Re: Driving

Try going out very early in the morning when there is not much around. Remember to keep the white line on the drivers side (unless you are in a RHD car :-)). Go anti-clockwise at the roundabouts, should you come across one. Treat left hand turns as you would right hand turns in the UK and vice versa...

If you mean OPPOSITE what used to be `the old bakery', then yes. On the corner by the entrance to the car park on the front.

I think there a quite a few countries that want the UK to succeed in leaving, because they want out too.

Yeah - ok, you need to take out the `m.' at the beginning if you are NOT on a mobile.

Re: Almond and coconut flour

I searched the 1000+1 website already as I thought it the most likely source. Thanks for the phone number. I will try later today. I am going in there this morning - I will ask. Does anyone have the phone number for the other Kalives shop that sells all sorts of goodies from the continent? Its name...

Re: Almond and coconut flour

Give Yiannis a call at 1000+1 in Kalyves, if he doesn't have it, he might know where you can get it or he may be able to order it for you 2825 100001.

Yes peebee, the creator of the app has mapped the world so if you did find yourself lost and you had wifi AND your device's battery hadn't expired then emergency services could pinpoint your location within three meters squared. That is probably the main flaw, no wifi, and I don't have data on my p...

Re: What3Words

I agree yin & yang. Three words are much easier to remember than a series of numbers and dots for longitude and latitude. An app that sends GPS co-ordinates directly to the other party would be a lot easier surely, you wouldn't have to remember anything. Does this app know the `3 word' location...

Re: Cupboard hinges

Purchased this morning, less than 5 minutes to fit, better design than the old ones, had to make 4 new holes in the door as bracket centres were slightly off. Bought a pair, just in case they operated slightly differently, total cost €8.30, bet it would be 2-3 times that in the UK. Thanks for your i...
