Re: Scrapping a car in Greece

For me the easiest and most stress free method to send my old car on its way was to go to my local car (and other things) official recycling place - in my case just about 11kms east of Rethymon.

Re: When are small fires allowed again?

Friend Barry from Whatford - use your *nous* *ie innate intelligence* e.g. if it's been too dry, then hold off burning, until it is more safe.

Re: Polecats

Is polecat the same as Zourida?

If you have overgrown areas e.g. vatos then that gives them save haven - cutting back *hidy-holes* is one option - a doggie would be a deterrent...but of course your older feline might not like that.

Greece imposed capital controls to stem a flight of cash from its banks in July 2015, when, at the height of its debt crisis, it faced bankruptcy and a euro exit. Unfortunately, Greece is still bankrupt. Please bring on the euro exit - at last the totally shafted younger generation might have a cha...

Re: Water Shortage

Am I to understand that filling the pool with drinkingwater for which I'm paying is illegal? Same for watering the garden? According to a mid aged Greek friend with connections to the water company, first fill of the pool should be by tanker. Top up via house water is accepted. Watering a garden is...
