Re: Currencyfair

Your posts were hardly a model of clarity but not to worry. ......................, Keep up. With that attitude to someone who's previously offered information that might be useful I shan't be attempting to keep up with you as I'll be ignoring any future posts of yours. I consider your final comment...

Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

It works well on car windscreens and headlights. I know it's a commercial product but dishwasher rinse stuff like Finish is good on windows - about a dessert-spoonful in a bucket of warm water. I apply and clean with a coarse cloth and dry with absorbent paper (or newspaper on the rare occasions we ...

Nobody will beat the French at ATC strikes. Usually they don't bother to tell anyone about them.

Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

Fillipos it is great to read you are fit and well despite getting on to be a παππούs - I hope that means you don't take any e.g. bp medications, blood thinners et al. I have two each of great-nephews and great-nieces, age range 3 to 18, but the likelihood of παππούs-hood minimal. My son is determin...

Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

I speak from experience .I had to give up the demon drink due to health problems .Namely severe heart burn and constant pain in the chest .I have the odd one but no more nights getting drunk on the stuff! ( well maybe the odd night ,probably once a month ,well maybe twice.). That's an entirely diff...

Re: Money Moving Post Brexit

my accountant has told me I must use my debit card as much as possible, and have been told by someone else that fines will be imposed if you don't use credit/debit cards. Things may have changed and it's the first I've heard of fines for non use of cards. My understanding is that Greek taxpayers wi...

Re: Money Moving Post Brexit

Bearing in mind we're due for another financial crash at any time we've recently taken to spreading the lumps into different accounts and also converting rather more than usual into cash rather than keep everything in digital form. When the banks freeze up again we'll still be able to buy food. Hav...

Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

I think the Lady meant it was not a good drink for the liver and your health ....otherwise its a good drink! What makes you assume that? Even if your guess is right (which I suspect it isn't) does it matter what Tweet Tweet's reason is for condemning the stuff with a sweeping. "..........It is...

In your opinion. Some of us quite like it but I agree there are many different ones, some of which are not very pleasant.

Re: Money Moving Post Brexit

Ever since buying a house here (1998) we've had money paid into UK banks and periodically transferred blocks here as required every a few months. Bearing in mind we're due for another financial crash at any time we've recently taken to spreading the lumps into different accounts and also converting ...

Re: lapidary items or stone tumbler

There are loads of these items on Amazon and if you see something you want have a look on Amazon's German site; I've quite often found items there cheaper than the UK site sometimes because of lower shipping costs, sometimes just lower item price. Also, if paying in Euros there're no currency exchan...

Re: Motorcycle tyres

Quite right Kookla. When I wrote my first post I included George and Michalis who's a bit further along the road, on the right just past the Highway junction, near the little church. Then I edited that post and must have accidentally deleted the other suggestions. George repaired a tyre for me about...
