Re: Small World

The China news source is a little out of date, caption say the photo was shot in March 2015 - or maybe it's prophetic.

Re: Sending a package to the UK

Jeff, Its worth being aware that Nomad carriage costs are based on volume rather than weight - should make their price for shipping heavy items like olive oil very competitive. I always use Nomad for shipping my olive oil to UK - helps that my UK home is a 30-min drive from their Peterborough base. ...

Re: Olive Fly (Dacus Oleae)

I'm ashamed to admit that through a combination of ignorance and complacency I have not previously taken any action to control olive fly in my olive grove. I tend to be guided by my neighbours who, as fly infestation has not been a major problem in this area recently, don't put out fly traps. Last y...

Olive Fly (Dacus Oleae)

Olive fly infestation seems particularly bad in this area (Agios Vasilios) this year with my own crop devastated, any other olive growers on the forum have a similar problem?

Re: Reading Recomendations for Maud

I couldn't agree more Warwick, except to say that I would not recommend anything which fell into category 2 and 3 and that you should perhaps have added a category 4 - Great works of literature under which I would include the Kazantzakis novel. 'Great works of literature' - how pompous, can't belie...

Re: Reading Recomendations for Maud

1 Some are purely factual, like the history and travel books mentioned. 2 Some tell a story. The story might be based on fact and may vary from sticking closely to real events to being mainly fiction set around some event. 3 Some appear to tell a story but really the story is just a contrivance on ...

Re: Buying a car in Crete

Go to Supercars Chania and speak to the owner Manolis he's a great guy and speaks very good English, Manolis and his uncle will organise all the paperwork and chauffeur you around the various offices, making it as simple as buying a car in the UK. On the first occasion I bought a car from Supercars ...
