Furniture Disposal

We are finally replacing two leather recliners we brought with us from the UK. They are 15 years [ish] old so 'tired' and don't think selling them is reasonable. Is there any designated area for disposing of them?

Re: Bicycle Shop in Kalyves

Nikos has a good range and worth trying a bit of a haggle with - I will deny saying this of course :) He will also do ongoing service for the bike.

Re: Vodafone 4G

1, I got the announcement on the 10th. Don't worry it's not a huge [any?] step forward :lol: 2. I listen to Radio 2 when working and sometimes when walking the dog.

Vodafone 4G

Since the announcement that the 4G network is 'ready for action' and the SMS saying to reset my phone can't get any service and it appears to have wiped my PAYG balance of all minutes, texts and Mbs.
Anyone else have a problem?

By forcing utility monopolies to supply a 'Wholesale Product' then competition can enter a market that would otherwise be closed due to the cost of establishing, and inefficiency, of creating another electrical network.

Airport Delays

Anyone heard of unusual delays at Xania due to the Schengen/non Schengen flights? We have friends arriving on Sunday - on the pre-dawn Norwegian flight :? - so arrival should be ok but the return flight could be worrying if there are problems?

With my asphalt destroying 125cc I use the same site as for the car.
Am I doing something wrong or is this the 'moped' versus motorbike thing?
