' you w...

Re: Double glazing

We have decided that before next winter we need to replace our wooden doors/windows with shuttered double glazed units.

Re: Weather websites

Accuweather (which I ended up calling InAccuweather) Same here - always seemed to be waaay off. If you can be bothered, make a simple chart, check each forecast daily for a week or 2 and mark each site on a scale of 1-10 to test their accuracy. Don't bother trying that July/August as they will all ...

Re: Allergy/Pollen Count

Almost all the Avocados on sale in the Heraklion area have signs saying they're from Chania, Crete. I haven't seen any on sale from Israel. I actually prefer the ones that aren't from Crete, I find them rock hard, and they tend not to ripen very well. Quite likely from one of my friends' `garden' -...

Re: EOPYY Prescriptions

Medicines in the UK carry a `PL' code on the back of the packet - something like `PL 12345/6789' If you compare a big name branded product with a supermarket one, and they have the same PL code, they are the same, not just the same active ingredient, they are the identical product.
