Re: Driving

My father said something similar 45 years ago: 'Always assume every other driver on the road is an idiot'. Good advice, as it turned out he was right.

Re: Could this be true?

My question is simple really – could it be possible to pay 3 years work of property taxes (on any empty and possibly abandoned property) and then be able to get legal title? Μόνο στην Κρήτη! :) I have heard of this from several different sources but have never been able to find out if it's true or ...

Re: UK Food in Supermarkets

Tim, although I've never been inside it myself, I should think you'd find of most of what's on your homesick shopping list at "The English Shop," on the Kritsa Road about 1km outside Agios Nikolaos. (Not sure about the industrial size loo rolls though.) M. Hi Mixos Yes. they do. Just thou...

Re: UK Food in Supermarkets

Would certainly be an improvement on what is currently on offer, kamisiana. Or is it me? Do the indigenous population have a special technique? I wish I'd left some of my furniture in England and loaded up the van with Andrex instead!

Heinz Salad Cream
Colman's Old English Mustard
Branston Pickle (original and small chunk)
Daddie's Brown Sauce

If you could arrange these to be sold in the Sitia area, markatsos, I'd be extremely grateful.

Also, toilet paper with decent sized squares of paper. Just sayin' .....

Re: Exchanging residence certificates for biometric residence cards

From the article:

*The clause is addressed to companies and individuals with large bank accounts*

Re: How long should it take to purchase a house?

Generally the sales process is faster than in the UK - just a few weeks from handshake to completion. Is your seller possibly caught in a chain and is unable to complete with you until they complete on their next property? Just a thought.

Re: Timber Merchants

Hi

I assume you're referring to Maria Petroulakis on the main road; if so, I agree. Did you know there's another timber merchant about half way down the airport road on the left? I've used them a couple of times and they hold a reasonable stock of reasonable quality timber.

Re: Cats in Rethymno

Our corner of our village used to be heaving with cats. Woke up on Midsummer's morning and there were only two left. Asked my neighbour where they'd all gone and she waved her arms to intimate that they'd spread out up into the hills, as if that were a mystical thing cats did on Midsummer's Day. Yea...

Yes. My elderly and wise neighbour took me to task for watering my plants every evening. Every other day she said, wagging her finger in admonishment. I have to say they look okay on it.
