Re: Taking care of Molly

Thanks Graeme, I am happy to report that we have found someone to take care of Molly during our Xmas trip back to the UK. We have previously used the website http://www.mindmyhouse.com to find house and pet sitters for longer periods and will almost certainly use the service again in the future Peter

Taking care of Molly

Although cat lovers Monica and I vowed when we built our house on Crete that we would not have a cat – it simply was not practical as we split our time between the UK and Crete.

Re: Vehicle Testing

Is your vehicle inspection, KTEO, up-to-date? If not, now might be the time to get it done. Additional fines of €150 begin on 1 October. This is in addition to the existing fines. Also they will be applied automatically through the Taxisnet system. Warwick Thanks for this information Warwick, check...

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

The ever-helpful Hitek Sound & Vision have provided me with a link to a Skylogic branded site where I am able to see my current data usage, bigblu still resolutely ignore all requests for help.

Re: bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

bigblu - formerly Europasat, formerly Tooway

The dreadful experience of many posters mirrors my own recent experience. Ironically this decline in customer service level has coincided with the much hyped re...

Re: Small World
