Re: Illegal grazing of Goats in olive trees.Advice please.

πλεγμα (galivinised or other metal grid fencing does not need any permission. It's likely only structures that require foundations would require permission. Metal grid fencing is pretty good value, easy to install and very effective. You can have many options for entry/exit points. I use this system...

Re: Mosquitoes

Many drugs actually cure illnesses completely. Which ones? There are many medical problems that fit more into the category of a "condition" rather than a disease and cannot be cured. Can you explain what you mean please This is from the link you posted: But all this doesn’t mean that suga...

Re: Mosquitoes

I know them by that name too but when I tried a google translate it came up with worms! I find using lavander oil on my pulse points and pillows if very effective to keep them away (and also gives a tranquil night). I've also had a big wasp problem - I know they are beneficial insects but when your ...

Re: Mosquitoes

I've experienced the exact opposite. I think it's important to check for any inadvertent mosquito farms after rainfall (empty pots etc). I was very scrupulous about that after the May 30 deluge, but I put the distinct lack of mozzies (for me) down to the snow we had in January. I wonder what this wi...

On the first occasion I bought a car from Supercars...

Re: Long term rent of my ptoperty in Roustika, Rethymnon area, Crete

I propose the price of 450 Euros per month

I agree Roustika is very pretty, but I think you are offering a tiny space for rather a lot of money. You don't mention a bathroom? Is it a new ladder to get upstairs :)

I think you might be lucky to rent it for 150 euros a month, not 450!

Re: Letting Tax

I think most European holiday destinations have some sort of (local *tourist tax*)? I would prefer it to be called *an environmental tax* and for all local revenues to be channelled back to the local councils to defray the *additional work needed* due to huge seasonal influx of people. But then agai...

Re: Greek Business

Didn't the NHS in the UK relatively recently throw away something like 10 billion pounds on what turned out to be a USELESS SYSTEM? How many thousands of euros (ironia) might it take to get an fully integrated Greek computer system up and running? The whole of Greece continues to be under the contro...

Re: Food Processor

Thank you Warwick - yes, it would be a new machine and is rated for use on a 230V supply.

Are you a serious cook - the Kenwood Chef Titanium sounds wonderful (but outside my budget for one thing!)

To Clio: I think *very old* would be anything born around 1930!

Food Processor

Does anybody know if there would be any *functional* reason (i.e. due to slightly different electrics) why a food processor bought in the UK wouldn't work here in Crete? (I think chances are that the manufacturers wouldn't honour a guarantee but I can't find the machine I want locally).

Thank you.
