Re: Please settle a wager .

Good grief to original poster...do you know how nature works? Ivy can be a bastard but if you cut it low down eventually you can be clear ...anythig upstream that has has been cut will die off ...it's not rocket science.

FOrgotten what thew topic was...sheesh!

Regardless of many apparent crap situations in my life, I consider myself to be an incredibly lucky person. Could anyone recommend an orphan children's charity that might be interested (for next year) in a good supply of organically (and lovingly grown) vegetables ...I know of one (sort of) in Herak...

Re: Cost of Living

That is an admirably Mr Micawber attitude, Kilkis. We wrestle with money the whole of our lives- so, the obvious answer to the question 'how much do you need to live in Crete? is: 10% more than you've got. In truth, the unhappiest person I know is a chap I was at college with who's now a multimilli...

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

I sympathies for your plight and agree these neighbours don’t give a duck for anything to do with nature. To me it doesn’t make sense for you to be concerned about contaminated poo and wee from either the sheep or goats – the weed killed surroundings wouldn’t have provided any forage and generally s...

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...
